Glass Road PR Book Tour & Review of Allon by Shawn Lamb

4/30/10
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from Glass Road Public Relations for the purpose of review. 

Summary from Amazon:

The land of Allon was a paradise until the fall of the Guardians paved the way for the rise of the Dark Way. Evil King Marcellus now controls the land as his forefathers did, with an iron fist and the help of the evil spirit, Dagar. But an ancient prophecy speaks of a time to come when the Guardians will return and Allon will be restored--lead by its rightful heir. All the while, the exiled teenage Promised Prince, Ellis, must prove himself worthy to be king through a series of supernatural trials that test his character, wisdom, courage, and his heart.
The first in the Allon series, this magical tale of adventure, destiny, and faith will test your strength and awaken your spirit of adventure.

Review/My Thoughts:

This is a wonderful fantasy adventure that reminded me of Eragon by Christopher Paolini.  Shawn Lamb has created an exciting and magical world that has a wonderful message woven throughout.  There is plenty of action and adventure for any fantasy fiction fan.  Your preteen and/or teen will love the first book in the series!
