It is the best book I have read in years. Everyone should read this book - but not until you are 9 or 10, or it might be a little to scary. My son and I can't wait to read book 2 and I can't wait to re-read book 1 with my other kids! This would make the best movie ever!

Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5October 14, 2009Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: femaleHunter and his friends play the ultimate prank on the school bully. They hide in a dumpster to avoid his wrath but cant get out. After yelling for help for quite some time, someone finally comes to their aid. This janitor promises not to tell the school principal where he found the boys if theyll do him a favor. He hands Hunter a card with the address of a book shop and asks him to pick up an item and bring it back to the boys bathroom. Feeling as if they have no choice, the boys complete the errand. But when they return to the bathroom with a fancy, old book and a key, the janitor is nowhere to be found.Hunter takes the things home and discovers that the book is magical. Before he can truly figure out what the book is for, he and his friend are whisked away to Solandria, a realm that is at war with the Shadow. There Hunter discovers that he must complete Codebearer training if he is to help defeat this Shadow and get home again. With dragons, trolls, giant birds and lizards, and weapons similar to light sabers, this book was truly fun for all ages. I thought the premise and allegory was very powerful. Hunter is a delightful and sarcastic character. The minor characters were also fun. This was the strength of the book, in my opinion. There were some unnecessary backflashes that jerked me out of the story at times and some writing craft issues that teens probably wont notice. There were also many punctuation issues. I was surprised to see such mistakes in a book from Warner Press. I read it to my seven-year-old son, and he loved it, especially the illustrations. The Miller brothers seem to be quite talented as artists and animators, and now story tellers.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm 32, married to my best friend and a father of two boys. I like to write at night listening to soundtrack music. My favorite dog growing up was named "Shadow". I've been to over 21 countries as part of missions trips in High School. My favorite country was Israel and seeing all of the ancient history that is there still to this day.
What was your motivation behind this project? Most books tend to present the hero of the story as having "good in them"! But being good and doing good things are two entirely different things. My world-view is that we are all inherently evil, we are born with a natural tendency toward that which is bad. It is part of our nature, and something we can only overcome with help from someone outside ourselves.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A better understanding that even in the darkest of circumstances there is hope knowing a greater purpose is at work.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Learning more about God's story unfolding in the world around us. He knew the final chapter before the first one was even written. There is nothing that is beyond his control.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein, John Piper, J.I. Packer, Jonathan Edwards, Toby Mac, Michael W. Smith, U2, Walt Disney, The folks at PIXAR
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: We are never alone. No matter how dark your life gets, always remember that your story isn't finished until God writes the final page. He has a plan for your life, trust him and it will work together for the good. Even the bad stuff.
