About the Book
Author: R.J. Anderson
Genre: Christian YA Fantasy
Release date: February 9, 2021
How do you fight fire without fire? When a freak storm uncovers the entrance to a mysterious underground chamber, Ivy and Martin expect to find treasure. But what they discover is even more valuable: a barrow full of sleeping spriggans, magically preserved for centuries. With the vengeful piskey queen Betony determined to capture Ivy and her followers, the secret hideaway could be key to both their peoples’ survival. But the piskeys and spriggans are ancient enemies, and when Ivy tries to make peace her own followers threaten to turn against her. Plagued by treachery, betrayal and desertion on every side, Ivy must find a way to unite the magical folk of Cornwall–or doom herself, Martin and everyone she loves to death at Betony’s hand. Yet without the legendary fire-wielding power that marks a true piskey queen, can Ivy convince her people to believe?

Yall… It is here the finale to an epic tale and just wow!
R.J. Anderson managed to do what few others have done with a trilogy, wrap it up with a satisfying conclusion that even though I was sad to see it end I was happy with the outcome. Ivy and Martin grew so much since Swift! I LOVED watching them grow and seeing all the secondary characters again and again as they grew with Ivy and Martin (I do believe that they are now my most favorite characters EVER). I loved the allegorical style of this story and the themes of faith, forgiveness, and putting your heart in the Savior’s hand. Wonderfully done. My favorite book in this trilogy.
I give Torch 5 out of 5 stars for the AMAZING characters, the Beautiful storyline, and all the action/adventure packing into the pages. Truly a work of art! Cannot wait for my hardcover editions to get here!
