Quest for Leviathan by Amanda Tero *Blog Tour

Quote 01_preview

Are sea monsters a real thing? What about fire-breathing dragons? According to the Bible, there is a fire-breathing sea creature who really existed: the leviathan. Amanda Tero brings this dragon to life in her newest short story, “Quest for Leviathan.” Join Anath and his crew of ninety-nine rowers as they face the waves of the Mediterranean Sea and the power of Leviathan.

quest for leviathan

Leviathan took the life of Anath’s father. Anath has spent three years preparing for the voyage that will end the threat of Leviathan. Yet as the Valor launches into the depths of the Mediterranean, an inward quest also begins, taking Anath to depths he is not willing to face.

My Review:

I think this was an interesting topic for the author to write about. I’ve never read anything like this, to be honest. It’s set in Job’s time, and although we really don’t have much information on that, Miss Tero wrote it wonderfully. I really think it’s amazing to know a fire-breathing creature existed a long time ago, but it’s so weird that nothing like that is in this time now.

Anath was, overall, an okay character. He had been dealing with the Leviathan for a long time, especially after his father had died from it. I do feel that his character was underdeveloped, but he was a believable character in that time period overall and that mattered quite a bit to me.

I think the story was a little too short. It ended kind of abruptly, and I wished we could have seen some more action or how he was dealing with his spiritual journey a while longer. What I really loved was how Miss Tero weaved in verses from the book of the Bible, Job. I didn’t even realize that until she mentioned it.

There aren’t any content warnings I can think of, other than some mentions of broken bones or missing limbs, etc, which would make this a perfect read for all ages!

  1. I’m not sure I’ve read anything about Leviathan, either. 😉 It’s not often in stories, and the era is likewise foreign.
