About the Book
Death. Deception. Redemption.
In the days of King Tsedecc, the seventh generation after Qccesed the Great, a kidnapping shatters young Prince Korbin's idyllic world. In short order, everything he knows is called into question as he hears horrifying things about the world around him.
In the deadly aftermath, nothing can ever be the same.
A twisting tapestry of virtue and intrigue, The Legend of the Dagger Prince is much more than a coming-of-age tale or an adventure story, although it could aptly be described as both. This carefully-woven medievalesque fantasy is a rich journey toward redemption, exploring hard lessons regarding the cost of loyalty and honor-and the price of deceit.
Eminently quotable and flavored with a subtle Old World literary feel, The Legend of the Dagger Princeis the opening salvo in T. A. Gallant's exciting new series, The Annals of Adamah.
About the Author
T. A. Gallant learned to read at age four, and was an early fan of the great literature of Dick and Jane and The Bobbsey Twins. It was somewhat later that he came to appreciate other giants: Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, C. S. Lewis, Jane Austen, Eco, Potok, Graham Greene, Anthony Trollope, and of course, Bill Watterson.
T. A. tried his hand at fiction as a kid, but delayed becoming a novelist until middle age. He still loves the giants, but writes nothing like them. His fantasy style borrows vaguely but quite unmistakably from unlikely sources, such as the King James Bible and old newspapers. The occasional lyrical quality of his prose springs from many years of songwriting.
Since transplanting from the Great White North, Gallant lives in a hobbit-hole near Nashville, Tennessee with his wife Kristi and a herd of children.
T.A. Gallant has written an action-packed suspense novel that teens are not going to want to miss. The exciting story is filled with plenty of intense and thrilling moments that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. There is some violence, but nothing graphic. The gripping story will keep readers wondering what will happen next. Fun characters and a enticing storyline, including deceit, treachery, and murder plots, also enhance the plotline and keeps readers hooked. I would recommend this novel to readers that are ready for a fun new suspense filled adventure.
