Title: The Four: Destruction of Honor
Author: Zola Blue
Genre: YA Fantasy, YA Natural World Fiction
The Ercutians, an ancient race of spell casters that abandoned Earth long ago, have abandoned the ways of their elders. Their powerful magic they once used for good has been replaced with destructive spells and incantations, and their once thriving, wonderous lands have turned against them. The destruction of the Ercutian race is imminent.
To heal their lands, and prolong their heritage, a sorcerer, sorceress, wizard, and wizardess combine their mystical powers to become the Great One, known to all as Thire-los. But not all is well within the Great One, for conflicting personalities brood within the single entity, and what was once Great threatens to become tainted, throwing all of Ercutia back into chaos once again.
The Ercutians were once praised for their good magic spells that have depleted their world's mystical resources for dark spells and revengeful incantations. Extinction is imminent so four magical beings combine to create The Great One. It is their mission to save the Ercutians before it's too late. But bickering and thirst for power threaten the delicate balance The Great One has created. Can they put aside their pettiness in order to save the world or is their extinction inevitable?
The Four: Destruction of Honor is a feast for the fantasy reader. Zola Blue takes an intriguing premise and runs with it. The world-building is not only believable but easy for the reader to dive into. The characters are well-defined and each with their own voice. The lessons are clear with a strong environmental theme which I enjoyed immensely. The ending, while satisfactory, left me wanting more. Overall, a wonderful fantasy adventure and one I recommend.

Born in Florida, I am a resident of the US, but now I reside on a lovely island in British Columbia Canada. During the early years of my life, I worked in the business industry, thus reaching my goal of obtaining my degree in Business Management. I love to read, and over my lifetime, I have probably read hundreds of books. Now that life has given a bit more time to concentrate on my personal life, I am following God and writing fun, fanciful fiction stories, which blend over into the fantasy realm. My first amazing middle-grade fantasy series is now out, "The Four." There are very little violence and no wars. This is my attempt to provide lovely fanciful readings to the young to stimulate their imaginations. God is the mentor of my life, and to Him, I give thanks for all things.
