The Iron Sceptre is a fantasy novel written by John White, and published in 1981. It is part of The Archives of Anthropos series. Despite being published second in the series, after The Tower of Geburah, chronologically it is the fourth book. It features the same characters as The Tower of Geburah, Wesley, Kurt and Lisa, with the addition of their cousin, Mary. The book is very similar in feel and tone to C. S. Lewis' fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia.

The Iron Sceptre, the source of King Kardia's power to rule, is in peril. The children, joined by their cousin Mary, are called on to stop Mirmah and her chief sorcerer, Archimago.

Comments to eBook The Iron Sceptre
If you are a kid between 4 and 16, or have children in the same age range, I can't think of a better book to read than this one, other than the Bible and the Narnia books by C.S. Lewis.

I especially appreciate how these books are more up to date than the Nania books. It makes it easier for 21st century children to relate to the 4 children pulled into Anthopos easier. Although Mary is overly selfish in the beginning, she develops improved, yet flawed character as the story develops, and as she meets Gaal.
There is so much wonderful imagery in the book, so many parables, that it would be hard to pick my favorite sections. Even if you are older than 16, and do not have children, I still recommend this book. I first read it as a college student, after my younger brother (then in high school) sent me a copy as a Christmas gift, and my only regret was that I had discovered it, as well as the rest of the Chronicles of Anthopos before. I read the first 3 books in this series while in college, as recreational reading, then read the last 2 when my 3 children were in their fantasy phase, sometimes to them, sometimes to myself. I hope that someone makes all 5 books into movies someday, like they have done with the first 3 books in the Narnia series.
I hope this helps you in picking your next book to read.

Like C.S. Lewis, John White has also written some wonderful helpful non fiction books, including The Fight and Eros Defiles, both of which I found helpful in my Christian walk.
May God bless you,

I love this series! This is the third time I have read it, or maybe more but it is exciting every time and I always learn something new. I highly recommend these books.
Great Series!
I liked the Archives of Anthropos. Very similar feel to The Chronicles of Narnia but I found them easier to read. The Chronicles of Narnia was very ... English in its writing style.
It's interesting, emotional and thrilling, although not as good as "The Tower of Geburah" it's pretty good. Four Stars. Bye
My hubby's mom pulled the three books in this series from her stash of some of his fave's when he was younger. It is so hard to find godly reading material in fiction for my two tweens. These three books held my rapt attention all the way through (had to fight my 11 year old for the second book... ;)). White deals in this book with human weaknesses and temptations in a fascinating way that keeps kids and adults alike interested to the end. His understanding of God's love and grace in the midst of human weakness is evident and honestly this is the best series I've ever read for tweens that is "up there" in my book with C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia. I hope they keep this in print. I'm buying the first of the series for my girls' friends.
At first, I was turned off by how much of a rip-off of Narnia this was. But get into it, and you realize it has a style all its own. Gaal, the semi-mortal Christ-figure, is a majestic, personal character, sometimes cryptic and sometimes playful. Murmia, the evil-personified figure, is no crystalline icecube like the White Witch, but is a seductive, appealing magician; and beneath her beautiful exterior is a rotting,decrepit hag. Pervading this whole book is the new character Mary's search for beauty and acceptance, and Murmia plays upon this and recruits Mary to her side. Only Gaal can take the girl back for himself. Also appealing, though certainly nothing new in fiction-writing, is the thoughtful intertwining of several plotlines at once, which atone for White's clever yet mediocre style of writing. Characterization is one of the strenghts of "The Iron Sceptre."
I was glued to this book. the story line is very good, and there is a perfect amount of excitement. the plot is allegorical; it gives a deep example of people's struggle to fight evil... I really suggest this book to people who are looking for a good story.
