Shadows: Book of Aleth, Part One

By: Michael Duncan

“If history is written by the victorious, what if the victors lied?”

A stolen text...When the Book of Aleth is stolen, Aaron, captain of the Royal Guard, is ordered by Emperor Therion to reclaim the ancient tome. The mission thrusts Aaron into a world he's never known--a world of elves and dwarves, races long thought extinct; a world where everything he has known and believed is a lie.

A secret past... Forced to challenge his long-held beliefs, Aaron and his companions, two soldiers of the Royal Guard and two men of the Dwarvish kingdom of Brekken-Dahl, set out on a quest to recover the Book. Aaron resolves to discover the truth, and rescue the empire he is sworn to protect.

Shadows: Book of Aleth, Part One, sounds so intriguing. I usually stick to reading romance (that's no surprise, right? lol), but I have to check this book out! Congrats, Michael!

Clare and Michael,

Great post. Shadows sounds wonderful! It's so nice to get to know you a little better.

Michael Duncan said...

Thanks for letting me visit here!

Much of our world has hidden the truth in the shadows. I hope that those who read this story will discover a need within themselves to pursue the truth no matter how difficult the challenges are or how large the obstacles.

Dora and Mary, it's my prayer that you enjoy it immensely.

Michael, great to get to know a bit more about you and yours. Sounds like the Lord is really keeping you busy! I pray your words touch the hearts of all who read them!

Michael Duncan said...

Thanks, Donna. Busy is, perhaps, the best place for me. It keeps me out of trouble! :)

I liked your comment about how our world has hidden the truth (or at least has tried to.)

Hope your book helps shine light in the darkness. :)


Michael Duncan said...

Thank you JoAnn. It is my prayer as well that God can use my efforts to His glory and the shining of the light of truth.
