Review Ryann Watters and the Shield of Faith by Eric Reinhold

The White Dragon spoke solemnly, “One of us will sacrifice himself to save the others, one of us will save himself to sacrifice the others, and one of us will

deny he is a part of us.”

“Are you saying that there’s a hero, a betrayer, and a denier among us?” Ryann asked.


One year has passed since Ryann Watters and his friends Liddy and Terrell found the King’s sword and returned from the enchanted land of Aeliana. Once again in Mount Dora, Florida, the trio is tasked by the angel Gabriel to locate the shield of faith.

Meanwhile, over four hundred years have passed in Aeliana, and the once-captivating land has been taken over by an evil black unicorn and his dragon-men. Ryann and his friends’ only hope is to join a white unicorn and his group of dissenters, known as “the Chosen.” Together with a white dragon, a Pegasus, and an elf who carries the ancient book of prophecy, they must unravel the mysteries of the magic stones, the Tree of Life, and the Island of Skulls if they hope to save Aeliana.

In this journey of faith, Ryann discovers friends and foes are not always what they appear. To succeed, he must answer the most important question of all:

Who can he trust?

My Review:

This is another good read. I loved book one, I was a big Narnia fan as a child and this series has the same feel. There is alot of references in the book that I recognized from the bible and as reading I could identify different parables and parts of Jesus's life on earth in the story.

I dont think children would get all the references but would see some. How the story played out was interesting. I am sure children would love the story and the way it plays out. I am enjoying the different quests Ryann is on, the sword of truth and now the shield of faith, the next book will be the belt of truth and I cant wait to read the next book.

This is a wonderful series and if you like the Narnia books I am sure you will enjoy this series.
