Product Description

While investigating their Uncle John's attic, Wesley, Kurt, and Lisa mysteriously find themselves transported to Anthropos, a land of dwarfs, goblins, and jinns. There they are unexpectedly given a mission to save a king and a country. The key to their adventure lies in the remote and ancient tower on the Island of Geburah and the precious objects hidden there. What they discover, however, is more than mere treasures. They find a power that could destroy all of Anthropos. In this fast-paced fantasy novel, you will discover how Anthropos was changed for all time. As with the other books in John White's Archives of Anthropos, The Iron Sceptre, The Sword Bearer, and Gaal the Conqueror, this book will delight young and old alike. Recommended for ages 9 to 12.

Author Bio

John White was born in Liverpool, England, on March 5, 1924, and grew up in Manchester. After serving as a reconnaissance photographer in the Fleet Air Arms during World War II, he completed medical training at Manchester University. He later participated in a variety of short-term missions efforts (including Bible smuggling!) and capitalized on many opportunities to encourage Christians behind the Iron Curtain during the beginning of the Cold War. On June 25, 1955, White married Laureate May O'Hara. From 1955 to 1964 he served as a medical missionary with New Tribes Mission. Later he was appointed associate general secretary of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students of Latin America. White emigrated to Canada with his family in 1965 and later completed his residency in psychiatry in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He next filled the post of associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Manitoba and also served locally as pastor of Church of the Way. He wrote 25 books as well as numerous articles and study guides. A much sought-after speaker, he lectured around the world at churches, conferences and leadership events. During his later life, White moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, helping to plant a Vineyard church there (Surrey Vineyard) and becoming involved in the larger Vineyard Christian Fellowship. John White died in 2002, but his written ministry lives on, with over 1.5 million of his books in print.

    I was introduced to this series as a child. Now I have purchased them for my children and the adventure still enthralls me. John White creates an exciting world with a rich history that draws you into several adventures. My children have also started to read it themselves and lend it out to the neighbors as well.

    Highly recommended.

    I was introduced to this book by my older sister, who borrowed it from a friend. Prior to my reading it, my sister had related to me in her own words the events of the first chapter--and left me hanging. Even since then I was hungry to get my hands on it on my own account. ...What is Anthropos like? It is a little bit like Narnia, except there is more of an emphasis on items used as thematic items in the series, and... it seems more human, somehow. They have there own native population of people, or "Regenskind," children of the Regents of there own equivalent of the Garden of Eden... it isn't less wild or less natural than the atmosphere in Narnia, but it is wild in a different way... it's really difficult to explain unless you've experienced it for yourself. Two things I can tell you; the book caught my attention from the start, and some of its images--especially the cross/bridge across the chasm and the thought of wiping one's dirty, slimy, blood-and-forbidden-candy-stained hand of Jesus' (or Gall's) hand and it coming away pure and clean and tingling--keep haunting one beyond the reaches of reading-time. It's not like Tolkien; Tolkien's work is a class of its own. Perhaps there is a touch of Farmer Giles of Ham in it, and there is definitely strong influence (admitted by the author) from Narnia, but Anthropos is its own country... not a great country, not a country that you will necessarily hold up as a future standard for all other worldbuilding that you read, but a country that is worth the time it takes to enter.

    My teacher read this book to my class this year (I'm in eighth grade). I really liked this book. I probably would have enjoyed it more if we didn't have to answer a page of questions after each chapter,do a written and an oral test and draw a title page for the book. It was an exciting book and I'm looking forward to reading the others in the series!!

    I didn't like it. I thought it was confusing and kinda odd in some points. I'm only in the 7th grade but kids opinions matter.
