Fire From The Earth (book review)
This is the fourth book in a series by Samuel Schiller following the life of Evan Macketh. In the previous book Evan, along with others, were able to defeat the goblin armies.
Evan is now being called by God to leave his hometown and Aine, whom he loves, to go to Nezedsahr, a sinful, Moloch serving city. He begins the journey with Julian, the Holy Spirit of God in the form of a bird.
Bronwyn, a girl with a bad reputation gets Evan and a friend Evard captured and put into slavery. She regrets it but cannot appear to stop it. Julian is injured and Bronwyn feels responsible and takes care of him and must set out for Nezedsahr.
None of the characters understand why there are where they are but begin to see God’s hand bringing all things together. The leader of Nezedsahr dies and his son takes over, who does not appreciate the ways of Moloch, but does not know how to change. Battles against the goblins and the priests of Moloch rise up.
As with the other books, this book has a lot of fighting occurring throughout it. One can see God’s hand behind the scenes setting the characters into position to bring about His will. Lives are changed and some will become followers of Iosa (Jesus).
Part of this story parallels the story to a point of Joseph in the Bible. God using slavery to bring about His good in the end. The gospel message is made very clear and some become believers.
I highly recommend this book, though it is recommended to read the first three in this series to fully understand who the characters are and what is occurring in this one. It is a simple, young adult style of reading with some extreme violence, but flows very well. One thing good is that there is no bad language and no bad scenes described outside of the fighting.
