Ryann Watters And The King's Sword

Friday, July 31, 2015
Ryann and Liddy beamed with delight. They were experiencing a fantasy, previously lived out only through adventure books.

Genre: Allegory
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 11-16
Subjects: Trust in God, Pride, Faith,
Summary: It’s a fairy tale, but a real one! Ryann, Liddy and Terell get the experience most only read about. It begins when the angel Gabriel shows up in Ryann’s bedroom one night and commissions him with the task of finding the King’s sword. Soon the three children are taking trips to the world of Aeliana where they meet talking animals and dragons and hear the Word speak. The problem is that they are not the only ones given a commission. A fallen angel has appeared to an unhappy boy in their class and given him the task of stopping Ryann, Liddy and Terell. Drake has never hesitated to use his size to bully anyone before and he sees no reason to start now. Intimidation and threats are what he specializes in. And when granted special powers by the dark one, he’s even more dangerous than before. Ryann has been given gifts of power as well though. The question will be who is more powerful: those serving the Word or those serving the fallen rebels?
Notes: Ryann Watters And The King’s Sword is the first in the Annals of Aeliana series. The series is an allegory with the idea that there is another world out there and God loves the beings of that world and is launching a rescue plan for them too. He is using people from our world to help the other world. The books are packed full of Scripture. It’s through studying God’s Word that Ryann figures out answers to his questions, grows in knowledge and understanding and solves the mystery of where the armor is hidden. In this first book it gives a picture of what the Garden of Eden could have been like before the fall of man and what consequences the fall could have had on the world.

Hebrews 4:12 – For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
John 1:1-3 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
