Author of Knightfall

Reviewed by Author Anna del C. Dye for ReadersFavorite.com

Ravenna is the main character in Knightfall, a well-written and fast paced tale. As the tale starts, Revenna, an inexperienced druidess, has a nightmare that she has had before. It not only troubles her sleep but also that of her Master druid. For that reason, she is sent on a journey to find others who can tell her what the nightmare means. Hashaar is a merchant and friend of the people in Revenna’s village. He is assigned to accompany her on a dangerous trip that may take a month. As they travel, they find a wild elf who is searching for his kidnapped sister. She was stolen right after his village was attacked by a monster on a horse that leaves no tracks. Ohliaman, the wild elf, accompanies them since they are going his way. One night, as they stay in a town’s inn, a rascal becomes impertinent to Revenna. A dwarf named Bromm comes to the travelers’ rescue and has to run with them when things become unpleasant. Soon they discover that Bromm is on a mission of his own. A very special item was stolen from the dwarfs by the same monster who has Ohliaman’s sister; so he too joins them. Before they realize where the monster is going, a wizard joins them. Raftennon is most secretive, yet he knows that on Revenna’s shoulders rests the future of humanity...if humanity has a future. I enjoyed this high fantasy tale. It is clean, well done and a page-turner. The characters are well developed and easy to like. The writing is easy to follow and fluid. I recommend it for all from young adults to adults alike.

Knightfall is Canadian author Marc Labelle's first novel. An atrocious crime is committed, tainting the soul of a reputable knight for all eternity. A druidess has prophetic dreams and is accompanied by a loyal plainsman in her quest to understand their meaning. A wild elf pursues a demon that has destroyed his village and kidnapped his sister. A brave dwarf searches the land in the hope of finding clues as to who stole an irreplaceable, highly valuable relic from his people. A mysterious dark wizard tries to right a wrong carried out by one of his brethren. All these stories intersect in this captivating epic fantasy adventure. A clan of strangers, grouped together by circumstance and common interest must work together to hunt down a seemingly insurmountable evil. They strive to survive while waiting for ancient prophecy to materialize. This foretelling calls for an earthly female to rise and defeat the vile beasts. It is their only hope for survival. The writing is teeming with meticulously painted settings and vividly depicted characters. The author skilfully blends scenic detail, intriguing dialog and engaging turmoil. The result is a well paced, captivating story bound to grip a reader's interest. The debut novel is fluid, engrossing and bound to entertain any avid reader. The description of the opening heinous crime is fairly graphic and may not be suitable for younger readers. Barring the opening sequence, this book is highly recommended for fans of fantasy of all ages.
