My Review

In all honesty, I have not read the first 3 books of this series. So, I can only base my opinion of this book and not of the whole series.

This book is more geared towards pre-teens. It has adventure, suspense, and at times can be a bit intense, it is a tale of good vs evil, although fictional, the story takes place in Africa, which you will references.

Teens need to be aware that we are living in dangerous times, and that the world is not a safe place, there is good but they must also realize there is evil at the extreme. And what is a bit terrifying is that this book could become a reality in regards to biological warfare.

It's a great read, and just from reading this book I can almost guarantee it's predecessors are just as exciting and intriguing as the last of it's series.

A Gripping Tale for Young People on the Fight of Good vs. Evil

As Christians, we believe we live in a fallen and sinful world. That means it should not surprise us with we deal with the death of a loved one. It should not shock us to see the suffering that goes on in the world, where there seems to be a continuous fight of good versus evil. Yet, while these things should not surprise, they should not make us indifferent or apathetic either. Rather, they should cause us to weep and grieve because of the sorrow sin has brought to this fallen world. In other words, incidents of suffering and sin need to be processed, not passed over. This is a great need among young people. Pre-teens and teens especially need to learn to process the fight of good versus evil in a fallen world and to recognize the power of love is ultimate. In A Fever, a Flight, and a Fight for the World, author J.A. Myhre shares a gripping fictional tale of the fight between good and evil.

The fourth and final book in the Rwendigo Tales series, A Fever, a Flight, and a Fight for the World, takes place in the midst of the African landscape and culture. The story of tragedy, disease, and death resonate with the author, J.A. Myhre, who has served as a doctor with Serge in East Africa over the last two decades. In the book, though, the fight for good versus evil is not merely met on grounds of disease and death, but deception. Dr. Mujuni finds himself a survivor of a virus epidemic in a village that has been plagued by them. Coming in contact with only a young girl named Nyakato and her bush baby Komba, they make an expedition back toward the mainland. Along the way they encounter help but also find out the harm they face, particularly with Dr. Mujuni and the questions and news surrounding the virus epidemic. In the midst of this, Dr. Mujuni comes face-to-face with this reality of good versus evil in what he faces and lives to witness which wins out.

A Fever, A Flight, and a Fight for the World is a captivating tale for pre-teens and teens to read as they look out into the world and process the fight of good versus evil in it. Author J.A. Myhre writes in an engaging way with knowledge of the African culture, even educating the reader along the way as the glossary of unfamiliar or foreign words at the end of the book highlight. Of course, a fictional story that covers the facts of good and evil is not complete without addresses the topics from the point of Christian themes, as the reader will notice throughout the book. Scattered references throughout the book serve to remind the reader of how we can understand and process the issues of good and evil in the first place. Simply put, this fictional tale is a captivating story informing the young person on African culture while teaching them about the fight of good and evil. If you know or are a pre-teen or teen (ideally ages 11-14) who loves reading fictional tales that deal with matters of truth and expand your cultural horizon, consider this gripping page-turner on the fight of good and evil.

I received this book from New Growth Press in exchange for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own and are my honest review of the book.
