"If you can imagine a cross between Braveheart and the Chronicles of Narnia you may be on the right track, just don't expect any talking beavers." -- David J. West, author of "Heroes of the Fallen"
"I finished . . . with tears in my eyes. It was late evening. I looked out the window at the darkening sky and wished I could sit once more under the stars and share this book with my father. That, my friends, is the highest praise I've ever given a novel." - Kerry Blair, author of the "Nightshade Mystery Series"

I must admit, I was a little confused at the beginning of this book about the religion. But as I got more into the book, I understood what Daron was doing.
The story takes place on a planet called Gan where three tribes were warring against the other, each wanting to rule, and many believe owning The Thorn is the key. But not everyone wants bloodshed.The Thorn is symbolic.
Daron mixes conflict, romance and religion in a clear way. I clearly "saw" Gan thanks to Daron's descriptions. The mountains, towns, forests and even tents were clearly defined.
Each character had their own voice and personality. I really wanted Daron's main characters to succeed at the same time wanting the bad guys to lose and lose big.
Good, clean, uplifting book.
I'll be waiting for the second book, Daron!
Author Daron D. Fraley has done an exquisite job in bringing us an adventure of the supernatural sort with a twist of fantasy-fiction.
The characters are depthy and endearing, as is the marvelous world he places them on.
Mr. Fraley is adept at blending fact and fiction to weave an extraordinary tale, and his work is suitable for both adults and young readers.
