Probably thousands of years since the world, as we know it now, has gone, and the new civilization started a new circle of life. Too bad that not all the people adapted the peace-loving way of life of Kiya and Raphel’s village. The blood-thirsty Northmen came to their land, led by their leader Alaric, the Chosen, who is searching for a woman to fulfill his High Priest’s prophesy. Alaric rapes and kidnaps Kiya to bring her back to his land, but Kiya’s husband Raphel follows the northern giant to bring his beloved back home… Their way will not be an easy one, filled with pain and anguish along the way, but it’s their love that can turn even the most merciless killer onto their side.
This book is so engaging because it makes the readers contemplate their choices in today’s society, and many messages in the story resonate with today’s world issues. Wonderful job!
I found this to be a breathtaking adventure. Some part were tough for me to read, and the overall mood is dark and dramatic, but very captivating. I liked the idea of the future / past synchronicity, and how the author depicts the future of humanity as a reference to the ancient times. It makes you think whether history cyclically repeats itself. I also enjoyed the spiritual tone to it, and the nicely weaved in ecological messages.
I could feel the expertise and diligent work of the author, and sensed how much she worked on developing the story’s world and the characters. Hats off to her work!
I think this book will please readers who like epic, dramatic dystopian novels with a strong message.
The people of the north are worshipers of a war god. The ruling priest sends his followers to the south to bring back a woman who will bear the Gift. Alaric the Chosen kidnaps and rapes Kiya. Her husband Raphel tries to get her back, but gets captured himself. He, too, is included in the prophecy--as the blood for the sacrifice. Will their friend, the old man Abe, be able to save them from the Northerners' fate? Will God--any of their gods--intervene?
The story is engaging and makes you rethink what you know about the second coming. A nice twist on the as-yet-to-happen event, and a twist at the end that's sure to please.
What I loved most about the books is the proverbs and sayings at the beginning of each chapter. Some are quite hilarious; others thought-provoking.
