The Still Small Voice Leads the Way

Because of their faith, twelve-year-old Lauren and her younger brothers, Aiden and Ethan, prevailed in the battle for the Tower of Light. But their victory did not stop the Dark One. Darkness continues to spread across Zoura’s frontier.

Now, in a vision, Mother tells them to light a second tower in Blooming Glen. Before they can set out on their journey with the Knight Protector, their Uncle arrives with a different set of instructions. He doesn’t trust the Knight Protector or the Mighty Mercenaries and believes the children should go to grandma’s house instead.

Unyielding in his belief, Uncle unknowingly leads the children off their path. And a misguided acolyte follows them. Lurking in the shadows, he strikes at every opportunity as the dark forces prepare to descend.

Lauren, Aiden, and Ethan are Zoura’s last defense. Can they convince their Uncle of the truth—that he must listen to the still small voice—and make it to Blooming Glen before the Dark One’s forces overtake them?

My Review

Brokken, Allen. Still Small Voice. 2020.

Whether you are talking about the real world or the fantasy world portrayed in The Towers of Light series, there is much darkness in the world. Sometimes the Darkness masquerades as Light. Allen Brokken continues the story he started in Light of Mine. Aiden, Ethan and Lauren struggle to fight the Darkness with the knowledge they have from their parents and wise adults who have mentored them. When their parents both disappear and are assumed to have been captured by the Darkness, their Uncle comes to “rescue” them. He is not a follower of the Light and the children struggle with following the “still small voice” and obeying their elders as taught by their parents. The story is well-thought out and will appeal to children. 

Still Small Voice is a fantasy in that there are made-up creatures that talk as well as a make-believe world. The struggle the children face is a real one. Each one of us has to daily make decisions which ultimately lead us down the path of Light or the path of Darkness.

I look forward to reading more in this series. 

Still Small Voice and the other books in The Towers of Light series would be appropriate for a K-12 Christian school library. It would appeal to third through sixth graders. 

I want to thank Celebrate Lit for the complimentary copy of Still Small Voice. This is my honest review.

More from Allen

Still Small Voice is the much anticipated 2nd book in the Towers of Light series.  We will be launching the book with a Celebrate Lit tour on July 24th.  Come on the tour to learn about some of the places author Allen Brokken visited to research the unique frontier setting for the series.  Five of the tour stops are interviews where he shares what he learned at different historical locations as well as his inspiration for the second book which focuses in listing for the Holy Spirit’s still small voice.

As defenders of the light, three children embark on a journey to stop the dark forces invading their land.

Louder than ever before, the message of listening to the holy spirit’s still small voice resonates with an urgency that demands action.

“Still Small Voice by Allen Brokken is an adventure of a lifetime! Filled with mystery, action, family bonds, and a healthy dose of animal friends this second book in the Tower of Light Series is a fantastic continuation of the journey of siblings Lauren, Aiden, and Ethan. Their quest to spread the Light as Darkness creeps across the land is a faith-filled adventure worth joining. ~Katie Clark, author of the Enslaved Series”
