Allon by Shawn Lamb

Format: Paperback

Number of Pages: 288

Vendor: Creation House
Located in: Antioch, TN

  Allon is an exciting new adventure series by Shawn Lamb.  This book combines fantasy, Knights, Princes and evil vs good.

This book reminds be of alot of different books having elements of them all, Lord of the Rings, Eragon, King Aurthur.

I will admit that I was a bit lost at the beginning as the characters were introduced as there are alot of characters and at times I found it hard to keep them straight.  This is probably why Fantasy adventure is not usually my cup of tea.  But I found that after a bit the story sucked me in and I got the characters sorted out.

Prince Ellis is the true ruler of Allon appointed by Jo'rel.  Shannen is the Daughter of Allon his soul mate.  He must prove himself worthy and that he is the true ruler and in the process gather his council together.  He is helped out by Guardians supernatural beings that work for Jo'rel.

King Marcellus is the current king who is influenced by Latham  (who is the servant of the supernatural being Dagar).   They are helped out by Shadow Warriors (Guardians who have been reconditioned).

I am looking forward to the next book to find out how this struggle turns out.  My daughter loves these types of book so I will be turning this over to her to read.

You can check out more about Allon at the interactive site  There you can see a trailer for the next exciting book and read an excerpt of Allon.

I wish to thank Shawn Lamb and Rebeca at Glass Road PR for a copy of the book. I was not required to write a favorable review.

  1. Thanks for participating in the blog tour and for your honest review. Confusion at the beginning is a comment I've heard frequently. I tried to minimize that by giving my publisher a list of characters (mortal & immortals) for the reader to refer to. Unfortunately, due to page constraints, I had a choice, the map or list. I chose the map. That's why I put the list on the website. Although, I will insist on the list for any subsequent books.
    Again, thank you.

    P.S. I put your link on my blog. :)
