My 10 year old son absolutely LOVED this book! He could not put it down and finished it in just days. He is begging for the entire series! I am reading it to see what makes this so much better than the other books he has read and so far (I am on chapter 5) I am thrilled with the quality of this book. Ed Dunlop uses scripture in a fresh and fascinating way. Without quoting Bible verses he has taken them and woven them into the fabric of his book. He has taken the Biblical truths of God's message of Salvation and applied it to the life of his main character Josiah in an EXCITING, GRIPPING, CAN'T PUT THE BOOK DOWN way. I highly recommend this book to everyone regardless of age/gender!
In order for me to review a book, it has to be REALLY high on my list. My 10 year old daughter LOVES these books! She can't put these books down. I love the character traits and values that these books teach. It is really hard to find good quality reading for kids anymore. I highly recommend these exciting books. My 12 year old can't wait to start reading these.
I bought this book for my 10 year old daughter who has lost her interest in reading and also struggles with her faith. The author paints the characters well and gets to the heart of the message of salvation. We have really enjoyed reading it together. We look forward to getting other books in this series. I would advise caution with the first few chapters as the setting is graphic and could be upsetting to younger children. Would defiantely recommend this to friends.
