The author is in my writers group, and I picked up the book during a promotion. He stated that he wanted to write exciting fantasy adventures for his daughters like Harry Potter while strengthening their faith in God at the same time. Since I've never read Harry Potter, I had no idea what to expect.
And Christian Fantasy? Magi and obeah who can teleport to anywhere in the world or conjure fireballs in midair...? I wondered how these special powers could possibly focus on Jesus. But Brad delivered! It's a totally Christ-centered story with Biblical Truths woven throughout.
What I found was a wonderful tale for teens as well as adults, great for reading aloud to the kids and grands. It's a story of good triumphing over evil. It's a story of unconditional love. It's a story of winning souls to Christ, even those who everyone has given up on. I liked how the magi never lets the reader forget that God is the source of their powers.
There's examples to show how God can use anyone despite their physical handicaps, how sin separates us from God, how everyone has a purpose.
Pick up a copy of this one - you'll be glad you did.
Great job Brad! Looking forward to more!
