"Redinger is skilled at building up enough suspense to keep the reader turning pages." - Kirkus Discoveries "Readers will delight ... The Sylvan Horn is a solidly entertaining start to what is sure to be an intriguing series." - ForeWord CLARION Reviews "Redinger interweaves a page-turning plot with a subtly beguiling poetic manner ... A magical world of elves, trolls, dryads, and druids is drawn in vivid colors and dreamlike majesty that nonetheless rings with a timeless veracity. The eternal themes of good versus evil, domination, aggression, corruption, and war feel true enough to the time and tenor of our day. The author even manages to work in creation myths and musings about predestination, the possible role of fate. In fact, the depth of mythic sophistication raises this novel above any simple pigeon-holing as a young-adult fantasy. A fantasy it may well be, but like any well-conceived fantasy, it speaks of a deeper truth. The suspense and action simply add to the fun." - The US Review of Books Awards: 2010 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Winner, 2010 Montaigne Medal Finalist (nominated for most thought provoking book), 2011 Indie Excellence Awards Finalist, 2011 International Book Awards Finalist, 2011 Eric Hoffer Award Finalist, Honorable Mention at the New England Book Festival Story: Before the days of men, there were elves. In a time they were great and powerful, the first dwellers, the brightest ray of dawn upon the earth. They brought light and music to the world and every breeze that stirs and wave that crashes still echoes with the wonder of the fair folk. But a foulness is brewing in the east, where men deal in sorcery. They summon dire forces, unleashing a terrible power into the world. And the elves, once immortal, now fade from the earth. But knowing that all sorcery comes from Runes that were carved ages ago, Efkin, a young elf lord, races to find and destroy the hidden Runes before all is lost. He sets out to recover the horn of his ancestors that long ago summoned the forces that shaped the world. Only the horn has the power to break the Runes. He journeys into the east, but comes too close to the heart of sorcery and does not dare blow the horn. If he is tainted by the poison of the Runes the horn will sound a ruinous note that could spell the end of the earth.
