Become lost in the adventure, love, loyalty, and mystery of The Treasure of Isian!
The Treasure of Isian is great story with intriguing characters. At times I thought the pacing was off, but I was still enjoying the story. Elani is a fabulous character with lots of heart and she had many adventures. Garin too was enjoyable and I really liked the turnaround he made from the beginning of the story. He at first was a spoiled prince who didn't care much for anything or anyone but himself. I also enjoyed how Garin started seeing Elani through different eyes. Serena did a great job with the supporting characters too. Ander and Jared were great surprises.
4 out of 5 stars. Book 2, The Alliance of Isian, is also out and I plan on reading it soon.
