The Valley of Decision w/ Giveaways

A themed book tour through Prism Book Tours.

The Valley of Decision
The Valley of Decisionby Shannon McDermott
Paperback, 416 pages
May 31st 2014 by SALT Christian Press

"A solid fantasy that wears its spirituality lightly yet effectively." 
~Kirkus Reviews (read the entire review here)

Where the Black Mountains pierce the sky, they divide the south from the north, Alamir from the kingdom of Belenus.

Belenus, the undying master of the north, commanded Keiran the Captain of the Hosts to conquer Alamir.

But the Captain is deep in conspiracy, and he has his own plans.

The Valley of Decision is a fantasy novel, a saga of slavery, freedom, and choices.

Shannon McDermott is a Christian author of speculative fiction, as well as a humorous detective series called "The Adventures of Christian Holmes". She has written both fantasy and science fiction, and has yet to decide on which one to like better.

She was born to Wisconsin, expatriates in California, grew up on the East Coast, and now lives in the Midwest. Her principal hobbies are politics, history, novels, and coffee.


(1) I was born in California but grew up on the East Coast.

(2) I have seven little sisters.

(3) I like sweet potatoes baked or boiled, with butter or with sugar, made into fries and made into pies. But I cannot stand them canned.

(4) I collect dolls and books.

(5) I have sectoral heterochromia, which means that one of my eyes is, in fact, two different colors.

(6) I have voted in two presidential elections. And both my candidates lost. I am confident, however, that they would have lost even without my support.

(7) My mother and I have the same middle name. (Talk about coincidences!)

(8) When I was eight, my favorite book was Green Eggs and Ham.

(9) Though my name is very Irish, the majority of my ancestry is German.

(10) I write the first draft of my novels in longhand.
