    A great read

    Bottom line – TLDNR – This is a very entertaining book. It is exciting, has great characters and great descriptions of the spiritual battles. This book is of the same caliber as Peretti’s books, “Piercing the Darkness” and “This Present Darkness”. IMHO. A helpful hint is keep the glossary close. There are a lot of things about this book I enjoyed. I liked the aspects of Nordic culture (Vikings). Although the pronunciation of some of the words is tough. The Glossary helps. I liked the farming community setting at the start, the trials and the way life changes. Brother Finn is a great character and adding the children to the story is a new and interesting way to develop the story. I really like the discipleship aspects between Bro. Finn, Reimar and the other children. Later in the book, the questions of evangelism are explored. The spiritual battles are epic because the battle is happening in the world with the characters and at the same time in the spiritual world. The way the author works in the church and the Protestant reformation is extremely interesting. The different skills and trades of the priests, the politics, the aspects of steam punk and swords and sorcery sci-fi are all here. The “bad guys” in the book are an extremely interesting race or tribe and they have aspects of the native people of North America and Africa. Which do include some of our perceptions and prejudices. In my opinion, the book is as good as Peretti’s books, “Piercing this Darkness”, “This Present Darkness” and “The Oath”. The descriptions of what is happening on a spiritual level and how it touches the character’s world and their reality is especially intense. I also see aspects of the book that are like, and just as good as, Ted Dekkers, The Circle Series. If you like Christian Fiction, you will like this book. It had me thinking about the story and the characters for weeks after reading it. Bergamot is wonderful, and watch for Daniel…read it and see! I understand there will be more too!!!
