What I love about C.S Lakin is the fact that in every story she brings the glory of God alive. We see the power of the cross and heaven's gates are revealed in such a way that the story comes to life. The characters in the latest installment of, "The Gates Of Heaven Series", she brings us to Wentwater.
I love how Lakin takes words and shows the power they have. The town of Wentwater is like invisible ink. It is disappearing as fast as it's being penned. Can we undo our words? Just what can words do? They have the power to bring others to Christ or turn them away for ever. Words hold such power. They can bring love or they can cut like a dagger in hate. Words can undo us or make us feel complete.
Lakin brings fantasy alive and puts a twist on Sleeping Beauty. This is the fourth book of the series. Just imagine, there will be seven tales of heaven when the series is complete. This series is for everyone. If you enjoy fantasy you will be captivated by this series. We see superstition at it's highest and what happens with the truth of words. The characters are rich and vibrant.
Lakin has weaved together a wonderful story that takes us to a place where imagination is at it's best and story telling is at it's grandest height. We see good and evil and the best part is we see God prevail and we see victory won.
Whether adult or young adult, you will fall in love with this series. If my children were still young and at home, bedtime would be after a reading of, "The Gates Of Heaven Series". You will be captivated before you hit chapter 2.
