TheValley of Decision transportsits readers into a fantasy world as rich and authentic as Tolkien'sThe Lord of the Rings. The novel is high fantasy with a neo-medievalsetting. McDermott's characters and storytelling are not onlycredible, they are totally enthralling, imaginative, and original.She has created a trio of men--Keiran, Caél, and Jarmith--whocannot possibly be any more different from the other, but they forgean alliance of friendship and championship that is then capable ofdelivering a host of people and other creatures from the oppressivegrip of the evil Belenus. Through their struggle and battle forliberty comes the revelation that we all have to choose which masterto serve. It will either be the one that steals, kills, and destroys;or else the Eternal One, who is good, restores, and can set us free.-Dr.Brenda Ayres, Director of Undergraduate Research and CreativeWriting, Liberty University.
