Paragon, Shauna Alderson

Now that high school is over, Randi just wants to live her quiet life in her little town, but it doesn’t feel right without her friends there. Ever the daredevils, they’ve gone to seek adventure in the capital city of Grandin, and Randi can’t help but feel left behind. Not to mention that she definitely can’t stop thinking about that kiss she and Eddy shared before he left.

When Randi discovers a mysterious mark on her skin that matches an illustration in A Handbook on Paragonhood, she’s thrown into a world of powerful gods and ancient magic that she thought only existed in the myths. She’ll have to step out of her comfort zone-and into the dangerous streets of Grandin-to find a way to protect herself and the people she loves.

Randi’s not the only one with a secret, and she finds herself questioning who she can trust.

With the fate of the world on the line, can she live up to being one of the chosen?

Paragon is a sensational novel written by the exceptional and talented author Shauna Alderson wow what a stellar story! Paragon is a book I was keen to read ever since discovering it because I always love to find unique, thrilling, and mysterious novels to read so when I discovered Paragon I thought ‘is this finally the perfect book?!’. Now that I have finished Paragon I can happily write that yes it is book lovers. Paragon is an incredible novel that should not be missed and a story that I recommend! However, if you need more convincing then continue to read to learn more about the wonderful Paragon!

Paragon is a fantasy adventure novel that will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the story, Randi. Randi just wants to settle down and live a quiet life in her small hometown after she finishes high school, however, she longs for more. Randi misses her friends but they have all gone to Grandin, a capital city, and she can’t help but think about what they are getting up to and can’t stop thinking about Eddy, the boy she shared a kiss with before he left.

Soon Randi’s life gets more complicated when she discovers a mysterious and strange mark on her skin that is the same illustration found in a book on Paragonhood. This forces Randi to go to the city to learn about this mark and thus herself and what follows is truly sensational and should not be missed book lovers!

The story of Paragon is a thrilling one thanks to the enthralling and action-packed moments as well as the unpredictable nature of the book that will have the readers turning the pages with haste from beginning to end. I love books that involve a journey because usually in these stories the character develops and grows as they overcome events which in turn adds to the development of the character and explores life lessons throughout the book and that is most certainly the case with Paragon! What I loved most about Paragon is that the reader is taken on an adventure that is continuously evolving and changing and that in turn kept my attention from beginning to end.
