I was given a copy of “Talon’s Test and the Shield of Faith” by the author, Nicholas Downing, in exchange for an honest review. I happen to love sci fi, every since I was a child. Very little is out there with a Christian viewpoint. This one is full of biblical phrases, and morals. It’s like reading some of the stories of the old testament if it had happened in the future where there is life on other planets. There is a military element, romance, fighting scenes (that reminded me a lot of Louis L’amour books) and non-human life forms. Good writing. A very fun read. I give this book five stars. It is definitely clean enough for all ages.
