The Call of Agon - Book One of the Children of Telm
Dean F. Wilson
The hurdle that every writer of fantasy fiction must face is that of being compared with the master of the genre - J.R.R. Tolkien. As soon as wizardry, dark forces or a pedigree of ancestors is detected, a disparaging cry will go up from some quarter. Dean F. Wilson need have no anxieties on this score. At no point in his first novel, `The Call of Agon', must we endure hearing about some mediocre Middle Earth. This is an original, gripping saga with, above all, deep insights into human motives and desires. Warriors - like the battle-scarred Herr'Don - contrast tellingly with characters who are not born to combat, like the poet Yavun. Iffeln is by far the most enigmatic figure, and it would not be fair to reveal too much of his pivotal role in the tale.
An air of fear often dominates the story, and Wilson depicts this debilitating emotion masterfully. The Shadowspirits drive men to madness, and they are never far away. But this is not a depressing tale, love that once shone in the Past is rekindled, faith is transformed into hope through courage. Lyrical songs are dispersed throughout the text and serve to lighten the mood. When magic appears, it is introduced subtly and unexpectedly, thus it is all the more marvellous
`The Call of Agon' tells us that dreams and reality are interchangeable, if not inseparable. The major riddle of the tale, `In whose veins does the sacred blood run?' is answered, partly with scholarly reasoning, but mostly through the logic of its own myths. Even in the midst of battle - scenes described with a skilful and dispassionate touch - profound moral questions always remain. The most powerful symbol appears at the conclusion of the tale, most fitting as the excitement does not let up until the final page...and this is only Book One!

I'm fussy about fantasy, having been lucky enough to cut my reading teeth on some of the great books of the genre. Perhaps the key to making me sink into a book is to create a landscape in which imagination can roam. Dean Wilson achieves this beautifully with a wholly believable world, replete with its own unique mythology and history.
Then it goes deeper, and the characters take on life. The initial chapters set the scene, of course, but early in the book there are little glimpses beyond the surface to a complexity that many modern fantasies lack. This is not just a slash and burn adventure... though the adventure holds the attention on its own... It is, in the tradition of the best of fantasies, a book that will make you think about aspects of your own life in deeply symbolic terms.
When Ifferon meets Yavün he asks him a question... "Are you at peace?" Is he? Are any of us when we close ourselves away from the world? And so it begins....
Wilson's style is eminently readable, neither too heavy nor lightweight. Beautifully written and presented the story will capture your attention and imagination and leave you, as it left me, waiting for the next chapter... or indeed, the next book.
Highly recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and have bought the second book in the series. The second half of the novel really comes in to it's own and the action keeps on coming. I love the style of writing and the dialogue is some of the best I've read. Every character has something witty to say and everything is said so well.

I really love Herr'Don as a character - he is instantly likeable and I'm really keen to follow his story in book two. Most of the characters are well developed (the only one I would have liked to see with a bit more character is Thalla - but she was involved a bit more in the second half of the novel and hopefully Wilson has put a bit more in to her character in book two). Each character has their own personality and little quirks that I enjoyed discovering.

I particularly enjoyed the ending - I don't want to give too much away. You could feel it building up as the story went along and I thought it was a very satisfying ending. I am keen to get started on book two and hoping that it is as good, if not better, than book one.

The call of Agon
I am rating this book 4 stars
(2nd book for April)
[...]

Firstly I was given this book for an honest review.

This is not my usual type of book to read, yes I love fantasy but I am more of a Maria. V Snyder type of girl.
The story is told through the eyes of Ifferon who is the last in the bloodline of the god Telm. The God Telm banished the Beast of Agon to the underworld. This leaves Ifferon with one destiny, which is too make sure Agon stays in the underworld, and to help him, Telm leaves him a scroll.
Danger lurks around every corner for Ifferon making his journey hard but he meets people along the way that he be-friends that makes it that bit easier.
His Journey through the world of Iraldas that the author has created is beautifully done, the description throughout the book has you almost feeling everything, yet at times I did find it was too descriptive for my liking, but in saying that still an amazing story of a world at war and only Ifferon can stop it. Throughout the story there is poetry that the author himself wrote, a sign of a very talented person. It can get a little confusing with all the different names of gods and places, but the story I could still grasp.

All in all, I have never read a book like this before, the English in it flows beautifully and has an old tongue to it, the author put a lot of hard work into it, and should be recognized for an amazing first book. I would highly recommend this book.
