restorer.jpgAbout the Book:

Meet Susan, a modern-day soccer mom who is pulled through a portal into another world, where a nation grappling for its soul waits for a promised Restorer to save their people.

Susan has always longed to do something great for God, but can she fill this role?

While she struggles to adapt to a foreign culture, she tackles an enemy that is poisoning the minds of the people, uncovers a corrupt ruling Council, and learns that God can use even her floundering attempts at service in surprising ways.

My Review: This is another book that received a tremendous amount of buzz. Admittedly, it is pretty different for Christian fiction. I saw it land on several “best of” lists for 2007, and so I was really excited to read it.

Hinck has a strong writing style and the concept of the book is fantastic. It just didn’t live up to all of the hype for me. There was one twist I really liked, but ultimately, I guess the fantasy world she created didn’t appeal to me. That doesn’t mean I wasn’t entertained while reading–I was–it just means that it wasn’t the type of fantasy for me.

If you enjoy fantasy, then I think you may enjoy this one. I still plan to read the rest of the series, but I’m not jumping to it immediately, so take that for what it’s worth. I’ll give The Restorer 8 out of 10 stars.
