Quest of the Dream Warrior

Quest of the Dream Warrior

by David Arkenstone



A concept album with a story written in tandem with fantasy writer Mercedes Lackey, Quest of the Dream Warrior tells the tale of Kyla, a brave maiden who follows her dream quest through a magical world to find her father. A captivating story from Arkenstone and Lackey and excellent music from Arkenstone makes this disc well worth a listen. Arkenstone's compositions are as superior as ever, with powerfully moving arrangements and dramatic song structures. Keyboards, guitars, percussion and orchestral arrangements blend to paint a pure sonic landscape, a fine background for the engaging storyline. Arkenstone's choral vocals help add to the sense of mystery and wonder, as does the beautiful illustrated map that details Kyla's journey through the Land. Standouts include "Prelude: Tallis the Messenger," "The Journey Begins: Kyla's Ride," "Dance of the Maidens" and "The Magic Forest." This is a very good disc.
