Read Excerpt

Synopsis:

There is a land of two kingdoms, but only one true King. A living land, where foundations grow in trees and rivers sing and breathe. A dying land, where the darkness of a false prince threatens to swallow everything in its shadow.

Enter Between Two Kingdoms with Tommy, an eternal seven-year-old child of the Great King, as he and his friends accept the challenge of the Good Prince to live as grown men and women in the Lower Kingdom -- where hope is hidden, vision is clouded, and pride twists truth into a beautiful yet deadly deception.

My Take:

Between Two Kingdoms is an enchanting allegory tale that revolves around Tommy and Mary, eternal seven year olds in The Upper Kingdom. They must brave the evil of the Lower Kingdom to save many lives. The story twists and turns, leaving you guessing what will happen next. The story reads like a fairy tale, and yet covers the age old battle of good and evil, and faith conquering all.

I loved the depth of detail, and how detailed is character is. I didn't want this book to end.

4 out of 5 stars.
