Terrestria Chronicles {Review}

image image

King Emmanuel rules over the kingdom of Terrestria ~ a land that was peaceful until Argamor, the King’s chief musician tried to take over the kindgom. Although he was defeated, Argamor contines to stir up trouble over the years, enslaving many of the King’s subjects ~ still hoping to overthrow the King.

The Terrestria Chronicles allegory series was written with a three-fold purpose: to honor Jesus Christ as King, to challenge young readers to love and serve Him, and to teach them to guard their hearts for Him. The focus of the series is always on the King.

Terrestria Chronicles is a seven book series, but each of the books are able to be read independently from the others. The Sword, the Ring, and the Parchment {Book 1} tells the story of young Josiah, a slave to Argamor who is rescued by King Emmanuel and adopted into the Royal Family. Prince Josiah is on journey in The Quest for Seven Castles {Book 2}, but is unprepared for many of the temptations he faces and realizes the importance of following the Book he was given and listening to the voice of the Dove.

My Thoughts

We received the first two books in the series to read and our kids. I haven’t read them out loud to the kids yet because I wanted to screen them first, but they will be ones that I know our children will enjoy. For now they will be read-alouds so that I can monitor a little better some of the content I present to them ~ because the books do not gloss over the darkness and depravity that sin causes.

The recommended age for reading is ages 10 and up and I would definitely agree. At the conclusion of each book there is a glossary section for some of the different terms as well as the ABC’s {Admit, Believe and Confess} of salvation.
