The kind-hearted main character, Kyne is disliked, made fun of, and bullied at school. He perseveres and makes his first friend. When he sleeps, he steps into an enchanting medieval-style world of kingdoms, dragons, knights, and magic. He comes to realize that he alone has special powers which enable him to fulfil his destiny and purpose in the world. He prays and is thankful to God regularly, giving Him the glory for being the true sovereign.
Written in the third person, there is suspense and interest all the way making it a very engaging and fun story for older children--I would guess it is geared to ages 7-12. It would also be entertaining for anyone who loves gentle, lighthearted fantasy.
There is little content to consider offensive (unless you don't like sword-fighting, spears, arrows, and such where some people die). There is no foul language or adult themes. One would not have to worry about a young person reading it.
This is fun fantasy
From my point of view, the hero is an amazing kid. I suspect this is true for those of his age group also. The developments into royalty, magic, and superheroes are handled with relative ease. The dragons are cool.
Spiritually, it’s 2.99-star
Though it’s obviously meant as Christian, Jesus or a savior is never mentioned. On the other hand, there is no spiritual evil, at all. Nevertheless, in the context of the story, it’s a faith-filled story by a few characters, on a religious level. The bad guys are your common everyday greedy, power-hungry sinners. But they are also appropriate for the audience and quite nasty.
The evil regent basically destroys the magic world. While it’s appalling, it’s believable, explained well, and there is hope for a far better future.
It is nice, clean, and it should be. It was an enjoyable read, and the bad guys were quite convincing.
Chris gave me a copy to review with no stipulations. The cover was done by his children and they are very enthusiastic about the book according to Chris in the acknowledgments.
