Blog Tour: The Quest for the Leviathan by Amanda Tero || Spotlight, Review, and 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.

About the Book

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

Quest for Leviathan is about a young man, Anath, and his journey towards conquering the Leviathan.

Since it was a short story, there wasn’t much space for character development or nearly anything of that sort, but Anath was portrayed well, as was the main storyline (though the beginning and the end felt more developed than the actual story itself). Of course, it felt a little rushed, as all short stories are, but overall it was well done!

The Gospel is very clearly portrayed and Amanda did it very well! In addition, this was historical fiction based on a time of the Bible that is not very well documented, and it was really interesting to read a piece based on the Leviathan, which I hadn’t done before.

My Ranking

3/5

Things liked-

  • discussed a rarely discussed topic
  • good development for a short story
  • gospel portrayed well

Things disliked-

  • felt a bit rushed
  • the action felt a bit cheated: the beginning and end was more developed

Giveaway
