Spell Breaker Book Review

I have a really awesome new series to share with you in Book 1 of The Chronicles of Eledon: Spell Breaker, which is written by Joni Parker. If you will remember she wrote the Black Elf series and this is a continuation of the Black Elf but now in her real name, Lady Alexin.
With the powers bestowed on her by her Titan ancestors, Lady Alexin is finally able to break the spell and halt the storms which have kept the inhabitants of Seaward Isle prisoner for centuries. At long last, the Elves can return to Eledon. Yet success may come at a terrible price. The mortals on Seaward Isle are given the option to return to Eledon with the Elves or to remain on the island. The evacuation is complicated and many, including the journalist Olivia and her husband John, are left behind, awaiting the return of the Elf ships.  
Zenon, the Crow-beast charged by Zeus with maintaining the storms and keeping the Titan prisoner is enraged to discover Alex has escaped. In his wrath, he all but destroys Seaward Isle and its remaining inhabitants with a devastating flood. Though Eledon is beautiful and Alex enjoys the protection and encouragement of Lord Odin and Prince Darin, it’s clear the problems of this civilization run deep.  
Lord Odin resumes his seat on the High Council, his position is threatened by plots and political intrigue. And despite being named by the Mentors as the Keeper of the Keys, Alex is disillusioned to find she is rejected and reviled by those who consider her a mere “half-blood” Elf. She wants to return to Seaward isle, the only home she has ever known.  
When Zenon discovers her whereabouts and threatens Eledon, the Elves have little choice but to agree. But there is almost nothing left of the home she once knew and the survivors on Seaward Isle implore the Elves to use their magic to send them back to Earth. But while the Elves are able to open a portal between the two worlds, they cannot guarantee a time or place to which the mortals will return and. caught between her own past and an uncertain future, Lady Alexin is faced with the only choice that really matters—to follow her heart.
My Thoughts:
If you are like me and enjoyed the series, The Black Elf, then you are going to love the new series where The Black Elf becomes Lady Alexin and returns to her grandmother's home, Eledon.
But, things are not so great in Eledon, just like on the island of Seaward, nothing is at it seems and Alex needs to keep her wits about her. Within arriving at her grandmother's home, things heat up almost instantly and enemies are formed that she didn't even know she had. Even her grandmother is acting weird.
She is sent on more missions, just like she was on Seaward Isle, and frankly, she doesn't mind it at all because she is getting such a chilly response from a lot of people, including some whom she thought were her friends. Who can she trust? Who is the enemy?
Even though Lord Odin sought desperately to return home, even he is unsettled at how bad things have gotten since they have been gone. Well, it's been almost 1,000 years, so I guess things do tend to go to hell in a hand-basket, pardon my language. Nobody seems to know whom to trust, so they must all rely on the people who came with them from Seaward Isle, and even a few of them might not be so loyal now that they are home.
I really can't wait to read the next book! Things are sure to get interesting just like they did on Seaward Isle!
Happy Reading!
