Midrak Earthshaker

Hidden in the centre of the Earth stands the Tree of Life, each fruit of which holds the life of something in the universe. But a deadly enemy is digging its way towards the Tree and the only people who know and can stop him are a trainee magician and his invisible teacher,  three elves, two children, a Ruzniel, the rock people and the surviving guardian of the Tree. But they will not be enough to defeat this enemy. They will need more than magic. They will need determination, fearlessness and a lot of luck.

Amazon review
First, my middle school granddaughter saw "Midrak Earthshaker" on my desk and has clamored for it ever since. A very good sign. Next, we got sick, my neighbor grandchildren and me. I live right next door so this happens fairly often. And everyone works so it falls to me to watch over them. Cable TV was taken out a while ago and that proved to be an excellent choice. But when they get sick, someone needs to entertain. So amid rumpled flannel sheets spread on a lumpy couch and with the soft slant of an afternoon light, I read "Midrak Earthshaker" aloud to my grandchildren. As much as I could fit in before they finally fell asleep. They gave a good fight and they got an introduction to another world. And, just like that, we added the story to be a part of our family literature. I found this story to be a refreshment on a book-weary palate. It lends itself to being read again and again as all good literature should. A mix of magic, elves, humans,rock people, and evil monsters do battle under the earth to get to the valiantly guarded Tree-of-Life and the power to rule or protect worlds. Yet still a small enough cast to get to know personalities. With art in the margins! I loved it, absolutely! We had a family tragedy not long ago and within this year. I found this: "You know more about magic than I but I would say as long as you remember someone they live. The worse death of all is to die in another's memory." So we are okay; we won't leave anybody behind.
