"The Palace" is Laura Lond's continuation of the "superbly written" story of Jecosan Tarres, as reviewed by readers young and old alike.
Having completed his difficult journey, Jecosan makes it to his destination – the king's palace – but so has his enemy, whom he is yet to discover. Jecosan enters in service to the king as a kitchen worker, proving himself worthy of the task and more. Still, he has much to learn while looking to fulfill his purpose. Although court life is luxurious and splendid, it is also complicated, with its hidden laws and unspoken rules. King Alvard III is a young and ambitious monarch whose hot temper is only restrained by one fearless lord, and in the presence of his sister, Princess Arvelina. Seeking counsel from the magician Henky-Roo, the king orders for the ancient Book of Light to be stolen from the neighboring kingdom of Tirgan. Little does he know that in doing so he may destroy his own country and people. Reports of a mysterious horseman being seen throughout the area thwarting the army and deterring the plans against Tirgan only infuriate the king.

I personally like the second book better than the first, and I hope my readers will, too. The book is very different. There are many new characters, some of them with very strong personalities, so you may even feel that Jeco, the main character, is somewhat pushed aside. This was meant to be, as we see a much grander picture unfold; but Jeco is still there, very close to the center of all events if not in it, so his fans do not need to worry.
I am being asked time and again whether "The Adventures of Jecosan Tarres" is a children's book. No, it's not, though it is perfectly appropriate for children and especially recommended for family reading. My readers' ages range from 8 to 101 years old. I wrote the book for all generations to enjoy, and I am very happy to see it happening.
