Beyond Evansing – Courage of the Irish Kingdom Review Part 3

Another enthusiastic review by a reader delighted with Beyond Evansing – Courage of the Irish Kingdom.


Glen Klassen has finally broken the suspense he has kept his readers in for almost four years! He has now released the sequel to his fiction novel, Evansing – Heart of the Irish Kingdom! This means his tale of the quest for a united Irish kingdom continues in the second episode, Beyond Evansing – Courage of the Irish Kingdom.

Main Body

Glen spares no time in getting us underway again on the mission for which King Erith first brought Edwin to Evansing. True to the form of his first book in this series, he steers us through many twists and turns, incorporating the relationship between the physical and spiritual realms, the battle of good versus evil, and the elation of victory intertwined with seeming defeat. As a result, the courage of Edwin continues to grow amidst warfare, kidnappings, spiritual battles, time travel and heartbreak. He also continues to grow in wisdom and discernment as a true Crown Prince of the kingdom. Glen has a unique way of using imagery and conversation to bring out demonstrable truths, both relational and spiritual, to help cement a higher road for all of us to ponder.


This sequel will not disappoint the reader who was captured and has been held spell bound after experiencing the first adventures of Edwin, Greer, King Erith and Percival in 11th Century Ireland through the pages of Evansing – Heart of the Irish Kingdom.

Beyond Evansing – Courage of the Irish Kingdom Review

Beyond Evansing – Courage of the Irish Kingdom Review

The following Beyond Evansing – Courage of the Irish Kingdom review has indicated extensive thoughts on this book.

Overall Impressions

Whilst reading through the story, the plot, characters and landscape, I noted the events related closely to the historical time when Ireland consisted of different kingdoms.  The settings of the forest, the hills, and the open moorland are well described. The contrast of darkness and light representing good and evil infuses the atmosphere of the countryside, fortresses and villages.

As a reader I could concentrate upon the tone of the novel as it is full of changing scenarios.  The book’s short sentences are very clear and direct. The longer ones, carefully constructed to give a sense of continuity.   I wondered what would happen next as the novel progressed.  The author must have powerful images as he writes…

The Story as Narrative

Themes compose a vital part of your story as they fuse together the culture of a nation divided with the struggle for power and control, protectionism, contradictions of belief within families, villages and kingdoms.  These themes of hate and love, despair and hope, trust and mistrust, courage and cowardice, good and evil make very distinctive binary opposites to shape the key purpose, as the direction of the main plot and sub-plots progress and integrate.

I could imagine your Story told orally as a legend passed down from generation to generation. The telling of a story is in its belief and viability as a whole.

The Characters

A variety of characters from villains, kings, princes, princesses (mother and daughter) servants, holy men (contrast of monks and druids), foreign invaders like the crusaders, military personnel of all ranks.  Their feelings, actions and words fused together to make them believable within their station. royalty or service, rich or poor and what behaviors were expected of them.   The drama of choice and the making of a wise decision is evident throughout.

First review

This reader expresses passion in his review of Beyond Evansing – Courage of the Irish Kingdom.

This sequel “Beyond Evansing” focuses on the trust & solidarity between Evansing& its allied kingdoms & between Edwin as well as on the endeavor of Edwin in developing right relationships with those in his life. Magic, dreams, illusion & visions infuse this epic adventure towards a royal united proud Ireland. The sacred, passionate bond in lifelong intimate marriage is pronounced between Edwin & Greer making them best, trusted friends & expressive lovers. What a dazzling prince & princess they’ve become.

Edwin has ultimate trust & solidarity with Joan of Arc  & her proclamation that Evansing must resume its divinely ordained mission of uniting Ireland. Edwin & King Erith must be sensitive and strategic in every consultation with allied kingdoms in order for trust & solidarity to occur. Edwin’s inner strength and wisdom temper the gallant warrior within him as he shows his assertive skills and abilities in convincing others that there is more to come and to live lives that count.-Belief in their noble cause makes it feel right!!!. What a captivating book filled with redeeming right relationships of honor, courage & character. I was drawn again into a universe rich with wonder, genius wisdom, devoted faith & hearts full of hope. Boldness and righteous authority fuel the “noblest pursuit”.-A fine read!!!!!!
