LANDON SNOW and the Auctor's Riddle

The Christian Fiction Blog Alliance selection this month is Landon Snow and the Auctor's Riddle.

Randall K Mortenson does an excellent job with his YA (young adult) fantasy novel, weaving a tale reminiscent of an Alice in Wonderland type journey with a boy character rather than a girl.

Landon goes to visit his grandparents who live in a town built long ago by a man who made his money in the fishing industry. The man's legacy to the town was the library he built and stocked with his own book collection. The main collection room was named after the man, the Bartholomew G. Benneford House of Knowledge and Adventure.

Landon's adventure begins when his grandfather is taken to the hospital because of an accident. The young boy begins to wonder if "everything is just an accident?"

This is an amazing Christian adventure that follows Landon through the bookcase in his grandfather's study into a world of visions and dreams as he attempts to solve the riddle.

On Randall Mortenson's website he has a list of his book signing tour. His next book in the series, Landon Snow and the Shadows of Malus Quidam will be out in the spring of 2006.

    Great job on the review Bonnie! You could also say that Landon follows a rock instead of a white rabbit! :-)
