CSFF Blog Tour : The Ale Boy's Feast by Jeffrey Overstreet

This months CSFF blog tour is on a book called, The Ale Boy's feast by Jeffrey Overstreet. It is the final to the great "AuraliaThread" series. Here is my review that I did on Ravens Ladder the second to last book to the series. Below is my praise on this wonderful series and a little information on The Ale Boy's Feast and the author.
First thing first... you must read this series in order or you will be lost. I learned that the hard way from reading Ravens Ladder before book one and two.

Book 4 of the Auralia Thread series

The king is missing.
His people are trapped as the woods turn deadly.
Underground, the boy called Rescue has found an escape.

Hopes are failing across The Expanse. The forests, once beautiful, are now haunted and bloodthirsty. House Abascar's persecuted people risk their lives to journey through those predatory trees. They seek a mythic city - Abascar's last, best hope for refuge - where they might find the source of Auralia's colors.

They journey without their king. During a calamitous attempt to rescue some of his subjects from slavery, Cal-raven vanished.

But his helper, the ale boy, falling through a crack in the earth, has discovered a slender thread of hope in the dark. He will dare to lead a desperate company up the secret river.

Meanwhile, with a dragon's help, the wandering mage Scharr ben Fray is uncovering history's biggest lie - a deception that only a miracle can repair.

Time is running out for all those entangled in The Auralia Thread. But hope and miracles flicker wherever Auralia’s colors are found.

  1. Wow, quite the praise, Ryan. Sounds like you were taken by it more than I was. I'm very, very happy that WaterBrook published this series for people who love it like you describe.


  2. Thank you Becky for always leaving me a comment on my CSFF tours :-) I did greatly enjoy this series... not one of my all time favorites, but it for sure deserved some good praise! I am very happy that WaterBrook published the whole series... I'm so tired of unfinished series.
