Now being a mom of two teenage girls leaves me a little lost when it comes to the boys section in the reading department. But I have two ADORABLE nephews who LOVE to read, so I have to step out of my box and research a little when it comes around birthday time.
And that’s what I’ve been doing most of this morning. I found two great books/series that I just ordered for one of my nephews and thought I would share them with you.
I don’t know about you, but I REALLY struggle in finding good, Christian fiction to allow my girls to read. I’m just as protective about my nephews too, so I wanted to make sure I was getting them some good Christian books.
Here’s what I found :
The author of this book is actually from my old hometown in MD! How cool is that!
When his family moves to Colorado to care for his ailing grandfather, Aidan thinks his life is ruined until he discovers three ancient scrolls in the man’s basement. They tell of a world where the knights of Alleble fight to keep the warriors of Paragory from gaining dominion over the Realm. When Aidan reads the last line of the scrolls, Believe and enter, he is swept into this strange land. His role there is to become the 12th knight of the King’s Elder Guard. Their mission is to travel to the kingdom of Mithegard and convince its sovereign not to sign a treaty with Paragory. Aidan discovers that the people in the Realm, called Glimpses, have doubles that exist in his world. A map of the Realm is provided, as is a character guide with pronunciation key. The concept in this first of a projected trilogy is intriguing and the plot moves along at a steady pace.
I found this book awhile back and LOVED it! They have a great web site that you can check out too!
