Overview

Plunged again into the gray world of Lyric and Hazor, Susan and Mark search frantically for their teenage son, Jake, as all signs hint that a trusted ally has betrayed them. Assassins, political intrigue, false leads, and near misses beset their path, which will lead them into the dark prisons of Hazor before the One’s purpose is revealed.

Cast out by those he trusts and preferring to cross swords with the One rather than yield to His will, Kieran flees to enemy Hazor, only to find that the One knows no borders. Pursued by his calling, Kieran finds a boy without a home, a king with burning questions, and a nation torn by darkness. As he embraces the tasks the One has set before him, this new Restorer learns that the One requires his all—perhaps even his life.

This Carol Award-winning novel is now in a new edition that includes a devotion guide, bonus scenes, and other great extras to immerse the reader in the world on the other side of the portal.

Editorial Reviews

Endorsement - Donita K. Paul
“I loved this book! Sharon Hinck takes the meaning of being ‘a sojourner in this world but not of it’ to a new dimension. Our heroine returns to Lyric with one goal: finding her son. The new Restorer has one goal: avoiding his calling. Both ask honest questions that plague most Christians in their walk with an all-powerful, all-knowing God. And the answers come in unexpected ways that satisfy the reader’s thirst for knowing God.”
Endorsement - Kathryn Mackel
“The adventure of The Sword of Lyric lives on in The Restorer’s Son. The pages seemed to turn themselves as I entered a world of peril and wonder, despair and hope, doubt and fear. Sharon Hinck’s masterful storytelling demonstrates why Christian fiction is such a blessing-at the same time I was thoroughly entertained, I was also inspired and challenged. Once again, I loved The Restorer’s Son and can’t wait for the next one.”

    Sharon Hinck has created one of the most vivid and enchanting worlds in
    all of Christian fantasy with her Restorer series. If I were able to
    visit a fiction fantasy world, it would by Lyric. (Though I would
    struggle between that and Narnia!) I *love* Lyric - the people, the
    culture, their dedication to the One. But Lyric isn't all music and
    praise. There's a very real evil at work in the land, and the battles
    are fought with real weapons, both physical and spiritual. When the
    first edition of The Restorer's Son came out, it was my first
    introduction to the Sword of Lyric series. I read the book in one
    sitting, absolutely captivated by the story of Susan and Mark entering a
    portal to another world in search of their son, Jake. I was drawn to
    Kieran's struggle against the One's call on his life. The mark of a
    great writer is the ability for a reader to place herself into the
    story, and I was right there with Kieran as he ran past the borders of
    Lyric, and straight into an evil that chilled me to the bone. Now the
    extended edition is available, and I'm once again swept away to the
    world of Lyric. There's so much new, fascinating, thought-provoking,
    entertaining levels to the story! If you didn't read the first version,
    you MUST read this one. And if you did read the first story, you already
    know you MUST read this one!

    The Icing on the Cake!!

    The Restorer's Son Expanded Edition is the icing on the cake! For those of us who've come to love the folks of Braide Wood (& will admit to having gotten so thoroughly engaged in the stories, that we found ourselves praying for "Kiearan" and other characters in our daily quiet times!), RSEE (Restorer's Son Expanded Edition) is everything we loved about the original, and all that we secretly hoped would be added, since we couldn't get enough of the characters and stories the first time around! :-)

    I admit to being a bit of a Kieran fangirl (he's a bit Mr. Darcy, a bit Han Solo...exasperating and enchanting all at once!), so this book is a particular favorite in the series.

    I majored in English in college & took one whole semester of Lewis & Tolkien as my textbooks, so my taste in spec fic is pretty high & picky...!!

    Sharon Hinck joins an elite list of my favorite authors who know how to use the vehicle of fiction to tell the One True Story & to tell it well. Thank you, Sharon!!

    In her Sword of Lyric series, Sharon Hinck created an amazing world to be found through the portal - Lyric, Braide Wood and Hazor, and wonderful characters like Susan, Tristan, Kieran and Linette. While the original edition of The Restorer's Son was a can't-put-down experience, Hinck's expanded version takes us deeper into this world, into battles between good and evil, between hardened hearts and the One who sees all, knows all - loves all. Not even the tough and hardened, reluctant hero Kieran can stand against the persistence, and love, of the One.

    Following Kieran into battle, watching his struggle to accept his call and lay down his will before the One, makes us consider our own daily struggles to be more than we are. The additional discussion guide, the added surprises that Hinck has included, make The Restorer's Son Expanded Edition even more impactful.

    This is not a book to be taken lightly - it is to be experienced. Journey with the characters, sing their songs, even eat their food. You'll be left wanting more! And you will be changed by your experience with the One.

    Loved this book and series

    I loved this series when it originally released...a shock for someone who is not a fantasy person. I'm thrilled that it's been rereleased with additional scenes and lots of goodies added in. If you didn't read this series the first time, do yourself a favor and read it now. It is wonderful!
