If it’s spunk you want, it’s spunk you’ll get, especially since we might have to move Heaven and two or three earths to find him!

Book: Eternity's Edge (Echoes from the Edge) by Bryan Davis, Zondervan Publishers 2008 (republished 2011)

Genre: Science Fiction
Subjects: Loss, Good vs. Evil, Purity, Friendship, Love
Summary: Armed with the knowledge that his parents are actually still alive, Nathan along with Kelly and friends from all three earths set out to try and find and rescue them. The journey is filled with both danger and tragedy as Mictar pursues them. If that wasn’t hard enough, the one person his dad said he could trust keeps appearing and challenging not only Nathan’s actions, but his very motives! He asks Nathan to do the unthinkable, putting the fate of the world ahead of the fate of Nathan’s loved ones. Nathan has to dig deep into his heart to find courage and the true meaning of love.
Notes: This is the second in the Echoes From The Edge trilogy. It’s a science fiction book about different dimensions/time travel/alternate realities. The idea is that the characters have found a way to visit different dimensions and interact with themselves in those different dimensions. As in the first book, the spiritual value comes in the realistic fiction part, the interactions between the teenagers. Nathan struggles to come to grips with his parents’ death and fights to cling to the values they’ve taught him. When Kelly, an attractive girl who is used to using her body to get the attention of boys, enters his world he must learn what love really looks like and how to show love to someone from a worldview so vastly different than his own. In this second book, Nathan’s faith and definition of love gets challenged even further. It’s no longer enough to rely on what his dad has taught him. He is forced to decide for himself what is right and wrong.
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

2 Timothy 1:7 – For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Thank you to Zondervan for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
