The story takes a bit to set up, but when it does happen, it is fun and inspiring. This is a strong Christian story, and makes no apologies about its message. The best part of the story is the characterization of David and Aurora, and the way their love is portrayed. For even though this is a Christian story, these two aren’t prudish, and the sexual tension is obvious. I was curious how the author would deal with the wedding night, which was a long time coming, but it was tastefully and realistically handled.
The biggest problem I found with the book was its apparent and desperate need for an editor. But my understanding is that it was going through the editing process as I read it, so that is an encouraging thing to hear.
This is the beginning of a series, and the author set it up well. Part of the challenge of writing a series (which I know well) is to come to some conclusion with the first book, and yet leave enough unresolved to give you fodder for the rest of the books. And I found myself looking forward to those books.
If you like Christian fantasy, or Christian romance, or both, pick this book up. You’ll like it.
