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.
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!
Two very different worlds collide in this story. I like the fact that Fauna was willing to do what had to be done and seek out Brian. Brian, a preacher, is totally taken by surprise by this new world he is introduced to and goes through quite a bit of emotions.
This story does contain some dark vs. light elements and I am very interested to see where Burke takes it. Oh, and this was the very first Serial I have read and I am torn on whether I really like the idea or am frustrated that I don't have the full story. Part 2 is out so at least I don't have to wait for that! Looking forward to the next!
The author did a great job of developing a storyline that will grab you and fill you with excitement. It is full of action and plot twist that make it a fun book to read. And, it is fun to read a "clean" book for a change without all the language issues.
The cast of characters developed by Ralene Burke are deep and easy to get behind. They are real and very believable which makes the tale come alive.
I enjoyed reading Bellanok: The Reluctant Savior by Ralene Burke and highly recommend this book to all readers.
