This is a small, but truly enjoyable, Christian, epic fantasy. The characters are interesting: both good and evil. The warfare is strongly and well done. Parts are very sad. Much is gloriously joyful. The relationships are well-drawn and real. It edifies to watch believers deal with horrible trial and come out better for it. I refuse to spoil it.
The world built is a little thin. I do enjoy details about the new world in which I am living. But the story is good, clean fun.
You will enjoy this book! I have toned this down a little from my Amazon review. I’m a bit gushy because I just finished several Christian fantasies where I felt emotionally battered by the time I finished the book. This one has some rough parts [as does life], but true friendships and loving relationships carry the day and make this one so much better.
