Chosen Ones

by Alister McGrath

The Aedyn Chronicles
Book One

Pam Mettler of Zondervan has offered a
of, Chosen Ones, to five of my readers.

About The Book:

From the Zondervan Website:
The land of Aedyn has been overtaken by mysterious lords who trust only in their own reason. Two children called from our world have the power to lead the revolution, but will they find the courage to face their own destiny?

About The Author:

From the Zondervan Website:

McGrath, a longtime professor at Oxford University, now holds the Chair in theology, ministry, and education at the University of London. He is the author of several books on theology and history.

My Thoughts:
This Zonderkids fantasy novel is very well written, has compelling characters and enough peril in the plot to keep the pages turning.  I’ve not finished it yet but I am quite enjoying it.  As a certified reading teacher I can tell you that this would be a favored book in a fantasy lover’s library.  An adult reader will find many similarities between the Aedyn Chronicles and the Chronicles of Narnia, but despite sharing many parallels the stories are different.  Moreover, Chosen Ones is written in a fresh, modern voice which will quickly engage it’s reader.
