‘The Ale Boy’s Feast’ by Jeffrey Overstreet is a fantasy book from the and is the fourth book in the Auralia series.
The book is right my alley genre-wise but I think I was handicapped by the fact that I hadn’t read the first three. I had a lot of trouble getting through this book. I read and read and just could not follow the story at all.
I pushed on thinking maybe I just needed to get more familiar with the author’s very descriptive way of writing, but I still could not make sense of it all.

ABOUT THE BOOK
The king is missing.
His promises lie in ruins.
His people are trapped as the woods turn deadly.
Underground, the boy called Rescue has found an escape.
The world has been poisoned. The forests, once beautiful, are now bloodthirsty.
But the people of House Abascar will risk their lives on a journey through those predatory trees. Inspired by Auralia’s colors, they’re searching for Inius Throan — a legendary city where they can start over again.
But they journey without a king. Cal-raven has lost his faith in himself and in that mysterious creature — the Keeper who inspired him to lead. His broken heart needs a miracle.
What of those Abascar survivors still enslaved to the beastmen? As the ale boy leads them upstream on an underground river, their deliverance depends on a miracle.
And where is the wandering mage, Scharr ben Fray? He’s discovered that the world’s history is a lie, one only a miracle can repair.
Time is running out for all of those whose stories are tangled in The Auralia Thread. But miracles happen wherever Auralia’s colors are found.
