Book 3 of Adventures of Jecosan Tarres: The Battle finishes Jeco Tarres' adventure.

I enjoyed reading this trilogy. It had everything you want in a series: great characters, rich setting, and easy to read. I hope this series gets more recognition and gain a wider readership.

Well, Jeco and Lord Farizel were accused of treason by King Alvard of Meoria and they had to flee the kingdom. It looks like the kingdoms of Meoria and Tigran are heading to war because the Meorian king wants to destroy the Book of Light (the author's version of the Bible).

However, they are some interesting twists and sub-plots that are trying to keep the two kingdoms from going to war. Moreover, there is redemption and humility that comes from an unlikely source.

And Jeco's (whom I think is like Joseph from the Book of Genesis)role changes as well from Book 1 as he grows and matures.

I give this book and the series a solid recommendation to be read and re-read.

In my opinion of the 25 or so Christian Fantasy novels I have read, this series would be ranked #1 or #2 right up there with the Raiders from the Sea Series, by Lois W. Johnson and Jill Williamson's Blood of Kings series. I would encourage the author to concentrate on writing novels since she does such a good job at it.

Jeco has come a long way from being an orphan apprentice to his friend a blacksmith as he is now a scribe in the palace of King Alvard III, but remains ready to complete his quest to prevent a war. However, Baron Kagarlak persuades the monarch that Jeco plans seditious acts against the Kingdom of Kanavar so the youngster is imprisoned.

However, Telm, the Elgur messenger of the heavens who assigned Jeco his quest, helps him escape the incarceration and the capital of Meoria. Joining him in flight is his friend Dalian the blacksmith and his teacher-friend Lord Farizel as they think King Alvard III wants them dead out of a false belief orchestrated by the evil Baron that they betrayed him. Meanwhile Baron Kagarlak persuades General Traun that Alvard is dangerous for their country and with a bit of blackmail convinces the military officer that a coup is needed. Unable to kill his Highness, General Traun exiles the disposed Alvard in woods where the former monarch is certain to die as he incapable of any survival skills. To save the King's life, Jeco, Lord Farizel, and Dalian must give up Telm's protection though that would place them in extreme peril from Alvard who may live still want them dead as well as from the Traitorous duo of the general and Baron.

The final The Adventures of Jecosan Tarres is a terrific ending to a wonderful coming of age fantasy trilogy. The key cast members (the good, the bad, and the ugly) make for an exciting story line as decisions made by these people hurt others. Readers will root for Jeco, a young hero wise beyond in his years, as he tries to fulfill his mission to prevent a war between his country and the neighboring nation knowing his side is pushing the hostilities. Laura Lond provides a wonderful trilogy worth reading.

This book is the final book in a trilogy. I've not read the other two books, but the plot was easy enough to jump into. At some point I would like to find the other two books and read them. The story follows Jeco as his adventure comes to a close. A king is deposed and runs for his life, Jeco and his friends are declared outlaws, a war is begun by the illegitimate regent, and both good and bad supernatural forces are involved. I enjoyed the book, and it was a pretty quick read. The characters were enjoyable, the religious aspects understandable and not too heavy, and some characters find redemption and re-acceptance in the end.

I liked the 3rd book in this series. Basically, the entire story wrapped up the series in a dramatic ending. I especially liked the plot of transformation of characters. There was a conclusion for ALL characters, so you knew the ending/beginning. I like it when a book covers all the characters and gives finality.

Reviewed by Leslie Granier for Reader Views (2/07)

"The Adventures of Jecosan Tarres, Book 3: The Battle" will appeal to fantasy and adventure lovers - both young and old. This book contains conspiracy, mystery, intrigue and humor, all of the elements that make for a good read. Even though I have not yet read the first two books of this trilogy, I had no difficulty understanding and following the plot.

This book focuses on the battle between the forces of good and evil as an imminent war between the neighboring countries of Meoria and Tirgan approaches. A young boy named Jecosan must summon his courage and inner strength as he travels with three unlikely companions in an attempt to thwart this war. In the meantime, there is much activity going on in both palaces. In one, the king has been stripped of his power and left to die. The mutineers have done this to gain power for themselves since his replacement is his nine year old sister who is unable to fully rule because of her age. However, they could never have imagined the intelligence and craftiness this young heiress possesses. It is she who ultimately turns the tide and exposes the conspiracy. In the other kingdom, another internal battle is present. The two princes are very different when it comes to their approach to war. One is battle hungry and one would rather try the diplomatic approach. The oldest wants to prove his idea is better so he deceives his father (the king) and heads off to do what he wants. This sets off a chain reaction that could lead to catastrophic events.

By creating well-developed and likable characters, author Laura Lond made me instantly want to root for the protagonists. As I read, I really felt the love and pain of the characters. I especially liked the character of Princess Arvelina.
