"Lorilyn Roberts has painted an amazing picture of Biblical times. I could really feel what Daniel was feeling. What also appealed to me is the sprinkling of romance in The King when I wasn't expecting it. Roberts blends mystery, drama, history, romance, the Bible, and humor in a story that is entertaining and meaningful." - Courtney Grable, age 13
"Lorilyn Roberts is an awesome storyteller with a wonderful imagination. The King is easy to follow but is never predictable. I wanted to keep reading to find out what Daniel would find out next." - Cameron Presson, age 16
"Worship‑that the world offers gold, fame, respect, and adoration to those foolish enough to fall for its temptations. Romance‑that we are God's temple and are to remain pure and undefiled by casual sexual relations. That God wants us to save ourselves for marriage. Ambition‑that pursuing personal desires and goals that do not consider Him first actually regulate Him to second in our lives, and that to our detriment.Salvation‑that God offers the only way to be saved." - Ronald, Wakulla Book Review

I must admit, given the audience for whom it is written, I find it a bit much. I was seriously considering having my daughter, who is 12, to read this series with me..... - the Door was an exceptional read. This one has shown me very valid points, but for an emerging believer, this might actually prove scary.
For an adult, who wants to read a compelling story, about the greatness of God, and how evil can compel us, and draw us in.....a very good read. I can highly suggest it. The writing style sure is very compelling. I enjoyed every minute of it.
Now I have to read book 3, to find out, if maybe only Book 2 is less suitable for a young teen reader.
Secondly, in reviewing this book in the young adult fantasy genre I should be quick to point out that I am not a young adult. However I do fantasize often about being a young adult again; but I suspect that is not what is meant by the term young adult fantasy. In all seriousness, I'm still young at heart and I enjoyed Lorilyn Robert's exceptional book. And my enjoyment of the book also means that one does not have to be a teenager to enjoy this book. And I'll add to all that my opinion that this is a book that parents and young people could both read and enjoy discussing it.
Here is the challenge that I believe Roberts meets head-on and is successful: how to write historical fiction for young people that is both solid in its historical grounding and imaginative in its story telling. Historical fiction for young people can take some poetic liberty with details & facts, and can welcome fantasy, science fiction, romance, and magic. This can be especially true with Biblical history in which the narrative can be more of a summary than an elaboration.
In "The King" Roberts enables Daniel, a modern Israeli teenager, to time travel to 1st century Israel and experience adventures, danger, romance, and insight. Along the way some big questions get answered and a mystery is solved. But I believe good Christian fiction (and non-fiction) doesn't try to answer all the questions the protagonist has but leaves some necessary room for the character(s) to wrestle with the answers to the bigger questions which in turn invites the reader to engage the big questions also. Daniel must figure out for himself what is real and must figure how to convince others. It seems to me that is a lifelong task for teens and adults of any age-- to determine what is real and then strive to share the discovery. Roberts artfully gives her character Daniel a wonderful setting, a great supporting cast, and a grand journey to work out that personal mission.
There are so many elements of the story that I loved that I am not sure where to begin! The character development was extraordinary! I felt like I knew both Shale and Daniel and I saw myself in their struggles and their achievements! I LOVED the animals as well and how intertwined they became throughout the story.
I also was so impressed by the vivid imagery that Roberts created! I could see everything so clearly as I read through the story which just added another layer of excellence and depth to the tale. While I loved all of the aforementioned aspects of "The King" , what was most important to me was the development of their individual spiritual journeys. This is what makes this so much more than a great story...there is something that everyone will find that they can relate to in their own relationship with God. I am sure I am not the only one who would liked to have met Jesus 2000 years ago...the mastery and God given talent that has been written in these pages has allowed me to do that....I absolutely loved this book and I hope that everyone who reads it will be blessed by the story as I have been! This is not just a story ....it's an adventure and experience I won't soon forget!
Daniel, a young boy who lives in Israel in the middle of a war, wishes to become a doctor. Although his family is Jewish, Daniel isn’t sure if he believes in God. Until something impossible happens. He opens a door and he is literally transported back to the time when Rome ruled and Jesus of Nazareth was alive. There he encounters his students, his followers and his haters but ultimately he witnesses his miracles. Daniel is left with a choice: believe what he sees or listen to the lies and the deception that will define his future.
I don’t usually read books like this one. Actually I generally avoid religion books but I was wrong about this one. Although there is a great deal of religion, it isn’t the main point. Daniel is transported to the Seventh Dimension not to believe in God but to believe in himself. To learn himself and make decisions that will affect his future. Daniel was such a courageous, brilliant and brave young man. He truly inspired me.
What I loved in this book though was the division between the people in that era. I loved seeing how people of that time responded to the events. I loved the way the author described the events.
A fantasy book about time travel, religion but mostly about insight and self awareness.
