Blog Tour banner

Are sea monsters a real thing? What about fire-breathing dragons? According to the Bible, there is a fire-breathing sea creature who really existed: the leviathan. Amanda Tero brings this dragon to life in her newest short story, “Quest for Leviathan.” Join Anath and his crew of ninety-nine rowers as they face the waves of the Mediterranean Sea and the power of Leviathan.

About the Story

Leviathan took the life of his father.

Anath has spent three years preparing for the voyage that will end the threat of Leviathan. Yet as the Valor launches into the depths of the Mediterranean, an inward quest also begins, taking Anath to depths he is not willing to face.

My Review
Though little is known about this time period, I greatly enjoyed the immersive and accurate historical feel of this Biblical fiction story. I could see the ship, feel the waves, and understand the characters’ motivations.

For such a short story, the backstory was well-developed and thoroughly presented. The reader fully understands Anath’s thought processes and feelings before the action begins. The action sequences were then portrayed well, and Anath’s spiritual struggle was gripping: I was on edge to know what he would decide. However, because of the complete backstory, I felt that the story ended a bit too soon – because Anath’s entire life purpose up to that point had been “quest for Leviathan,” I wanted to know what became of him – what did he do for the rest of his life and how did he handle any lingering negative feelings after the climax.

The Biblically accurate way in which Leviathan was portrayed was refreshing. The wise counsel and spiritual truth shared in the story was excellent. It did seem like Leviathan was too easily found when it was convenient, but perhaps that’s not inaccurate. Also, I loved the illustrations that set apart each individual section of the story.

Overall, this is an excellent short story I’d highly recommend.
