This wasn't a typical story with fairies, unicorns, and dragons (which I was expecting), but really a beautiful new concept I had never read before. I absolutely loved how she wove in the need for ALL to have salvation from Jesus Christ because we ALL have been exposed to sin (fairy or not). In many ways, this was a powerful story of redemption.
Bellanok was so much more than a story I read for pleasure. I was strongly touched by many parts and believe one of them was instrumental in opening my eyes to being at peace with some of the things in my life. It took me a day or two to process one particular conversation between Fauna and Brian and believe it will be something that stays with me for a long time.
The only thing I was seriously bummed about was not knowing what happened to a certain character from the war. He wasn’t mentioned again and I was EAGERLY hoping he would pop up later.
Overall, I very strongly recommend this story to those who love fantasy (especially dragons) that desire a strong Christian message.
Roman was my fave character in this one, how he protected Fauna and befriended Brian.
There are so many cool creatures in this story, but I didn't really feel like I got to know them as well as I would've preferred. Unicorns, dragons, and fairies were the main good guys. There are also Orcs, goblins, giants, and demons that are the bad guys. The demons are mostly dark clouds with arrogant voices, nothing creepy at all.
It was truly amazing witnessing how Brian gets his faith back and how his faith is a direct result of his power in saving Bellanok. He's a pastor who has dedicated his life/adulthood to God and yet the struggle is real and he doesn't discover his true abilities until he surrenders his anger and embraces the call on his life. I definitely understood that! Really loved that sword, the Garden of Eden and other Biblical references, and how even the creatures have to repent to hear The Father's voice clearly after sin taints their sacred land. A nice Christian fantasy!
UPDATE: This is for the full-length version.
I connected more with Brian once he was in Bellanok. The supporting characters also added dimension to the story. I read it in parts as they were released. I thought the entire story came together well. I did feel like the end was a bit rushed and would have liked to have seen a bit more detail at the end.
about salvation, but then again, this is fiction. An enjoyable light read.
As the story begins, we see that evil has found a way onto the island—in the form of a unicorn, of all things! Fauna’s mission, given by “Father” is to locate Brian, a down-and-out pastor ready to give up on his ministry, and bring him to Bellanok. Evil is also searching for Brian to prevent him from going with Fauna—a perfect set up for some exciting battle/action scenes—and the demons are in hot pursuit throughout.
The first spiritual allegory I ever read was Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan, and I’ve loved these types of stories ever since. Bellanok: The Reluctant Savior is different, but it’s equally full of excitement as well as being fun and entertaining. The dragon character, Roman, is an absolute gem.
I look forward to finding out more about what is happening on the island of Bellanok and what Brian’s role will be there. Great, fast-paced read!
