The Call of Agon by Dean F. Wilson
His task seems insurmountable, but Ifferon must assure that an ancient, yet powerful monster, Agnon remains entrapped in his eternal prison. His weapons? Powerful blood flows through his veins, he has a sacred scroll from the god Telm and he knows his mission can NOT fail. But is that knowledge a help or will it be his downfall as the weight of his quest bears down on him. They say there is power in knowledge and in friendships, when the time comes, will Ifferon’s journey end in victory with his allies by his side or will his journey first teach him about life, people and more importantly, himself?
Dean F. Wilson’s The Call of Agon is a fantasy lover’s dream as he paints a world filled with myth and mystery in the classic battle of good vs evil. Ifferon struggles with the pressures placed on him. Through Mr. Dean’s words, the emotional turmoil sparks the air with tension as we follow Ifferon’s journey, his struggles and the often bitter discoveries he makes of the world around him as he follows the path the gods, the world and destiny need him to.
I started this tale, standing alone on a blank canvas, but quickly Dean F. Wilson filled his canvas with color, places, people and his own brand of magic. I was traveling with Ifferon every step of the way from his flight for safety to his march to destiny and battle against the vile forces of Agon’s minions. Will Ifferon have what it takes to from deep within to stand as defender and victor?
I was so deep into this world I found completely returning to reality difficult as I revisited and pondered those special passages that seem to be saying something more, something deeper. Mr.Wilson knows how to connect with his audience and keep them enthralled, without a doubt! Not for the reader who wants a fast read, but for one who wants to live each moment in a world far away from our reality.
