Publisher's Description

In this work of allegorical fantasy, author Joe Boyd takes us on a pilgrimage to a land of two kingdoms, but only one true King. An ancient land, where children never grow old. A living land, where foundations grow in trees and rivers sing and breathe. But also a dying land, where the darkness of a false prince threatens to swallow everything in its shadow.

Enter the adventure with Tommy, a child of the Great King, as he and his friends accept the challenge to live as grown men and women in the Lower Kingdom—where hope is hidden, vision is clouded, and pride twists truth into a beautiful yet deadly deception.

In Joe Boyd's fairy tale, Between Two Kingdoms, everyone in the Upper Kingdom is eternally seven years old. Those in the Lower Kingdom age normally. The two Kingdoms are divided by the Gate of Separation, and both are filled with tree houses. The Great King and Good Prince preside over the Upper Kingdom, while the Lower Kingdom is ruled by the Dark Prince. When Tommy is asked to go to the Lower Kingdom, he is speechless. Why would he leave the Upper Kingdom? Why would he leave his friends again? But, because the Good Prince asks him too, he obeys.

Tommy is first sent into the Lower Kingdom to find a friend of his whom he met when he was there before. After finding him, with the Good Prince by his side, he is able to persuade his friend, Bobby, to come back to the Upper Kingdom with him. The two go back, and Bobby turns into a seven-year-old again. But, something went wrong while he was in the Lower Kingdom. He wasn't sent alone, but with two other companions: Luke and Amanda. While Amanda was playing with two girls, trying to get them to go to the Upper Kingdom with her, Luke went off on his own and was captured by the Dark Prince. Luckily, the Good Prince is later able to rescue him and take him back to His Father. All is well, until the Good Prince tells Tommy he must go back to the Lower Kingdom for a while, because of the plot the Dark Prince has against Him and His Father. The Good Prince tells Tommy it was what he was born to do.

In this action-filled, analytical story of the Kingdom of Heaven and of Darkness, author Joe Boyd spins a plot that is engaging and that makes the reader not want to put the book down. He uses the power of storytelling to bring hope and to lead others to Christ. Boyd does a wonderful job of developing the characters and making them seem real. His dialogue is well written and the story is very engaging. The book was also fast to read, even with 191 pages.

I would recommend Between Two Kingdoms to preteens, since it is more of a fairy tale, however I'm sure anyone would enjoy it. It would make a great book to read and then discuss in a youth group setting. – Mindy T. Kreilein, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Between Two Kingdoms is Jo Boyd's take on a Kingdom of God fantasy, complete with a King, good and evil Princes, a magical doorway between two realms, and an atmosphere of both innocence and tragedy. Throughout the tale, we follow our hero, Tommy, and even some of his friends that all are seven years old, while they are in the Upper Kingdom, and as he follows his hero the Prince of the Upper Kingdom. Together they seek to rescue wayward subjects in the Lower Kingdom. Along the way we discover a little something about what it means to have faith, be a friend, recognize true danger, and, perhaps most importantly remember what needs remembering and forget what we need never hold on to.As I first read the book I knew right away what the upper kingdom represented and I knew that this was heaven and the good King was God and that the lower kingdom was hell and Satan rules there, so he is the dark king. The tree houses what was being built on both side I believe represents the mansions that is being prepared for us in Heaven. They are even building them in the lower kingdom but those are the ones I believe that the Good King is trying to convert to the Upper Kingdom.Full of both inspiration and challenge, "Between Two Kingdoms" is a must-read for Believer and Non-Believer alike.I received this book from FSB Associated for review.

    Between two Kingdoms is a story about a Kingdom ruled by the Great King and his Son, the Good Prince. The only thing is that this Kingdom has been separated from its lower Kingdom. Both used to be ruled by the Great King and His Son, but Sinkrada former servant of the Kinghad rebelled against the Great King, which caused a division among the children of the King, therefore a division between the upper and lower Kingdom. Sinkrad therefore becomes the Prince of the lower kingdom.It is a story about reuniting these two kingdoms where the one true King rules. Boyd illustrates the struggles between the upper and lower Kingdom in a way that captivates his readers and pulls them into the story itself. But before the lower kingdom can be reunited with the Upper Kingdom, there is work to do, which involves building tree-houses for people to learn about the Great King. Tommy, a child of the King, is chosen by the Good Prince to be a leader in this adventure. This task, however, comes not without a fight against the enemy and his servants.Boyd does an excellent job at illustrating the struggles Christians face, temptation that befalls them, ministry in this world, and devotion to God. With writing that is likened unto C.S. Lewis and a story line that had me feeling like I was watching a movie, I give this book a hearty 4.5 out of 5. There is only one reason I dont give it a total 5, and this is only a small theological preference with regard to the River. However, given the context of what the story illustrates, this is not that big of an issue. I still love the book and would read it again (which is unusual for me).My vote still remains: 4.5 out of 5!
