In this first book of The Guardian Angel series, the story's narrator, Pelagius the angel, introduces us to life in 1364 A.D. and to Brin, a teenage gypsy who is despised by his people because his mother died of the plague and his father was a follower of God.
This powerless teen's future seems hopeless until a hooded stranger presents him with a challenge and also a warning to beware of "the enemy". Thrown into a dangerous adventure, Brin must choose good over evil in order to find his earthly father's love and his heavenly Father's will. This story will captivate listeners ages 9-12 as they join Brin on his path to discovering what extreme faith is all about.
Would you listen to The Angel and the Ring again? Why?
My mom read this to us outloud at the original release. Now my son is enjoying it on his iPod. Good for ages 10 and up I think.
Any additional comments?
We listened to this book on a long drive with age range of 9 - 75 year olds and it was a first time for the 4 of them to listen to an audio book. They all enjoyed it was not allowed to turn it off and met with groans on any stops. But the adventure and the mystery kept them all guessing. I personally liked the angel blogs, and the they made the 9 year old laugh. I would definitely recommend this book. The reader was an easy listen and he made it easy to decipher who was doing the talking.
