Quote-tastic & Immersifying!

In a fantasy world where nothing is as it seems, a child is caught in the battle between good and evil, Heaven and Hell. When I began reading, I was immediately pulled in. The elegant writing sang to my soul. The Biblical references intrigued me. I began highlighting and highlighting. I highlighted, “Aviad [the God figure] always takes care of his own. When He calls you, He does so with good purpose, and He will remain with you to whatever end.” A few pages later I highlighted, “true spiritual freedom involves courage, strength of character, and even sometimes sacrifice.”

As I learned about each character, I desired to know more about them. I felt like their history existed just beyond my reach and, surely, if I just continued reading, all would be revealed. As different situations were presented, I went from being enraptured by elegant writing to amused by humorous writing to nervous about a scene conclusion, settled by certain outcomes, and then sad when specific characters left me.

Although there was so much of this book I loved, I have a few things to mention. Confusion arose when I realized I was almost done with the book! I didn’t understand how it could be almost over. I still had so many questions, so much still needed to happen. And then it was over and I was not presented with a satisfying conclusion. As a reader, be warned, you may want to ensure you have access to book two when you prepare to finish this book. Also Journey to Aviad was not high on the conflict/action/tension/edge of your seat circumstances chart. It was more of a slow/get to know the characters and setting/start of a series book.

All in all, great book! If this is the kind of thing you enjoy reading, it is perfect for you! Enjoy. :)

“Perhaps too, it is innocence that allows the young to hear Aviad more clearly when he calls, and encourages their hearts to follow Him, even when they do not recognize His voice for what it is.”
