Why this book?
Stephen Lawhead’s Paradise War is the first in a trilogy. This epic fantasy helps you fall into another world that mirrors our own. The story follows Lewis, a geeky college student who discovers this world, and it challenges all he believes to be true. The glory of this reluctant, heart-felt hero has you cheering from the start, while a destructive, insidious evil keeps you on the edge of your seat. I personally love stories with a twist of real history and mythology entwined. It kindles the hope that the world of fantasy may not be that far from our own. Anyone who is a fan of Celtic history, mythology, and legend, will be enthralled with this book and the entire series.
