The Final Storm review



The Final Storm, written by Wayne Thomas Batson, is an allegorical Christian fantasy fiction with many moral themes and lessons. Aidan Thomas, a mid-teen boy, is in Maryland, planning to visit his friend, Robby, to convince him to ally himself with the one true King. Meanwhile, his other friend, Antoinette, has been captured by Kearn, Robby’s twin in Alleble, but he has been impressed by her skill at the sword. She has been trying to turn him to the True King, but hopes look dim. Aidan gets through to Robby, and soon Robby is also called to come to Alleble. Meanwhile, the dark prince Paragor, has unleashed the full forces of his army to conquer Alleble, King Eliam, the fabled Three Witnesses, and the people’s hope. The story of the three Witnesses is doubted by many, and as Paragor unleashes the also fabled Wyrm Lord and Seven Sleepers, almost all doubts are replaced by hopes.

  1. One of my favorite parts in this book was the way that the teens died. (Yes strange...) But really, the sacrifice they showed, and Aidan set a great example in dying for the king. Loved it!
