Reviewed first for author
Title: .The Thoughtmaster’s Conduit (FANTASY)
Author: .Kerry Orchard
Line/Publisher: .New Concepts Publishing
Release Date: .2001
ISBN: 1586083007
Highly Recommended 5 stars

Rhan has killed his half brother and is sentenced to serve a year in the salt mines. That he had cause for the killing has been taken into account by the Council of Elders, thus he is not sentenced to death. However, before the year ends he may wish that he had been. Adding to Rhan’s sentence; his left arm will be shackled lest he use his special power.

Dlrow is overrun by a group of strange beings who mean to take over the world. They practice dark magic, manage to subvert many of the dragons and damage the ones who hold this world’s power in balance until only chaos ensues. It is left to Rhan to become the hero he must in order to save his world. He, Vero the thief, Alisha, and Rhan’s brother Taoe are thrown into brutal struggle with the Daha’et as the Wakanee circles are rendered helpless.

This tale of past times set in forests and mountains, amidst pools of lava and strange beings is an entertaining read. The Thoughtmaster’s Conduit is a work in which writer Orchard has created a nicely sketched world and peopled it with a throng of engaging, well developed characters who envelop the reader and keep them reading. Her gamut of individuals runs from the truly horrific to the humorous, from hero to villain and most everything in between.

Orchard’s writing is filled with rich detail, with an emphasis on feelings, and, sights and sounds. Vibrant dialogue between Orchard’s interesting array of characters is creditable and serves to move the tale along at an ever increasing clip. The Thoughtmaster’s Conduit is a must read for those who enjoy the Tolkien type of fantasy genre in which strange and wondrous beings people a strange and wondrous world. The action is fast paced producing an altogether enjoyable read.
