I Really approve of this book it sometimes made me cry which many books do not. It spoke of King Eliam which represents King Elohim dying for the sake of his people and rising from the dead just as the Lord died on the cross for our sins that we may live eternally with him then the Lord rose from the dead. The story has truths from the bible that we can take and use in our daily life. It's awesome details and characters make the story even more interesting and epic! Great book! Thumbs up!

I loved this book so much. I couldn't put it down. I happened to see it in the library and was so thankful I did. Couldn't wait to read it again.
I started to read it this year, but I am so sad! The writing is really young and the characters seemed younger. If you like this kinda thing, it is definitely for you, if not, try the Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander.

It is wonderful! It has many elements and shows how a teen can grow. The medieval element is very cool! I hope you enjoy reading it.

I loved it, it had l lot of Christian references, and it had a good story line. It was "real" meaning that the good guys don't always win, and the bad guys always are menacingly leaning over them. I give it 4 and a half stars.

This book is too similar to Lord of the Rings for my taste. It contains too many cliches and is generally unexceptional. And another thing; King Eliam just comes back from the dead for no reason. One minute Paragor's slicing his throat, the next he's walking around his palace like nothing happened. And when Aidan asks him why, he essentially says, "Because I'm me." As Leonard Nimoy would say, "This is highly illogical." Aidan, in my opinion, is a teenage stereotype. He plays videogames all day. And the third chapter spawns this shameful quote; '"I'm serious, Mom, it was this huge shadow," Aidan said, his mouth half full of pizza.' He complains about his parents not understanding him. He complains about being bored on summer holiday. He complains about moving and hates his new town. He thinks only about how difficult his parents are, his social standing, and "surviving highschool." He uses terms like "cool". He is a vacuous teenage archetype. I dislike the author's bland prose, incessant pointing out of the obvious and abuse of onomatopeia. This novel has a few redeeming qualities. Good imagery once in a while. Good villain. I wouldn't read this book again. It has little in the way of originality or artistic merit. This book is a perfect example of a poorly written allegory; awkward and unsubtle. It is childish and amateurish.There are bigger fish in the sea. I love Christian allegories but this one is awful. If you want a good Christian fantasy novel, read Patrick Carman's Land of Elyon series or Garth Nix' Keys to the Kingdom.
