Young Llama Thoughts
Ok, this was a book I read a LONG time ago…but it was really weird and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to review it or not. There is some weird almost magic in it, crazy characters, and strange almost Christian feel to the story. (But I REALLY can’t tell if it’s a Christian book, or just plain weird…)
The book is about this kid named Errol who has been drunk since he was like 12. And it’s his adventure about being tied to the church, (which isn’t really a church) learning he’s a reader, (which means you can make these magical ‘Lots’ and almost tell the future) and fighting these weird ferrals, which are like possessed wolf people… (See, now you see why I can’t tell if this is a Christian book. It’s like the Church is good, but also bad. They do believe in God I think, but they call Him something else. There are weird herb woman, who I think talks to…something weird… Oh and a creepy possessed temptress lady is in there too…. So I don’t think this is kid-friendly or Christian-friendly either)
Over all, I DON’T suggest this book to anyone. It’s just a little too weird for me, and I don’t think it’s a good book to read. I will be returning this to the library and never seeing it again! -The Young Llama Reader.
- Fun adventure?
- Really weird story…
- Lots of violence
In the backwater village of Callowford, roustabout Errol Stone is enlisted by a church messenger arriving with urgent missives for the hermit priest in the hills. Eager for coin, Errol agrees to what he thinks will be an easy task, but soon finds himself hunted by deadly assassins. Forced to flee with the priest and a small band of travelers, Errol soon learns he’s joined a quest that could change the fate of his kingdom.
Protected for millennia by the heirs of the first king, the kingdom’s dynasty nears its end and the selection of the new king begins–but in secret and shadow. As danger mounts, Errol must leave behind the stains and griefs of the past, learn to fight, and discover who is hunting him and his companions and how far they will go to stop the reading of the stones.
