Continuing my series highlighting the first book in my Legends of the Guardian King series, The Light of Eidon, I thought today I’d draw your attention to the scrapbook I developed for it, similar to the one I did for Arena.
In it I put up several photos of the ancient Nabatean city of Petra, which served as inspiration for the canyons of the SaHal in which the action plays out at the end of the book. There’s even a link to a virtual tour of the area.
Also included is a picture of an LL Bean model from the late 70’s that served as the inspiration for Abramm,
some information on swords, a map of the city of Jarnek,
and a cartoon that was pinned to my bulletin board for years. If you’ve read The Light of Eidon, you’ll probably get the connection. If not… well… as you know, it’s being offered free as an e-book this week HERE… or you can try your local library. Amazon even has a few paper copies both new and used for sale…

I’m enjoying this “trip down memory lane,” Karen, and actually took advantage of the digital download (though I have the whole series in print). …Which reminds me that I need to let some more family know about that! I’ve had a ton of great new books to read recently, but I’ve been hankering after a re-read of LOTGK…I think I will succumb soon. I still look at Arena and that series as one of the first series that helped me really “see” spiritual warfare and how the Holy Spirit works.
Thanks, Loren! I’m glad to know you’re enjoying the “trip”. 🙂 I appreciate the feedback on the books, as well.
Karen, I completely get the cartoon. So funny! I also am completely enjoying these insights into how you keep a story feeling real. While I purchased the series a while ago (print and ebook), I am glad that it is now ‘free’ for those who might have missed out on it due to price.
I loved Arena & The Light of Eidon. I still got a finish the series, having kids will eat up your time like crazy 🙂 Also, I LOVE Petra. The city of my highland dwarves is based on Petra. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
You’re welcome, JL. Petra certainly is an intriguing place!.
