The Steel Breaker Saga started as a deal Jonathan made with his oldest daughter. Trying to encourage her to purpose her talents in writing, he told her he would write a book if she did. Jonathan kept at it and routinely gave her drafts of the first book to review with him. This series is his promise to his daughter.
“Shadow Tracker is an engaging and exceptional book. If I were asked what my favorite part was I would say all of it. I love how Alcasia and Robyr were slowly developed through the story, and I could relate to them. All of the main characters, including Alcasia, Robyr, and Trepuk, are compelling and fascinating.”
“I’ll be sharing with my friends in hopes they read it or their kids get interested in [Alcasia’s] story also … you’ve definitely got me hooked.”
