Hunter Brown And The Eye Of Ends

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Before I knew it, I was dreaming of sand frogs, Shadow creatures and Boojum spit… a strange combination by anyone’s standards. Little did I know, before my dreams ended, things would get a lot stranger.

Book: Hunter Brown And The Eye Of Ends by The Miller Brothers, Warner Press, 2011
Hunter Brown and the Eye of Ends (Codebearers) 
Genre: Fantasy/Allegory
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 12-18
Subjects: Relationships with family, trust in God, love, sacrifice
Summary: Can the Author really be trusted? That’s the ultimate question Hunter has to wrestle with. The future has been seen and it doesn’t look too good! Someone has created a way to avoid facing the future, a security for themselves. While figuring out what to do, Hunter’s mother and sister get captured, his friends get captured, the bad guys look like good guys, the good guys look like bad guys, motorcycles go through walls, giant spiders pursue, information about his father gets discovered and Hunter risks death multiple times! In the end, Hunter may have to be willing to give up everything to save what he loves.
Notes: This book wrestles hard with how much we can trust God! Multiple characters see what is supposed to be the future and when it looks as though the Author will let them do, some abandon their faith and turn to their own security. Some hold on all the more tightly to their faith recognizing the futility of life without God. It truly shows the characters wrestling with it, especially when someone close to them makes the opposite choice. This is the 3rd in the Codebearers Series.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

1 Corinthians 2:9 – However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”
