Book Review: The Traitor's Heir

The Traitor's Heir
The Traitor's Heir
By Anna Thayer

Every man has a destiny. His is to betray. For over five hundred years the River Realm has lain in the charge of the Master, and the Master's glory has kept the land strong against its enemies. As Cadet Eamon Goodman swears to serve the Master - his highest ambition - a dark voice penetrates his mind, and offers him unsettling power. Despite having made a binding oath to the Master his heart longs to be a King's man Whom will Eamon betray? The Traitor's Heir is the first volume in the epic fantasy trilogy, The Knight of Eldaran Anna Thayer masterfully weaves a world of intrigue, passion and divided loyalties which will grip the reader from the first page to the last. 

Anna Thayer is an English teacher, she also writes and lectures internationally on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. This is her depute novel. 

When I first started reading this book I could see where it was going. A struggle for the main character, Eamon Goodman between good and evil, and I thought I had it figured out. I have to admit though that the fantasy world created by Anna Thayer with it's abundant imagery is fantastic. It reminds me of the great Narnia fantasy world. If you liked R.J. Larson's King and Shadow Hand
