Book Review and GIVEAWAY: The Great Tree, by Able Barrett {ends 12/28}

Guest review by: Becki Bayley

Just as the sun was setting, Nicholas could see the outline of the Great Tree in the distance. He began to remember the nightmare he had been having since he was a young boy. It made him sad and angry, even without the knowledge of what was happening to Andrew inside the castle.

When he reached the castle, he parked the carriage and quickly entered the castle with the Great Black Wolf. He heard Andrew’s voice in the great hall.

Nicholas entered the great hall, worried about what he was going to find.

Andrew is in search of his brother Nicholas, who was taken when they were just young boys. He may not succeed, but he had to try to fulfill their mother’s dying wish.

Official synopsis:

Book Review and GIVEAWAY: The Great Tree, by Able Barrett {ends 12/28}
A young man, Andrew and his older brother Nicholas were separated long ago. Andrew is now trying to find Nicholas even against his mother's wishes driven by her fears of what he will face in his quest. Andrew wants to tell Nicholas their mother is dying and he must see her one last time before she passes. Andrew and his dog Jenny begin a journey or even a better word would be crusade, which takes them well beyond their wildest imagination into the world of danger, evil protectors, giant wolves, dark magic, Sorcerers, Goblins, and the Prince of Darkness himself all centered around an enormous tree. This is story that blends the magic of how Christmas evolved for eternity. It is a story for the whole family including children, young people and adults of all ages will enjoy this fable in the same way we all have enjoyed other great Christmas stories of the past, but this is a thrilling and exciting story to how Christmas came to be today!

Andrew has been traveling for a while when he comes across a town with a view of the Great Tree and frightening evil sorcerer’s castle. He quickly makes friends with a young brother and sister who lead him to a room for the night, to rest for the final leg of his journey.

It doesn’t take long before Andrew is on the right path to finding the brother he has missed for most of his life. But there are still more battles for good to triumph over evil, happily-ever-after to win, and several Christmas traditions to be explained.

Overall, this story was a quick read, good for most ages. The story was 3 out of 5 stars, with likable characters and a satisfying ending.
