The Past and Future King transports the reader to another world filled with compelling characters that move the imagination. More than a fantasy book, it is a story with ageless relevance to the great themes of life such as adventure, love, redemption, and fulfillment.
Warren M. Mueller has written a great fantasy in The Past and Future King that takes readers on an adventure of good versus evil, where mythical characters (of the sort readers have found in the worlds of Tolkien and Lewis) struggle for world domination. Readers will follow the adventures of Tom, the main character, as he journeys to discover his identity and purpose. He loves to read and becomes a friend of Willet the Scribe, who shares his trunk full of books of history and legends and warns Tom that reading them will expand and transform his mind because the words within them will come alive. Tom shares with Willet about a recurring dream, and Willet tells him that the dream should not be ignored. Through this adventure, readers see how dreams bridge the worlds of fantasy and reality.
“Author Warren Mueller takes us into these unknown realms, and readers are able to vividly see all that is happening. I believe the strength of this book is the wonderfully written descriptions, which allow the reader to experience the adventures and the tension that the story brings with it” (Joyce M. Gilmour).
