    1. My full, raving review is at Onlinebookclub forumsinebookclub/viewLet me just say though that I loved the book, it was very well edited, and it is one of my new favorite fantasy series!! There is a metaphysical aspect or explanation of things that transcends the usual magic element intrinsic to the fantasy genre. That was my favorite part of this book. I am on to book two follow me my fantasy loving friends!!

    2. There's action upon action in this fast-paced tale. It's a traditional quest story, and a fine example of the genre. The book opens with a man about to die, and we expect the rest of the book to be about how he got there, but this author is more subtle than that, and gradually we discover layer upon layer of surprises. There is not a dull page, right up to the properly satisfying ending, with its chilling little epilogue hinting at the possibility of a sequel, although the ability of this book t [...]

    3. The author throws a lot of characters at us in quick succession as she assembles her ensemble cast of unwilling adventurers, all fleeing persecution, all haunted by dreams and visions of things to come—the same dreams and visions. I thought for sure I’d never be able to keep track of all the names, but she does a masterful job of making the voices and personas distinct from one another, likable, and compelling. Once her team of six, Tristan, Kex, Jarah, Blaidd, Tegan, and Adain, are finally [...]

    4. Great book!I liked this book very much. The author starts it off with an exciting scene where you are left with so many questions. Throughout the book she places another piece of that puzzle together. I enjoyed The Six. I enjoyed how these characters worked together and it was interesting to see them grow as the book progressed! The final chapter leaves you wanting more!

    5. This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.Unfortunately the only reason I even finished the book is because of the reason above.First of all, the narration was excellent. Jeff Hays was great at distinguishing the different voices and accents so I never questioned which character was speaking. Though this was a bit ruined by the quality of the production - the volume was pretty variable dependi [...]

    6. "The Six and the Crystals of Ialana has an intriguing start with the death scene of six people chosen to save their race. The story quickly moves 500 years into the future and Katlynn Brooke, the author, starts introducing her six main characters who are having a recurring dream that is becoming stronger and more frequent.We are first introduced to Jarah and his journey. He has led a simple life until the dreams start. The dreams become intrusive in his daily life along with the sense that somet [...]

    7. The Six, and the Crystals of Ialana is a captivating fantasy book that is suitable for everyone from young teenagers upwards.

We meet the six main characters as they experience the power of mysterious, shared dreams. These turn out to be memories of themselves in a previous lifetime, and thus begins a new chapter in their journey. Things went disastrously [...]

    8. An ideal first read for young adults attracted by the fantasy genre.Fundamentally this novel is a Quest story. Three village boys, Jarah, Blaidd and Adain are forcibly conscripted into the army. Tristram, a young soldier press ganged some years before them, helps them escape. The escape is instigated by the onset of the mysterious dreams they all share. The dreams set them on a quest of discovery.

    9. wow, I love this story and this is the first book that I have readfrom this author. I think she has differently made a fan out of me. her writing flows nicely and very easy to read. Granted this book hasmany chapters but honestly this book is worth the read. This author knows how to pull a reader in. I found a quote that I really do like alot because it just sums up this book just perfectly and many of uswould understand " I don't dream like they do, he thought. They must be magicked.My dreams a [...]

    10. The Six and the Crystals of Ialana is a fun read with tons of adventure. There are a lot of characters in the book that make you feel like you need to get focus on reading it or otherwise you're gonna mix between one character to another personality or specialty. It's a friendly read that can attract all ages. For me personally, reading The Six and the Crystals of Ialana is like combining The Hobbit and chronicles of Narnia. The author writes in very detail so that the readers are able to pictur [...]

    11. A fantastic read!My heart broke when I read the first couple of pages.Jarah, the baker's son, who will one day take over the business but doesn't wish to. I feel sorry for him but couldn't wait to know more about his journey and future.3 boys. 3 girls. (a.k.a. The Six). Friends. 1 boy. The Enemy. A dangerous mission. Will they succeed or fail? Will they be betrayed or not? Such an amazing and descriptive read - really enjoyed it!Such a compelling story. I never wanted to stop reading!! But, of c [...]

    12. Adain works in the bakery in his village, but he longs for something more in his life. When he and his friends start having the same dream they realise that there is more to the world than they thought. After they are 'drafted' into the army they go on to meet three girls who also share their dream. They learn that they must protect a sacred crystal or risk their home being plagued by darkness. This was a captivating tale and I enjoyed reading it. I would recommend it to YA readers.

