I’m really excited about the first few reviews that have come in for ONCE WE WERE KINGS, the launch date of which will soon be announced.

Here’s what they’ve been saying so far:

“…[Ian Alexander] delivers a very pleasing fantasy epic.”
“…seems to parallel some of our own socio-political climates, in regards to terrorism, racial and cultural biases, religious biases…”
“…many pleasant surprises…”
“…definitely recommend it, especially to those who are fans of novels such as Narnia”
“…I look forward with great anticipation to see what occurs next with some of the characters from this [book].”
“…You won’t be disappointed.”
~Rhodes Review

“…a page-turning epic fantasy adventure…”
“…right out of the Golden Age of fantasy…”
“…elements of Tolkien…the Belgariad, the ‘Adept’ trilogy by Piers Anthony, and a healthy dollop of C.S. Lewis’ Narnia Chronicles.”
“…Ian Alexander provides a spark, a momentum often absent in other epic fantasies.”
“…Compulsively readable…”
“…an admirable debut novel.”
~Michael Bellomo, Amazon Bestselling Author

“Ian Alexander’s ONCE WE WERE KINGS sets new standards for epic fantasy.”
“ONCE WE WERE KINGS transcends the qualities found in such great works as “The Chronicles of Narnia” to “The Lord of the Rings”.
“Alexander stands alone as a true master of the written word.”
“…a thoroughly magical story filled with memorable characters, danger, hope,inspiration and romance.”
“Alexander’s ONCE WE WERE KINGS should sit on the highest shelf of your library.”
“A sparkling story that will leave the reader breathless and wanting more.”
~Susan Wingate, author of DROWNING and the award-winning BOBBY’S DINER series

ARCS for Once We Were Kings are going out!

I’m excited.  Very excited indeed.

I’ve got reviewers, early readers and others looking at ONCE WE WERE KINGS.  The hope is that I’ll gather a good number of reviews and endorsements before the official launch.  Some of the reviews will go into the front matter of book itself.  Others will hopefully appear on Amazon and and even in a section on this website.
