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.

It touched the truth enough to make the book inspiring and even edifying. The only sad thing for me was that the strong character of Jeco (an impressive young man) was left unresolved because he was ultimately too young. During the reading of the trilogy, I kept looking for a love interest and a position reflecting his obvious maturity. Neither were offered because of the stipulation that he was barely a teenager which was certainly not part of my involvement with this character. This is a really good story other than that.

I very much enjoyed these three books and would recommend them to just about anyone who enjoys a good read and doesn't mind a little "fantasy" thrown in. I also enjoyed the breadth of the journey - it started in a small town and after several setbacks and interesting happenings the main character ended up in the capital city. The character development and the world Laura Lond has created in this series seems masterfully crafted. It all seems real, and although I can usually figure out plot points before I get to them in most stories, I was unable to do that with these. This three book series is my first taste of Laura Lond's writing and I look forward to reading everything else she has out there.

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.

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.

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.

I just completed the trilogy of jecosan' s adventures. I found the series to be thoroughly entertaining. An epic adventure comparable t o the lord of the rings. A truly thrilling classic battle of good and evil.

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.
