"Nothing special" is the best way to describe Owen Reeder--at least that's what he's been told all his life. When a stranger visits his father's bookstore, Owen's ordinary life spirals out of control and right into a world he didn't even know existed. Owen believes the only gift he possesses is his ability to devour books, but he is about to be forced into a battle that will affect two worlds: His and the unknown world of the Lowlands. Recommended for ages 10 to 14.

Author Jerry Jenkinsnoted for the Left Behind series, his work with Moody magazine, and the creator of the Gil Thorpe sports comic stripcollaborates with Chris Fabry, writer, broadcaster, and radio playwright. They enthrall their audience with graphic detail; an intimate, secret-sharing style; grand, widely scoped adventures happening in convincing, other-worldly ways; intrigue; and a taste for various unusual animals.
Many Christian themes appear in The Book of the King that flow naturally throughout the story, growing in compass as the characters grow in personality. In a chatty, clarify-the-situation style, the authors now and then point out a moral. These themes include: evil in mankind; treachery from friends; lies vs. truth; various kinds of courage from forthright to knowing when to run; as well as recognizing both the dangerous and the helpful. Savvy mentors will find that discussion flows easily from these ideas. Further themes are only beginning to be seen in this first story, and they surely will gain form in future books.
The Book of the King closes on a fascinating note, but does not end. Readers are left saying, Hurry up with the next installment! Although a wholly-modern tale with fear, danger, and imminent violence abounding, the writing style is reminiscent of the nineteenth-century Christian classic author Charles Kingsley (most noted for Water Babies). The reader needs only a slight twist of imagination to inwardly hear the authors Jenkins and Fabry narrating this tale. This facility makes The Book of the King a splendid read out-loud volume for families and other groups. Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

Q: Does this book specifically mention God or Jesus? I would like to give to my nephew who's parents might not appreciate an outwardly evangelical book.
No, there is only one mention of God in the book in reference to a story. Mostly, references are to the "King".
