    2. C.S Lakin took me on a grand adventure with her latest release, The Land of Darkness, and one I m not soon to forget This author has a unique skill of weaving both fairy Tale and spiritual themes seamlessly together into a patchwork of drama, suspense, emotion, and morality that cloaks the reader in a warm, enjoyable read I loved the Scriptural allegories of Good vs Evil, the evil shadow that steals men s souls, the invisible bridge that spans eternity, the sacrifice of the Son, the blindness of [...]

    3. Good story, but I didn t like it as much as the first two, which I thought were spectacular It was partly because I didn t love the characters Callen got on my nerves sometimes Jadiel was good, but perhaps she wasn t distinctive enough I don t know I most value character types I haven t met before I thought the villainous, abusive Huldah was dwelt on a little too much, though fortunately by the middle of the book and beyond she has far fewer scenes And there was an element of creepiness woven th [...]

    6. To start with, I greatly enjoyed this book, although, I did have some problems with it overall This is a fairy tale, in that, it has many of the troupes of classic literature, Biblical themes, and classic archetypes This made the book feel very familiar and a nice romp into nostalgia, especially because it reminded me of some of my childhood favorites such as The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings This story chronicles the story of Jadiel, a 12 year old who has been sent on an imposs [...]

    7. I will never forget the day I opened the package and saw the book, A Map Across Time my thought, WHY did I agree to read a fairy tale I am so thankful I did Because once again this author allows me to escape in The Land of Darkness, a wonderful tale of good versus evil, complete with an evil step mother and her ugly daughters However, the author doesn t give you a Cinderella story There are very interesting twists to the story that weaves a unique and thoughtful tale And this time I got the alle [...]

    12. I just didn t really get into this one It is the 3rd book in the series and so I may have missed quite a bit from the first two I really don t know it felt like it was a stand alone with just a hint here and there that there might have been to the story It has so much magic in it that I just felt annoyed Yes, annoyed There is a difference, to me, between God s wonderful creations and the magic that He holds as compared to potions, spells and magic mirrors To try to incorporate one into the othe [...]
