Those of you who know me recognize I do not pull my punches. These books surprised me in a good way. Though it is targeted at teenage and YA girls (I think), this ol’ curmudgeon enjoyed the series a lot also. The main characters begin as teenagers and grow to adulthood throughout the three books. They go through many trials simply because they are so young and immature. Through much of the beginning of Karis, I simply wanted to smack one character or another ’long side the head. But those tribulations are part and parcel of those years in all of our development into adults (assuming we ever arrive at that level of maturity).
I came to know the characters well and enter into an empathetic relationship with them. This is superhero stuff, comic books, and all the rest of the silliness. But it’s not a silly story. The tale has worth because of the spiritual content. The characters grow in meaningful ways. There are plenty of twists.
Karis, the 15 year old becomes an orphan
Shockingly orphaned at 15, God works in her to give her the desires of her heart—really? A superhero???
From the blurb: **Content advisement: Though this is a book with strong, Christian values, there is, in an effort to keep characters authentic, some mild cussing. (Light PG-13).**
So this is a Christian Batman with Robin and Batgirl? No. First of all it’s not camp or comedic, though it is quite funny in places. This is a tale told as if it were real. About the content advisement: Personally, I wouldn’t call them strong, Christian values—but Tamera is a believer and it rubs off—eventually. For a Bible-thumping charismatic, like myself, the Christianity is quite tame. There’s no spiritual warfare, for example. However, the lives lived by Tamera and the rest are real. That’s what matters. The people who are believers take it seriously, and that’s a rare joy these days. I guess I’m too old and jaded. I can’t remember any of the cussin’ but maybe that simply shows how well the reality of the book shows through.
