NORA’S REVIEW: I was hooked by this Robin Hood type story from the first page. This story is written through Alexia’s point of view. She protects the forest like Robin Hood did.Having gone to Catholic church and had first communion there I could relate to both main characters and their biblical view point.
This is the first paragraph, “Alexia D’Clere slide an arrow from her quiver, nocked it in her bow, and drew back the bowstring wind whipped through the branches of the large maple tree above her, stirring a whirlwind of leaves and needless across the forest floor. But Alexia’s gaze followed three men a top horses, accompanying a coach down an access road through Emerald forest – the three men who had ventured off the main trail and dared to penetrate the circle of the Spear. To what purpose?”
Alexia looks forward to the“day when everyone will be able to read the bible.”
Ronar doesn’t know what to think about this thought. No one was allowed to touch the bible let along read it. I liked this aspect of the story because I went through the same process.
This is a suspense story filled with action and venture as good vs evil. There’s a spiritual struggle with flawed characters the author has you root for as they fight the good fight for faith, love and family through unbearable hardships. There is also a sweet romance story in the middle of all the drama. This makes for an adventurous read and one that would work well for your next book club pick.
