Review of Quest for Celestia by Steven James

Quest for Celestia: A Reimagining of the Pilgrim's Progress
An Epic Fantasy Worth Reading

Quest of Celestia is the fantasy retelling of John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress.

I would like to thank Netgalley and AMG Publishers for the opportunity to read the book for an honest review.

Quest for Celestia is an epic fantasy book about a young man leaving his home and family after a wizard approaches him with the idea of going on a journey to the Kingdom of Celestia. The story is compelling and the author develops the characters quite well. Although I have never read John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress I found myself recognizing certain aspects of the story mirroring the New Testament of the Bible but it is done in such a way that it is congruous to the story being told. I would recommend this read to any teen or adult fantasy fan out there because there are certain themes that are not appropriate for younger readers. I love the cover.
