This is a book review written by my son. It has been published with his permission.
Still Small Voice is a middle-grade Christian fantasy novel by Allen Brokken. The story includes many unique elements, such as sacred animals with special gifts and physical forms of good and evil.
Lauren, Aiden, and Ethan are tasked with lighting the Towers of Light and freeing their parents from the Darkness. They try to convince their uncle to take them to Blooming Glen so they can light the Tower of Light. However, their uncle wants to take them to their grandmother’s house and unknowingly leads them off their path. Their enemies prepare traps for them along the way and almost succeed in capturing them.
I enjoyed Still Small Voice. The story is told from multiple points of view, which gave me a better picture of what was going on. There was always something interesting happening. The story did end on a bit of a cliffhangercliff hanger, but that made me want to read more.
I recommend Still Small Voice to anyone who enjoys reading fantasy adventure novels with faith-based messages.
Still Small Voice is available on Amazon.
About Still Small Voice
As defenders of the light, Lauren, Aiden and Ethan take up the Armor of God and embark on a journey to stop the dark forces invading their land.
Because of their faith, twelve-year-old Lauren and her younger brothers, Aiden and Ethan, prevailed in the battle for the Tower of Light. But their victory did not stop the Dark One. Darkness continues to spread across Zoura’s frontier.
Now, in a vision, Mother tells them to light a second tower in Blooming Glen. Before they can set out on their journey with the Knight Protector, their Uncle arrives with a different set of instructions. He doesn’t trust the Knight Protector or the Mighty Mercenaries and believes the children should go to grandma’s house instead.
Unyielding in his belief, Uncle unknowingly leads the children off their path. And a misguided acolyte follows them. Lurking in the shadows, he strikes at every opportunity as the dark forces prepare to descend.
Lauren, Aiden, and Ethan are Zoura’s last defense. Can they convince their Uncle of the truth—that he must listen to the still small voice—and make it to Blooming Glen before the Dark One’s forces overtake them?
Fans of Little House on the Prairie will feel at home in the series’ classic frontier setting, and the sincerity of the children’s love for one another and desire to do the right thing will bring a smile to readers and listeners of all ages.
