The Sword Of The Wormling

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
Owen was scanning the area for a key when he felt a hand on his shoulder. He jumped and turned, holding his breath, unable to speak, facing the dim outline of a face. “So you really are the Wormling then.”

Book: The Sword of the Wormling by Jerry B. Jenkins and Chris Fabry, Tyndale House
Publishers, 2007
Genre: Fantasy/Allegory
Target Audience: Boys 12-18
Subjects: perseverance, trust, faith
Summary: Owen may have acknowledged his identity as the wormling and with the helper of the mucker, broke through to the lowlands, but the journey and battle have only just begun. The dragon is determined to destroy him before he finds the King’s son and the very people he has been sent to help are resistant to him. He can’t even truly begin his search for the King’s son until he undergoes an initiation ceremony – one that only two people can perform – one who is dead and the other who is exiled to a land impossible to survive the journey to.
Notes: This, the second book in the Wormling series, continues the story of Owen Reeder as he reads and tries to understand and apply the words of the Book of the King as he undergoes a search for the one who can save both worlds from the evil dragon determined to rule them. It is an allegory with the King and Book of the King – much of which resembles Scripture. The lessons challenge one to closely examine the heart and stay faithful even in times of despair and hopelessness.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Ephesians 6:17 – Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
