The Armoire is a page-turning mystery-part-fantasy with a Christian twist. It’s The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe meets The Left Behind Series, but all its own 100 %. Don’t take my word for it, just add this one to your list when you need a book escape! No matter your beliefs, this one will make your heart beat quicken and leave you with wonder. Ione writes a well-crafted novel with believable characters who suffer loss, find hope, and share vulnerably with us. I’m not sure I’ve read a fiction that has touched my heart quite like this one, leaving me quite convicted yet filled with illumination and peace. Be forewarned in the best possible way: Paramount topics touched within may cause you to reflect on your current state, and nudge you in spirit.
Though I am not so picky about books, it takes a good hook to keep me interested and even more so, a well thought-out main character to make me want more as I land on the last page. This book did that for me, which is why I appreciate writers who hone their craft and reward their readers in various ways.
I read this book in a day. It took me a few hours in between my daily doings, and I highly recommend it if you are on the prowl for something short sparing no action. Sometimes I think more novels should be this way. It cuts to the chase; you won’t get bored. My main hope for this book is that the author create a sequel lest I be forced to make one up in my head! Grab your copy of The Armoire and tell your friends about it.
My Amazon Review:
The Armoire had my heart beating fast, wondering how the story would end. Ione has done a fabulous job of weaving the story and mystery altogether. There’s a healthy balance of tragedy and joy here, where mystery and fantasy with a Christian twist leave you on the edge of your page. This needs to be a movie. I am rooting for a sequel!
