Book Review: The Restorer’s Son—Expanded Edition by Sharon Hinck
|Posted by Sarah Elisabeth under Book Reviews|
Hating his new role as Restorer, Kieran fights against the One’s plan until everything he knows is stripped away. Still, he’d rather die than do the simple thing the One asks of him. This path takes him deep into the heart of an enemy kingdom where life and death is in his hands.
With the terror of their son lost in another world, Susan and Mark find themselves caught up once again in the politics and dangers they thought were behind them forever. With constant threats lurking, they search in places they never dared venture before, believe things that seemed impossible.
When the journeys of the main characters crossover each other, it’s not the old friends’ reunion any of them wanted.
I can’t begin to say how much I enjoyed this book. The characters are real, the wit and irony had me laughing out loud, and all the time turning pages to see what happens next. Sharon Hinck is a master storyteller, combined with writing that doesn’t waste a sentence.
Add the spiritual lessons, and what more could you ask for? The scenes in the tower with the mist, the presence of God so close it seems you’re in heaven. Then you walk out and life slams you back to the reality of a broken world. But you’re now empowered to face the battles ahead.
This is fantasy that doesn’t feel like fantasy, another reason I love it and can’t wait for the expanded edition of The Restorer’s Journey.
Well done, Sharon Hinck.

P.S. I wrote this review about two months ago. How true that sentence is about life slamming you down to reality. But there is no where we can go where God is not.
