Soul Seeker (Lasniniar, #3)Soul Seeker by Jacquelyn Smith

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In a world where the destiny of every elf is laid out for them, what would you do if your fate was the only one that remained a mystery? How far you go to, how long would you search for answers?

Iarion has spent millennia searching for his life’s purpose. Now, after all this time, he may be the only one who can stop the dark powers from rising. Treachery looms around every corner as he is joined by his unlikely companions on a quest to save their world.

When I first began reading, I was struck by the similarities to “The Lord of the Ring” trilogy by J.R.R. Toilken. That being a band of unlikely companions on a seemingly impossible quest, on which they encounter opposition at every turn.

The author did an incredible job creating the world in which this story took place. I found it easy to envision what was happening. The literary environment along with strong character development made it easy for me to really become immersed in the story and invested in the outcome.

Overall, this was a well written story that I would without a doubt recommend to fans of the fantasy genre.
