On Tour with Prism Book Tours
What if the nine Fruit of the Spirit and the Seven Deadly Sins were locked in a battle for control?
Abandoned as infants, Tovi and her twin brother were raised by an eclectic tribe of warm, kind people in a treehouse village in the valley. After her brother’s sudden disappearance Tovi questions her life and her faith in an invisible King. Ignoring her best friend Silas’ advice, she decides to search for her brother in the kingdom on top of the mountain.
Above the cloud, the Council of Masters receives their orders. Tovi and her brother are the objectives. King Damien has a plan and Tovi is the key. The Council of Masters want her, but will she remain unscathed?
Amidst the glamour of the kingdom above the cloud Tovi is torn between her own dark desires and unanswered questions. It starts with a snake and a crown. When the ring is complete, will her life be over?
Tovi Tivka is an innocent young woman who longs for answers. Answers about her past, her brother, and who the mysterious Adwin is. And when a mysterious man shows up and tells her that all of her answers can be found on Mount Damien, home of the king, she jumps at the chance.
Things are quickly turned on their heads as Tovi is exposed to a whole new, dangerous world. Platt weaves with the world with allegorical finesse, teaching valuable lessons along the way.
Kingdom Above the Cloud was a quick and satisfying read, bringing to mind one of my childhood favorites, The Mirror of N’de by L. K. Malone. The characters were very well developed and the world was painted with symbolism. Tovi’s character arc was beautifully rendered, and I found myself seeing aspects of myself in the character.
This is one solid book that left me feeling both sad and hopeful. I would recommend it to anyone who loves allegories such as The Chronicles of Narnia, fantasy lovers, and anyone wanting a good, comforting read.
I Rate It: 5 stars!
