Tuesday, June 8th Four unlikely heroes of Major Four.
Our story begins with a young boy named Jason. He has heard the tales of another world with dragons and dismissed them as myths. His world takes a odd twist when his mentor and trainer, Adrian, takes off to find the "lost ones". Yet he's given a task that throws him for a loop, to find someone they have long thought dead. On his own quest he meets Elyssa, a girl with curious abilities, and a close friend. Not far along these two run into Randall, prince to King Preston, and always someone who has been his competitor. As they travel along a bond grows between them and there is no more competition, only the desire to fulfill a singular task. Lastly they are joined by Tibalt, an old man with a strange story to tell, and they find him under even stranger circumstances.
These four journey on to find a mythical gateway between the worlds of Major Four and Dacon in search of the Lost Ones. All of us have a purpose in life, a quest we have set out upon, maybe without knowing it. We are also presented with a choice about this quest. We can choose to walk that path and find the trials and treasures that lay there, or we can refuse the quest and not only deprive ourselves of the many wonders we would ordinarily find, but pass up on the gift of eternal life. That's the stark truth of the matter, but another truth lies right there, hidden under the surface. Even those who make the choice to follow the quest find that each decision has some bearing on how successfully they are.
This is the Christian life. It isn't a myth, as many claim. It isn't all gloomy or religious, nor is it without its struggles. Christianity is a walk with Jesus Christ, and is as successful as we remain close to Him in that walk, but we also make daily choices that aren't according to His will. When we do this we stumble off the path He has laid out for us. The fellowship is damaged. It takes a long time, for many of us, to get back on the right path, renew our fellowship, and accomplish what God has prepared for us. You see, God has prepared for us good works, works that He accomplishes through us if we will only be faithful to Him. And as we are on this quest God brings into our lives other people who are also journeying on the same quest. Some may annoy us a bit, but if we take the time we will find them to be the most treasured. Others will be people that have always been there, but we haven't noticed them. Still others seem to drop out of the sky, that is all of a sudden there they are. We all have our Randalls, our Elyssas and our Tibalts, if we will just allow the Spirit of God to quicken our hearts to see them. These are some of the greatest treasures we can have, as they are those who help encourage and uphold us during the rough times of our quest in life. So if Jesus is your Lord, find those faithful servants that are willing to walk with you, and encourage them. Make your choices for Jesus always.
Be sure to visit Bryan Davis at his sight. The following link will take you right to his Starlighter page: STARLIGHTER You can, of course browse through the rest of his site, which I highly suggest.
Due to problems with obtaining STARLIGHTER we only have 3 people, that I know of doing reviews, and one of them may not be able to post until later in the week. Here are the CFRB members giving reviews

And for a peek inside:
Important: Legally I have to inform you that I received this novel freely for the express purpose of writing a review. I suppose the reason they want me to mention this is so that you will understand that I didn't pay for the book, and my views on how good it is may be somewhat subjective. I can tell you that my reviews found here are both objective and not very traditional. Rarely do I review a book that doesn't deserve to be given the greatest exposure, and while my name may be unfamiliar to many, it can be truthfully said that the whole point for me is to show people that Jesus loves them. If I can do that, if this book does this, then I will gratefully take the opportunity to do so and I make no apologies for it, or for the books I review. CFRB traditionally previews these works before they are even turned over to the rest of the members for posting reviews. We do this to check on a number of things, not the least of which is their outstanding quality.
