King- R. J. Larson- Tour and Giveaway

My Thoughts: Can we follow God in faith even when he seems silent to our prayers? This is something that we often struggle with and that Larson approaches in her newest novel, King. For me, the lessons of this novel are much more applicable to my life and I enjoyed that aspect.

As to the story itself, the beginning seemed slow. It was a good portion of the book before the action began. While somethings happened in the part that I had been waiting for since book one, they seemed either too drawn out or too rushed.

Once passed the beginning, I enjoyed the story, lost once again in the escapades of Ela the Prophet. The ending was by far my favorite of the trilogy. I wish that there were more to the store. Maybe she can write a follow up series. *Crosses fingers.*

My Rating: 3.5 Stars

King by R.J. Larson Fantasy Meets the Old Testament in a Novel That Will Reach Readers of All Ages. Against his wishes and desires, Akabe of Siphra has been chosen by his people to be King. But what does a warrior know of ruling during peacetime? Guided by the Infinite, Akabe seeks to rebuild the Temple in the city of Munra to give the sacred books of Parne a home. But dangerous factions are forming in the background. To gain the land he needs, Akabe must forsake the yearnings of his heart and instead align himself through marriage to the Thaenfall family. Meanwhile, Kien Lantec and Ela Roeh are drawn still closer together...while becoming pawns in a quest to gain power over the region. As questions of love and faith become tangled with lies and murderous plots, each must seek the Infinite to guide them through an ever more tangled web of intrigue and danger.
