Character Spotlight: Shakti

In Daniel and the Triune Quest, a new villain takes the stage. Shakti, the self-styled goddess of pestilence, is on a mission from the Enemy, and one thing she’s good at is using fear to manipulate people into her control.

What happens when fear controls us?

We automatically forget the promises of our Heavenly Father and intense confusion sets in. And confusion ripens us for deception. Daniel and Ben aren’t defenseless, however, and learn how to turn their eyes away from the Enemy and his plans, and to focus on God and his power even in the midst of terror. Once fixed on this, fear and deception melt away, and the way of salvation is clear.

Does the Enemy frequently use fear against you?

How can you fix your attention on God and his promises?

Praise for Daniel and the Triune Quest

Christian Fiction Review by Peter Younghusband

5.0 out of 5 stars (Amazon)
Better Than Its Predecessor. Takes This Series To The Next Level. You Won’t Be Disappointed.
on September 15, 2017

Every author and every reader anticipate that a sequel will be just as good or better than the previous….Well, I can say that this is a better story than its predecessor (Daniel and the Sun Sword)….

Lumbatis has shown more of the biblical aspects of who God is, the Trinity, and the Gospel message….

The account where Daniel meets Jesus is powerful but gentle and bypasses the head and ministers straight to the heart….

I know Lumbatis researched the mythology and culture….[and] translated this research into the plot and setting of the novel very well. It is great world building….Makes it very credible and real.

Reader’s Favorite Review by Sarah Scheele

 5.0 out of 5 stars (Reader’s Favorite)

 Daniel and the Triune Quest is a blast—a breathtaking thrill ride!

A blast—a breathtaking thrill ride! Tantalizing prose, and…deliciously well-written. I fell head-over-heels for the witty, sarcastic dialogue. Daniel and Ben’s adventures are action-adventure spelled out, along with a hefty dose of drama, comedy, and memorable characters.

The action-packed narrative undoubtedly has the power to lure kids away from video games, and the spiritual messages are core, buoyed by dazzling anime-like visuals presented through…clear-cut learning arcs for the two boys.

Parents…should jump at this one and bookmark Nathan Lumbatis for future reference.

Review D&SS on Amazon!

If you have read Daniel and the Sun Sword (and liked it), please go to my Amazon page and leave a review!

 

Wow! My husband and I couldn’t put this book down. It sure got our hearts pumping! Exciting, surprising, inspiring — but also arresting. It made me stop and think about the realities of God’s purpose for our lives, the very real “battles” we face, and His power & strength available to us in the midst of it all. Rich imagery. So good!

Daniel and the Sun Sword Review

Peter Younghusband regularly reviews Christian books at the Christian Fiction Review. Since D&SS debuted, I’ve wanted him to do a review, but he was too swamped. Finally, he was able to not only review it, but also Daniel and the Triune Quest! His DTQ review will be posted hopefully in conjunction with the book’s release. But, while you’re waiting, find a brief excerpt from his review below, as well as a link to the whole post.

Additionally, D&SS peaked on Amazon (probably thanks to Peter), and was in the Top 100 for one of its categories!

The Guru’s Review: 

The author asked me to review this novel in 2015 when it was about to be released but I was unable to due to a long list of author requested reviews. I have been able to now as he requested a review of the next novel in the series about to be released over the next few weeks.

Now that I have read this debut novel, I realise what I have missed. This is a wild ride for a debut novel in this genre. Lumbatis writes as one who is a seasoned novelist. It is very hard to distinguish that this is his debut. On all the infrastructure that makes up a novel, a tick can be applied. The pace never slows down, the action never stops, the characters are well developed. Worldbuilding provides a solid foundation upon which everything rests. This is developed well and believable. The supernatural elements are based firmly in Biblical foundations. They are also rooted in the mythology of the geographical location and culture depicted. This is not surprising seeing that Lumbatis is writing from a Christian/Biblical worldview.

In relation to the supernatural elements, I loved Lumbatis’s take on the Gospel message. The same for those of angels and demons and their various forms and names. Using poetic licence that includes artifacts that are supernaturally empowered by God to assist in defeating the power’s of darkness, does not detract from the Gospel message or compromise its tenets. To me, this shows Lumbatis’s motive to adhere to his faith and belief in the Bible and its doctrines.

DTQ Updates

We are still waiting for the proof copy from the printer to ensure everything is formatted correctly. Once we get that, then a solid release date will be posted!

The book trailer, however, is finished. I’ll be posting that as soon as the book is available for pre-order!

Here are a few screenshots to whet your appetite.
