The Lord of Long Shadows

The Lord of Long Shadows: Knights of the Fallen Realm: Book 1 by [Anderson, M.]

The Lord of Long Shadows – Knights of the Fallen Realm is an exciting read from a author M. Anderson that will please a wide variety of adventure seekers. The story is crafted with care with a surprising amount of depth making it easy to continue along with the characters while they search for answers and a better existence for the fallen human civilization. Each new chapter brings with it a fresh batch of interesting characters, new challenges, and settings to match. If you’re a fan of epic fantasy books that inspired and, in fact, formed this genre (Lord of the Rings comes to mind), you will likely enjoy The Lord of Long Shadows.

The story follows a young adult, Alex, who was orphaned at the tail end of her teenage years. With both parents gone, Alex was working hard to create a life for herself on her own. Alex was doing okay until she chanced upon a situation that catapulted her into another world: a world where the humans who once ruled the land are now merely sheep in a hierarchical system governed by a rich variety of demonic beings. Alex, having been blessed with powers unknown, now carries the unique responsibility to save the humans she has met. The driving question behind the story is whether she will be successful in her quest, with some events seeming utterly hopeless. Anderson does a solid job balancing out the action with the suspenseful elements of the storytelling, making it hard to tell how each new challenge will pan out.

There are certainly a lot of positives with The Lord of Long Shadows – Knights of the Fallen Realm.  Unfortunately, there were some typos throughout the book, which are not serious enough to hamper the story’s meaning, but they do pull you out of the world the author expertly pulls you into.

Things to look forward to while reading are a creative world full of interesting characters and situations. For a book of this length, the action and quick pace keep things moving at an engaging pace. If you don’t mind typos, there are a lot of reasons to like this story. With a bit of editing this would easily be a stand out novel. In any case, it’s highly recommended to any fantasy genre fan.
