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.

A.J. MartinezHello there my name is A.J. Martinez and I am a fantasy author living in the state of Connecticut USA. I spend my days writing thinking of ideas. World building and doing character designs.

My desire is to write fantasy stories that will make one soar with the wings of Icarus. To write heart pounding stories to make one wish that the pages will never end. To write stories in a world beyond Hogwarts and Middle Earth and on to the world of Odealeous. To write stories that make one think of the stars of the night during daylight. Stories that make one see rare colors and hear sweet songs only the sirens sing by a glowing river. To tell stories where the arts of the mystic and dragons seem as though they had gone extinct. I write what I dream about and dream so that I can write.

I am quite a geek and I am a big time Anime fan. I enjoy going to conventions with my friends and rave parties.

My favorite movie is "the matrix" I never get tire of watching it. I am also a big fan of European and Asian culture.

That is a short summary of me. Sorry, I am better at describing my stories and characters than myself. Any questions don't hesitate to contact me.


 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.
