But alas, a third of the way through it, I've decided to set it aside for a while if not forever

But alas, a third of the way through it, I've decided to set it aside for a while if not forever. Normally, I enjoy complex stories, but it seems like Wheeler was unable get control of it somehow - too many names, too many lose parts, not enough humanity. I just had trouble connecting with anyone in the story, which is a rare problem for me when I'm reading. So, Too much complexity and not enough life, love, and humanity.

Landmoor Author:Jeff Wheeler. Landmoor by Jeff Wheeler. I. He had been confined to a silent world of sleep. An engulfing blue light surrounded him that maintained the awful prison. He wanted to be rid of it, to sit and stretch and walk about. But the bond was powerful, and he couldn’t rouse himself from it. There was no hunger, no sense of thirst.

The warding has failed, and a powerful ancient magic is disturbed -- the Everoot. Thealos Quickfellow, a Shae from the kingdom of Avisahn, has left his homeland to learn first hand of the threat of the Bandit Rebellion. His life is forever changed when he meets the mysterious Sleepwalker known as Jaerod. For Thealos himself is one of the keys that can open a door to a Silvan artifact which can tame the forbidden side of the Everoot. As the valley of the kingdoms of Dos-Aralon and Avisahn grows weaker and weaker, the cruel Bandit Rebellion prepares to claim a stronghold in the south. There they will launch a new war by using the Everoot and its power to heal or destroy. Thealos and Jaerod must defy the powers of men, Shae, and other foes to reach the place where the conflict will begin - and where the dangerous Everoot is being harvested. A fortress called Landmoor.

In usual Jeff Wheeler fashion, the reader is assaulted by names, locations and references as if they're common knowledge. You are thrust into the fray, thrown into the pond and are expected to know how to swim. There are a lot of names of people, places, races, orders and associations that make absolutely no sense. Half way through the book, things are beginning to make a little bit of sense, but only because the same people are involved. Towards the end, some history is explained and things actually start connecting. Other than that, the story is nice, magic abounds and so does the action. Some mormon symbols and concepts pop up here and there, but not very obvious nor obnoxious. Overall a decent fantasy story with likable characters... if you can manage to make it through to the second half of the book, where things start to make sense.

This book hasn't been the usual compelling read that I've found with Jeff Wheeler books. However, now about half-way through, I'm beginning to look forward to my next chance to read it. Jeff Wheeler is an excellent author, who colors his worlds with wonderful descriptions that flesh out the characters and lend reality to his landscapes. I usually zoom through his books and am buying the next installment before ending a book. Will continue to read Jeff Wheeler books, and yes, I will buy the next book that follows Landmoor. Thanks

I really enjoyed this book and its sequel, Silverkin! The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it took a little while to get into it and it was a little confusing until I got way into it. That said, I have to admit that it may have just been me. I love to read, so to keep from spending too much time reading, I only allow myself to read when walking on the treadmill at 4mph. And where I work out there are television screens on loud all across the front of the treadmills. So maybe it was the fact that I was bouncing along when I read and the story was competing with The Price is Right or Eyewitness News that gave me trouble following things at first. Wheeler has created an interesting world with good, rich characters. But there were so many different groups, and within the groups so many different religions or philosophies or specially trained subgroups with their own name (within their group); I felt like he dumped them all on the reader a little too fast to keep straight. Other than that complaint, I loved the story. As I said, the characters are rich and believable, the story line is very interesting, the writing pulls the reader along, and I found that when things got real exciting I couldn't stand it and read even when I wasn't on the treadmill. If you enjoy a good fantasy adventure without the garbage that some of them contain, you should enjoy this book a lot.

Thealos Quicksilver is the son of a cloth barter. At an age where he is supposed to choose a calling, he instead leaves his homeland and venture out into the world, drawn by an unexplainable force, determined to learn firsthand about a growing force known as the Rebellion Army. He is instantly wanted as a fugitive, and as he flees those who are in his persuit, he meets a variety of characters who help him on his journey. During his adventure, he and his group discover that the Rebellion Army is preparing itself to invade the lands by using Everoot, a powerful and magical plant that is dangerous and deadly.

Thealos is a member of an elf-like society called Shae. He is impulsive, rebellious, and perhaps a bit selfish. Sheltered in his cityof Avisahn, he is naive about the outside world. As the son of a barter, he really has no survival skills and he quickly lands himself in trouble. But he is also headstrong and is driven by an instinct that he is needed for something very important. I think the author did a good job creating Thealos as the story's main character. He is relatable, likeable, and unlike most elf-like characters, he has vulnerabilities.

The supporting cast compliments Thealos's personality, each member bringing something to the group that helps to shape them as a whole. Jaerod is a Sleepwalker, a practitioner of magic and swordplay. He serves as Thealos's mentor and guide. Ticastacy is a human barmaid; she is a very caring person who can also be a bit fiesty. In a rocky relationship with a high ranking member of the Rebellion Army, she offers some (but limited) insight. Fluent is a drugaen (a dwarf-like being) who is a brawler and like a brother to Ticastacy. These are but a few of the many characters that make up Thealos's group.

The story is a little slow to get into because so much time is spent describing the world and developing the characters. It's quite confusing at first as there is a lot of jumping around. But if the reader pushes through, the story quickly picks up pace and becomes very intriguing. The setting is a little hard to picture at first, as far as how cities are located to one another, but I found that that was only a minor hindrance. I think there is a map included in the beginning of the book but on the kindle it was inconvenient to flip back and forth. The characters' personalities are nicely fleshed out, but most have backgrounds that are only briefly touched upon.

This story is a great read for anyone who into mideivel fantasy stories. I could not help myself but to be reminded of Lord of the Rings or World of Warcraft with some of the similar locations and races. I highly recommend giving this book a try if you like action and adventure.

Jeff Wheeler is one of the few authors who can transport me from passively reading to actually becoming a part of the story.. He starts slowly with the required background but before you know it, you are submerged in a most amazing world with characters and plots that are beyond imagination.. This is one outstanding writer. I think I only have two more of his books to read before having to wait for the newest one. I truly hope someone has the insight to bring these amazing series to the Silver screen.. Thanks, Jeff never stop writing please..

After reading the Muirwood series I was keen to read this book. I found that the introduction of numerous characters with no backgrounds to support them made for a very confusing start to the book. I persevered and hoped that the slow and confusing storyline would improve. It did slightly but it's shining moments were few. Great idea for a book - disappointing read.
