      Review from my blog on this book:

      Auralia's Colors is written by Jeffrey Overstreet and is the first in the series. The story is about an orphaned girl who has the gift of colors (this really confused me since everyone else could see colors). There is also the story line for the prince of the kingdom and another kingdom is mentioned. A lot of the story is hung up on the prince's mother. I'm still confused over parts of it and frustrated by some of it. I'm not sure the whole story makes sense and I don't really want to spend money on the second book for more unanswered questions. It's not that I don't mind unanswered questions in a series, but the books need to make sense and move along. This one was just difficult to get through - and I like fantasy!

      Good Writer - Boring/Confusing Plot

      This book was a little too "artsy" for my tastes. It's clear that Mr. Overstreet is a good author, as the writing itself has good dialogue and descriptions (although be warned that there are a lot of made up phrases and creature names...which I think is just fine in a fantasy setting). However, the story/plot itself was boring and confusing. Since I could tell that the author was good with words/dialogue, I kept waiting for a real story to evolve (not just a thing with colors), but it was not to be. I confess that I only made it through 75% of the book, but if it didn't keep my interest by that point, it was not worth finishing (for me, at least).

      On another note, the story did not really have anything to do with Christianity (at least, not explicitly), but on the same token, I saw nothing morally wrong in the book, either.

      Also, I think another problem I had is that I could not relate to any of the characters and really root for anyone. Overall, I will consider reading other material from this author, but I will definitely pass on anything further in this series.

      My firiend bought this book. I started this book and was not impressed. If it is suppose to be a christian based book where the bible references. I told my friend don't read it she should send it back to you and complain. Not a good book or a good show on christianity like in other books I have bought from CBD.....

      This was the most interesting fantasy that I have ever read. It was as if the writer's pen was a paint brush, and was painting the book; as if the world was black and white. And when it got to the end the world was filled with colors. This is a very colorful book. I do recommend it to all fantasy readers.

      Auralia's Colors is a bit different of a fantasy than I am used to. It was somewhat darker than the stories I usually read. I found it in our local library and decided to try it out. the story was well written but I found the descriptions of the villains in the last chaper quite disgusting (kids may not want to read that chapter)and I definitely don't like it when a character I have come to like dies (I won't say who). But I hope that the later books in this series have a bit lighter a tone than this one. such books as this can depress me at time and afterward I must find a lighter book to read. But it is good to fight boredom or read on a rainy day.Try it. Who knows. you might like it more than I do. I just get tired of the dark tones in the movies, books, or just life in particular sometimes. I read as an escape. I preferr to escape into something wonderful and exciting. This book just didn't quite fit the bill for me.
