The Bell Mountain Series

“It’s Faithful Fiction That Reveals the Kingdom of God”

The book publishing market is flooded with fiction, and one market that has its full share of titles is the “tween” genre of fantasy, science fiction, and tales based in history. But is such a market full? Not hardly. Why not? It’s because the best ideas in storytelling have yet to be told, and for the Christian tween market, the best ideas are those that are both faithful to the Christian faith and present a unique perspective not found in most stories.

The Bell Mountain Series from Storehouse Press represents such an innovative approach to fiction targeting a younger audience. Author, Lee Duigon, has created a thrilling tale about an adventurous trek to discover the greatness of the kingdom. In an era when most Christian fiction supports an “escapist” Christianity of living in fear of the last days, the Bell Mountain Series of books helps Christian children embrace the victorious message of the Gospel through a narrative that will keep them turning the pages.

The author believes that children should learn the greatness of God’s Kingdom and how it reigns over all other earthly kingdoms. This will help to provide Christian children with a framework for living a personally victorious faith as they better understand the purpose of God’s Word in their lives and how they are part of the winning team!

The Bell Mountain Series is sure to influence the way Christian fiction is written by presenting a victorious message of God’s Kingdom in history as His enemies are vanquished and His church helps to establish His dominion. A new generation of Christians are already being trained for cultural victory and novels like the Bell Mountain Series provide the much needed “narrative” to help children visualize that victory in an exciting and entertaining way.

Bell Mountain (Bell Mountain, 1)

The world is going to end … as soon as Jack and Ellayne ring the bell on top of Bell Mountain. No one has ever climbed the mountain, and no one has ever seen the bell. But the children have a divine calling to carry out the mission, and it sweeps them into high adventure.

Cellar Beneath the Cellar (Bell Mountain, 2), The

A world's future lies buried in its distant past. Barbarian armies swarm across the mountains, driven by a terrifying vision of a merciless war god on earth.

Thunder King (Bell Mountain, 3), The

The Thunder King's vast army encamps against the city, a ring of fire and steel. But treason brews inside the city walls...

The tiny army of the Lord is on the march against the undefeated horde, in bold obedience to a divine command; but the boy king, Ryons, marches all alone across an empty land. The Lost Book of Scripture have been found, but they may be lost again before the human race can read them. And Jack and Ellayne have been captured by the Heathen.

Last Banquet (Bell Mountain, 4), The

In the wake of a barbarian invasion, chaos sweeps across Obann. The boy king and his faithful chiefs try to restore order before the Heathen come again - not knowing that this time, the Thunder King himself will lead his armies.

Fugitive Prince, The (Bell Mountain, 5)

There is a new Thunder King in the East, and new threats against the West. The City of Obann seethes with treason and plots against King Ryons - and an ignorant slave-boy must defend the rightful king's throne. And from the Lost Book of King Ozias emerges the first glimmer of God's promise of a Savior.

Palace, The (Bell Mountain, 6)

Queen Gurun and the boy who doubles for King Ryons; Jack, kidnapped from his home and forced to serve the traitors plotting against the rightful king; and a new lord of Obann's Temple, bearing a weapon with unthinkable powers of destruction... All are converging on the Palace.

For the first time in two thousand years, Obann will have a Coronation Day, and a king will wear his crown. But it is not the plotters' intention that he shall wear it for long.

Glass Bridge (Bell Mountain, 7), The

Can faith do what pride and power can’t? In obedience to God, the boy king, Ryons, with only half his tiny army, crosses the mountains to invade the Thunder King’s domains.

Confronted by perils they can barely understand, with no safe choices set before them, the heroes of Obann must risk their lives on the glass bridge that can only be crossed by faith.

Temple, The (Bell Mountain, 8)

King Ryons has led his tiny army into the heart of the Thunder King's dominion. Ahead lies the impregnable fortress of the enemy, defended by the destructive powers of the ancient world.

The First Prester, Lord Orth, continues his missionary work among the Heathen: for God has commanded him to establish a new Temple, one not made with human hands. But in the great city of Obann, they reject Orth's vision and seek to rebuild the old Temple with tainted gold amassed for the Thunder King by crime and violence.

Throne (Bell Mountain, 9), The

In city and in forest, the boy king’s loyal servants struggle to preserve his throne. But it will be a long journey home for King Ryons and his army, while ambitious and unfaithful men scheme to take away his kingdom.

Nothing in the city of Obann is what it seems to be: evil masquerades as good, while good must hide behind a semblance of evil. The king’s chief spy must pose as the usurper’s trusted adviser—but will he be able to find the help he needs to mount a successful resistance?

Silver Trumpet (Bell Mountain, 10), The

A silver trumpet sounds from the walls of the city, with tidings of unexpected joy: the Thunder Kind is dead, his empire destroyed, and the boy king, Ryons, whom all believed was dead, is coming home victorious. But no one can find the trumpeter. Was it a man of flesh and blood, or a messenger from Heaven?

The Temptation (Bell Mountain, 11)

Across the river from the great city of Obann lies a greater city, but a dead one—the ruins of Old Obann, destroyed in the Day of Fire a thousand years ago: the seat of Obann’s Empire, now a place of death and desolation. But do its ruins contain the secrets of the Empire, and its power? Can the distant past be brought to life again? The usurper who has seized the city from King Ryons now seeks that power for himself. The past calls to him, and he hears its voice.
