Finding a good fiction series for your teenager can be difficult. There are so many options out there, but very few that weave compelling content with deep meaning. I was so excited to recently find a newer series that did just this!
The Jack Staples series by Mark Batterson and Joel N. Clark is fantastic! My son Tyler read the first book in the series and was begging for more! He has now read the first two and can hardly wait for the third which releases in June 2015.
Here is a description of the first book in the series, Jack Staples and the Ring of Time:
"Eleven-year-old Jack's ordinary life is upended when mysterious creatures attack his hometown and he is whisked into a fantastical adventure filled with danger at every turn.
Jack learns that most live in a shadow of the world, their vision blinded by invisible scales that have covered human eyes since the beginning of time. But the Awakened experience the world as it truly is, where war rages between good and evil—and Jack is at the heart of it. The Awakened are searching for The Child of Prophesy who will both save the world and destroy it. When Jack joins in their epic battle he must learn to trust his friends and face his fears if he is to make his life count."
My endorsement: Mark Batterson and Joel N. Clark do a fantastic job of captivating the reader in the Jack Staples series, giving them way more than just a story! There are deep truths and meanings to be discovered along the way. With very few fiction series options to engage our children this is a refreshing find!
