Towers of Light Volume 1 Bundle
Journey to the wild frontier land of Zoura where Lauren (12), Aiden (9), and Ethan (5) find themselves on the unexpected adventure to ...
make breakfast when their parents disappear under mysterious circumstances. They must learn to work together to survive on their own while keeping the Tower of Light shining to hold back the forces of darkness.
This thrilling series is an allegory full of lessons showing children confronting misinformation with discernment, following their conscience even when the adults in their life have other plans, and overcoming fearful isolation through their faith.
The series is written to a 3rd-6th grade reading level and makes an excellent family read-aloud for ages 6-14.
"I have son's who like junky books but when I bought these books (completely faith based), they love the characters and story line. It's so believable, my son has to ask, where these kids live because it's got to be so scary for them. My 11yr old is at that rough age and these books keep him engaged. I am only on book #3, but we are buying the whole series. I wish I had books like this as a kid,"

“We really enjoyed the Tower of Light series!! We read every night to our 8 yr old grandson and we cannot wait for the 6th book to come out!!!! We will probably read it again, it is worth it!"
Deborah Graham -
“Young readers will especially love the sibling trio at the heart of this tale, as they struggle to hold fast against the Darkness and strain to keep their family together against all the foes bent on their destruction…This epic adventure would be fantastic as a family read-aloud. Reminiscent of The Spirit Flyer series and The Wingfeather Saga, this up-and-coming series is a fun time for all ages.”

The Story Behind the Story
When my kids were little I wanted to find a way to share deep truths of the bible in a way their young minds could understand. I was concerned that the fiction on the shelf just didn't share the values I wanted them to grow up with. So I wrote the Towers of Light series to help drive home values such as discernment, following your conscience even when it's not popular, and finding courage through your face when you feel isolated and alone.
At the same time I had kids ages 5-12 that needed action, suspense and just a bit of whimsy to keep them interested, so the fantastic world of Zoura was born.
I hope you join us on our adventure, I'm sure your family will enjoy it too.
Darkness is spreading through Zoura
Beyond the borders of the heathlands, innocent animals are being turned into monsters, and good men into pawns of the Dark One.
Father has vanished after joining the Mighty Mercenaries and Mother has gone missing in search of him.
Alone on the farm, twelve-year-old- Lauren and her brave little brothers, Aiden and Ethan, must guard the Tower of Light that will guide both parents’ home.
But when a hooded stranger is caught trespassing on the farm and a new bishop claims the church, confusion pervades their close-knit community. Will the children be able to recognize who is a threat to the Tower and who is there to help them protect it?
With little else but the aid of a trio of blessed pets, three mysterious weapons, and their growing faith, Lauren, Aiden, and Ethan find it is up to them to stop the agents of The Dark One from putting out the Light and dooming the Heathlands to eternal Darkness.
