C.S. Wachter creates an amazing Christian fantasy in Lander’s Legacy. Lander Devlin is just a simple, yet shy, teenage boy reared by his Pop-pop Ian. When his grandfather dies, Lander discovers many answers to why he could not have friends and was taught to use his unusual gifts. Many more questions are raised, and he hoped he could find those answers in the one man he was told he could trust, Castor Elm. Lander makes friends along his travels, but he also learns his grandfather was correct when he warned Lander about the dangerous men seeking to harm him. What could be in Lander’s past to warrant the horror he faces? Could this have anything to do with his parents' deaths?
I found Lander’s Legacy unique as the plot focuses on the center of the earth and the possibilities it holds. With edgy precision, C.S. Wachter harnesses all the elements of an exceptional fantasy: a rare plot, strong and well-developed characters, and excellent writing. The author writes so you visualize the story unfolding as you follow Lander from one threat to the next. With several supporting characters, I found I liked Castor and Becky. Their cheerful and encouraging help reassured Lander when he was unsure where to go or who to trust. Overall, I look forward to the next novel in this series. The cliff-hanger at the end was amazing, making you feel you have to read the next book to find out what happened. At the end, you feel the author put their heart and soul into this novel.
