Sky Light Rises is a work of fiction in the Christian science fiction and fantasy subgenre, and it is the second novel in the Whisperers book trilogy. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Donna E. Lane. In this second installment of the absolutely thrilling series about world-ending destructive powers, we see a planet engulfed in a dark lord’s tyrannical rule. But the survivors of darkness and disaster are still determined to find their way back to a world of light, and they now have a whole new quest to open the portal to the First World and put a stop to darkness once and for all.
It is in this second novel that we see the Christian themes of the work coming to the fore in a more prominent way and actually becoming key to the plot mechanics as opposed to being part of the general world-building, and I enjoyed this subtle development immensely. Author Donna E. Lane has crafted a fantastic family read in this way so that all generations can enjoy it, with different plot strands that weave together to create a powerful overall struggle that you really feel the characters going through. The trials draw familiar parallels with those from Biblical and mythological tales, and the message of hope, faith, and survival stands tall even in the darkest of times. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Sky Light Rises and the series so far to fantasy readers seeking a Christian-themed that seeks to uplift and inspire but never to preach.
