The Light of Eidon

The Light of Eidon (Legends of the Guardian-King, #1)The Light of Eidon by Karen Hancock
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Abramm Kalladorne wanted to know Eidon. He’d devoted his life to the priesthood. But before he could complete his training, his world came crumbling down. Stripped of his royal title, his identity in the priesthood, feeling spurned by the God he loved, he was shipped off to a life he could never have imagined. Caught between the warring powers of foreign lords, Abramm must come to terms with the truth of his life, understand who Eidon really is, and learn to trust again.

I enjoy a good fantasy novel and The Light of Eidon has a lot going for it. It’s the first in a series and I haven’t read the rest of them, but it certainly set up well for book 2, while having a clear and meaningful ending to book 1. It was, overall, a bit on the dark side. While there is the classic good verses evil struggle, the good is often hard to find and it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Anyone who enjoys a darker, grittier type of story would enjoy this. I would not recommend it for younger teens, however.
