So, I read this book over Thanksgiving, and may I just say… THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME!!!!! This book was sooooooo good, and I would just like to thank the author, Lauren Lynch, who actually sent me her books for FREE!

This book is super cool, and actually reminds me a lot of the Chronicles of Narnia. The kids go to a different time/world and there are talking animals. The creator sends them there. Doesn’t that sound like Narnia? The book is very kid friendly, and would be a great family book too.

It can get a little weird at times, and has a almost magical feel. It’s not bad magic, and I don’t even think it’s magic. I think it is more of a Christian-fiction thing that we don’t understand, but love anyway.

Over all, I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! And I cannot wait to read the other two in the series. (Also I would just like to say… thank you, thank you sooooo much Lauren!!!)


  • Christian friendly!!!!!
  • Adventure, Godly, and Narnia-like!!!!


  • Maybe a little too much fantasy/magic for some….

Anna is devastated by the fire that left her orphaned, dependent on an uncle she never knew existed and far from the only home she has ever known. Brendan struggles with a life limited by crippling illness and a family torn by the loss of his mother. Tzutz Nik faces an arranged marriage to the prince of a ruthless dynasty in order to unite their fractured kingdoms.

A mysterious invitation gives them each an opportunity to escape their struggles for a while and view their lives from a new perspective. Deep in a remote jungle, amid long-forgotten ancient ruins, they discover the true meaning of sacrifice. In the shadows, a relentless evil presence lurks, threatening to lead them astray. Will they triumph over their adversary or be trapped in his web of lies?
