Bryan Davis is an amazing author! This series is one of the best I've read. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, and up till the wee hours of the night. I love the way the characters each have weaknesses that God uses for greatness. I would recommend this book and the series to anyone!
I absolutely loved the first book! The sequel is also a very well written book. At first I must admit being a little confused by the dimensions and all the people trying to give Nathan advice. If the author was trying to make the reader understand Nathan's confusion, he did a good job! Yet, despite my confusion and the feeling that the book was a little bit weird, I pressed on to the end. My endurance was rewarded with a solid and dramatic ending to a very wild tale. I encourage all readers who might have a hard time comprehending all the book's material to complete the book anyway. As you come upon the last few chapters, everything becomes clear. Eternity's Edge leaves you thinking and wondering how you can apply it's lessons in real life.
Wow! Hang onto your seats everyone - when you read this book you are in for a wild ride!!! This is book #2 in a trilogy and it is wonderful. One word of caution though, I highly recommend reading the 1st and 2nd books back to back so you stay in the flow of Earth Red, Earth Yellow, Nathan Blue, Clara Red, Nathan Yellow, etc... I actually picked the 1st one up and read the last few chapters to try and refresh my memory but I know that reading them in direct sequence would be very helpful. I read the 1st one back in June and have read 75 (no joke) other books in between these two so no surprise that the details were a little fuzzy :-)This is a mind bending thrill ride that will take your breath away. It may be hard for preteens to follow, but teens and adults alike will love this book. I can't wait for #3 to come out and wrap everything up for me! I just kept thinking what a cool movie this series would make...
Bryan Davis second offering in the Echoes From The Edge series is a thrilling, fast-paced fantasy novel for teens. Eternitys Edge continues the action-packed adventure of teenage hero, Nathan Shepherd and his friend, Kelly as they try to save their world. They battle beings from parallel dimensions and encounter worlds very different from the home they are trying to rescue.Davis brilliantly draws his teen audience, exposing them to God throughout the story. The characters are likable, the plots are engaging, and the science fiction/fantasy genre is bound to spark the readers imagination. I highly recommend this series.
I really liked this one. I absolutely loved the first in the trilogy Beyond the Reflection's Edge and now I'm really excited about the third coming in 2009, Nightmare's Edge. This series has been my introduction to Bryan Davis and I admit he has taken me on quite the adventure. This journey into the fantasy world or alternate Earths has been quite invigorating. So many twists and turns that it is hard to keep up, but so worth it. I highly recommend the series.This book is still full of the morality and virtuous parts that made the first book so enjoyable as well as the awesome plot. But this novel has some growth of romance that would give even the disinterested person chills. It is marketed as a Teen Fiction, but as a young adult I thoroughly enjoyed it and I definitely believe that other adults would as well, the only thing teen about it to me is that the main characters are teens.Fast paced and a complete thrill ride, this book brings you into a reality that is complex but amazing. I would not recommend reading this book alone, although you could. I'd say you should go back to the first book to get the full benefit of this continuing story as well.
