Editorial Reviews

James A. Cox
The first volume of a trilogy, The Adventures Of Jecosan Tarres, Book 1: The Journey by Laura Lond is a superbly written novel with strong moral values which is suitable for readers as young as ten, yet deliberately written to appeal to readers of all ages.
Harriet Klausner
This opening gamut of The Adventures of Jecosan Tarres is a fantastic coming of age fantasy starring a young hero who believes in himself and his cause. The support cast, especially the ethical Dalian, enables the reader to better understand Jeco as he accepts his impossible quest with some doubts that he will not allow to incapacitate him. ... Fans of all ages will root for Jeco who makes this a stirring character driven thriller that will send fans seeking the continuation of his adventures.
