"I found this book to be wonderfully written and reminiscent of C S Lewis. I actually was surprised and delighted at the scientific explanations throughout this fictional book that again took me back to The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. This was more of a modern day approach to that styling and this author has created a beautiful and entertaining fantasy world that is nice to get lost in."

"Great read, I highly recommend it! A beautiful and well thought out blend of Creation truths and science. This is a great book for all ages (read it with my wife), especially teenagers who are seeking the truth. Engaging and fun, the characters and their challenges in faith speak fully for our need to trust the one true GOD and Christ's finished work on the cross."

In order to survive this otherworldly experience, Seth and Melissa must work together for the first time in their lives. The obstacles that come their way are numerous and challenging, but they have help throughout their adventure from newfound friends, including the loyal, kind-hearted red fox, and a benevolent owl named Adriel.

This extraordinary journey could reconcile their doubts about the truth of the Bible. But most importantly, Melissa and Seth will discover that faith is a precious gift, and without it, they may never get back home.

This is a beautifully written novel that very uniquely and cleverly interweaves science and Biblical truth. I love it's CS Lewis-like allegorical fantasy which made it exciting. This book is about Seth and Melissa, the two main characters and the perils they face that require hard choices along the way in their journey and quest for truth and the existence of God. Seth is the harder to please skeptic with his desire to prove everything through science and Melissa wants to know more about faith. I also love how the endearing animals, all with the their own quirky personalities, like the owl, fox, and turtle, are integrated throughout the story to help Seth and Melissa in their adventure and my favorite, though I had a couple, was especially Fox. Her amazing strength for such a gentle and sweet creature was so inspiring to me and made me want to be the same! This book does such a wonderful job of dealing with the gamut of questions, feelings, fears, struggles that we all have at some point in our lives that it really can be equally for the skeptic or a mature Believer in Christ. I only wish a couple of the characters were in the book more.... Each chapter kept my attention and by the time it got to the end I couldn't believe it had ended! I SO wanted more! I most definitely recommend this book as it's now one of my all time favorites.
