Avalon: a book review

Avalon by Valerie Howard

Avalon by Valerie Howard

Treasonous young Mara has been sentenced to hard labor in the slave yard before her certain death by lashings. Hatred for King Aldus of Avalon drives her every action until one day when Prince Justinius personally offers her an ultimatum. Will Mara chose to befriend her sworn enemies to spare her life? Or will she side with the rebels and die in her fierce pride?
A Christian allegory.

How does one describe or review a book like Avalon? The description didn’t really tell me much about the story, so I had absolutely no idea what to expect. What I read was completely unexpected.

Valerie Howard wrote a fantastic allegory/parable/story picture of Christ’s love and care for His Bride. It was written in such careful detail, that I could almost feel, touch, taste, and think the same things that Mara did.

Writing Style:
Though the book is in what I believe to be the fantasy genre, the writing style, speaking, and setting seems very medieval-like. The style is almost poetic at times and very well done. I read this book in two or three sittings and would have read it in one if I hadn’t had other, more urgent things to do.

Rating: 5/5

General Writing:
The writing in general was very good. There only a very few typos that I noticed and the sentence structure was well done. There were a few times when the writing got a little confusing and I wasn’t exactly sure what had just been described, but nothing that pulled me away from the story.

Rating: 4/5

Morality/Religious views:
This book described Christ’s free gift of salvation in a very unique and captivating way. The allegorical imagery makes the Bible seem more alive and vivid than it ever had before.

Rating: 5/5

Overall rating: 5/5

Coming on Friday…

Most, if not all people here in the United States of America know that the Friday after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday.  Black Friday is the day of all days for shoppers everywhere.  But, what’s a girl to do when she:

  1. Doesn’t like crowds.  At all.
  2. Doesn’t like shopping.  (Yes, I know this is a terrible sin for a girl)
  3. Would much prefer to stay at home.

Well, how about this for an answer?  Be involved in two different Black Friday promotions, host a Black Friday Facebook Party, and be a participant in another Black Friday Facebook Party.

So, what are my promos for Friday?  So glad you asked.  First, my signed paperback copies are on sale (Friday only) for $8.99 + $2.25 for shipping.  To find out more go to my website.  Second of all, on Amazon, the Kindle version of my book will be free on Friday and Saturday.

In addition to those deals, I will also be a part of a group of authors offering their paperback books at somewhere around 20% off.  More details on all of these deals will be posted here on Friday.

The two Facebook Events I am part of, can be found here and here.  The first link is an event that involves 32 Christian authors who are all have special deals on some of their books.  I will have a website link on Friday that gives more details about each author and what their deals are.

Do you go shopping on Black Friday?  What is your favorite Black Friday memory (shopping or otherwise)?
