Prophet - A Review
It's hard to break into Christian fantasy. Yet, I feel that R. J. Larson has written a novel that does just that - break into Christian fantasy with a fresh voice. Early into the book, around the third page, I was captivated. My personal favorite character Was Ela's destroyer horse, Pet. The way that Pet protected her and was reluctant to let her out of his sight was quite funny. Even when Pet had been ordered to obey Kein. I recognized several Old Testament prophets and their stories in Ela's story. One thing that I picked up on, was that Ela understood the depths of her Creator's love. And she realized that she was worthless without Him.
I'm looking forward to book 2, Judge.
I recommend this book to Christian fantasy fans, fans of JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Brandon Sanderson, and fantasy lovers everywhere.
I received this book for free from the publisher, Bethany House, for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
