John Edgell is a masterful story-teller with a superb gift of language and creative genius. He places you into his imaginary worlds where all things are possible… if you just believe!
Excellent story. I thought I had all the characters figured out, but I was wrong. It kept me on my toes.
This is a well-written group of stories and I enjoyed them immensely. They’re a nice break from the gore and martial arts that seem to be the rage. Just enough evil and magic to set the stage and always a hero to save the day.
Each With Great Meaning
This is a very compelling group of stories, each with great meaning. I love the way the author is able to blend the Sci-Fi intrigue and adventures in with a solid message of faith and hope, even when facing the worst of adversities. It is refreshing to find an author that does not include sex and violence, and thus, making this book suitable for family reading.
Fantasy At It’s Finest!
All of the short stories found in Wanzalara’s Cottage are truly fun to read. The fairy tale feeling will have you lost in imagination. Each story closely strikes home in regards to Salvation and the depths in which God will go for the broken. The stories stir curiosity while simultaneously inspiring hope. Spoiler; these stories will tug on your heart strings, in the best way.
Showed Me God’s Great Love for the Fallen
Throughout each of the three interconnected stories contained in Wanzalara’s Cottage runs the theme of redemption. This book is a must read for anyone who has ever been, or knows of someone who ever was abused ….especially sexually. The author’s treatment of such a sensitive subject is true to his style as a “gentleman author,” and uses no coarse language or vulgar description in the story. It is not for the prurient-minded; but rather for someone who is seeking help in overcoming.
In addition, the book showed me God’s great love for the fallen….even those who have fallen so far it would seem impossible to be rescued. Love, faith, and courage against all odds. This book gave me hope that God will see me through my own life challenges.
I definitely give it 5 stars!
