If you love C.S. Lewis' Narnia series, then you are going to love The Gates of Heaven Series by C.S. Lakin. I had the privilege of reading the first book in this series, The Wolf of Tebron, and I was immiediately drawn in.
You will fall in love with the characters in this book as you meet each one. As you begin to read, you will not want to put this book down.
I am not going to share the inside of the book because any part of it will give it away. All I can tell you is YOU will want this book--trust me!
About the book:
A young blacksmith must undertake a perilous journey to the four ends of the world to rescue his wife, who is held captive by the Moon. Along the way, he befriends a powerful wolf who encourages, protects, and ultimately sacrifices his life to save his human friend. A stirring allegory of God's love in classic fairy tale tradition.
Following in the footsteps of fantasy greats like J. K. Rowling, C. S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien, C. S. Lakin tackles the ancient struggle of good versus evil in her multi-part “Gates of Heaven” series. The first installment, The Wolf of Tebron, follows a young blacksmith’s journey to rescue his wife who is held captive by evil forces. During his travels, Joran befriends a powerful wolf who encourages, protects, and sacrifices his life to save his human friend. An allegory of God’s unconditional love, The Wolf of Tebron features quotes from the Bible and famous thinkers such as G. K. Chesterton, and relies on biblical messages of hope, faith, and redemption to drive the stories and characters.
