Overview

    Walter, Ashley, and Karen ride the dragon Thigocia in search of her son, Gabriel, and her long-lost mate, Makaidos. When Walter and Ashley find an army of giants hibernating in the depths of the earth, they meet a mysterious girl named Sapphira Adi who claims to be thousands of years old. Sapphira reveals a sinister plot, conceived centuries ago by Morgan Le Faye and the devil himself.
    The giants awaken and ascend to the Earth, ready to carry out a scheme that threatens the entire cosmos, and only dragons can defeat them. Since two dragons remain on the earth, and one of them is reluctant to fight, doom seems certain. Still, there is hope. In another world, a former dragon awakens to a new existence and learns that a prophesied deliverance requires the death of a willing lamb, and a handicapped little girl who wants to die to end everyone’s suffering, including her own, steps forward as the only candidate for the sacrifice. The greatest of dangers, building to a climax in three different worlds, meets the power of love and sacrifice in Enoch’s Ghost.

    Outstanding!

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Enoch's Ghost! I love how Bryan Davis is able to keep ... *counts* ... 4 plot lines going throughout the entire book, and then flawlessly bring them all together to the climactic ending.<BR/><BR/>What a beautiful story of sacrifice and love - I could read and re-read this book as many time as I want, and never ever get tired of it. It's message gives me a sense of hope and peace, reminding me of the unfailing love of my Savior.<BR/><BR/>I applaud Mr. Davis for yet another beautiful installment in the Oracles of Fire series, and I can't wait for the next one!<BR/><BR/>Thumbs up, Mr. Davis :)

    Oustanding!

    A long awaited sequel to Eye of the Oracle does not disappoint. Continuing from where the Dragons in Our Midst saga left off, Enoch's Ghost does not disappoint even though Billy Bannister and Bonnie Sliver are not active. Ashley, Walter, and Karen set out with Ashley's dragon mother as they search for Ashley's brother, Gabriel, but in the process they are hindered by a dragon of old and a plot to connect Heaven with earth. They discover Sapphira Adi, a girl who is thousands of years old who lives deep underground with slumbering giants. With scenes that have you crying, climaxes that have you wanting more, and a great story plot that never ceases to amaze, this book is a must read!

    LOVE THESE BOOKS!

    This is a great book! i highly recommend it to teens who don't understand the bible or just don't want to read it. This book shares stories from the bible in a way that is complicated in a good way. It is also just a great book on it's own. there is romance, action, Fantasy, and a complicated plot.

    Bring Kleenex

    As evil forces seek to merge heaven and earth, the former dragons and their allies seek to stop them. Events build to a climax in three different worlds, with an unexpected, heartrending conclusion. My personal favorite of all Davis¿ books.

    A reviewer

    Once again, Bryan Davis has woven together a captivating story of hope, despair, and peril into yet another incredible novel. I felt as though I was experiencing everything alongside the characters, as they themselves where experiencing it. I was spellbound the entire time. I was thrilled to see how Mr. Davis had weaved together many different plotlines into another amazing story. I look foward to the next two books in the Oracles of Fire series. Bravo, Mr. Davis!

    Excellent Title

    Having reached the sixth book in the DIOM/OOF universe, I wondered what surprises Bryan had up his sleeve, as book series can fall into a routine or even a rut after a while. No worries here. Enoch¿s Ghost has several surprises for longtime readers, some pleasant, others shocking. The story is actually more complicated than the above synopsis. Coming off the large tome Eye of the Oracle, the cast remains quite big, with many of the characters from the previous book making an appearance. The book is broken down into several subplots, with several characters or groups of characters off on their own quests, often in other dimensions entirely. The book is mostly a cosmic journey, with perhaps the least amount of time spent on Earth in all of the DIOM/OOF books. There are scenes in the otherworldly Bridgelands that reminded me a lot of the forest in The Magician¿s Nephew. We catch up with Timothy in an idyllic world that¿s similar to the world in Ted Dekker¿s Circle Trilogy. These places have lots of cool touches, from the Prism Oracle, the map of the cosmos that shows Heaven, Earth, Hades, and the Bridgelands, and the new world where purple and white dragons roam. If I wasn¿t occasionally reminded of the characters¿ modern day attire, I¿d forget this took place in the present. Enoch¿s Ghost is much like Circles of Seven, but taken up to the tenth power. We literally go to Heaven and Hell in this book and experience what each has to offer. Walter ends up actually seeing the Lake of Fire and several of its condemned recipients, and it¿s like having ants crawl all over your body. Elam, much like Billy in COS, undergoes several tests of his character, one involving the return of Naamah, whom I didn¿t expect to see again. Her storyline is beautifully rendered all the way to its conclusion, one of my favorite touches. Bryan has packed this story with so many meanings, so many Biblical allusions that a single review is inadequate to explain them all, nor could I, nor would I want to. I hope readers pick up on many of these themselves. A mysterious woman attempts to dissuade Elam from walking across a narrow bridge, claiming he is impure and couldn¿t possibly have the faith to cross it. Elam later finds ten wanderers that believe themselves to be faithful, but are hampered by false doctrinal thinking. That¿s just to name a few. Toward the story¿s climax, we get a gut wrenching event that I didn¿t expect. Wow. Just wow. Someone dies, someone young, and it seems pretty permanent. This event really sets Enoch¿s Ghost apart from the previous books. Before, none of the younger heroic characters died in the course of battle. For one of the good guys 'or girls' to get killed, that¿s a real toughie. We¿re talking Star Trek II-quality death scene here. Bryan also gives the scene a further dimension, perhaps implying that said character may have chosen whether to ultimately enter Heaven or to go back to Earth. Like I said, wow. As Mr. Beaver said about Aslan, ¿Safe? Course he¿s not safe. But he¿s good.¿ We could say the same about Enoch¿s Ghost. It doesn¿t contain objectionable material. It does present the consequences and punishment of wickedness, the need for sacrifice for others, and the possibilities of redemption, all in the starkest images that I¿ve ever seen in the DIOM/OOF books to date. And the best news is, there¿s still two more books to come. Anyone who accuses Christian fantasy of being a rip-off of its secular betters would be put to shame after reading Enoch¿s Ghost. I know of few current-day works like it. It¿ll leave a big impression on you even after you¿re reached the final page.
