A sick Mom, an obsessed junior alchemist, wee people, giants and magic combine in a hunt for treasured stones.
Morgan Izaak is trying to follow in his father’s footsteps, striving to save his mother from dying. His friend, Eny, finds her self embroiled in her own mystic journey. The book ties together typical fantasy components with Christian overtones. I found it a bit confusing.
I didn’t get wrapped in the characters. I felt all the ingredients were there but they just didn’t captivate me. I don’t know if it is my mood or the book so take my lack of enthusiasm with a grain of salt. It is worth reading and even redeeming in some ways and most definitely faith affirming.
