An empire among the stars, a child heir, an empty throne...

Written by homeschool alumnus Shannon McDermott at the age of 20, The Last Heir (384 pg.) is a great read.

I just ordered the new book,

I just ordered the new book, "The Last Heir" for my 13 year old son. I just wanted to thank Shannon for writing it. My son is very much into sci-fi and 'kingdom' type books. This new book will be a great combination for him. There are some Christian works of fiction of this type but not a lot, so thanks for your effort. I believe he will enjoy Christ,Charity
