This is actually the second in a series, however it stands by itself very well. It is a book about a group of friends in the country of Chiril. A peace loving land that has lost its way and its connection to its creator, Wulder. It is now being invaded by another King determined to make Chiril his own. Tipper, a young princess, grows in confidence and maturity as she journeys around the country with her friends to protect a trio of sculptures, the cornerstone of the country and its link to Wulder. Bealomondore, an artist turned warrior, discovers that even though he prefers to create art, he is capable of much more. Tipper and Bealomondore are assisted by two wizards and a Paladin, their guides to both victory over the invading army and to Wulder.
With wizards and dragons, kimen and other creatures, it is a wonderfully crafted fiction book that is suitable for both tweens (and up) as well as adults. It is a Christian-based book and the similarities are easily seen and understood.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
