Book Description

Those in deepest darkness fight most valiantly for the light.

Hard pressed on every side, the Dibor struggle to overcome insurmountable odds in an effort not just to regain territory, but to survive.

In addition to the growing ranks of the taken, Morgui has summoned the powers of nature to search out and destroy the saviors of Dionia. Tempests hunt those forced to flee by sea, while an otherworldly fire storm chews up the ancient forest of Grandath, destroying anything - or anyone - in its path.

While most of the Dibor manage to survive, the whereabouts of the ill-fated Princess Anorra continues to be unknown. Her faithful friends are unaware of her suffering behind the gates of Haides.

The remaining Dibor soon discover that there is more to Morgui's madness than simple mayhem, as the dwarves reveal startling knowledge about the Two Trees, and worse still, about Morgui's attempt to forever thwart the Most High's plan for victory.

As Creation itself endures death throes caused by mounting evil, one thing is clear: Dionia and her champions will never be as they once were. Nor will those in worlds beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent! April 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The final battle for Dionia is at hand.

When I began Athera's Dawn, I was extremely excited. While I had read the first two books in the trilogy several times before, this was my first time reading the final book in the trilogy. I was a little nervous how it would turn out. So often, a great series would be ruined by a not-so-great last book. How would Athera's Dawn fare?

That's for you to find out.

Athera's Dawn was bittersweet for me. For two years, I had been hanging at the edge of The Lion Vrie and wondering how my beloved characters would survive. At last, I could finish the series, but in a way, I didn't want it to be finished. I didn't want the adventure to end.

In a word, I might describe the White Lion Chronicles as "painful". It's really painful reading. So many beloved characters suffer, and some die, and often it's what we call "dark". But in the end, that's what makes it so amazing. The price was paid for a brilliant ending.

The plot of Athera's Dawn was fast-paced immediately, picking up right where The Lion Vrie left off. Nearing the middle, however, it slowed down some, putting it ahead of Rise of the Dibor in plot pacing, but just behind The Lion Vrie.

Sir Hopper's writing style is at its best in Athera's Dawn. There were no major things that I would list as a "con" of this book. There were two minor notes: first, it didn't seem like there was one, coherent climax, but rather a few smaller climaxes lumped together. Second, there were a few moments that felt "convenient" to me, and others that felt unrealistic. These were, as I said, minor.

The characters of Athera's Dawn live and die and love, and Hopper does extremely well in showing the ups and downs of each character.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Grand Delight January 22, 2012
Since meeting Mr. Hopper for the first time at a group signing, and buying his first book, I have been hooked on this series. To finally see its completion, 4 years later, has been an amazing moment. As the page count grew, so did Mr. Hopper's skill in writing and devotion to the Lord, from what I can tell. This final volume didn't disappoint. It was filled to the brim with virtues and lessons.

Knowing that many Christian works of fantasy have depicted "the last battle," I think this one has done it very well. The sense of triumph is full, and I experienced much joy simply in reading about it. Mr. Hopper holds a firm grasp on the reader's emotions, and for that I commend him. This series is one you won't want to miss!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Trilogy Worth Reading September 15, 2013
Not perfect but I highly enjoyed Christopher Hopper's White Lion Chronicles. Maybe due to time off to think or maybe some other reason, the five years it took to write book three showed in his writing style and story-telling. While I found book one to be excellent, book two dragged a bit for me and then book three became and exciting conclusion to the trilogy. Lots of battles and many surprises kept me gripped to the story. If you like a story that is well wrapped up at the end, Christopher has quite the Epilogue to answer any questions you might have.

The message was Biblically sound and motivating. There are a couple of theological questions I have but since this is a work of fiction I'll let them pass. After all fiction can be interpreted in more then one way. My guess is the unbeliever will enjoy this series too as would a teenager. Most fantasy has an air of religion so why not read a book that promotes the only Truth?

If you like fantasy or at least a good adventure then do not miss this trilogy. The characters are rich, likable and colorful. The action is well-written and not overly graphic. The love story part is thankfully downplayed. I would have liked to have seen a map included that was readable and complete because the geography in the story was hard to follow.

Christopher fell in love with reading because of Stephen R. Lawhead's "The Song of Albion" trilogy. If you enjoy "The White Lion Chronicles" then get yourself a copy of "The Song of Albion". You won't be sorry.

Highly recommended.

1 Star = Pathetic
2 Stars = Fair
3 Stars = Good
4 Stars = Excellent
5 Stars = Life changing

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dawn has finally arrived! December 28, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Athera's Dawn was phenomenal! The best of The White Lion Chronicles has finally made it to the hands of it's readers after a 5 year long wait since The Lion Vrie. We are reunited with our heroes we love so much, Where they face annihilation. Morgui is ready to release his plan, to kill The Most High's Son. But meanwhile will Luik and the Dibor return from Kirstell? Will Anondo and his men live to survive a horrible hurricane that seems to be hunting them? will Thad and Thero survive? Will Mt. Dakka still be standing when they return? And the worst of all what will become of the mortally wounded Princess Anorra, who has been taken prisoner, and her friends know little of her where a bouts and her suffering in Haides. This series was the best I've ever read, the stories were written very well and the Characters were seamless, Where modern age Tolkien meets Lewis in this grand finale of The White Lion Chronicles. This book in particular had me crying, cringing, shouting, and cheering. It felt like the story was so real I went on the journey with Luik, and struggled with him and the rest of the Dibor in their countless battles, I felt the pain of Anorra's suffering and frustrations in Haides. I went to war with these wonderful characters as well as I went to war with myself, and I came out victorious on both battle fields. All Thanks to the Savior who gave it all to save us all.
A Must Read Series.
