In Luke Aylen’s The Mirror and the Mountain, a title released in association with Essential Christian, two 11-year-olds pass through a mirror and end up in a magical kingdom called Presadia. Trapped in a war-torn kingdom with no way home, Summer and Jonah are pulled into a strange quest to find the long-lost king, who alone has the power to restore peace to Presadia. Meeting strange and wonderful people along the way, including the dwarf high lord, the elf queen and a fire-breathing dragon, they learn important lessons about pride, greed, and the power of words as they embark on an epic journey to save the realm. The children and their new friends must be brave as they fly across the broken kingdom and climb a misty mountain. Can they fulfil their quest to find the king and restore peace to Presadia? And will Summer and Jonah ever make it back to their own world?
Luke is creative coordinator at Spring Harvest and director of photography at Kairos Film & Media.
“I loved reading The Mirror and the Mountain. I can honestly say that from the first page to the last I was enthralled - from a magical kingdom to a magical book.”|“Opening up The Mirror and the Mountain brought back the warm, fuzzy feelings of reading The Famous Five and The Secret Seven. But as the story went on, and the message behind Luke’s storytelling became clear, the warm fuzziness turned to joy and surprise.”|“Luke has succeeded in creating a world of rich imagery and powerful symbolism that could help the whole family explore who Jesus is and what he is like.”|“The stories that fill our worlds as kids have the power to shape our entire lives. I think every child should read this book, mainly because they will love it but also because they’ll be taking something powerful into their souls that will serve them well.”
