Readers of authors such as C.S. Lewis, classical literature, and E. Nesbit will find A Thousand Stars a wonderful read for family and individuals. It weaves the stories of Jimmy and Hopeful together in an exciting and touching way. Lillian E. excels at foreshadowing, developing her characters, and taking from classical literature. A Thousand Stars is a worthy book equal to Lewis’ Narnia books and Nesbit’s The Magic City.
This story is, without doubt, a special one. I was immediately swept up in the whimsical wonder of the world that Lillian E. has crafted. Every character – from Hopeful and Jimmy to Tearomay and Arkin – are vividly imagined. I felt like I knew each of them and was experiencing their victories and losses right alongside them. But this is not just a well-written book; this is a powerful story that sweeps readers away to the land of A Thousand Stars, reminding them with every step of the journey that nothing is ever truly lost as long as you have hope. A Thousand Stars is a beautiful debut Christian fantasy novel that you will not want to miss.
