Reviews - What do customers think about The Tower of Geburah: Book 3 (Archives of Anthropos)?
Great book! May 10, 2005
This book is GREAT. Three kids are taken to Anthropos(in case you didn't know, the word Anthropos means man). They have to free King Kardia, and Gaal(pronounced Gahl)the Shepherd is rumored to be near. Like some other guy on here says, you want to just run into his arms. You can't really do that with Alsan of Narnia. One of the interesting things is that the book describes Gaal exactly like the Bible describes Jesus: Wearing a white robe, having white hair, a golden sash around his chest, and his eyes seemingly on fire(the Bible only describes Jesus like that in two places: neither are when He is on earth). This a FANTASTIC book. It is kid friendly, I really liked the idea of the Qadar, which are actually much like Tolkien's Black Riders. The part having the furies and harpies was also interesting. In fact, if I was to write a book of fiction, it would probably look like this book. My advice: Get it!
Wonderful Book!!! Jun 20, 2004
The Tower of Geburah was pretty much a story about good against evil. Three childeren:Wesley,Lisa,and Kurt are mysteriously sucked out of thier own world to be thrown into the country of Anthropos- a country in the middle of a war. The three help fight against the sorcerer, Hocoino,and his goblin army in an effort for King Kardia to regain his throne. John White presented a very well thought out book that shows evil to be deceptive as well as bold and that there is always forgiveness.I really loved reading this book. It was a believable story -modeled after C.S.Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia

I was in the kitchen one day and my dad dropped the book in my lap. "Here, read this," Dad said. I read it and LOVED IT!! I read it twice now, and my family has read the first one. ("The Sword Bearer")
Very good allegory, but . . . Aug 16, 2002
This book has sword, sorcery, excitement, corruption, betrayal, redemption, war and . . . well, lots of nifty stuff.
This is a great yougn adult book and really hums along. The only parts of the book that feel forced are the moments when the children should clearly be in grave, life-threatening peril but are protected by the authors desire to seem get through relatively unscathed. Still, he manages to avoid the peril of having his heroes constantly rescued and simply gives them unbelievable luck.
A great book.

I'm only a teenager (14) and I've already read this book along with The Iron Sceptre more times then I can count! You absolutely fall in love with the characters, and Gaal especially. You want to run into his arms and make him carry you away from everything, which is something you can't really do with Tolkein's Frodo (too short) or Lewis's Aslan (lion, hello!). But with Gaal you can just picture him and how warm and loving he must be. I can't wait to get the rest of the series...
