I can’t tell you how pleased I am that Return of the Guardian King has finally arrived! And I thoroughly enjoyed it. . .the ending to the entire series did not disappoint–it ended as it should, with all the glory you’d expect for any “return of the king” story!
I remember after reading Arena, I couldn’t wait to read Karen’s next book and I even recall my elation at seeing The Light of Eidon for the first time in the bookstore. I really wanted to see more books like this in Christian bookstores.
Now here we are on book four and the conclusion of the series.
I had hoped and planned to post all of the book reviews I’ve written for the Legend of the Guardian King series, but the links at Dancingword.net (where my reviews are posted) are down for now.
Still, the blog tour will be replete with many reviews. I believe Shannon McNear is posting an interview with Karen, but first, visit her original interview at Christian Fandom. As always be sure to read Becky Milller’s blog, and Mirtika Schultz who are never lacking in relevant content. All of these links can be found below along with a multitude of other participants.
Hopefully, before the end of the tour, I will be able to post all of my reviews as well as a review of The Return of the Guardian King.
In the meantime, I thought it would be great fun to run a small contest (of sorts). I’d love to hear from you which of Karen’s books, specifically which scene, affected you most in spiritual terms. In each of her books (including Arena) I’ve found that I think about the story and my perception of God in my life. Each book has spoken to me–to the specific spiritual journey that I’m traveling at the time. I’m still mulling over Return of the Guardian King and the deep messages within. So, I can’t as yet comment on that. The Shadow Within affected me deeply. It seemed that during that period of my life, the Lord was speaking to me through the words of that book.
If I have time to go back through the book, I’ll try to search for specific phrase and be more to the point.
Regarding the contest (of sorts) I’ll choose one of the comments to win a free copy of any of Karen’s books. (if they’re not sold out)
