Overview

"I am assigning a guardian to ward you. His name is Roman." Thus begins Surchatain Karel’s explanation to his daughter, ten-year-old Chataine Deirdre, as to why her life is about to change dramatically. Karel’s small country, Lystra, possesses the only navigable river on the southern coast of the Continent. The provinces that surround Lystra want its river trade, and will do anything to gain it—even kill the heir to the throne. So Karel places her life in the keeping of the most capable and trustworthy soldier he can find.

Willful and spoiled, Deirdre sees this guardian only as another servant to be mastered. She teases and abuses him as he places his life on the line for her day after day, year after year. Deirdre does not know at what point she begins to love him. But Roman knows from the very beginning that to love her will mean his death.

The Annals of Lystra begin with Chataine’s Guardian, continue in Stone of Help, and conclude in Liberation of Lystra.

    Great Medieval Fantasy

    I love this book. The story of spoiled Dierdre and her patient, self-sacrificing guardian, Roman, is timeless and touching, a lovely picture of the great love story. A must read.

    WONDERFUL BOOK!

    This book is an absolutely thrilling book! Roman is a clear picture of Christ throughout the books and I think that that is really cool. This book after reading the first four chapters became my #1 favorite book!

    A Treasure

    I read this book about ten years ago. This book helped to redefine my faith in God when I was at a young and influential time in my life. I was heart broken when it went out of circulation soon after. I am excited that the book is in circulation again so that it can have a similar impact on other young people who find it hard to find a glimmer of hope in their faith during this age in which we live. I fully intend on reading this book over and over again as I did when I was younger.

    A Great Beginning

    I read this book at a time when I was simply reading anything and everything and this one happened to be on my Mother's shelf. With it's oh so lofty age I read it and loved it. I read it over and over again, the characters are wonderful, the story flows together and on into the next two books. After reading this one you'll want more and you'll wonder if you have what Roman does.

    Excellent

    This book was great! I couldn't put it down. I loved the way that the story flowed as the Chataine began to realize that she was in love with Roman. There were so many twists and turns...anybody who reads it will love it!

    It's awesome

    I was hooked on this book. I read it over and over again. It's a great book. It reminds me of Christ and His sacrifice for us.
