Summary: It’s not just a dream! They’re not going crazy! It’s real! For his entire life David has seen visions of Aurora. Having imaginary friends is common for children, but David really saw her. All of her life, Aurora saw visions of David. And now as she frantically flees from the evil behind her, out of nowhere, David reaches out, and pulls her to safety – out of her world and into his! As they start talking and putting pieces together, they learn that they are part of a prophecy – they are destined to battle together against the evil one and defeat him through sacrifice.
Notes: It’s somewhat a typical fantasy story with the characters going on an adventure to try to defeat the evil being and having special powers to help conquer the evil. It has some unique elements though. The idea of the characters sort of seeing visions of each other all through their entire lives seems a bit different. It adds a lot to the story. Also, rather than an ordinary evil being, they are actually going up against satan himself and defeating him in one world strengths his power in the other world. The spiritual elements are strong and constant as both characters are strong believers in the Lord. The Lord even appears to them a couple of times in visions with special messages for them. The one warning I would give on this book is that the author gets pretty descriptive of the characters’ romance, particularly on their honeymoon. Other than that, I would recommend it, especially to those seeking an enjoyable story rather than suspense.
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Ephesians 6:10-13 – Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
