The Turquoise Tower Review

The Turquoise Tower (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #6) 
The captivating sequel to A Guardian of Shadows.

In the mystical lands of the Great Realms, Angelica, Jovian, and Joya search for their kidnapped sister, Amber. Their quest has led them through many dangers and revelations, but nothing has prepared them for what’s about to come.

A dream reveals what Angelica and Jovian are, but what does it mean for their future? There’s little time to dwell on this, for the chaos dwarves, the scourge of the Realm of Earth, are gathering at the gates of the Guardian’s Keep. The dwarves have the stone Wyrders’ Bane, and they’ve shown they know how to unleash its plague upon all those who wield the magical force of wyrd. With casters neutralized, a mighty blow has been dealt to the allied forces. The dwarves and trolls attack the keep, and the struggle to survive the war in the north is upon them.

Angelica, Jovian, and Joya’s journey is far from easy, but the future looks even bleaker when visions of a gathering darkness in the west and a congregation of angels could mark the beginning of the final war on the Ever After.

My Review

I have to say that this is the book series every fantasy lover wants/has to read! Mr. Simmons has done it again!I wish I could write this entire review with exclamations but I'm sure that would dilute the integrity of my honest review. 

Since the first book that I have read by Travis Simmons I have been all in! I love the way he writes. His descriptions and details make the world the main characters live in seem breathtaking.  Walking and talking trees, centaurs, dwarfs, trolls, angels.... he has definitely gotten every race covered. If you love action and adventure or  if you're a mmo rpg gamer and/or love magic this is the saga for you. 

Mr. Simmons seamlessly attaches all of the books in this saga together.Every twist and turn leaves you longing to know what will happen next. You really grow with each character. Even characters that only appeared for short periods felt as though they could carry a story in a separate book of their own. For instance Caldamron and Laphrael. I would love to know more about them and where they are from.

The entire saga was great and I recommend it to every and anyone. Oh yeah and my favorite sibling would have to be ("drumroll please")...............Joya. She seemed to be not only the strongest but the most mature. She adapted well to everything that was brought before her. Never giving up or settling for less. 

So there you have it, the end of a saga. I guess I will eventually find something else to fill the void of the Lafaye siblings, but as of now I will briefly mourn the losses. Thank you Travis Simmons for the opportunity to read and review!

About the Author
Travis has been writing since he was 14.  He began writing a book called "The Calling of the Two" and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

"Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?" He always knew there was a "before" and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.
Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica's story has been one wild ride for him.  He has also written the Infernal Design series.

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels.   He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.

  1. Oh dear we will have to find you something to cheer you up lol xx Thanks so much for reviewing the saga xx

  2. I haven't read this series yet but intend to. I like the name Joya too.

  3. I'm so happy you love it! I'm working on one now that is a "pre" history to The Revenant Wyrd Saga. If you remember the markings on the Well of Wyrding when Grace went there, there were images that marked a time before written history . . . I'm working on that :-D It's been awesome reading your reviews. Glad you enjoyed the ending! It really couldn't have gone any other way.
