I was tagged like a month ago by Christopher Hopper with this game, mission, quest, thing...
Here’s how it works.
I’m going to list five MUST Read novels and five Keep Your Eyes on These novels, then tag five bloggers who I’m asking to post my list on their site. They may then add one book to each list but must also subtract one book. Finally they should tag five other bloggers, link here at A Christian Worldview of Fiction and comment to this post so visitors here know to check out how they may have changed the list.

MUST Reads :
The Door Within by Wayne Thomas Batson (Tommy Nelson)
Demon: a Memoir by Tosca Lee (NavPress)
The Lion Vrie by Christopher Hopper (Tsaba House)
The Restorer by Sharon Hinck (NavPress)
Beyond the Reflection’s Edge by Bryan Davis (Zondervan)
Keep Your Eyes On These :
Scarlet by Stephen Lawhead (Thomas Nelson)
On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson (WaterBrook)
Auralia’s Colors by Jeffrey Overstreet (WaterBrook)
The Last of the Nephilim (AMG Publishers)
The Paradise War by Stephen Lawhead (Westbow Press)
FIVE BOOKS TO LOOK FOR SOON:
Shade by John Olson (B&H)
Field of Blood by Eric Wilson (Thomas Nelson)
Isle of Fire by Wayne Thomas Batson (Tommy Nelson)
Stepping into Sunlight by Sharon Hinck (Bethany)
Eternity’s Edge by Bryan Davis (Zondervan)
The bloggers I’m asking to post the list (and make one book-for-book change to each list if they wish):
Unfortunately I cannot think of three other bloggers at the moment... SO the last three are open to the takers. :-D

So at long last I finally received my copy of Wayne Thomas Batson's book Isle of Fire
I enjoyed it quite a bit, I appreciated that the brutality of the violence was toned down a little from Isle of Swords.
I hesitate to say much more then that it was really good, as there isn't much to say about it without spoiling something, the book is one surprise move after another. One of my favorites involving a game of sorts. My favorite character survived so I'm happy. (No I won't say who my favorite character is.)
And yes, there is a line that leaves room for a sequel if Mr. Batson ever gets the inclination to do so.
You can buy it off of Amazon and probably a variety of bookstores and such!
