New from Shawn Lamb, author of the award-winning Allon series, comes another Christian fantasy – Son of Eldar.
When trying to survive persecution, sometimes winning means you must be willing to lose.
“The weakness of men resides in hasty words. Faithlessness results in actions that cannot save.”
So says the prophecy about the oath King Oleg made two hundred years earlier in an effort to save his kingdom. Sadly, the coup divided Eldar into Six Territories ruled by an Elector rather than a king. Now, Elector Javan wants the title KING FOREVER. With help from First Minister Dolus, they hunt down followers loyal to the Faith of the True King—be it man or beast.
For Nollen, the owner of a remote trading post, the struggle is personal. Family and friends depend upon him for survival. So too, does a stranger, who arrives at Far Point knowing more about Nollen than just his occupation.
The stranger’s arrival propels Nollen to undertake his most perilous covert mission – discover the Six Treasures of Oleg for the True King. The mission brings more deadly consequences than he can comprehend.
As Nollen stared at the shattered pieces of a treasure, words echoed in his mind. “Guard it with your life. There will only be one chance to use it.” Fear gripped his heart. It can’t end like this! Not in failure.
