Ever since I have joined BookLook Bloggers (formerly called BookSneeze), I have been exposed to many great writers and book titles. Though I did miss out in reviewing book one of the A Wells Spring series, Soul's Gate, I did get a chance to review the second installment, Memory's Door, last year. Finding Christian novels with a supernatural twist may be rare, but if you look hard enough you will find a few titles, which is why is signed up to review the third novel in the series, Spirit Bridge, last month.

In this fantasy, spiritual adventure, the Warriors Riding (Reece, Dan, Brandon and Marcus) thought they had defeated Zennon and his army, but as soon as they try to rest from the last battle, a new round of vicious attacks occur. The warlord Zennon is still alive and he is bringing his wrath across all supernatural realms.

Zennon has always been one step ahead of the Warriors Riding, planting a hidden agenda long before the Warriors were ever set in motion - an agenda that will tear the Warriors Riding in half. Released from the clutches of Zennon's alternate-reality prison, Simon, a street magician, races against time to remember who he is.

The Warriors Riding has their hands full, as they wonder if Simon is a friend or enemy. They are also worried about their own, a young warrior, Miyo, whom seems to know too much about the spiritual realities. While each member is dealing with their own identity drama, they must be ready for the final battle of good vs. evil.

While I still haven't read the first book in the series, I easily figured out who was who and what was what when I read the second book. The third and final book is the better than the second installment. Author James L. Rubart does a great job creating memorable characters and crafting intense battle scenes. I'm not the biggest fan of fantasy-type storytelling, but I did enjoy reading Spirit Bridge. Now, I'm going to have to hunt down the first book and read it. Then reread books two and three.
