Review of ‘Labyrinth Quest’

Posted on Updated on

M’rain is on the threshold of womanhood, but she is restless and longs to know more than just the desert world in which her village is located. One day, while out food gathering, she wanders far, and after taking shelter in a cave, is taken captive by a band of women who are under the thrall of a mad man who claims to have magic powers. With the help of the enigmatic lizard, Glick, M’rain escapes and makes her way through the labyrinth of tunnels and into a land like known she’s ever known. Glick informs her that she is the chosen one, a Traveler, who can transit the labyrinth and serve as the link between the two people. But first, she must free those held by the mad man.

Labyrinth Quest by Yvonne Hertzberger is fantasy fiction at its best. The author creates a believable world, inhabited by believable creatures. Her characters feel real, and I found myself cheering for M’rain and her newfound love, P’puck, as they jockeyed back and forth concerning their feelings for each other. Hertzberger can put a lot of meaning in a few words, and the images conjured up by her prose were fantastic.

This is a story that begs for a sequel—perhaps the story of M’rain and P’puck’s heirs. Loved it. A five-star book!
