“Dreams are but a doorway to your heart.” Such are the powerful words that open this beautiful and epic tale and they are words that captured my heart and got me interested in this story that is filled with wisdom, action, and entertainment. A perfect blend of sci-fi and fantasy, Wielder of the Gauntlets by Jason Dimmick is a compelling opening for the Armor of the Fallen series, which will have an irresistible appeal to both young and adult readers. The fallen angels are rising, and mankind may sink finally, never to rise again. But there is some hope, a small hope in an orphan who lives with his uncle, a boy called Tim and an unlikely hero. Now the Gauntlets have chosen him. The question is: Does he have what it takes to wield the power entrusted to him?
Wielder of the Gauntlets by Jason Dimmick is the kind of book that fans of Harry Potter will love because it entrusts great power into the hands of an unlikely hero — an image of Jesus couldn’t escape my mind when I consider that Tim is an insignificant character. Character development is perfect. I enjoyed the growth process of Tim. From the moment he begins to learn about his destiny, the reader notices a journey, an interior journey that begins to take place in him, a journey that leads him to more confidence, trusting in a power beyond himself, and giving himself courageously. The plot is wonderfully wrought and themes of heroism, faith, love, and salvation come across beautifully. This was a very satisfactory story with manifold lessons. It’s gripping, fast-paced, and intricately written.
