The Sword of Six Worlds is the latest novel from Matt Mikalatos. When he offered to let me read it, I jumped on the opportunity. You may remember him from My Imaginary Jesus or Night of the Living Dead Christian. This novel is a break from those in that it's a children's novel.
We chose to read it aloud as a family. I am so glad that we did. My daughter enjoyed it immensely and I just reveled in all the allegory for the Christian life. It was well written and just the right length for my little one.
The story is about a young girl, Validus Smith, who discovers that she is a paladin and that her home isn't the only realm. She travels into a world of talking animals with her best friend. The discoveries that she makes about herself and the truths that Mikalatos proclaims through this story are well timed and aptly spoken.
I am also glad to say that this is the first of Mikalatos's books that did not make me cry, though I was tempted at one point.
Another great work by Matt Mikalatos, we're anxiously awaiting his next work in the series!
