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.
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.

The Palace needs major proofreading. The story was OK, but it read like the author didn't make it beyond fifth grade.Published on December 5, 2012 by elder allen
