The Book of Deacon is the first book of The Book of Deacon series by Joseph R. Lallo.
Myranda Celeste’s world has been built on a legacy of bloodshed. For more than a century, her homeland the Northern Alliance has fought the Kingdom of Tressor in what has come to be known as the Perpetual War. While her people look upon the conflict with reverence, Myranda’s hate for the war has made her an outcast.
When she finds a precious sword among the equipment of a fallen warrior, she believes her luck may have changed. Little does she imagine that the treasure will draw her into an adventure of wizards and warriors, soldiers and rebels, and beasts both noble and monstrous. The journey will teach her much about her potential, about the origins of the war, and about the threat her world truly faces.
Will Myranda unlock the secret of bringing peace once and for all, or will the world be lost to the Perpetual War?

Lallo’s mystical fantasy is convoluted and makes abrupt changes, but he ties up most of the loose ends eventually. And a cliffhanger ending, nooooooo!
I found myself compelled to finish this first story. I felt an urgency to follow and see where the tale went in it's journey. Great characters, from irascible and somewhat immoral wizards to very tainted soldiers and politicians. I did find Myranda a little tedious at times. Even while I could agree with her anti war, anti killing attitude, she did become a little holier than thou at times.
Overall I found it to be an interesting and good story.
