Series Cont.? Finished
Join Teofil and Anastasia one last time as they struggle to spread the Good News of Deu among friends, and making enemies along the way. Will their faith be strong enough to withstand the followers of Astrabril? Find out in this beautiful, action packed conclusion to the Chiveis Trilogy!
I felt that this was a beautiful, and fitting end to the Chiveis trilogy. I enjoyed seeing how each of the characters developed and faced challenges as they grew in their faith. Even those who didn't call themselves followers of Deu were still changes by His followers, for better or worse. The enemies were strong, smart, and determined. But that only made the heros all the more needed, and they were able to grow because of the challenges.
There was some parts that didn't seem to fit, and the books as a whole had some changes that didn't make sense as they were worded, but over all I enjoyed the story and characters well enough to overlook it and I would definitely recommend it to Christian Fantasy readers!
War and disease have destroyed the modern world. Centuries later, feudal societies have arisen across Europe. No one can remember the ancient religion of Christianity--until an army captain and a farmer's daughter discover the Sacred Writing of the one true God.
As Teo and Ana encounter the forgotten words of the holy book, they realize its message is just what their kingdom needs. Though exiled from their homeland, they join their hearts in a quest to return. But now an ancient pact has united the enemies of the Christian faith into a dark alliance that threatens to consume the known world. Racing to stay one step ahead of their enemies, Teo and Ana must battle heinous villains, stormy seas, and the powers of the underworld itself. As armies begin to mass for a final battle, the odds favor the forces of evil. Can Teo and Ana bring divine truth to Chiveis--or will the Word of God fade from the earth forever?
