Lallo has done it again, in a fantastic way!

When I first read The Book of Deacon (the first book in this series) I couldn't believe such a talented author, with such an impressive plot and original world building, was actually an independent, or indie, author. It impressed me so much that I quickly bought the second and third books.
Now I am honored to have received the fourth, The D'Karon Apprentice, from Joseph Lallo for my review.
It is difficult to explain how great this book is without giving away the whole plot, so please forgive the lack of details! Additionally, while it is not YA fiction, there are no sex scenes or offensive language. It makes it quite obvious that an excellent book can still be written without those elements.
The world created for the series is one of dragons, sorcery (both good and bad) and characters that draw you into their feelings and actions. But on a deeper level it shows how tragedies that come along can either spur us to become greater, better and more compassionate, or tempt us into justifying any action to serve our ends.
So if you are looking for a great fantasy read, start with The Book of Deacon, and don't stop until you've read the entire series...and crossing your fingers for more!
