Review Text

  • By Catriona Moore on 24 February 2006

    “Adventure always begins with the unexpected...” as Aidan Thomas came to realise when he discovered the door within. Aidan was the shy, fat kid with few friends at school, until Robby came along. Robby took him under his wing and life at school changed for Aidan. That I until his wheelchair-bound grandfather took a turn for the worst and his family relocate to another state. Left without any friends, as Robby went off to summer camp, Aidan is alone in the house with only his grandfather for company.Suddenly transport to the world of Glimpses, King Alleble and the evil Lord Paragor with their knights, castles, unicorns and dragons this is well and truly a work of fantasy. It is at this point I do have to question the Amazon listing under Religion and Spirituality. As with any children’s fantasy worth its salt there is an underlying message of good versus evil and good prevailing through the darkest of times.I can see this book appealing to children and adults alike that enjoy the works of such authors as Philip Pullman, Neil Gaiman and Marcus Sedgwick. It is the perfect introduction for a trilogy, it grabs you and engages you from the start and by the end you are begging for the second book of the trilogy. We haven’t seen the last of Aidan or Gwenne. And I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Robby either…

    We spend a lot of time looking for books to read with our children. There is so much out there that almost drags them into adulthood prematurely with their themes. There is so much out there that is spiritually unhelpful if you are a Christian family, which we are. Just to make that clear. We saw this is our local book shop and bought the first volume, not really knowing much about the set at all. I must confess that it took a little time for me personally to get into this book, the initial scene setting was quite slow and clumsy. However once Aidan had made it through into the other realm and his adventures with the knights of Alleble had begun the book really began to flow. I loved the author's use of prose. There were times when his descriptions stopped me in my tracks and I had to read them again, they were so magical. The characters are beautifully written, we particularly liked Falon. There were moments when I had to stop reading to control my emotions which threatened to spill over either with joy or sadness. In short I loved this book and the blatant and clear Christian theme was a winner too for us. People have compared it to LOTR and the Narnia series. I think that is fair. This was a gripping yarn, full of peril and menace with full rounded characters and driving narration, even a little bit of romance. My children are 8 and 10 years and the book has really drawn them in. We are onto book two now and this has started far better than the first, primarily because all the groundwork has already been laid and the characters are known. An excellent find which I can recommend not just as a work of Christian fiction, but as an excellent example of fantasy writing per se.

    It's a good story - young lad gets pulled into another world and ends up as a knight in a war - but the Christian references get in the way of the story for me. It could have been a much better book if the author hadn't tried to shoehorn elements of the Christian story into the book.Also, there were far too many exclamation marks at the ends of sentences for my liking - it's OK in speech but surely not in description? And why were so many words italicised? Words like portcullis which really don't need italics...Overall, I'd read it again, and I'd like to read the others in the trilogy, but it's not one of the better fantasy books out there.

    The first chapter throws you straight into an action sequence, which is great and gets the interest, but left me feeling like I'd started half way through the book. There are several parts of the book, where I identified with the main character, and the things he was experiencing. The author blends a variety of fantasy cliches, but somehow they come out fresh and different, with 2 + 2 being greater than 4.The true test of a first book, or part 1 of a trilogy, is will I go back for more? and the answer is yes, so I call this a good first book, and look forward to the rest.

    It took me a long time to get into the book. I did not find myself sympathising with the protagonist (Aidan, the ordinary lad who has an extraordinary adventure) until about half way through. The story has some very good ideas, but the narrative does not hold one breathless with anticipation. The created world's internal laws offer very little challenge - many things seem too easy (but at least this applies to both the good guys and the bad guys, unlike some books I've tried to read).Overall, though, an enjoyable read.

    This book and series are amazing. They may be reallly christian based but the storylines are as good as Lord of the Rings. The battle sequences are thrilling and all the charactors will stay with you forever. It made me want to live Alleble! The quotes about adventure are really inspiring and good to know. I would reccomend this to anyone! Seriously a must read.
