Lightraider Academy Book 1
By James R. Hannibal
Hardcover ~ Kindle ~ Audiobook
The fate of the Dragon Lands are at play.
The knights of the Lightraider Order disappeared nearly two generations past. Now, the Keledan have withdrawn behind their barriers, and the Dragon Lands of bordering Tanelethar are overrun with dark oppression. The people are living in disobedience to the Rescuer who freed them long ago.
A shepherd boy, Connor Enarian, and four young initiates rekindle the fires of the Lightraider Order in the hope of striking out across the mountains into Tanelethar to destroy a portal and stop an impending invasion.Once in the Dragon Lands, Connor learns that the key to success lies with a missing Lightraider spy and his lifelong companion, a talking silver wolf.
Can Connor and his friends find the spy before the portal grows too large to destroy? Or will a local young woman—or Connor’s own family history—betray them?
The dangers and secrets of Tanelethar test both trust and loyalty, and to save his homeland, Connor may have to sacrifice his innermost dreams.
Wolf Soldier really caught me by surprise. A mix of fantasy and Christianity, like I’ve never seen before.
We follow a group of young adults training to be lightraiders – the good that protects others from evil. Along the way they learn a lot about themselves as well as growing closer to their higher power. Dragons, orc’s, goblins and other monsters are constantly attacking the cadets. Can they win the ultimate battle?
James Hannibal does an exquisite job at blending these two genres together. If you’re not a Christian you wouldn’t even realize the similarities between the Bible and some of the story, you would just see an incredible start to a new fantasy series. However if you are familiar you will notice the Armor or God, The Fruits of the Spirit and the gift of God’s sacrifice for us.
Such a unique book that is worth checking out. I personally can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
