Whoa, this was much more of an emotional journey compared to DEFIER. While reading book one I was tearing up, SPARROW had me trying not to bawl (and not just at the end either!). The way certain things happen was so unexpected and didn't see coming, but I LOVE how strong Lennox was in standing in her faith at the end. Truly she was a beacon of hope and encouraged me to NEVER give up and ALWAYS have faith in our Heavenly Father (no matter how dark it may seem).
Though the romance is not a huge part of this novel, the author writes it so beautifully. There is no kissing, but yet you can truly see the love Lennox has for Sky. One of my favorite parts of this story.
Also, I strongly enjoyed learning more about Sparrow tech in this one as well as the training. It's a lot of fun to read about! (Unfortunately, I will not expand on this because I don't want to even remotely risk spoiling it. *winks*)
Looking forward to reading book three, CONQUEROR, and hoping alongside Lennox that things will turn around concerning a certain situation. Though no matter what, book three is sure to be just as powerful and encouraging.
I could not put it down!
This book has everything---
adventure, intrigue, romance, ruthless villains, action-packed battle sequences, heart-warming friendships, tragedies and triumphs.
It's all expertly woven into an incredible saga you will want to immerse yourself in again and again.
The heroine of SPARROW, Lennox Winters, is a woman driven by conviction, motivated by loved and powered by faith.
She is strong, yet vulnerable; loyal yet an independent thinker; skilled yet teachable; young yet equipped with wisdom beyond her years.
Lennox is also a work-in-progress, as this story perfectly illustrates.
From Chapter 1, I was drawn in to Lennox's adventures.
I felt as if I were adventuring right beside her.
The story is beyond entertaining;
It is moving and inspiring.
I absolutely love Lennox and I absolutely love this book!
I wholeheartedly recommend it!

Lennox Winters is now a Sparrow soldier, living in a protected base along with her friend, Sky, brother, Oliver, and other resisters. The Regime is still hard at work, spreading their evil across the world. Time is running out. Lennox and her friends must find Lennox and Oliver's mother's locket, embedded with a secret chip, and destroy the Regime's plan.
Sparrow is a story of faith and sorrow. Evil and victory. I love how Many Fender always points back to God and relying on His strength. Lennox and the others must learn to trust God with everything - their lives, and the lives of those they love. Beautiful theme of faith and hope and trust.
We get some dystopian technology and whatnot, which is always fun for me! The genre of dystopian is almost like a form of fantasy. Authors imagine what our world could be like in the future, and make up all kinds of weird and interesting things. *grins* So that was enjoyable.
There's action and battles. Pain and fear. Some characters we love get hit hard. Things are so very uncertain ... but Sparrow ends on a note of hope and determination. Things are not over. Lennox will not stop fighting. God is still on the throne.
I look forward to reading book three, the conclusion to the DEFIER series, Conqueror!
I received a copy of Sparrow from the author in exchange for my honest review.
First, Lennox is a most realistic heroin. She’s not perfect, yet she’s extremely likable. Her confidence and vulnerability during training and, eventually, war are well-balanced. Second, the hints of romance nicely accentuate some of the reasons we go to war…for the right to maintain faith and experience love...without overpowering the story. Third, the demonstration of the battle between good and bad within ourselves, particularly as it relates to the male hero, cause much reflection of one’s own choices.
If you're looking for a hopeful dystopian story inspired by the Christian worldview, SPARROW will not disappoint. Your heartstrings will be tugged, and your faith will be inspired.
