"The Light of Eidon" by Karen Hancock (2003) - REVIEW

Goodday and welcome to
"The B.B. Weekly Review"
The next few weeks will feature one of my (and my Husband's) favourite series of novels called "Legends of the Guardian King" by Karen Hancock. The first book in the series is "The Light of Eidon".

Back Cover Blurb:
Abramm Kalladorne has dedicated the last eight years of his life to becoming worthy to touch and tend the Sacred Flames of Eidon, and he expects to be blessed for his devotion and sacrifice. But on the eve of taking the vows that will irrevocably
separate him from the life he was born to—as fifth son of the king of Kiriath—he is betrayed by his spiritual mentor and sold into slavery by his brothers Swept along by the winds of a new destiny, Abramm is forced to compete in the gladiatorial games of his new masters. When the oppressed masses rally around his successes, he discovers his suffering has molded him into something greater than he ever thought possible—to serve a purpose he never imagined.
Set in a world of swords and cloaks, of glittering palaces and mystical temples, of galley ships and ancient mist-bound cities, The Light of Eidon is the first volume of the new epic series, LEGENDS OF THE GUARDIAN-KING.
Review: My husband and I read the other three books in this sreries before we found the first book. After several months and having to special order it in, we finally had book number one! We were not dissapointed.The first book in the "Legends of the Guardian King" series by Karen Hancock was well worth the effort and of course it was good to finally understand all of the 'past' mentioned in the other three novels. Though less engaging than the other three novels, we thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it outloud together while driving. I would reccomend the entire series to anyone who likes to read history, fantasy, and a little bit of romance.

My Rating: 5/5
