Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire Book Review

Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire

Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire

Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire is the second allegorical book in the “Codebearers Series” by the Miller Brothers.  A lot of what happened in the first book is referenced without offering an explanation. For this reason, it took me a while to figure out what was going on in this book. But once I got into it, and things started to progress in the story, I really understood the correlation between this story and God’s story.  And I liked it!

Hunter and his new friends go through several trials together, while being led by “The Author” (God) and the “Author’s Writ” (the Bible, written with same general idea of the Bible while not being exactly the same.) They meet several people who believe in the Author and help them on their journey to defeat evil in the world of Solandria. Along the way, Hunter and his friends grow in faith in the Author and their relationships with each other.

As I read this book, I found myself really thinking about each message in the book and looking forward to the next one. It reminded me quite a bit of the Chronicles of Narnia.

Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire is written for tweeners and teens. Along with Hunter, who’s a sophomore in high school, there’s also Rob, a new, kind of clumsy guy at school and cute girl, Trista. So it has appeal for both boys and girls. Since it’s an adventure story, it’s exciting enough for readers, while still reinforcing life lessons and truths about God. I see the target audience being the 10-13 crowd, but it’s still good for younger or older kids. It’s also a great book for families to read together and talk about afterwards.

    Hunter Brown and the Consuming fire was a phonomenal read. I greatly enjoyed Hunter’s journey to protect the flame from Xaul. and the cliffhanger at the end was TERRIBLE!

    Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire is an awesome story about the coming of the Holy Spirit. It takes off where Hunter Brown and the Secret of the Shadow, a story about God’ plan for our salvation, ends. Hunter is chosen once agian for another dangerous mission by the Author. Trust me, this book will leave you hanging. I got is two days and couldn’t put it down! Yes, it’s a cliffhanger, but that just builds the excitement for book 3 next year.

    Hunter Brown and the consuming fire was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I absolutely loved it and HIGHLY recommend it for all ages. Not only does it have a beautifully crafted storyline AND Christian backround, but it also has mysteries, action, adventure, puzzles, and lessons everyone can use in everyday life. The Miller brothers hit a bullseye with this book! I guarantee you’ll get your moneys worth with this book!
