I'm sad and thankful this series is over. Sad because I truly loved these characters and will miss reading about them (I could imagine they'll be in my head for a while though). However, I'm thankful it is too because that ending was worth everything I saw these characters go through.
Them holding onto their faith was worth it.
Them expelling fear was worth it.
Truly, this book was most likely my favorite out of the series.
However, I was surprised by the ending originally, but after sitting there with the last page read, I realized it was just what I needed. It spoke so much more powerfully then I could have ever thought or imagined. It also encouraged me too.
We also get to see old friends again! It definitely bolstered me just as much as it did Lennox.
Lastly, but certainly not least, we also see more of the true testimony of the Word of God. He truly is not a liar and this book (even though fictional) is a testament of that.
If you enjoy reading, I definitely encourage readers to check it out, even if you don't like dystopian. It's powerful and is a story that's not going to leave my mind anytime soon. I could imagine it will be the same for other readers too.
*(I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts expressed are my own and was not required to write a positive review.)*
The bad guy is still horrific. The danger is compelling and believable. The blurb:
Lennox is a wonderful main character—vulnerable and inspiring. The entire group called to resist the Regime is a blessing to read about. The story brings hope and joy. it has a wonderful conclusion.
Definitely Christian Dystopian Fiction Conqueror
It’s a joy to read a solidly Christian adventure novel. I’m so tired of heathen tales—especially the ones posing as Christian fiction. This book does not disappoint.
I awarded Mandy the Redemptive award, both for this book and for the series. It is very well done, clearly Christian, and inspiring. You will enjoy it, your kids will like it. It would probably even make a good discussion book for a youth group.
I’m grateful Mandy sent me a free review copy. It did not affect the review in any way.
What a plot line though! Conqueror was beautifully written, was full of action that kept me turning the pages until 2am, and made me cry a few times (in a good way). *sniffles* My favorite part in the whole book was the ending. It was such a curve ball that I just sat there thinking, ‘How on earth did this happen’. But it was the perfect ending to a perfect book.
My favorite side-character was Elise. (Okay, maybe I’m a little biased...) I won a contest and was rewarded with a character in Mandy’s book. It was such an honor and I enjoyed reading about the girl I wish I could be. Just think about: fight bad guys with a bow and arrow?! Who doesn’t want to do that?! *what can I say*
I only had one downfall for this series. I do believe constructive criticism is a good thing. Lennox goes through a lot in these three books. She is one strong lady! The problem is the conflict. The books are quick to resolve her problems, such as doubt or fear. As a reader, I believe the story line would’ve been even better if Lennox took one whole book to truly understand her faith, or something like that. It would’ve kept that suspense in any of the three books. In Conqueror, the main conflict was the Regime, so it wasn’t as noticeable here. Just speaking for the series as a whole. *cheesy smile* Hope that made sense....
Overall, it was one of the best YA Dystopian series I’ve ever read. The deep Christian themes are what pulled me in and made me want to live a life pleasing to God. It changed my view on fear and gave me courage in my personal life. Thank you Mandy Fender for writing these books. I’m forever changed. *hearts* I look forward to more of your work.
