About the Trilogy
Niv’leana’s serene life in the beautiful Jeweled Woods is turned upside down when an unexpected visitor informs her that she possesses great power. As an infant, her abilities were shrouded for her own protection. Now nearing adulthood, she is invited to return to her ancestral home and join the magical order of the Ael’Shanar.
In the first book, The Bravest of Souls, Niv struggles against her brutal evil cousin, Vorea, who is trying to seize control of the ancient order. The price she had to pay to save the world is devastating. The second and third books follow Niv as she tries to put back the pieces of a shattered city and devastated personal relationships, and concludes in an epic struggle for the very future of the content.
The Bravest of Souls Reviews
Before long though, the characters will draw you in. They can be impulsive and impetuous, but that adds to the story. They are also intelligent and the plot is of magic and mayhem with a sprinkling of romance salted within.
John Collins, Editor, The Weird Review
I’m one of those readers who, if they enjoy the book, will read and re-read it many times. This one is already on my ‘will read again’ list.
I thought this was a well-written, thought-out book. It is very interesting – I didn’t want to put it down. The story, in many places, keeps you on the edge of your seat – anxiously waiting for what will happen next. I can’t wait until the next book comes out!
Robert has created an amazingly beautiful and complicated world in this series. The characters are well developed and quite unique. The story line is well enough told to draw you in and keep you interested from beginning to end. This world is full of wonder and magic, of love and war, of sorrow and joy. There are lessons to learn on a path to stop evil and sinister opponents. There is love and separation from those you love but always there is the will to conquer the foe whatever form he may be. I loved it and can’t wait for the next one!
The first thing I did after finishing The Bravest of Souls, was I got Rebirth, the next book in the series. The plot and mythos of the world were compelling, especially for a first book. The characters were interesting and distinct; I found myself rooting for them to make the right choices. This is a book about a 20 something crossing the bridge into adulthood; the time when you realize that your life is changing and the choices you make are exciting and forge a path to the rest of your life. Of course in an high fantasy novel, there are secrets that the character discovers, including surprising abilities. I look forward to more books by Mr. Oliver. Please keep writing so I can keep reading!
I give this author a five-star review and two thumbs up for writing such an enthralling story line. I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the sequel.
This is a wonderful tale of the confusion and growth of a young woman charged with a seemingly impossible task. Her journey of growth into her powers aided by close friends and a few surprise allies is an enthralling page turner!
