Jack Staples And The City Of Shadows By Mark Batterson And Joel N. Clark Book Review + #Giveaway 6/15 US


Jack and Alexia find themselves even deeper in the battle between the Author and Accuser. Though beginning to discover what it means to be the chosen ones, they each face a harrowing test. For Jack it is a question of trust, and for Alexia, a question of loyalty.But when Alexia is captured and with Jack seeking the Forbidden Garden, the prophecy that they will both destroy and save the world seems far from coming true.
It's powerful allegorical fantasy that combines the spirit of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien with the flavor of today's most popular Y.A. fiction.

I started reading young and by the time I was in highschool, I can finish reading 2 novels in 1 day. I loved reading books when I was younger and I'd like it if my daughters would love reading books as much as I did. When I received the Jack Staples and the City of Shadows, I know that my daughters are too young to read it, they're 4 and 6, but I read it to them. I read them 1 to 2 chapters every night until we finished reading the book.

The book Jack Staples and the City of Shadows has a very nice story and is age appropriate. I like that my daughters were so intent on listening to me when I read them this book. This took us to an adventure every night and my daughters loved the action and characters in the book. I haven't read the first book in this Trilogy yet but it's easy to follow the story just by reading this second book.

I love how this book is filled with action and adventure and taught my daughters about friendship, faith and being brave. My daughters also were able to understand what's good and bad from this book. This book is for children ages 8 to 12 but can be read to younger children as well.
