As a huge Ted Dekker fan, I about jumped out of my chair when I received the first email promoting his new children’s series! And yes, I was one of the crazies that pre-ordered the entire series.

That being said, as I read Into the Book of Light, I couldn’t help but feel a strong similarity to the Narnia series. It is a unique world with unique trials and quests.

This is a children’s book set in the Circle universe. The theme of the book goes hand in hand (in hand?) with the message in The Forgotten Way and The 49th Mystic books.

A really good allegory for a chapter readers. Theo needs to overcome his fears and learn the truth of who Elyon is and who he is. It depicts the journey well and the characters act believably. The Roush were fun and charming characters and I look forward to seeing more of them. Theo did agree to go on the quest a little too easily without questioning it which was a bit unbelievable. I look forward to sharing this book with my nephews and niece when they are able to read it.

It was fun to get to know Theo Dunnery. The joy spilled from the pages when he met Elyon. And his newfound courage when he again met the Shataiki inspired me. This book was written for children, but it's a quick read people of all ages will enjoy. I look forward to reading the other three books in The Dream Traveler's Quest.
