Book Synopsis:
After their peaceful village, Riverbell, is raided by the foul monstrous skex, brothers Logan and Corbin Walker find themselves caught in a race against time, desperate to warn the capitol before the dangerous skex arrive to wreak the same havoc upon the unsuspecting people of Fal.
Never could they imagine, that this would only be the very beginning of their unforgettable journey, when Logan is suddenly exiled from the kingdom for a crime he did not commit. On the run, doggedly avoiding his own brother, sent to pursue the wanted criminal, can Logan Walker possibly hope to stay free long enough to unravel the Secrets of the Elders?
And So the Fourth Age of Acadia begins...
The World of Acadia
Ages long past, forced to abandon the surface, mankind descended inside the core of their planet, fleeing an impending xenocide at the hands of the mighty Jotnar invaders and settling a new homeland among the deep forests in the wide caverns of Vanidriell, under the light of the Great Crystal Baetylus.

Book Review:

Secrets of Elders was a very creative and well written story that kept me intrigued until the last page. I loved that there was always some kind of adventure going on and I also enjoyed the very different types of animals, plants, and bugs there were featured throughout the story. I would have to say that Corbin Walker was my favorite character in the book, mainly because I think he was trying to be the most reasonable one. I am looking forward to read the next book in series!
