Review: Quest for Celestia: A Reimagining of the Pilgrim's Progress by Steven James

About the book:
Join Kadin on his journey to Celestia in this creative reimagining of John Bunyan's Christian classic, The Pilgrim's Progress. Kadin's faith is challenged and strengthened as he seeks to rid himself of the growth on his neck and make his way to Celestia. Steven James uses his master storytelling ability to re-create the life-changing journey of The Pilgrim's Progress for readers ages 14 to 19.

My rating:
My thoughts:

Quest for Celestia was a great read! I wasn't too sure if I'd like it, but once I read a couple chapters, I was into the story and ended up loving it!

Ever since I began reading the Patrick Bowers Files, in 2011, Steven James has been one of my favorite authors. I've enjoyed all ten fiction novels I've read of his, including Quest for Celestia. This book had a different feel to it than the other books (as can be expected, since they are thrillers and this is a fantasy/reimagining of The Pilgrim's Progress).

Overall, I loved reading this book! I'm so glad I decided to buy it earlier this month. I recommend Quest for Celestia to anyone that typically enjoys these types of reads. I am eagerly anticipating the release of Steven James' upcoming books, Checkmate (Patrick Bowers Files) and Blur (Blur Trilogy).

*I did not get this for review. I purchased my copy. As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

Just a note: this book was rereleased in 2012 with a new cover. Here it is:

I used the original, since that is the edition I read.

I have never read the Pilgrim's Progress although I have heard a ton about it. It always looked too complicated. This sounds like the perfect alternative for me! Thanks for passing this on!
