About The Tree - Zephyrus

The magnificent tree in my story is fashioned after the famous oak tree called the Queen in the New Forest (renamed the West Forest in my story), in Southern England. Her limbs reach up as if to touch the sky, her branches thick with leaves, the tree was magic to me. I picked up an acorn and rolled it between my fingers thinking I’d take it home with me and grow my own Young Queen, but the acorn was already infested with bugs. Yuk! I don’t think it was a good idea, anyway

Reviewed in the United States on May 26, 2022


Incredible story rich with magical characters and setting so well written that the reader is drawn into the mystical forest right along with young Ivan Kimble. If you enjoyed the Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings series' this is a must read for you. Bravo, Vicki Thomas!

For The Golden Lantern

“I was so impressed with this author in book one, The Long Dark Cloak, that I am excited to see a sequel. Not only has Ms. Thomas shown the ability to develop unique characters, she draws stimulating plots and uncommon settings that feel fresh and exciting in a young adult fantasy novel.”

Cindy Davis,  Author of mysteries and metaphysical

For The Golden Lantern

“I was on the edge of my seat as I read Book Two in the Relics Adventures series. In this story, fifteen-year-old Ivan Kimble again ventures into the West Forest searching for his older brother, who failed to return to their farm as promised. Author Vicki D. Thomas did not disappoint in The Golden Lantern.”

Praise & Reviews

For The Long, Dark Cloak

Just when you think you’ve read every plot line, there comes another, one that’s so distinctive it makes you hope it will become a series. The Long Dark Cloak contains a plethora of vibrant, unique characters that remain true to their personalities throughout the book. At first Ivan appears to be a normal fifteen-year-old farm boy, and then he’s thrown into life situations that would test even the strongest adult. This book is wonderful for anyone who loves action, adventure, and true emotion. What a delight it was to learn this would become a series!

For The King's Scepter

The King’s Scepter, Book Three in the Relics Adventures Series, is an edge-of-your-seat read. So much action—from the very beginning! The story starts with the trial of Merridyn, the witch, who is accused of poisoning her husband and child. Ivan overcomes his self-doubt and steps up to question her accusers using the Truth Chair and brings to light what indeed occurred. Ivan battles the flesh-eating ghouls in the Mountain of Smoke and Fire while searching for and saving Peter, his older brother. The book ends with Ivan rescuing Peter, nearly losing his life to free him. Can things ever be right again between the two brothers?

Another exciting and adventure-filled novel by Vicki D. Thomas!

For the King's Scepter

I just love this series! From the beginning, the characters grow and develop along with each obstacle or situation they face. To me this is awesome, because it takes a special kind of sensitivity and imagination to create the believable characters throughout the novel. That’s only one thing I love about Vicki Thomas’ writing. She also has amazingly thought-out plots that keep the characters in some sort of turmoil from start to finish. Even if you’re not a YA reader, you will find something to love.

For the King's Scepter

Vicki Thomas, Author and talented artist, who writes Young Adult Fantasies, doesn't disappoint in her latest novel, THE KING'S SCEPTER.

Twists and turns kept me wanting to read page after exciting pages.  And just when you think the plot is apparent, she delivers the surprise key ending.
