About the Book

Book:  Still Small Voice
Author: Allen Brokken
Genre:Middle Grade Fantasy
Release Date: July 24, 2020
The Still Small Voice Leads the WayStill Small Voice - ebook (1)
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?

Once again, I am amazed that I have been blinded and prejudice to the genre of fantasy. I used to say that I didn't like and wouldn't try it, but thanks to Celebrate Lit and these tours, my eyes have been opened. It still isn't my favorite and I probably still won't pick a fantasy book in all the choices that the library and book store has but authors like Allen Brokken has broken my resolved to not read any at all.

I recommend this series "Towers of Light " it is based on the children's song "This little light of Mine" but I think it should be read in order that they were written. I was kept reading "Still Small Voice" by Allen Brokken because I was really traveling the journey with the children and wanted to know if they kept to the true path and followed the still small voice or if they followed the easy path which so many believers do. I had to keep reading to see who or if either the Knight Protector or the Uncle was evil. I hope you pick up the book and see for yourself. 

Yes, this is for children in the middle grades but I am sixty and am enjoying this series. 

There are even some laughs out loud scenes with a frog and a duck, there is even a kitten named Meow,Meow. 

I received a contemporary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

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.
