In a world filled with magic, everything exists in perfect harmony. There is peace, and the kingdoms are flourishing. However, the Dwarf Kingdom is becoming a threat. The Dwarf King, together with his wife, has a plan to ensure only the royals possess magic. Failure to stop this nefarious plan may lead to the decimation of both flora and fauna. Further, the residents of neighboring villages and kingdoms will not be spared. The Staff of Wisdom has selected Noah, an apprentice of the chief of Antalus, to face and defeat the evil king.

Will Noah’s parents allow their son to combat the evil king and his forces? What does Noah require for this mission? Will he pass all the tests? Can he trust anyone?

Noah’s Quest is about an ordinary child doing extraordinary things. Noah’s curiosity consistently scores the winning goal, triumphing the desire to merely sit and wait. However, like in every child, doubting accompanies every rash decision. Why did I do it? What will happen to me now?

One of the fascinating aspects about the book is children can learn several virtues while experiencing adventures of a lifetime in a fantasy world. They interact with magical creatures such as flying unicorns, dragons, and Pegasus. What is more effective than letting the imagination of children run wild while inculcating lessons? On top of all this, the descriptions were so vivid that one’s senses are immediately captured.

What I liked most about the book is that it seeks to teach children critical values. The virtues are not only to be learned, but also practiced and cultivated from a young age. Noah exemplifies each one of them. From demonstrating compassion to empathy, he shows that helping others results in great satisfaction in life. Additionally, I am glad the book sufficiently recognizes and appreciates the role of parents in their children’s lives.

There is nothing I disliked about the book. The illustrations were vibrant and delightful. I discovered a few errors, but they did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the book. As a result, I heartily rate it four out of four stars. The book is best suited for children aged eight to twelve years.

I thought this was a Christian book because of its title 😅. Now that I know it is a fantasy, I like it nonetheless. The plot is interesting, and it seems to contain several values. I also like the cover of this book.
Lovely review.

This fantasy is captivating. I can't wait to read how Noah will defeat the evil dwarf king and his forces, that is if his mother eventually allows him to face his destiny.
