“Couldn't put it down. Literally, read the whole book in one sitting.”
ENGAGING CHRISTIAN ADVENTURE FANTASY for MIDDLE GRADE - TEEN
Battles Grim is a continuation of Book One, Tombs of Dross, where our three teens found themselves in a strange world of beasts and men of all shapes and sizes, where their lives were pursued with unrelenting malice, but where friendships were forged and victories won. In Battles Grim, faith meets fear, and courage is tested as they enter the dark night of their soul.
This book is not for the faint of heart. Do not even think of entering Battles Grim without a weapon at your side and dauntless courage simmering in your spirit.
The Lorian Stones Trilogy is a story of strength and courage, endurance and faith, friendship and trust, an endearing adventure for all ages.
Note to Parents:
I wrote the Lorian Stones Trilogy as a Christian alternative for upper Middle Grade & Young Adult 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 Christian principles. Suggested age is 10 – 14, but readers of all ages have been enjoying the series. Some have suggested the series sits between Narnia and The Lord of the Rings.

★★★★★ "There is heartache, adventure, the fight between good and evil, and parts where you rush through trying to find out what happens!”
★★★★★ “I thoroughly enjoyed the book from cover to cover. The author did well in continuing the theme of perseverance throughout, and reinforces great life lessons for all ages.”
★★★★★ “Hope this isn't trite, but it reminds me of Lewis and Tolkien.”
★★★★★ “At the end of the first book, I was chomping at the bit for more. At the end of book 2, I am short of breath… This story ranks up there with the big ones. I can see Peter Jackson directing the film.”
