Had the potential to be the best of the Sword of Lyric series, but not as well developed. Perhaps it was rushed to print.
This book was a wonderful conclusion to an amazing trilogy. It wasn't my favorite book out of the three (No Kieran!), but it was still great at tying up the story. I loved how the Rhusicans got some humanity and depth like the Hazorites in the last book. I don't like purely evil characters because there's usually more to it than that. That situation was a great depiction of just doing what God tells you to do even if you do not get to see the effects of His influence in their lives. Long after S ...more

Still spinning from the shock of arc enemies loose in their own world, Mark, Susan and Jake try to come to terms with their recent experiences, and more importantly, the near future.

Nothing prepares them for the horrors that lay ahead. Forced back into another world, Susan faces mental torture that’s impossible to comprehend, yet feels frighteningly familiar. Jake faces dragons from his past, and learns real life challenges in the world of Lyric are nothing like the fairy tales of glory he once

The Restorer’s Journey
By Sharon Hinck

Reviewed by Lacy J. Williams for

At the end of The Restorer’s Son, Susan, Marc and Jake Mitchell have just returned to their home from Lyric, following closely on the heels of Cameron and Media who have somehow managed to slip through the portal unnoticed.

The Restorer’s Journey opens a few weeks later, with Susan watching over her shoulder for the bad guys that haven’t yet shown their faces. Unfortunately for her, they do show up
The third one in the series: I didn't think things could be worse in Lyric, but they are! And that makes it wonderful for Hinck's readers as they watch the characters squirm!

Now Susan and Mark's son is the Restorer---and nothing is going right. Anything he does is wrong. Nor can Mark come to the rescue: he's stuck in our world, and the gate won't open for him!

Nor is it well for Susan, captured by dreadful people who play with minds, and torture their prisoners. How is she going to get through
I was a little disappointed because my favourite characters didn't appear in it at all, but overall it was a really good finish to this series. I only wish there were more....

AWESOME - the complete series are SO worth reading!
A new Restorer bursts onto the scene without friend or ally in the wrap-up of this adventurous trilogy. The world of Lyric is much changed since we last visited, deceived by Cameron and the return of the Rhusicans. What is truth? Whether hiding from the corrupted king's men, fighting off enemy nations or trusting God for survival in a prison cell, our much-loved characters face their own weaknesses and the overwhelming love and leading of God no matter the circumstances.
Redwallcrazy- My God is Healer, Awesome in Power!
This one was really good too, and I hope that Sharon makes more books in this series. I was a tad=bit frusterated with it because it didn't have my favoritest character, but other than that it was wonderful, and I couldn't stop reading it.
Better than #2 in the series, continues the adventures of a suburban U.S. family caught up the conflicts of an alternative universe. Not as schmaltzy as most Christian fiction.

Sharon Hinck is an amazing writer and truth rings through her writing. Once again another amazing chapter in the life of the Restorers.

Book 3, and then it was over ... I could have read more this is a great series I strongly recommend it if you can find it!!!
I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but the latter two books did not grip me as the first one did.
Good final book of the series. Love the characters.