    13. A whimsical tale of magical proportion! Follow (the) six eager children through their adventure; as they search for the meaning of their destiny. Faced with abominable creatures and malicious people, they are impelled by the force of the coveted crystals. The six form a bond though interdependent dreams which eventually come to fruition.Katlynn has a capricious way of telling their story and I loved the esoteric philosophy's abound.

    14. A YA fantasy, adventure novel, which follows the fate of Jarah, Adain, Blaidd, Djana, Tegan and Kex as they attempt to recover the healing crystal.This has all the classic elements of a quest, and should appeal to fantasy lovers of all ages. Danger and mystery follow the six and make for a compelling read, as the twists and turns unfold.Highly enjoyable.

    15. Just posted a review of This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. After reading this book it was hard for me to admit to myself that I had finished. I wanted to just stay in the wonderful world she created.

    16. Seven young people must figure out what happened five hundred years before they were born. A lost crystal to be found and more fantastic action. What an amazing fantasy story and I received this book as an ARC. Just loved it from beginning to end

    17. Eh. I've been trying to read this for ages at the gym, but I just can't care about it. I'm not really sure why. I was okay with the basic story, but when we got to the giant-guy-thing, I just couldn't care any more. So, DNF.

    18. I enjoyed this unique story. Although, if I was 100% honest, there are far too many characters to keep straight. I found myself confused and lost, especially at the climax. My Rating: 3 stars

    19. I really enjoyed this story. Creative, well written, interesting and very entertaining. While the story is YA it has enough action and adventure to appeal to anyone who likes this type of story.I the synopsis tells enough about the story that I don't want to give anything else away. Definitely worth your time if you like Epic Fantasy Quest stories.Is there anything that Jeff Hays narrates that is not amazing? He has the ability to pull you into the story and keep you listening for hours on end. [...]

    20. “A complex, thrilling page-turner sure to delight fantasy fans everywhere.” -Bookappisodes ReviewsFULL REVIEW:Katlynn Brooke’s first book in the Ialana Series is sure to captivate teens and adults alike with its epic story. Brooke has created an incredibly complex world, complete with a 500-year-old history, to tell the story of ‘The Six’ – six teens/young adults who have a deep history they cannot at first recall. Regardless, they are destined to complete the quest they failed hundr [...]

    21. Reviewed by Maria Beltran for Readers' FavoriteThe Six and the Crystals of Ialana by Katlynn Brooke goes back hundreds of years in the past when the island of Mu’A was threatened by a horrible misfortune. Six of its best healers set out to stop the curse but one of them is a traitor.

    22. The Six and the Crystlas of Ialana isn’t normally the type of book I read. I went into the book with an open mind hoping that the characters would grab my attention. Let’s start there, the characters. This book has a huge cast of characters, first we have the Six, Jarah, Djana, Tegan, Kex, Tristan, and Adain. There is Blaidd, who is actually a seventh in the story, Irusan, and a host of other characters. When there are so many characters it isn’t always easy to connect. With that being sai [...]

    23. Interesting and enjoyable read for fantasy lovers everywhere. Brooke has brought together six lovable main characters with incredible past lives, and placed them in the magical world of Ialana.Join Jarah, Djana, Tegan, Kex, Tristan, and Adain as they escape the army, arranged marriage, and capture in their present lives, in order to follow strange dreams about their past lives. None of the Six know who they were or why they share dreams, but each of them agree to join together, unknowingly setti [...]

    24. The Six and the Crystals of Ialana. Book is presented well. Deserves a star. Formatting is good. That’s another star. The writing is clean. Third star. And the story is imaginative. Four stars. Properly edited for the most part. And there we have five stars.So why only three at the end of the day?For one simple reason. The author has a habit of telling rather than showing. This is a big problem that prevented me from getting into and enjoying the story. It is also a trait that separates most i [...]

    25. I’m a fan of this kind of fantasy, so The Six and the Crystals of Ialana was right up my alley. For such a complex story, it felt extremely short. The world building was done well, but the character development was a little lacking. The Six were very similar in characteristics and sometimes felt like the same person. I think a little more length, considering fantasy is usually on the longer side, might have helped in this aspect, allowing the reader more of a chance to get to know the characte [...]

    26. Good read! I thought that for heroic fantasy the author breezed through some development aspects within the book. Good heroic fantasy takes time and pages to develop & I thought the author scrimped in this area. I did however like the well enough to read it's sequel.
