For years, tales of
from another world kidnapping and enslaving humans have been circulating in Jason Masters world, while for a slave girl named Koren, the stories of a human world seem pure myth. Together, these two teens will need to bridge two planets in order to overthrow the draconic threat and bring the lost slaves home.
The mysteries unfold
As a Starlighter, Koren knows her destiny is to save her fellow human slaves from the dragons bondagebut by following the orders of the smooth-talking dragon king, Taushin, has she in fact doomed her people and herself? As Koren struggles over her choices, Elyssa discovers a new aspect to her Diviner gifts when her pendant begins to unlock mysteries surrounding the stardrops from the Exodus star.
Soon Elyssa, along with Jason and his father, also uncovers new truths behind the dragons prophecy and learns that Randall has teamed with Magnar and Arxad to wage battle against Taushins followers. With a major war imminent and talk of a new Starlighter in the air, confusion and uncertainty reignsomething Taushin might have planned for all along.
Davis is an expert storyteller, and Diviner does not fail to impress. The strength of the friendship between Jason and Elyssa is beautiful, a good example of what true friendship means. This story is filled with many incredible lines that not only move the plot along, but also make the reader pause and think about his or her own life. When Koren questions Elyssa, who has never felt the bondage of slavery on Starlight, about whether or not she is truly free, it makes Elyssa stop and consider. As she later discusses it with Jason, the two realize that not all chains are physical.
While the main characters are all quite heroic, each has a personal struggle that he or she must overcome in order to help set the slaves free. Koren struggles with using her Starlighter abilities for good when all she knows is slavery. Elyssa doubts herself and her gifts. Jasons will to fight often makes him blind to other situations that are more important. These struggles make the characters more relatable and serve also as a mirror into our own hearts.
Setting the slaves free serves not only as the main plot, but also as an ongoing theme. Just as Jesus set us free from bondage, the goal of the Jason, Koren, and Elyssa is to throw off the chains and set the captives free. The ideas that Davis uses have a clear basis in scriptural principles. It is refreshing to read a Christian fantasy novel that is both exciting and thought provoking. Those who have read and enjoyed Daviss other dragon-filled works will like Diviner. The ending leaves the reader eager for the next book in which the final battle is to be resolved. From the Northlands on Starlight to Darksphere, Diviner takes the reader on an incredible journey. As a fan of fantasy, I would definitely recommend this book.
