Review of Telep the Diamond by Rich Feitelberg

Read for: RI Author & enjoying the series
Synopsis: "While traveling to Ravenhurst, Sir Ahlan, a Michaeline knight, and his companions encounter a woman, Nancy, beset upon by brigands. Ahlan comes to Nancy’s aid, driving off the thieves, and escorts her to town.

She claims to be a sword master for the Duke of Argentos, who lives in the castle outside of Ravenhurst, but the story Nancy tells of how she got separated from your companions and attacked by bandits raises many questions about the woman. Ultimately, Ahlan suspects her of being a spy and plans to exposed her in open court. But unbeknownst to the knight, their fates are intertwined and she is critical in retrieving the next Aglari."

My Review: I really have been enjoying this fantasy series so far, it has the classic feel of a quest with an eclectic group banding together. This third book in the series continues the quest to find the Aglaril stones. We encounter some new characters who may or may not be as they seem. Rich Feitelberg definitely threw some twists in that I was not expecting, definitely tossing some of my theories for the series out the window. This is a slow moving book as far as development but it allows us to get to know the characters. With that said the plot builds throughout the book adding anticipation. The end of the book while does reach a climax, the tension just builds leaving you ready to read the next book in the series (Calen the Emerald).
My Rating: I have really been enjoying this series and the developments in this book have me re-evaluating some of my own theories of the series (which I love being surprised). This is a book that can be enjoyed by all ages, but it is certainly maturing, there are indications of intimate relations but it is not explicit. I give this book a rating of Four Paws!


  1. I feel like I missed your reviews of the other books in this series. But probably not. It sounds fun. Maybe a bit slow moving though?

    1. It has been some time since I read the previous books, I usually feature them during RI Author month, but you have reminded me to add the links to the previous books (I will edit that now).
