Blog Tour: Quest for Leviathan by Amanda Tero: Fast-Paced Plot and a Message that Matters


Hey, all! So it looks like Saturday is going to be a general sharing day on Summer Snowflakes, haha. And for this Saturday, I’m doing a blog tour/book release, featuring author Amanda Tero! I reviewed one of her books about a year ago on Verbosity, and let me tell you, that story is splendid. So, without further ado, I will reveal to you the latest from this wonderful author, historical short story Quest for Leviathan.


Review:
The plot of this story is pretty straightforward, yet it's still fast-paced and wisely written. One thing I really like is how it’s woven through with a message that matters; the themes of trust and surrender are clearly written out, but the message works with the story and it doesn’t take over the narrative. The characters are briefly seen, yet they still come alive in their single-word descriptions and the relatability of their journeys. Their quests, their roles, their purpose, their pain, all is clear, and in less than 50 pages. The writing is simple, not ornate or flashy, but it still casts you headlong into the emotion of every scene. The tale is told with a very natural kind of description: it slowly unwraps the story just as it unfolds in front of the characters themselves. You walk through every scene directly in step with Anath, seeing each moment through his mind and his eyes.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5

All-in-all, this is a really quick and enjoyable read, complete with some great lessons about trust and surrender that you can take into your daily life. If you’d like to pick a copy for yourself, you can find it here for $8.99 and add it on Goodreads here.
