ENGAGING CHRISTIAN MIDDLE GRADE & TEEN ADVENTURE FANTASY
Like all young teens, Isaac, Zac, and Breezy just want some adventure as they explore the backwoods. But when they discover a strange yet beautiful stone pillar, they are soon running for their lives. Ruthlessly hunted in a mysterious world of peculiar people, fearsome creatures, and unnatural forces, they become entwined in an ancient and desperate quest. Together with their new friends, including Nusa—a large lynx-like creature, they courageously battle over land and sea, forcing them into a timeless war where they must confront the immortal evil personified as Lord Sasson. Fighting to stay alive, hoping to return home, they learn who they really are and the sacrifices they must make.
A story of strength and courage, endurance and faith, friendship and trust, Tombs of Dross will ignite the adventurous in both young and old alike.
In Tombs of Dross you’ll join the heart-warming journey as they seek out forbidden mysteries, build deep friendships, learn their awakening powers and who they were born to be. A gripping adventure of trust, perseverance, and hope in the face of an ever-encroaching darkness.
“Hope… and a good weapon… still be better than surrender.” —Alle-Encer
Note to Parents:
I wrote the Lorian Stones Trilogy as a Christian alternative for upper middle grade & teens (including my own children) seeking adventure fantasy without a focus on magic. Swords and bows replace spells and wizardry; perseverance, trust, and hope in the darkest hour prevail as themes throughout. The books are very action based, while conveying moral themes. Intensity level is PG, with suggested age from 10 on up. Readers have suggested the series sits between Narnia and The Lord of the Rings.
★★★★★ “A fantastic adventure for any age reader.”

To do that, they have to meet with the now 99-year-old Luke Noongwook and David Gold’s grandson, Daniel.
The veil is being pulled back, but none of them are prepared for what they’ll find on the other side.

“Bold and forthright writing that would set any heart on fire.”

What if time could talk, to let us know
When we stop, that is when we go
Would you count the days and ponder sore
Or sing God’s praise and know there’s more
The Number of Days explores eternity through the life of a young boy who has a gift with numbers. Christopher sees numbers as people, each digit having gender and personality. Following the tragic death of a young girl who he adores, he questions God’s fairness. With the help of an unlikely hero, he begins to understand that humans were made for eternity.
I love this book and can’t say enough about how rich it is. Growing up in a small town during the 60’s it brought back so many memories and feelings that I hadn’t thought of in years. Though it’s written through the eyes of a young boy, it’s not necessarily a children’s book. It’s deeper than that but still easy enough for a young person; so much like the gospel that way. You’re not going to want to put it down and you’re going to want more. You’ll read through it way too fast but try to go slowly and absorb it. The ending just blew me away!
