The Quest for Hope is book one in a new young adult Christian Fiction series, Invisible Battles. The story begins with obvious Biblical imagery of the Garden of Eden, but the book itself definitely has it’s own story that alludes to the allegorical nature of Narnia and Middle Earth without copying it completely. Full disclosure, waaay back in the day when blogging was not the industry it is now, I had a Xanga blog (true story) called “Chri-Fi Commentary” where I reviewed Christian Fiction - the good, the terrible and the plain uncalled for. I’m happy to say that while this does has not quite hit epic proportions it is solid piece of Chri-Fi for the teener set, and I think is shaping up to be a decent series. I hope that the internal monologue of Aliatta is continued through her story teller mantle and that the nature of evil in this world is fleshed out a little more (no pun intended) during the course of the series, as I think the struggle is obviously key to the story. If you are looking for a good, clean fantasy series for your kids this is a good one to start, even read aloud as a family.
I got halfway through and finally gave up when I reach the point of almost a deus ex machina. Yes, the high King is a major part of the story line but the sudden radical miraculous interference was just too much to take.
The grammatical and editorial problems peppered through the book would be forgivable or at least endurable if there weren't so many words wasted on wallpapering.
With some serious editorial help I think this could be a great novel. As it stands it's just annoying.
The climax was a bit anti, and I didn't perceive any real struggle between the protagonists and antagonists. The main character didn't make any significant mistakes, the traitor didn't matter in the grand scheme of things ... things went was a bit too easily.
There was a bit of preaching, too. 'After all, for a man, the loss of respect for a job he has worked long and hard on is never an easy thing to bear.' Is the loss of respect easy for a woman or child to bear? I don't think so.
I liked the line, '... the moment you accept and begin the journey is the moment you have also completed it.' I also liked reading about why and how Zohar became the Dark One.
The author also misspelled his characters' names, such as Zohar and Awank. His punctuation was off, and I especially didn't care for the his inability to use 'lie' correctly. Today you lie. Yesterday you lay. Else, you had lain.
In the end, The Quest for Hope was just OK.
I received a free copy of this book from Reading Deals in exchange for an honest review.
It is full of action and battles as Aliatta, the heir apparent to this kingdom, begins learning about The High King, which she has never been taught to know due to the fact that all mention of him has been outlawed. Most people who serve The High King have been exiled or executed. However there are still some small enclaves scattered throughout the land. It is is with their help that Aliatta is able to escape the manor house of her guardians, who are raising her for the king and queen. She learns more and more about The High King as she travels and runs for her life in many cases.
I began reading this book earlier today and read it straight through without putting it down. I couldn't stop reading "just a little further" to see what happens next. It is a really good book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend it for people from early to mid teens and older. If you enjoy YA Fantasy, especially that with a message in the background, I highly recommend this.
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book, through Reading Deals, so I could give an honest review.
