The Tree is an extremely well-written and engaging novel. Mallett has penned a truly epic human and theological tale of adventure, love, intrigue, and the search for ultimate truth and meaning. If this book is ever made into a movie—and it should be—the world need only surrender to the truth of the everlasting message.

Calling Denise Mallett an incredibly gifted author is an understatement! The Tree is captivating and beautifully written. I keep on asking myself, “How can somebody write something like this?” Speechless.

Cast upon the background of an artistically unique fantasy world, we are led through kingdoms, countrysides, and taverns to solve the violent mystery thrust upon us in the early pages of the prologue…

I was held captive, constantly wanting to sneak away time to read it, staying up until the wee hours to finish it. This story finds its way deep into the reader’s heart. It is woven with characters who truly come to life, with the splendor of beauty amidst dark shadows, and will lead you to ponder the meaning of suffering, the depth of mercy, and ultimately to cling to the promise of healing.
