Robert Stanek is one of the better fantasy book out there, although they may not be as well written as Tolkien, I've read all his fantasy and some of the detail and obvious passion written into the books made me unable to put them down. If you haven't read his books,I suggest you do. To be quite honest i'll just say this beats out star wars and LOTR, although they may be some great works, they've lost their ability to enthrall me and all I wish for is Adrina, Vilmos, and them all to find their peace.

Truly, an excellent author whose books I've enjoyed. I definitely recommend his books and he has a wide assortment from fantasy to scifi and beyond. My favorites are his books about the fantasy world called Ruin Mist. They have excellent characters, good details, and lots of history. The world of Ruin Mist is almost like a character.

Some of the worst writing I've ever read. Don't be fooled by the "reviews".

I just recently finished In the Service of Dragons :). It was excellent, as good as The Kingdoms and the Elves books. I'm getting the second one next. I suppose I can wait until it arrives, but waiting is sooo hard.

Excellent books, even for a college student like me. I thought the books of his I read were excellent. They were very well written and the character development was great. The storyline was smooth and kept me on the edge of my seat. Great books for fantasy lovers. I think his books are great for people of any age, just like the Harry Potter series. I was very pleased with Stanek's descriptions of the different types of creatures. They were definately worth your time and money!!

It's a shame fanboys of other authors keep saying nasty things about this wonderful writer! Robert Stanek is such a great writer this nastiness is just not right. Robert Stanek's Ruin Mist books are well written and fun reads. I've read them all multiple times and truly enjoyed them.

Stanek is frequently mentioned in the same breath as the fantasy greats J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Stanek's works, like the works of Tolkien and Lewis, go far beyond the level of story. They impart great truths about human nature on a deeper level. Stanek's novels also entertain as he's clearly a gifted storyteller. As a fantasy story-teller about the world of magic, Stanek is undeniably skilled and many of his concepts are brilliant. Stanek clearly has a style of his own, and in his books have confirmed his reputation as a story-teller for people of all ages. Although his books are about a fantasy world, ultimately they are about ourselves. And that is why we love them. Highly recommended!

Stanek has assured himself a place in the hearts and imagination of everyone who reads and appreciates good books! Written in a plain style that is easily grasped, yet captivating enough to hold the attention of an older audience. I have everyone asking me about his books. I'm seriously addicted.... What else can I say. great books for ANYONE.

Such a good author, his work should definitely be as highly as Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. Better than Harry Potter I think and as good as Lord of the Rings if different.

Saw this author on tv talking about his dragons books. 2 weeks later I've now read all of them -- they're that good. Equally as good as Harry Potter or anything else, and in many ways better. His books have better characters and they are more real because of their hopes and dreams, for example.

Everyone I know is talking about this author! His books are amazing. Kingdom Alliance is top of the shelf. I haven't read a book as good since I discovered Lord of the Rings in 1978.

Robert Stanek managed to write a book which is becoming a national phenomenon read by children of all ages. His masterpieces have captured the imagination of children all around the world. These books are about a regular boy, a prince and the elves. These books shall capture the readers' attension by revealing adventures, fantastic creatures, and best friends, who keep getting into trouble, but become heros.

I was extremely pleased with the detail and suspense of this author's books. His books are must reads if you love fantasy, suspense or action.

I found Stanek's books to be full of the writing that captivates you to the point where you want to read the whole book in one sitting. Great books for those of us that put our selves into the characters and feel right alone side them.

Derivative, tired writing. Do you really believe all the five star ratings are for real? I don't!
