Adrian Essigmann has released another exciting Novel for the C-3 Saga and it another fun and exciting ride right as the reader jumps back into the world of C-3. The writer continues to improve upon the world with this novel, expanding certain motifs and background concerning his world and this helps to further flesh out truly how expansive his narrative is. It is nice to be able to keep coming back to the C-3 Saga and continue to see new thing in the world, that feel like they have been there all along, although we have just now see them. Further to have other things just mentioned and a sense of wanting to see more them. It helps to continue to make the world into something has a touch of realism.
The writer also continues to tackle spiritual issues with a insight and way of writing that truly brings out the things with which believers constantly deal with in real life and perhaps do not all to often think about it. He does in a way that doesn't make this a simple devotional reading, nor a stuffy tome of spiritual things which one ought to avoid, but all within the context of his novel, with an great narrative. It seems that character growth is a driving factor of the spiritual issues which are discussed. Therefore it makes the results good or ill of decisions and how they bear with spiritual issues easier for the reader to connect with. And the issues are not simply rehashed each novel, but there is a sense which some old may be revisited, but we glimpse and tackle new ones, but again in a which fells rather natural.
One quickly connects again with the various characters of the series and it was nice to see Two actually out of his coma and working with his team, and in truth the various interactions of how different his team was and how different he was. The novel helped to really bring that out.
I would honestly recommend this book (this series as whole) for someone who isn't seeking the typical Christian novel, or for the parent who wants their kids to be reading and reading something that they could feel comfortable with. The series continues to get better with each book release, and so if whether your a new fan or a continuing C-3 fan I'd pick this up....more
The Magnificent Six is another fine addition to the C-3 Saga and one which tries to tackle many different theological problems which faces the Church.The Magnificent Six is another fine addition to the C-3 Saga and one which tries to tackle many different theological problems which faces the Church. This book, though shorter than the previous volumes in the series is still a must read and the Adrian Essigmann really does a fine job especially as tries to portray different views points, a major point of this novel's story. The Church is filled with differences of opinions and we see that clearly reflected in the Alliance and Cs in this novel. Some of more striking differences are noted, explained and talked about in an easy to understood manner. Not every point in made that either side would make, but enough for the gists and hopefully enough for those truly interested to seek other resources.
The author does a great job at handling many of these issues in his tale all the while continuing to fill the book with action pack sequences. If there is one thing the writer does well, its writing exciting scenes and he continues to do here. The action is in many ways different from previous volumes, but it makes sense in context and gives the reader a breath of fresh air. There were some threads in the story which would have been nice to have been drawn out further, but hopefully the writer will do so in the coming novels.
If there is one thing the writer can do is build a world that is deep. With each novel we see more of his world unpack and we see more of the thought and detailed put into the world of C-3. While other novels have helped to really establish the DARK, this novel really in different ways help to establish LIGHT Kingdoms in a new light, as well as introduce new ones only briefly hinted at. Again it will be interesting to see what the author does in future novels.
It is a work, however that I would suggest reading the previous volumes too, however the writer does provide some information of what has gone on in previous books, to hopefully help with that bridge. But even if one does a feel a little lost in the beginning they should give this work a try.
All in all, The Magnificent Six truly is a a great work. It is one which I would recommend to those wanting to read a novel from a Christian perspective, but also something different from what is usually found in the "Christian section." It isn't your typical Christian allegory, but it is still a great work....more
