This book is awesome--Suspense, danger, and action! I definently wouldn't recomend this for younger kids, (probably 10+) as there is mentions of a 'curse' and some violent parts. (and a type of freaky animal!) I absolutely love this book, and I'm 11, and I've read it a couple times now! Definently one of my favorites!
My wife and I use these books to read to our children every night. They are filled with just enough suspense and danger to keep them enthralled and the strong biblical theme reinforces our teaching. This one is well written and exciting, but it almost seems as if Mr. Peretti used bits and pieces from his other books in this series and made them fit into this region. Still, it is filled with the power of God and the strength of family.
