      I was completely blown away by this first installment of the Legends of the Guardian-King series. Fantasy as a genre, and especially Christian fantasy, is often considered to be children’s books, some sort of fairy tales that serious-minded adults don’t

      need to bother with.

      The Light of Eidon by Karen Hancock proves that it is not so.

      This is definitely not a kiddie book.

      It reads like a good historical novel - well-researched settings, cultures, and customs, tight plot, polished writing, multi-dimensional characters, excellent dialogue.

      The fantasy element - supernatural creatures - fits right in and has a clear spiritual basis.

      to a monastery-like community.

      He wants to serve God, known as Eidon in the realm, and he believes that joining the religious order of Mataio that guards the holy flames of Eidon is his destiny.

      Having spent eight years in

      training, Abramm is ready to officially take his vows.

      Suddenly, his whole life changes; he loses everything, including his faith.

      People he trusted seem to have had plans of their own, and what Abramm believed to be the truth no longer appears so.
