Overview

The Sword of the Wormling (Wormling Series #2) by Jerry B. Jenkins, Chris Fabry

“Nothing special” is the best way to describe Owen Reeder—at least that's what he's been told all his life. When a stranger visits his father's bookstore, Owen's ordinary life spirals out of control and right into a world he didn't even know existed. Owen believes the only gift he possesses is his ability to devour books, but he is about to be forced into a battle that will affect two worlds: his and the unknown world of the Lowlands. Perfect for readers ages 10 to 14 who enjoy a fast-paced story packed with action, fantasy, and humor.

loved the book- bought for my 12 year old son, and I read it after he recommended it so highly. I'm a 38 year old female pharmacist, so the reader audience is quite varied. If you enjoyed "Piercing the Darkness" and "This Present Darkness" you will enjoy reading this 5 book series.

I found these books to be a great read. They are not the most amazing books I've ever read, but they have some great points. I love how the author speaks to the reader and I wish there were more of it.

It's not entirely original for a recent work of fiction to contain an allegorical tale of the end times, so we're probably not surprised with  the arrival of the Wormling series. A Christian series, in fact. I fortunately didn't buy these books, but borrowed them to read  and discovered they're quite simply a waste of time. Let me explain. Most of us are probably familiar with The Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, and other classic fantasy based stories. These bringing  to light some moral points possibly through some biblical analogy. It seems like that may have been the author(s) plan which unfortunately  got side-tracked as they got caught up in the story they were creating.  Yeah, creating. One thing they never tired of was making up new creatures to do their dirty work, namely, to serve the "baddies"  and hurt the "good guys". Hideous creature after hideous creature romp through the pages. Some are barely described and others ignored as you wonder what they look like. A few of the characters on the side of the good fall in this vague place as well, though one is described as having the face of a dog and a rat, thick fur (sheep, dog, whatever?), and hooves of a goat---though not in as many words. Come on!  They seemed afraid to copy characters/creatures most of us would be familiar with and made up their own (that Erol was a  dwarf/Munchkin/elf/what the heck?! The author(s) apparently made up much of these 5 books as they wrote them and they weren't secure  in what they were telling.  The last book is by far the worst: the writers hinting, maybe warning the reader at the coming atrocities, yet reveling in the telling.  Okay, I know things are terrible and will be for all evil, especially as written in Revelation, but the disturbing accounts here are appalling.  "And her blood", says the Dragon, "shall anoint my throne!" Page after page we hear the same gory phrase repeated carelessly till it's  annoying.  Out-of-place modern analogies only contributed to the jumble of confusion. There was even some bathroom humor thrown in,  more than likely to appeal to greater crowds of readers. Yet people call this 'clean!' Toilet jokes are not clean, folks!!  This is more than appalling in Christian juvenile fiction and probably just another ploy to sell more of this drivel.  Chapters are short, only to keep the story moving---and it does, but only on confusing trips seemingly only meant to fill the pages. This is not intended to be a comparison review but if you want a true Christian fiction fantasy, read The Door Within trilogy. Don't read the Wormling series. And please don't give it to your kids.

I could not put any of the books in this series down. I just wish they were longer.

Amazing! 'The Sword of the Wormling' kept me reading from cover to cover (and with me, thats saying a lot)! I got the first book for Christmas, and was awed with it. So, then I went and got book #2. It was so good, I've read it twice now, and you should to!
