Recommended Reading - The Journey

Buy The Adventures of Jecosan Tarres. Book 1: The Journey

Today's recommendation is another series by the talented Laura Lond.   The Adventures of Jecosan Tarres starts with The Journey, a heart-warming story of a boy and his dog.  It's also a pretty cool adventure story with a plucky orphan, magic, a kingdom in peril, and a growing threat of war.

In The Journey we meet young Jeco, an orphan who fends for himself, gathering mushrooms in the forest and selling them in the local village.  His only friend is Gart, a loyal and remarkable dog.  Gradually Jeco is drawn into the society around him.  It's a coming-of-age story, a tale of a boy learning who he is and what his place is in the world.  There's no stuffy navel-gazing here, though.  He's soon off on a dangerous journey to see the king and try to prevent a war.

It's an engaging, entertaining story with an irresistibly likeable young hero.  It's cheap, too.  Just a buck.  Check it out.

Actually, right now is a great time to pick up The Journey.  Surf over to and check out the "Buy one, get one" blowout.  Buy a book for a buck and get a second title free.  My book Lord of Fire is there as well.
