Title: The Road to Chidarra
Author: Keith B. Perrin
The Road to Chidarra is a Christian fiction novel based in an age when men worshiped at the altar of their cruel masters, the gods, and feared the monsters and strange beings who plagued their lands with malice and terror. The cries of the people are heard, and a stranger is sent from afar to guide, protect, and bring peace to the lands. This, however, comes at great cost, for the dark powers do not give in so easily, and the struggle for freedom always and forever shall be paved with blood and sacrifice.
I’m going to start this review by saying that I enjoyed the narration. It was smooth and easy to listen to, but the story itself had me thinking. I like the creation of the world and the characters in this audiobook, but the switching of tenses distracted me.
There is lots of suspense, and the story itself has some real action-packed moments, but I struggled to keep myself involved. The writing style wasn’t one that I was used to and while others might enjoy it, I found it hard to connect to characters and to scenes because it comes across as an omniscient POV which in itself is interesting if you enjoy that type of style.
