Boys of Blur (2014)
language
English
3.91 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This is a great story. Like Leapike Ridge was a modern-day retelling of The Odyssey for boys, this is a fast paced retelling of Beowulf in modern-day Florida with high school football, sugar cane harvest, the importance of fathers (whether good or bad), the strong bond of family...

review 1: I really didn't like this book. I found that that characters were all split up, so the book followed several different plot lines that didn't really connect until the end. Due to the abnormally long chapters, every time the book switched characters, I could no longer remember wha...
The Chestnut King (2010)

review 1: Henry is exceptional, we only get to see this because in the third book the world is placed on shoulders. This trilogy sucks you into sympathizing with the characters, you become attached to the story. Henry is a protagonist you can relate to. The first two books nicely set up...
The Dragon's Tooth (2011)
language
English
3.99 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I teach this as the first book in Omnibus 1 secondary. It is brilliant. I think it is a marvelous introduction to ancient literature because it takes many ancient themes and makes a modern myth of them. The name dropping in The Dragon's Tooth would make a complete world histo...
Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God's Spoken World (2009)
language
English

review 1: Insightful, witty, funny and wise, N.D. Wilson demonstrates a worldview so obvious, so plain, so self-apparent that it's no wonder so many educated people miss it. His poetic defense of faith, if indeed it can be called a defense, is no logician's treatise, no philosopher's opus....
Empire of Bones (2013)
language
English
4.37 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Cyrus, Antigone, and the gang are gathering weapons and allies in a race to defend Ashtown (though it may be past saving) and themselves. Radu Bey's power is rising in all its icky glory (the temple of people/bones freaked me out just a bit), and Phoenix has plans of his own. The...
The Drowned Vault (2012)
language
English
4.21 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: My favorite part about this series is that N.D. Wilson has steeped the story in alternate history, though not as heavily in this book. We encounter characters more than strange artifacts in The Drowned Vault; John Smith, and Gilgamesh to name a couple. While I was getting Harry P...

review 1: I have mixed feeling about this book. The plot was very intriguing and so I read the book. However, It took me a while to actually get into the book, and even then I only kept reading to figure out what happened to quench my curiosity. I liked the characters though, such as Cyrus...
Death by Living: Life Is Meant to Be Spent (2013)

review 1: Yeah, wow, this book, where should I begin!? I think I'll have to read it at least one more time to give a really fair review, but let me say for now that I L-O-V-E this book! It is beautifully deep, and deeply beautiful. Here, Nate Wilson (son of Douglas Wilson) wants his reader...
