Short Story Review: Quest for Leviathan

Blog Tour banner

Today I am privileged to review a new short story by Amanda Tero. 😉

leviathancover“Leviathan took the life of Anath’s father. Anath has spent three years preparing for the voyage that will end the threat of Leviathan. Yet as the Valor launches into the depths of the Mediterranean, an inward quest also begins, taking Anath to depths he is not willing to face.

A short story.” (from Goodreads)

This story was short but very meaningful. It was a little slow to get into at first, but I ended up liking it. 😉 I loved the descriptions of the sea, and Joed bringing to Anath’s attention the miracle that it was was amazing. Kanah was, of course, my favorite character. He was so loyal… 😉  But, oh wow! The description of Leviathan was creepy! I’ve always been curious about this creature in Job, and the author brought it to life very well. In the end, the story had a strong message that no matter what happens in life, God cares for us, His creation.

Just a note, the scene with the Leviathan could get a little intense for very young readers.

Best quote: “I should have died with Father.” Anath looked up, his eyes penetrating the vastness of the sea in front of him. “The sea should have buried me too.” “It should have,” Joed agreed. Anath glanced his way. “But it did not. Have you ever questioned why?”

Altogether, I was blessed by this short story. (And the illustrations were beautiful!)
