Description

The Book of Deacon is the first book of The Book of Deacon series by Joseph R. Lallo.

Myranda Celeste’s world has been built on a legacy of bloodshed. For more than a century, her homeland the Northern Alliance has fought the Kingdom of Tressor in what has come to be known as the Perpetual War. While her people look upon the conflict with reverence, Myranda’s hate for the war has made her an outcast.

When she finds a precious sword among the equipment of a fallen warrior, she believes her luck may have changed. Little does she imagine that the treasure will draw her into an adventure of wizards and warriors, soldiers and rebels, and beasts both noble and monstrous. The journey will teach her much about her potential, about the origins of the war, and about the threat her world truly faces.

Will Myranda unlock the secret of bringing peace once and for all, or will the world be lost to the Perpetual War?

    I found myself compelled to finish this first story. I felt an urgency to follow and see where the tale went in it's journey. Great characters, from irascible and somewhat immoral wizards to very tainted soldiers and politicians. I did find Myranda a little tedious at times. Even while I could agree with her anti war, anti killing attitude, she did become a little holier than thou at times. Overall I found it to be an interesting and good story.

    I thought this book was beautifully written. Yes there may have been some things that weren’t perfect but what I really care for is the story line. A few grammatical errors and spelling mistakes aren’t a big deal. It was a wonderful story with creative characters and I cannot wait to continue it!

    But not great. If it’s just a prequel to try and get you to by the rest of the trilogy ( which I guess now includes a fourth un-finished book) couldn’t it have been a lot shorter and left out all the tedious predictable stuff? And maybe the main characters shouldn’t do so much dumb irrational stuff and make bad decisions. And maybe fewer miracles to save the hero’s or maybe fewer miraculous unbelievabe performances by the heroes to save the day, but then turn right around and do something dumb to get themselves in trouble again? It’s an interesting premise for a story, but I probably won’t read anymore of the books, certainly not if I have to pay for them, from the library maybe?

    I couldn't put this book down! It was an amazing world with such great storytelling skill! The author displays his own craft of words in this book to carry the reader through an adventure to remember. The magic in this book is wonderful and I would definitely recommend it to others!

    What an exciting read! It is captivating and makes you want to keep on reading to keep up with the events as they unfold. The sentence structure is unique and refreshing. You are not burdened with long overbearing principles presented in a convoluted fashion. Rather, you read the sentiments and feeling in simple terms, making fiction/fantasy seem real! A must read for any Tolkien or terry brooks reader!
  • Resounding yes!

  • Odd pacing and writing

    I like the story in general, but it is a strange book. Editing, pacing, even dialogue are odd. Almost as if the author is talented but young. Dialogue reminds me of a dubbed French anime. Girl wizard protagonist + pet dragon + kind man/fox companion screams anime fantasy hybrid written for teenage girls.
