    One thought on “Calastan”

    1. This was such a cool book with 100% originality. The world and characters and structures of everything were so unique and interesting, I was totally sucked in. It also left a great hook that leaves you wanting to read the next book. Props to the author for her super original concept!

    2. The first thing I noticed about Calastan is that Cheryllynn has an almost poetic style of writing that is very pretty. Jein is a forward thinking girl who also holds on to traditions and I think that came across eloquently through her speech. This reads very much like a diary of Jein’s life. It is told in the first person and we follow her through her hunts, through her daily life, up to a very big change that is going to occur to her. We learn about her family, her friends, we read about trad [...]

    3. How amazing would it be to live in Calastan! People live in perfect peace and harmony with the surrounding landscape. They possess an ancient wisdom, and they respect each other as they respect nature. The author manages to transport the reader into a new dimension, not just a fantasy world, but a more spiritual conception of life. The reader can actually see the stunning colors of the plants and feel the movements of the large variety of animals. Everything is marked by the rhythm given by Godd [...]

    4. Calastan is a fascinating glimpse into another world. The main character, Jein, struggles with who she is versus who she was taught she should be. As I read, I was drawn into Jein’s amazing realm. I felt like I was transported into a world much like the one in movie the Avatar, with its strange and unique animals and plant life, when Jein and her fellow hunters entered Resolution. The whole book has a foreign feel, right down to the way the characters speak and the way things are described. I [...]

    5. Cheryllynn Dyess has undertaken an enormous task in her "Jein's Journey" series; creating an alien world in words. The trick with this sort of thing is to make it exotic enough that readers find it strange and wondrous, but not so weird and invented that the reader can't picture what's going on or what the environment looks like. Fortunately, Ms. Dyess excels at description. She provides detailed images for the reader of the surroundings and characters so that we know Calastan as she sees it. Je [...]

    6. WOW! What a great start to a series :) I love the world Cheryllynn Dyess created. This quick read is very packed full of descriptions and makes you feel like your there. I highly recommend picking up all three just so you can jump into the next one.I love her the lead female character isn't a typical whiney women. That's so refreshing!I'm off to start book two and get sucked back into Jein's Journery :)

    7. The author does an amazing job describing the world she has created. Reading you become invested in the characters and want to see what happens next. I eagerly await the next book in this series!

    8. Target audience: 8-10 years.The story is illogical, the text is unfinished with editorial mistakes, the world-build is extremely unbelievable, and strange descriptions of the environments. The main character is pretentious and unintelligent. For example, the characters find several previously undocumented plants, and they eat them without any concerns of toxicity. I can't find any good things to say of this book.

    9. This is the story of Jein Kyominias who lives on the planet Calastan. At 17, Jein is one of the few female hunters and is not the typical "girl" in their society. She enjoys being on her own and loves the lifestyle that she leads.She and others take a trip out to the Resolution to learn more about the plants and animals for her leaders. Yet when she returns she is faced with a request that she doesn't necessarily believe is in her own best interest.This is the first book in the series and it lea [...]

    10. Calastan by Cheryllynn Dyess is an in depth look into the fantasy world created for this series. It is actually a very detailed description, more like a .5 than a book 1. All of the background information is given, but there is not real character attachments and zero plot. Until the very end. The story actually begins on the last page. (oh, and dropped a star for poor editing. :( )
