I really enjoyed this story for many reasons. If you read this book and don't like it based on the fact that it contains scripture and tends to be a little too preachy for you, then you didn't read the description. The author clearly states that his intention with this story was to write a book similar to Harry Potter while strengthening his readers' faith. He was successful. I'm a Christian, so I was expecting the use of scripture. I am not disappointed. Not only did this book fulfill my expectations in that regard, but it also satisfied my thirst for adventure and fantasy when I read a book. I was hooked on the first page and on the edge of my seat at times. There are a handful of typos here and there, but not enough to make me put the book down or think the author isn't a fantastic writer. And certainly not enough to take away one of the 5stars I gave to him. I look forward to reading future books in this series and recommend it to everyone. Even if you don't believe in God, you can still appreciate this story just as you might enjoy Star Wars and the use of the Force. If you're one of those parents who are against Harry Potter and would like a nice alternative, preview this book, and then let your children read it if you choose. Lastly, my hat's off to the author for the last page. What's on the last page? I'm not telling...
I love to write fiction and fantasy with a twist of faith. I usually focus on a young adult audience, but have ventured into some mature stories as well. But, you don't have to be young to enjoy my writing, just young at heart.
