Book Description

This short novel, set after the events of The Book of Deacon, follows the blessed and cursed life of Jade Rinton. Stripped of her family and kept in a tall tower by a fierce dragon due to the scheming of a mysterious stranger, Jade seems to be living in a twisted fairy tale. She soon learns, though, that fate has its own ideas of who should play each part, and that family is where you find it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good character, great story continuation July 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the Deacon trilogy a few months ago. This short book continues the original story line a few generations later. I was expecting another story to be published after the ending of the trilogy but wasn't expecting it to pick up so far ahead in time. I was initially disappointed but immediately got into the characters and story. If you enjoyed the Deacon trilogy you will enjoy this story as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars not disappointed! March 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the Book Of Deacon trilogy, loved it, and when I saw this book, I had to read it. its a later era than the original trilogy, but I enjoyed the rapport between the girl and the dragon. In my head I pictured Sean Connery's voice as the voice of the dragon.. I felt it repeated a little of Myrandas story by the girl living in the wizards tower, but I still devoured this book. The identiy of the "elf" did surprise me, and leaves me wanting to read more about what happened with The Chosen's lives after the wars during the trilogy's time period. Keep it coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars Smiling! February 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A playful, warm-hearted book. A pure delight to read (I think I smiled 99.9% of the way through it) had me laughing out loud, and was upbeat and fun to read. If you've read The Book of Deacon trilogy, you'll want to read this one for sure. Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Waste December 11, 2011
By Bryce
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the original series to be pretty good, not great but good. So when i found another book in the same world i was curious. This book could by and large be on its own with only a few tweaks. The world as you know it is gone. Several hundred years have passed since the last book and the story of the chosen is now distorted legend. Somehow it seems as though the north has again split into three kingdoms and that the world has gone stupid.

Something apparently happened to make not only the split occur, but to have all people fear knowledge. Books, those to write or read them are outcasts from society. Sometimes even being killed. The problem is we are not told why that is. You would think that such a huge change would require an explanation, but the author saw differently apparently. As someone who read the first three books i found this a huge disappointment. Only one character makes an appearance and we are not told WHY they are doing what they are doing(the why they are doing it the WAY they are is easy though). They are seen only on occasion and are only used as a plot device to puch the story along.

On its own it is an okay but short book, but when you have read the original series it comes off as a waste of time, an attaemt for quick cash, and a blot on the authors otherwise good series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant but more tame than expected July 20, 2012
By Erin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a short and sweet little story set in the world of The Book of Deacon trilogy. I'm torn about how to review it because there was nothing wrong with it, but it did feel like it was missing something. I think after reading Lallo's other work I was expecting this book to have more action. In terms of the structure of the plot I was expecting the plot to have a rising action, a climax, and a falling action, but those things didn't really happen.

In my head I'm comparing this book to chocolate pudding. It's pleasant, smooth and easy to take in, and it doesn't take long to finish. Sometimes it's exactly what you want, but if you were looking for something with depth and dimension it's probably not exactly going to hit the spot.

5.0 out of 5 stars too short! August 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I eagerly await more stories from this area since reading the Book of deacon. I was a little disappointed in the ending for Jade though because it seemed "too easy". Like the ideas ran out so things were fast forwarded 10 years. I do like the hint of more to come and hope its another epic hero story like the Deacon trilogy. This wasn't really a hero story but more of a coming of age and glimpse of the future generations story.

2.0 out of 5 stars maybe someday October 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My first Lallo book was Rise of the Red Shadow. I enjoyed it enough to impulse buy the rest in the series. I regret that. Truly. I'm not going to expand on the specifics because I am not a critic and don't enjoy nit picking people.

I feel the author has potential but I would wait for something more substantive before paying for another of his books.

If you haven't read Red Shadow, I would recommend that one

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a good top off to the series July 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good top off to the series, some several hundred years in the future. Much lighter than the other novels. The villain kind of caves at the end, but for this villain, ends are not the same as for others.

No further mention was ever made of the isolated community of spiritual adepts that was in the first novel. I would be willing to read more of this series, especially lighter fare like this one.

Written on a youth level. Excellent side story to the series. Not technical. Not profound. But fun. I read this after the first two books. It fit in nicely.

More About the Author

A native of Bayonne, NJ - the fabled birthplace of George R. R. Martin - Joseph Lallo is an unlikely entry into the world of literature. After a childhood spent daydreaming and reading, he fully intended to pursue a career in the tech sector. He received a Master's Degree in Computer Engineering from NJIT, and subsequently got a job working IT for a large healthcare corporation. Things changed when, in January 2010, his friends finally convinced him to publish the story that had accumulated over the course of a decade of spare time. That story, now known as the Book of Deacon Trilogy, was a surprise hit, and once he got a taste of the world of indie writing, he was hooked. Now he splits his time between crunching numbers at his day job, writing novels at night, and writing articles and reviews for, a group blog he helps run. His latest novels are Bypass Gemini and Unstable Prototypes, the first two books of a science fiction series.
