Kurzbeschreibung

A Treespeaker is one with his forest, moving with its spirit, inseparably bound to it.

Terrifying visions warn Jakan that a visitor to his tribe is not who he claims to be. As the villagers fall under the spell of the stranger’s mind-bending sorcery, Jakan grows desperate to be rid of him. Events take a sinister turn when he accuses the stranger of sacrilege — and it is Jakan, not the outsider, who is expelled from the forest.

Join Jakan on his perilous journey across a blighted land as he searches for the secret that will save his people — and himself.

"Treespeaker is an intricately woven book that reads like an old oral history. It flows beautifully; with the story so deeply rooted in nature, the writing seemed to take on a life of its own and bloom in its own right."
Sift Book Reviews

5.0 von 5 Sternen A different, subtle work of fantasy 27. April 2011
Von Dave - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
After reading some very good fantasy novels by indie authors, the cover, blurb and title of Treespeaker caught my attention. Pretty soon I understood that this novel is different from the fantasy I normally love. It lacked the epic battles of knights in full armor, the fireworks of mages and powerful wizards. Instead, I got tangled in the roots of a forest village tribe, protected by the intricate, subtle magic of the Tree God, Arrakesh. No in-your-face bombastic magic, but an unassuming, delicate and organic magic that is quite unique and interesting. And despite the lack of epic battles, Treespeaker has plenty of tension and enough action to keep reading chapter after chapter.

I don't like spoilers in reviews, so I won't tell too much about the story. The main character, Jakan, the Treespeaker (a sort of shaman) of his tribe, encounters drama after drama as a stranger succeeds breaking through the protective barrier of the forest. With all these setbacks, Jakan tries to cling to his belief in Arrakesh and travels far away and at great risk to save his tribe.

The depth and development of characters is very good in this novel, and we see Jakan and is son struggle with issues which are also part of our lives, and very identifiable. This book deals with themes which are universal, and add to its depth. The writing is excellent, in a clear and sober tone, and - it is a word I keep coming back to - subtle. And again an indie novel which is very well edited and with a clear and pleasant layout.

One minor complaint I could find was with the plot, which is fairly linear and lacks the convoluted intrigue I like in epic fantasy. However, there are enough twists and the novel has sufficient pace to keep the reader involved. And the ending is quite nifty, with an excellent twist which again shows the unique magic displayed and the subtlety of author Katie Stewart. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and hope there will be a sequel soon.

I have one final comment. The lack of graphic violence, explicit language and all that stuff which I normally read and even like in novels was simply refreshing. That makes Treespeaker appropriate for all readers, and especially for those who search for novels that have no Content Advisory. I would recommend this novel to anyone.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A beautiful book from its cover to the end. 18. Oktober 2011
Von Sharon Tillotson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Treespeaker is a beautiful book from its cover to the end.

Stewart has woven an allegorical tale of faith. Faith in an omniscient force, faith in life and faith in oneself.

And what a tale it is. The book has all the elements that make a story inviting. The characters are engaging and flawed, the plot intricate and original throughout, the settings fully realized, the writing good.

The author states somewhere that the book is not about good vs. evil and it is not. It is more a story about a conflicted human who is presented with overwhelming challenges, one of which is a man who engages in evil. He questions his faith, but finds the strength to fight the good fight of life and re-birth.

Along the way, the reader is taken into a world most enchanting. Jakan, our hero, is a type of Shaman who loses some of his supernatural gifts just as a powerful sorcerer arrives to threaten his village. In order to defeat this evildoer he must leave his beloved and safe forest and seek out a stranger he met many years before. The road is full of strange and dangerous occurrences, and peopled with strange and wonderful creatures.

I have not read much Fantasy, so I cannot say if it would appeal to those who do, but I can say it is skilfully written and delightful. If this book is indicative of Fantasy I can see myself reading more in the same genre. I will certainly watch for future books from this author.

The ending has a wonderful, imaginative twist the reader could never have foreseen...

4 stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intricately woven 24. Juli 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Treespeaker is an intricately woven book that reads like an old oral history. It flows beautifully; with the story so deeply rooted in nature, the writing seemed to take on a life of its own and bloom in its own right. A 4.5.

The beginning of the book is intriguing, and introduces the reader to Jakan and the ritual of treespeaking. The author is great at establishing relationships/emotional connections between the characters however I would have liked a little more background as to how exactly this world functioned sooner. I recognize this may have influenced how well the author established the characters emotions at the beginning.

About 30 pages in, I became really invested in the book and it lasted until Treespeaker's very last line. Once I knew Beldror was nothing but trouble, I needed to know what he would do.

I liked how other characters, like Jakan's son Dovan, slowly gained importance in the novel. The constant growth and introduction of characters kept the story from getting stagnant.

I especially loved how the author made Treespeaker relatable, and in parallel, to our own world: wiping out their neighbor's forest because they had destroyed their own before realizing the trees were important. I'm not sure if the author was trying to address environmental and religious issues with her book--but if so, it was the perfect way to do so. It was subtle and not at all preachy, I could just see similarities between her fictional world and our world embedded throughout the book.

Treespeaker is solidly written, flows smoothly, with good grammar and amazing descriptions. The author spread lore and religion very well throughout and brought it together with some surprises in the end. The book ended superbly--I wondered for a long time how exactly she would convincingly tie it all together--and she did.

After reading treespeaker, all I want to do is lose myself in a forest - and hopefully meet some enchanted creatures along the way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen From tiny acorns..... 23. April 2011
Von cladonald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What threatens the people of Arrakesh? Does Jakan, the Treespeaker, have the resources and faith to help them survive?
The Arrakesh communities' race against time is matched by the fast pace of Stewart's suspense-laden, breath-taking, story-telling.
From the first chapter, this book had me hooked. The intricate, twisting plot is deftly woven and the engaging characters reflect our human frailties. As for the ending.....I'm not going to spoil it by telling!
Don't let the bargain price and fact that this is a debut novel mislead you. "Treespeaker" is impeccably edited and practically punctuation-perfect. A novel that could compete effortlessly, as it stands, with its' published peers. This could be the acorn of Katie Stewart's writing career.

5.0 von 5 Sternen TreeSpeaker - utterly brilliant 3. Mai 2011
Von RJK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I loved this book from start to finish. I can't believe it hasn't been picked up by a mainstream publisher yet. The fantasy world created by the author becomes incredibly real to the reader. The tragedy and victory of a forest tribe mattered to me as though I was one of them. A book which is hard to put down and one you don't want to come to an end. I can't wait for the sequel.
