Course Description:

The Struggle of Allon by Shawn Lamb is set in the fictional land of Allon and is the 1st in the book series. It shows Ellis (the promised son of Tristan) and Shannan (the daughter of Allon) fulfilling the prophecy of the return of the Guardians and the defeat of the dark way. 
We will also be reading the 2nd, 3rd and 4th books “Insurrection, Heir Apparent and A Question of Sovereignty”. We will be discussing the books over the year. 
In this book there are 4 main figures to know. There are Guardians are immortal beings created by Jor’el to aid the mortals. Mortals are the “Normal” people of Allon. Jor’el is the God figure, and Dagar is the Satan figure, a Guardians who rebelled against Jor’el.
 Allon is written by a Christian author, and much like C. S Lewis you can see a lot of biblical parallels in her books. We will be reading and discussing the books.
