    One thought on “The Jasper Forest”

    1. Another book that I thoroughly enjoyed The first in this series was definately better, but this one has a great deal of charm and some wonderful characters to keep you reading.I wont bother covering what happens story wise or summerise, you can read the blurb for that I adore the characters in this book, and found it hard to dislike any of the main characters ignoring Terrel s horrid brother Jax of course , however, by the end of this book, Alyssa was starting to get a bit irritating, but I thin [...]

    2. My first thought is that I wish they d stop making the backs of these books sound so very cheesy.My second thought is that its hard to describe epic fantasy adventures in many ways that don t sound cheesy.Either way, with this series of books, I find that often the description on the back cover doesn t do the story justice Despite sounding like the most unoriginal piece of clap trap the world has ever seen, Julia Gray really does have a flair for pulling people into a story in such a way that yo [...]

    3. I was very happy with The Dark Moon , the first book of the Guardian cycle from Julia Gray And so it was with high expectations that I started the second one in this serie The Jasper Forest and unfortunately in my opinion it fell flat The story left out where Dark Moon ended, with an exiled Terrel drifting on his raft towards the continent of Macul, nearly dead from dehydratation The first part of the book relates the story of his rescue by the residents of a small village named Fenduca on the c [...]

    4. Great second book in the Guardian Cycle series This books follows on from The Dark Moon with the character of Terrel being washed up on the foreign continent of Macul where he is aided by fishermen before recovering and continuing his quest The book is part of a series and the narrative reflects this as the story progresses This is accomplished in a very proficient manner allowing the reader to experience many of the frustrations and excitements of the characters in a way that always strikes a c [...]

    5. I don t know if readers have been able to appreciate the subtle symbolism of Gray Wylie s imagery I found the idea of a floating hospice for pregnant women, mystics who s eyes are open when they re closed than when they re open, and a village buried in cloud, so evocative and thought provoking In a completely new setting, Gray continues to furnish us with a rich and compelling story There is enough continuity from the previous book, to maintain a sense of comfort and familiarity, but at the sam [...]

    6. Lovely story of a teenage boy already with the bad luck of being dumped at an orphanage and a disability that he doesn t let limit him but has 2 close friends that see him through.Terrell goes through an amazing journey where he has to strike out on his own to save his country, also a moving island from destruction Starting from the cliff hanger of an ending in the last book Terrell has floated across the sea to Vadanis, half dead two brothers save him from the sea and take him home to their min [...]

    7. In this book, Terrel continues his travels and gains some new skills and friends along the way I liked the first part of the book, but later things seemed rushed, especially the ending which used deus ex machina I expected better from Gray.I also don t like Alyssa too much in this book It seems she is keeping secrets from Terrel and I never really felt like she has genuine feelings for him I really don t understand why Terrel doesn t just dump her especially since he meets some new girls in this [...]

    8. this is a re read first read it in 2001 when it first came out Loved it then and just devoured it 4 days whist reading 3 other books at the same time

    9. Having read the first book, I am compelled to read this one soon I liked the first one very much and hope that this book will prove to be just as sweet as it s partner.
