I’d suggest all readers read the first two in the series: Soul’s Gate and Memory’s Door, not just because they are fabulous novels but they provide a valuable introduction to this final episode.
This one starts where the last one ended, the Warriors Riding hoping to take some time out to rest and convalesce after the battle with Zennon and his demonic warlords. However, the Spirit has other ideas and it isn’t long before the battle is renewed and with tragic circumstances.
Two additional characters play pivotal roles. Simon, who we’ve met previously, and are never quite sure whose side he’s on. Rubart manages this ambiguity brilliantly. The second, Miyo, is in fact a new character and she plays an important leadership role in discerning the insidious plot of Zennon.
Brandon and Dana’s characters are well developed in this episode and I especially grew to like both of them. The romantic tension between them continues as an undercurrent but doesn’t distract the reader in developing empathy for them both.
What I particularly appreciated about this episode is how Rubart presents spiritual warfare in the context of the daily battle we all have in surrendering our desires and hopes to God. He explores it through Reece, Brandon and Dana demonstrating how each of them unknowingly allows the enemy to infiltrate through some form of self-glorification.
This culminates in a fantastic final battle scene that is magnificently described allowing the reader to visualize it effortlessly.
This is a wonderful series that so powerfully demonstrates spiritual warfare in a fictional context that is uplifting, challenging and thrilling in its suspensefulness.
I can’t recommend it enough and so look forward to reading Rubart’s next creation.
I've always been fascinated with the story of Phillip disappearing from the Ethiopian's sight. I've said before that Phillip was only about the master's business and thus was used by God in such a supernatural way. When you read this book, remember that anything is possible with God.
These books present a unique allegorical look at the spiritual realm and the battle that each of us engages in on a daily basis. Each book leaves you thinking about your own spiritual condition and teaches many valuable life lessons. One such lesson in Spirit Bridge is found in the admonition for one of the characters to, "turn for good from thoughts that are lies, and believe fully that you are loved simply because of who you are." As children of the King of kings, this is a message all of us need to remember.
Another aspect that makes Jim's books so powerful is his understanding and portrayal of real characters. As a creative type, I loved the statement in the book that, "The highs are sky high and the lows are the deepest valleys for many, many artists. For them to be able to tap into the emotional depth you see in their novels, songs, and paintings, they have to be able to experience great sorrow along with great triumphs."
I highly recommend this series of books, and especially Spirit Bridge.
