Epic fantasy with a lyrical slave king. In general, I find this type of fantasy irritating. I think it’s going to be a fun fantasy, once we get there. It’s quite entertaining. But this is definitely the obscure intro to a triple trilogy. Nine books? That’s epic.
A lyrical slave king
The Legend of the Slave King delivers clean action, adventure, mystery and romance all in one! The series will be a trilogy of trilogies, with a total of nine books in all!
Be prepared for a life-changing experience, for, you are about to enter into the fireside chat of the old king as he begins the to tell the Legend of the Slave King.
Witness as close friends and family gather after sharing a meal and the characters of the story come alive, dancing in the flames of the campfire. Tales of bravery, treachery, good, and evil become emblazoned on the minds and hearts of those who listen.
Learn of Alban, a young prince who was sold into slavery. Without so much as memory of who he is (and because of his memory loss) rumors begin to fly in the camp that he may actually be the Slave King of whom it was foretold generations ago. Alban toys with the idea, but only to figure out whom he may trust. Will he be able to remember or at least
find out who betrayed and sold him? Will he figure out how to escape from the slaver’s caravan? Is he actually the Slave King from the legend?
Begin your adventure now!
The Legend of the Slave King seems like fun
But like many lyrical fantasies, it is more taken up with witty dialogue, cool characters, a labyrinth of hints of a world and a tale than it is in the actual telling of the story. There’s a lot of good stuff here, but this is more like an extended prologue which never arrives at clarity.
Spiritually, it is two-star with promise
The spiritual content is like the story being told: many hints, some hopeful signs, but no clarity. There is not a savior, yet. So, it is not Christian, maybe Mormon. Yet, several of the relationships seem to leading toward true faith—maybe. There’s quite a bit of promise, but no realizations yet.
