Book three in the Echoes from the Edge series begins with Nathan and Cerulean exploring the dream world in search for Jack and Ceruleans supplicant. But the dream world is a dangerous place for a human. Nathan finds Kelly there and is compelled to answer her pleas for help, despite Ceruleans insistence that she is not the real Kelly. This sets the story into a non-stop adventure with our heroes moving back and forth between Red Earth, Blue Earth, Yellow Earth, the world between worlds, and the dream world. They have very little time to find Nathans father, find the real Kelly who got lost in the dream world, find Ceruleans supplicant, and play the giant violin again before the three worlds are forever destroyed. Can Nathan do all this and remove the stone of judgment from his heart and truly love?Wow. I have now read all three Echoes from the Edge books and my brain is still a bit sore. While they left me fully entertained in awe and wonder, I still dont grasp how everything in this multi-dimensional fantasy world works. Were Patar and the supplicants angels and the others demons? Maybe they were beings of Davis own creation? Still, the imagery Davis created was beautiful and haunting. His characters each needed to face their own fears and trust that God would take care of them. This was the message I most enjoyed. That true love is more that a physical, emotional feeling. True love is sacrifice and forgiveness. They joy this kind of love brings to a life is music indeed. Recommended.
In complete honesty, I liked the other books in this trilogy better, but I still enjoyed this one overall. On the low points, I felt this one dragged a bit, until the last one hundred pages or so, which seemed to absolute fly by. the other point was that I felt confused through parts of the book trying to remember features and events that had happened to the characters previously in the other two books.Overall, the series is an incredible use of imagination and imagery. It takes you into a realm of reality that is different from anything a reader has experienced before, and then through out in bits and pieces, the reader is offered a deeper meaning to the entire story. It is creative and leaves one open to ask the right kinds of questions to learn about the ultimate adventure.I definitely suggest reading the series in order. If you attempt to just read this book, you will be quite lost.
Nightmare's Edge is the third book in the Echoes From the Edge series by Bryan Davis,(author of the beloved fantasy series Dragons in our Midst) This book is an exciting mix of love, classical music, otherworldly tech, and solid Christian values! Five stars.
