My thoughts:

Son of Truth immediately sweeps the reader to where Daughter of Light left off. I enjoyed the read immensely, and had to hide the book so other members of my family wouldn’t swipe it.

Often the second book in a series is rather lackluster. Not so with Son of Truth. Riveting, intriguing, and enjoyable, I highly recommend this book.

My thoughts:

Daughter of Light is now one of my favorite books in the fantasy genre. I could not get enough of it and was barely able to put it down. Daughter of Light is a quick paced, action packed, page turner. It is a definite must read.

From the end of the first paragraph to the last word in the book, I was hooked. If you’re looking for a wholesome, Christian, entertaining read, here you go.

 

Fear punched her in the stomach. Rowen stumbled away from the rocks…What had happened? Had the assassins – No! Rowen shook her head in an effort to clear away the shock. She needed to be focused. Here. Now.
