Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite “Time is an illusion until God’s appointed time.” This is oft repeated, stressed, in fact, in Lorilyn Roberts’ aspiring young adult novel, Seventh Dimension: The City. And what is the seventh dimension? Mathematically, it is quite beyond our simple expectations, but if we think in God’s perspective, it is all consuming, everything and beyond. Shale and Daniel are off on another adventure, one that takes them into the realms beyond this world: the underworld and Hades. Evil forces are set upon luring the young couple from their blossoming faith in the Messiah, King Yeshua. Shale has spoken out about her faith at school, to her mother and her friends, even to her father, Brutus, and his frighteningly mystical wife, Scylla. Not all have listened, but when she’s sent on a treacherous mission across the ocean to Israel to find the scrolls she had buried in another time, another dimension, she continues to share her belief even when she feels her own faith challenged. It is a difficult time with her home country of the United States blacked out by some mysterious force, and the world and within Israel erupting in chaos. But once she meets her old friend, Daniel, whom she met previously in another time, another dimension, she is set on her course to follow him and find his father who is being held captive somewhere in Nepal. To what end? Well, that’s the adventure and it’s a real end-of-the-world thriller with all the evil forces rising up. Armageddon is nigh, but will evil prevail? Lorilyn Roberts captures the reader’s attention from the very first line and carries the excitement to a compelling climax and resolution. Her sense of adventure parallels the adventure of learning and accepting our Messiah, in living our faith to its fullest. The story is one of a series, but it can and does stand alone as a powerful witness to the supremacy of our living God. An exciting read, but also a deeply emotional and thought-provoking one.
Eight stars for the City! The City: A Young Adult Fantasy (Seventh Dimension Series Book 4) How nice to revisit the now familiar characters of Ms. Roberts’ Seventh Dimension series. The gifted and sensitive teenager, Shale, is once again the lead character, and it’s so nice to have her reunite with Daniel on her quest to find some missing ancient scrolls and his to find his father…highlighted by the revelation that Daniel is now a follower of Yeshua (Jesus). Full of references to warnings in the book of Revelation, the struggle between good and evil is captured in this book full of time-travel and apocalyptic theory. I love Daniel’s final message, “All it takes is just one person to make an eternal difference in the life of another.” I look forward to another book in this series.
