GIVEAWAY and Book Review: Quest for Leviathan by Amanda Tero

Amanda Tero has become affectionately known as my writing sister. Not only is she a sweetheart, but her heart for Christ shines forth in everything she does. It was this that had first drawn me to her. So I’m thrilled to introduce you to her latest short story release and invite you to enter her giveaway.

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.

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.


What I Loved: I was treated with a glimpse of what life may have been like during the time of Job. The story is short, so we don’t see much depth in that area, but what we do see is very interesting. Tero paid close attention to the ship’s detail, as did her illustrator. The illustrations are remarkable, and they help highlight a lovely story centered on Anath’s struggle with God and His will.
Whenever you pick up a Tero story, you can be sure you’ll find a message for the soul. Quest for Leviathan was a creative approach to a beautiful, timeless message.

Rating and Recommendation: I’m giving it 5 stars and recommending it to any Christian looking for a quick read or something for their children.

  1. I really enjoyed QFL too! It was a nice short read, though I wish it had been a little longer (I love her writing style so much!)

    I noticed you write Civil War fiction! I do too! It’s my favorite time era. Will there be more in the series?

    1. I agree! Longer is always good.

      How cool!!! We’ll have to talk shop sometime.
      It’s my favorite era too. I’ve always loved the dresses.
      There will be more to the series but the remaining books are set 150 years later and tie in with the Civil War generation. I’ll be leaving the war for a while but I hope to go back sometime and write another CW series.
