Reviews - What do customers think about Faith Of The Unforgotten (The Foundations of Hope)?
Cool concepts. Good first novel. 4.75 stars. Jul 6, 2008
This novel is one of the better fantasy novels that I have read. It is based on principles and morals and a belief in God by some of the characters. You will find no profanity or lewd sex scenes within, so you can feel comfortable letting teens and adults who object to those things read this novel. If this novel has any weaknesses, it is very infrequent, repetitive statements or concepts. That's about it.
Overall, the varied races, characters, creatures, Gifts, and other concepts make an enjoyable read.
The battle descriptions are exciting and detailed. The author focuses the main violence against the Saurian enemies and seems adverse to human against human killing in the story, though there are some human versus human sword battles--good ones!
The way many of the characters are linked together over the course of the story was a nice touch to the fairly intricate plot. You feel as though you not only know the main characters, but the secondary ones as well. I had a hard time with the electricty concept, but once I took the ionized, electrically-overcharged atmosphere as a given and didn't over-analyze its effects in relation to the armies' armor, swords, et cetera; the whole war against the Saurian race became enjoyable.
The dragon and its relationship with one character was a neat twist.
I felt early on that one character's sword-wielding ability may have come too abruptly, yet the author leaves the impression that a Gift is at work here. That character was one of my favorites. The ability of the believers in God to see the Saurians for what they truly are, was also a nice touch. The novel ends with a nice setup for book two.

New Age elements Jun 24, 2008
Leathel Grody is a promising writer. He builds a compelling story. However I would not put this title under the Christian catagory. The main character is encouraged to build her ability to read minds and speak into other's minds and such. Revelation tells us these types of abilities will become more prevelent during the latter days. Anytime we try to exercise powers outside ourselves without looking to God we are in deep danger. For more information on that danger please read "The Latent Power of the Soul" by Watchman Nee. Its an excellent little book. I hope Leathel reads it - its a great eye opener to the pitfalls of the sometimes subtle dangers of the new age.
