A Christian-faith based theme, this read offers an engaging adventure that is geared towards young adults. Based on Ephesians 6:11, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil,” the author has written a wonderful fantasy fiction novel – involving hope, encompassing the unseen war of supernatural evil perpetrated upon unsuspecting souls upon Earth. The story takes place in Fountain Gorge, a small city in the Northwest United States that is under siege from a portal of evil that needs to be shut. Kaleb James, at only 12 years old, is the chosen one within his family to break a generational curse. This curse has caused the death of five children within the same family. He and his cousin Kate set out to find the precious hope – a jewel -that will stop the evil and reverse the curse that has been cast on generation upon generation.
Fast-paced, exciting and beautifully illustrated, the book is filled with adventure, faith and action from the beginning as the author teaches to readers to find hope and trust in God no matter what as the team overcomes what seems to be insurmountable mountains that stand in the way of truth and justice. This is a classic story of good versus evil, with good overpowering the evil through intriguing characters, encoded prophecy, clues and journeys that will keep young adults and pre-teens glued to what’s happening next. A highly recommended fiction fantasy novel that will give young minds an inspiring and faith-based read.
