I started reading this myself and ended up getting into a bedtime routine with my kids by reading this to them. The book is pretty good for kids except for the fact that there are plenty of times where even I had a hard time understanding what was meant by a particular part of the prose. Many times large words are used and makes it a bit hard for the kids to understand those things as well there were just times where the sentence itself was just hard to understand... then again they would ask questions and learned more due to it.

Personally I found the book a bit too long for what actually happened. I found that the introduction to the 'mythical' beasts at the start of the book was way overdone for what we got to learn through the story. I think... more rumors and less impending doom at the start would have helped that, although that change also may have made the beginning a bit boring as well. I found it odd that every moment at the start they ran for their lives, then suddenly they were able to just stop and start living in a town without much care in the world. I thought at any moment they would be attacked, but no.. that did not occur. Maybe there is a very good explanation that I missed, or that will become apparent in later books (it is an extensive series) that explains the apparent stopping of the attacks.

I certainly like the spiritual implications in the story. A world that looks at prayer as a recreational thing and someone that gets the wild hair to really start effectively using it in healing and such. Very cool story of a rekindling in faith for all those around Alec as he called for things that were effective yet scoffed at from the start.

Alec's rise to power was interesting...

I purchased the first book in this series after seeing several positive reviews. I also purchased the second, as I'm always willing to believe an author can improve after a first book. However, I found the books excessively expository in nature, the conversation in them awkward and annoyingly religious. Christian fiction should have been the first tag on these books. Also, the author could benefit from a better editor. Far too many words are used to express thoughts and ideas; and young, runaway circus animal tenders have advanced vocabularies and formal language skills that are not believable.

I also found character development to be unbelievable. Too many serendipitous happenings because "God has a plan" really made this difficult to read. And finally, some egregious grammar and anachronistic words (rookie, throttle, guys) made this painful to read. I give two stars because the story line itself is well constructed and I wondered what happened to a couple of characters all the way to the end of the first book. Also the magic system is interesting. But after reading the first two books, I can't keep going. I'm not that curious about what happens next.

I really enjoyed this series up until book 6 (Saving the Ingenairii).
This particular book was quite good.
World setting and political posturing is well detailed and orchestrated.
Religious themes are in place and serve to move the plot but don't disproportionately dominate the story.
In book 6, this series takes a turn for the worse... to the point that I've stopped reading it mid-book.
I will probably post a review of that book with spoiler alerts in it.

I can't really entirely blame it on Christianity but since I don't know enough about any other religion that's the one I'm pinning it on.

I'd suggest this book to religious people, and I'd not suggest it to people like me who can only take so much sappy religious nonsense before they need a good ol fashion heroic fantasy.

These books are a wonderful epic. I loved them and faithfully read onward until my eyes were falling out of my head. Alec, the main character grew enormously throughout the books. He is chosen by God for an over-the-top destiny. His willingness to say, "yes," no matter what he was asked to do led him to many adventures and gave him the opportunity to grow in his gifts and skills and be an important instrument in the fate of his world. He also fell from Grace, so to speak, and had to redeem himself, which led an interesting depth to his character.

There is definitely a belief in God in the books, which I, personally, related to and thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated; but for someone who is not on my same wavelength, I would say the books are not overdone or oversaturated with religious overtones.

The novel is well thought out, gives good descriptions of each of the countries/inhabitants that Alec interacts with, and takes the time to develop Alec's character so that the reader knows him very well and roots for him more and more. For me, the author is definitely world building, even though the separate worlds co-exist on the same planet; and I was fascinated by the subtle way in which he compared the fantasy world of his books to our own planet in some ways--especially the part with the reptiles.

One excellent point the novels make is that humans have enormous, unlimited potential when linked to the Divine and are serving the Divine. Alec represented a Divine Human, with enormous potential that he was favored to use because he stayed committed to whatever was needed of him.

Thought provoking, entertaining, engaging, interesting, I very much recommend these books to anyone. They are fine reads, each one of them.
