SUMMARY (from Goodreads)
Auron Fox is the leader of the band of the fox. For so many years he has been living in a hidden village on the outskirts of his country. When his old friends frame him, the king of Burnahdujf invades Auron's village for murdering the prince. Instead of killing Auron, the king decides to punish him by sending him on an unpleasant journey to find a jewel that could bring chaos.
Auron desperately hopes to return alive as he fights dangerous foes with his elemental magic and summoning spirits. The king threatens to destroy Auron's village and his people if he fails to bring the magic jewel. However, will the king keep his oath? As hope fades, Auron races to save the people he loves and get his revenge.

I don't normally read a lot of fantasy novels but I was asked to read and review this one, so I went ahead. I had a problem with the book since it was the typical fantasy novel. I as the reader pretty much had it figured out before I finished the book. We have a girl, strong and she meets up with a boy. Then the ones who think they're bad enter. Things become confused and it takes the boy and girl to try to straighten it out. I do like the fact that the author made the girl a strong character. That helps set the young reader's mind that women can be and are strong. They're not the hide behind the man type.
The main character of the story is Auron Fox. The author described him as creepy scary, something just wasn't right about him. During the quest, they searched for a jewel that was magical. The jewel holds a key to the future. Something the mind has yet to encounter. The author's characters seemed to fit the story well. He left the reader with an ending that awed the reader. The book was fairly well written, there were some tense changes here and there, although that didn't hurt the story any. I do believe it needs some editing. I got the vague idea that the jewel was scarlet in color. Without giving away anything, I'd suggest you pick up a copy and read. Draw your own opinion and see if you can find out where the jewel is and can it be retrieved?
I was given a complimentary copy of SCARLET QUEST from the author, A.J. Martinez for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 3 CROWNS.
