Like the first book, this was filled with great action, great plot, and the same beloved characters. Including Xander, one of my personal favourites. ;)
I really do think that this series tops that of Lord of the Rings, and is right there beside The Chronicles of Narnia. They have a very similar feel to them, and they're easy to follow, while still being utterly captivating.
I touched on this in my review of the first book (LINK), but for me, magic is something I generally stay away from. But there are no spells or really even use of magic, it's more like 'this is their world' and it's fantasy.
The faith aspect was good, and I loved this quote in particular:
"M'dear, if it wasn't for the bad things...good things like meetin' each other never would've happened. The good Lord has a way of turnin' all the bad stuff on its head and redeeming it in some way." - Joanie from chapter 11 page 78/79
And how true is that? God really does redeem us and every bad thing.
I know I mentioned this but "The Flaming Sword" really was FULL of action. Indeed, it was an action-packed book, and so very hard to put down without wondering what was going to happen next! Be ready for a great ride!
Before reading the first book, The Tethered World, I was not a fantasy genre fan. That first book worked down my lack of interest in that genre. It piqued my imagination. The Flaming Sword now has me hooked!
I loved how this second book pulls back the curtain for us "topsiders" to view the unseen with more clarity . The storyline is lined with words that promote a creative imagination. At times,I could truly "see" the scene, the lay of the land, what the Banished looked like and could imagine what they smelled like too.I also enjoyed the story being written from two different viewpoints.
I am somewhat of a romantic meets realist. So the Story of Old, the battle of Good and Evil appeals to me. I want to see Good always prevail and for evil to always fail.
New foes, surprising twists and the knowledge that The Maker has a more beautiful, courageous story weaved for those who believe is what drew me into the story.
I love how this is written as "Family Fantasy". This is a great book to read out loud to your family. Heather has once again created a fast paced, yet easy to follow story that will thrill children and adults alike while interweaving great truths . Truths of the value of doing the right thing even when the cost is heavy. That family is important and where our roots grow. And the Maker can be trusted, that courage is doing something even when you are afraid because it's the right thing to do.
The Flaming Sword is excellent fiction which is hard to come by these days. Very exciting story! Good character development. Plenty of twists and turns but not so many that they make you feel lost or dizzy. My ten year old is about to finish it for the second time if that tells you anything (300 pages).
