On Tour with Prism Book Tours
What if the nine Fruit of the Spirit and the Seven Deadly Sins were locked in a battle for control?
Abandoned as infants, Tovi and her twin brother were raised by an eclectic tribe of warm, kind people in a treehouse village in the valley. After her brother’s sudden disappearance Tovi questions her life and her faith in an invisible King. Ignoring her best friend Silas’ advice, she decides to search for her brother in the kingdom on top of the mountain.
Above the cloud, the Council of Masters receives their orders. Tovi and her brother are the objectives. King Damien has a plan and Tovi is the key. The Council of Masters want her, but will she remain unscathed?
Amidst the glamour of the kingdom above the cloud Tovi is torn between her own dark desires and unanswered questions. It starts with a snake and a crown. When the ring is complete, will her life be over?
Platt, Maggie. Kingdom Above the Cloud. Greenville, SC: Ambassador Books, 2020.
Maggie Platt has crafted a well-written allegory. Kingdom Above the Cloud is a story that shows Silas’ love for his people in much the same way God shows His love for us – even when we rebel against His ways and view ourselves as unlovable. Through the character of Damien, the story also illustrates how Satan tries to deceive and tempt people to follow his ways Platt goes an excellent job with characterization – there are characters to love and characters to hate. There are fantasy elements in this allegory, making it a good book for fantasy lovers. Kingdom Above the Cloud is book one in the Tales from Adia series. I look forward to reading future books.
Kingdom Above the Cloud would be a heat addition to a k-12 Christian school library.
I want to thank Prism Tours for the complimentary e-copy of Kingdom Above the Cloud. This is my honest review.
