About the Book:
This is another entertaining adventure in the land of fairies, unicorns, and heroes and villains. Augustine is a likable hero. His understanding of his identity is completely uprooted with disturbing news. His character is contrasted with Prince Oswald, an arrogant man who thinks way too highly of himself. They, along with Lina, battle foes as they traverse dangerous territory. Thankfully, a unicorn with a healing tongue follows them
There are several issues explored in this novel. The major one is identity. How is identity founded in heritage and what happens if that foundation crumbles? Does God still love you if you are a result of a sinful relationship? Another issue is revenge. Should the sons of the king be held responsible for his horrible actions?
The religious aspect of the novel is subtle. There are references to historical aspects of the church and some people, such as Desert Fathers and activities of spirituality, such being a hermit and sitting on top of a pole for years.
This is an entertaining novel for readers who like heroic adventures in a make believe world.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
