Item description for The Search for the Unnamed One by A. Akers Tracy...
Truths long hidden. Fears that must be faced. In a world that needs salvation, Only death can give it life. The Prophecy has come to life in Tearia, and the Temple wants nothing more than to see it dead. Whispers say the Unnamed One walks amongst them, and there is little doubt as to who that person is. Reiv is oblivious to the hopes turning in his direction, and equally ignorant of a plot being waged against him. He has no time for rumors or innuendos; he is too busy trying to build a life for himself. But the life he longs for will have to wait. A rebel movement is growing, and Reiv's cousin Dayn has joined the insurgents in their cause. Angered by Dayn's involvement, Reiv reverts to his old self-serving behaviors. He wants nothing to do with prophecies or rebellions, and isn't sure he wants anything to do with Dayn either. When tragedy throws Reiv into new turmoil, he finds himself facing a dangerous choice. Someone he loves is dying, and there is only one chance to save him. Will Reiv choose to be a Transcendor, fated to sacrifice his life for another? Or is he truly the Unnamed One, a hero destined for glory? One will save the life of an individual, the other that of an entire kingdom.

A nice follow-up to the original, but not quite as good as the author's first book. Apr 9, 2008
I have now read both of this author's books, and I must say her first book "The Fire and the Light" was by far my favorite. The first book I could not put down and read in 2 days. This second book was good, but it did tend to drag (especially in the middle) and took me much longer to read. It did not seem to have the same excitement and intensity as the first. However, I did enjoy it, and I am anxious to read the next book in the series.
Awesome Fantasy Series! Dec 3, 2007
I have read both The Search for the Unnamed One and The Fire and the Light (book one in the Souls of Aredyrah series). Book two does not dissappoint at all. It develops the characters further along adding even more excitement and love interests. The Search for the Unnamed One has both, but also includes battles and personal, political, religious strife. There's a pretty big ending involved as well.
Book two includes a character index complete with pronunciations, character portraits by the same artist who did both beautiful covers for books one and two (Annah Hutchings), and an equaly exciting tidbit from the third book to come in the series. After reading the final chapter, I thought, wow, everything has come to its conclusion, how could book three possibly compare. But wow-wow, the excerpt included in book two from book three seems to turn things up another notch (if that is possible). Now, I can't wait for it!
Years from now, the Souls of Aredyrah series is going to be a must-have for ALL fantasy readers (yes, ALL).
Can't wait for the third! Oct 23, 2007
I have read both published titles in Akers' The Souls of Aredyrah Series. I was thankful that I bought them both at once because once I started I couldn't put them down. I enjoyed them immensely and have recommended that our school librarian purchase them as soon as possible. I think our high school students will really enjoy the story. As a teacher, it's refreshing to see a good story with some excellent teaching/talking points. There's so much to work with in these stories to help our students explore issues such as tolerance, understanding, compassion, and forgiveness. I highly recommend these books and anxiously await the third in the series.
