Excellent Book!! Review: Martyr's Fire

Book 3 in the Merlin’s Immortals series continues the story of Thomas as begun in The Orphan King and Fortress of Mist.

Fifteen men who call themselves the Priests of the Holy Grail arrive in Magnus, bringing with them supposed “miracles” and taking control of the castle.

Barely escaping, Thomas begins a journey that will take him to the Holy Land, where he hopes to find answers to his questions. But on the way, Thomas runs into unexpected circumstances. Will the Holy Land hold the answers that Thomas seeks?

This book was just as good, if not better than the previous two. I was glued to the pages! These books are incredibly well-written, excellent reading. I would heartily recommend this book as well as the rest of the series. I can’t wait to read the next one.

I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!

Review: An Untamed Heart

Having previously read and LOVED Lauraine Snelling's Red River and Blessing books, I was SO excited to get this book.

The first half of the book seemed almost choppy and was hard to get into, but the second half was excellent and made up for the first half. Having read all the other books in the series, I really liked having the chance to read the prequel and discover the backstory to Ingeborg's decision to go to America.

I would recommend An Untamed Heart, especially to anyone who enjoys good historical fiction or to anyone who has read the Red River of the North series and the continuing books.

I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!

Review: Burning Sky

Wow! This book was EXCELLENT!

Willa Obenchain was captured by Mohawk Indians when she was fourteen and adopted into one of their clans. Twelve years later, after the death of her family from a smallpox outbreak, Willa returns to her family's land, on her way discovering a wounded man who she feels responsible to bring back to health.

Upon arriving at her former home, Willa discovers the barn burned down, the house empty and the yard grown up- and her missing parents suspected of being Tories...

This was an awesome book. It was written with so much depth and character. I was really impressed with Lori Benton's writing. I loved this book. I highly recommend it!

Thank you so much to WaterBrook Multnomah for sending me a free copy of Burning Sky in exchange for an honest review.
