A goodreads winner.

Clear your schedule. Everything else will come secondary once you pick up this book.

Received the book yesterday and have almost completed it. This is one of those novels that caused me to reminisce back to my childhood days and the first time I read Tolkien. Simply enjoying the journey every step of the way.

Twelve year old, Jacob, meets Simon for the first time in his village. There is something inexplicable about Simon that causes Jacob to be lured into his presence daily. Simon quickly becomes a mentor to young Jacob. There is so much more I could add. Suffice it to say, you will just have to read this for yourself to learn more.

Danny Fahey does base some of his characters and their development loosely from the Bible. However, he does this with such finesse that you have to give him the respect due for seizing you on such a magnificent quest.
