Allon by Shawn Lamb

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.

Shawn Lamb has created a wonderful fantasy story with her book Allon. This is a good verses evil fantasy story where ultimately good triumphs. It’s a enjoyable read I would recommend. Allon would receive a higher rating but the story got bogged down due to too many characters. I had a really hard time keeping everyone straight and it detracted from the overall story. There is a second book titled Insurrection that will be released this fall that I will read.
