    1. SHADOWS: BOOK OF ALETH PART ONE is a fantasy. I think. It has people in it who I have seen somewhere else. A veteran soldier, an impetuous younger one, and another who is brave beyond his rank. I have known people like that. It also has a few people who can think of no one but themselves, and I have known some like that, too. Most of us have known (or known of) people like these. So, when they trudge through snow until their feet go numb, or walk for days on end until they are almost too tired t [...]

    2. The author does a wonderful job of world building. He painted a picture of the scenery and visuals very well. The book is a good clean read, and I passed it along to my 11 year old son who is a fan of Eragon, and other High Fantasy novels. Personally, I am not a fan of High Fantasy, and prefer Light Fantasy with modern characters or Urban Fantasy.We both found the jumping around of POV a bit hard to follow at times, and the action a little slow going in the first half of the novel. Once the Dwar [...]

    3. * Giveaway*Excellent book, the story kept flowing and it kept me reading. I loved the little map that was given in the front of the story to show what the area is like. The characters and areas were well described so much so it felt like you were actually there with them.If you are a fan of Tolkein you will definitely love this book as I have.Well worth a read and I can't wait for the next in the series!

    4. I was hooked on this book when I saw the trailer. Rarely do I read fantasy, but the winged monsters, elves, dwarves, and trolls combined with brilliant descriptions in mythical worlds swept me away. I wanted to keep reading the hero's continued journey as he is determined to fight evil with good.

    5. When Aaron, Captain of the Royal Guard, is given a mission to retrieve a stolen book by any means necessary he doesn’t question his orders. He soon finds that not all is as it seems. He becomes embroiled in the politics of Dwarves, a race of men he believed were fairy tales. He must lead a mission to retrieve the Book of Aleth and to discover the truth. I was pleasantly surprised by this allegorical fantasy of the Christian Fiction genre. The epic fantasy story was original enough to capture m [...]

    6. If you enjoyed Tolkien's world in the Lord of the Rings series, then you will certainly enjoy Shadows, The Book of Aleth.Michael Duncan has masterfully created a fantasy world riddled with evil, sometimes unseen. And through it all, the great hope inspired by The Book of Aleth touches the hearts of even the staunchest unbeliever, and all who learn of it begin to see through the lies of their world.It's been years since I've read anything in the fantasy genre, but I must commend the author for a [...]

    7. *NOTE: This is my husband, Seth's, review as he is helping me get through my gigantic review pile.*Shadows started out fairly stereotypical to anyone who has ever read a medieval fantasy book. It did not get much better from there. I'm not saying it was a bad book. I'm not saying it was good. The characters were strongly written. There wasn't any lagging in the story. It flowed fairly nicely. I just felt underwhelmed by it as I felt I have read it half a dozen times in the past already.

    8. This month we're discussing this book in the ACFW reading group. I found this an interesting book and am looking forward to the discussion.
