Book Description

"This journey you have chosen. I cannot make it for you." Adramina's voice softened. "But do not judge suffering so harshly, Iliff. For indeed, it has proven a faithful guide. Think of all the times it has led to your release."

A hero's journey and poignant allegory, The Prisoner and the Sun chronicles Iliff's struggle for freedom. Stone walls, lies, dreadful creatures, and Death itself beset his path. And then there are Iliff's own convictions about the unseen Sun and how one beholds it. Convictions that present perhaps the most daunting barriers to his quest's fulfillment.

Now, all three books in one epic edition:

* * *

BOOK 1: ESCAPE - Young Iliff believes his prison world to be all there is. But when a stranger tells him the story of a long-ago escapee, Iliff resolves to learn the truth. Thus begins his journey to find the Sun, a magnificent power from which all things are said to originate -- including him. But first he must venture beyond the very walls he is charged with upholding and into realms deep and dark, where fearsome creatures lurk.

BOOK 2: LIGHTS & SHADOWS - The journey is over. The quest for the Sun fallen to ruin. From the depths of a hopeless swamp, Iliff condemns himself. But when he encounters a dethroned king and his war-torn subjects, he stirs to new purpose: to protect these good people from the darkness of the world. It will be his redemption. Or will it? For the more fiercely Iliff struggles to fortify their light, the greater looms the enemy's shadow -- and his own.

BOOK 3: FINAL PASSAGE - The Sun remains elusive, and Skye is fading. Now the challenge before Iliff is clear: complete his quest or lose Skye forever. With time short and hope waning, he knows his looming journey will demand everything of him. But clues are few and cryptic and all seem to point toward the last place he ever expected, or wanted, to venture.

* * *

A fantasy-based search for one's true self, The Prisoner and the Sun Trilogy will be enjoyed by fans of The Alchemist and Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

Appropriate for ages 10 and older

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 long novellas combined to a great book February 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Three of the author's books combined to be a really decent length book. As something of a spiritual awakening for the main character, I began to see the circular story toward the end of the second portion. The travel of the main character toward a mythical "Sun" is a journey of the spirit also. Over the length of the story, you will begin to see yourself in the book. Struggling forward through life, all of wonder why things happen. We get sidetracked, find our way again, stop to rest. It is the same for Iliff his journey will enthrall most readers. Give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars well written a bit of sci-fi young adult April 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This story was well written and takes the reader on a journey not only in the characters world but also his morals, his spirituality and so many other ways its amazing that one person can write one story based on so many things. This is a long read but well worth it. It will take you through struggles you have never imagined and accomplishments you only dreamed were possible. won this on library thing . com

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull reading April 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Started out slow and tedious and only got slower. Main character was dull and lacked depth. Hated the overly religious theme of seeking the sun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book of the year February 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
An epic journey with all the sense of wonder that the greats have but done in a way that hasn't been done before. Once you start reading you won't be able to stop. The ending doesn't disappoint.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea February 16, 2013
By Britt
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I read, especially fantasy, I don't want my consciousness raised. I don't want to feel better about myself when I finish. I don't want contemporary social ills solved in allegory. I want to be entertained. While these are well written, I never was able to settle in and just enjoy the story. I'm not flaming the author or the books, they're just not for me.

More About the Author

Brad Magnarella grew up in north central Florida. As a boy he discovered the worlds of Marvel Comics, text-based gaming, The Boss, and Stephen King, roughly in that order. The prize, however, was a creek that wound past his suburban neighborhood, providing him and his friends a wooded sanctuary in which to lose themselves while discovering natural Florida.

A graduate of the University of Florida and American University, Brad has long aspired to write fiction from the places that colored his childhood. His books include the XGeneration series and the metaphysical trilogy, The Prisoner and the Sun.

Brad currently lives and writes in Washington, D.C.
