The Shoals of Ammoron is a work of political and pseudo-historical fiction penned by author Alex Hansen. In a fictionalized ancient civilisation, similar to those of the Greeks or Romans, we find ourselves witnessing a major crisis. The fair and balanced Judge Pahoran, who has ruled his lands well among a council of his peers, is pushed out of office by a bloodthirsty monarch who seeks to conquer a warring country nearby. Pahoran must regretfully enlist the services of Moroni, a military commander, to regain control and save his country. But Moroni is a savage and dangerous fighter, filled as much with venom as he is with charm, and this unlikely pairing might either spell salvation or disaster.
Alex Hansen has created a familiar world in the capital of Zarahemla, not too distant from real history but also refreshingly different in some of its practices and policies. The political message of the work is certainly comparable and relatable to modern day struggles and conflicts, but the brutality of basic combat and the time of physical heroics make for an interesting, genuinely life or death atmosphere on every page. None of the central characters is especially likeable, viewed more as a players in the wider picture of events, but central warrior Moroni does steal the eye as we wonder constantly what the reckless and mercurial figure will do next. Fans of historical war stories and modern day political thrillers are sure to find an exciting new genre in Hansen’s work, and I’d definitely recommend The Shoals of Ammoron to them.
