This series is filled with intrigue and intensity. You will not be able to put these books down until you read the last book of the trilogy which brings everything together!
Warning: This is not a book for younger teens or those who do not want to read about the practices of the Druids.
My son, David, and I decided to read these aloud for fun. And we have enjoyed every page. In fact, we have stayed up many nights to keep reading. Although the story is a fantasy, it actually is based during the time of the Druids in England during the Middle Ages. The author, Jeremiah Montgomery, presents his story with new names and a new world, but his research into this time-period is spot-on. He describes some horrible sacrificial practices of the evil ones in this story. And that can be gruesome, which is why I have mentioned the warning above. But what I love about this story is that the evil ones are shown to be the false teachers that they are and God is shown to be sovereign and powerful. We hope you will love this story as much as we have!
From the Publisher:
The ancient Dark Faith was destroyed long ago. Or so they thought…
Morumus was but a boy when the murderous shadow of the Dark Faith fell upon his family. Now a devout monk, Morumus has been given the task of his life: translate Holy Writ into the language of those who practice the Dark Faith. His translation could be a great, sweeping sword, used to break its power! But as Morumus and two fellow monks begin the task, dark currents drag them toward a dangerous conspiracy. Shadows from his past appearâ€”in his sleep, on a lonely road, even on the cover of an old book. Coincidence? Or something more sinister? Can Morumus find the secret to vanquish the Dark Faith? Or will he once more lose everythingâ€”even his life?
Jeremiah W. Montgomery is the pastor of Resurrection Presbyterian Church (OPC) in State College, Pennsylvania. He has been an engineer, an essayist, and a pipemaker. He and his wife have four sons who love to read and a little girl who cannot wait to begin.
