Talk about trusting others with your life! Thomas has to do just that while on a quest to save the kingdom of Magnus from the horrible suffering inflicted upon the citizens by corrupt and evil leaders.
The novel, The Orphan King, Book One Merlin’s Immortals, is a well written, want to know more about everyone, adventure and Sigmund Brouwer does a fantastic job of holding your interest. He kept mine. Read the book in one day. Thomas, an orphan raised by hypocritical and abusive monks, suddenly decides one day that it’s time he left and fulfill a destiny that’s been laid out before him. And so he does.
The cast of characters are rather peculiar but they do aid in the mission that Thomas has succeed in. A man who likes to steal, a young lady who is both deaf and mute, a knight, hmmm, interesting group of people who help Thomas with his faith in others and in God Himself. Thomas is kind of savior, who delivers people from being held prisoner and inspires them to take a stand against their persecutors. You’ll see what I mean when you read the book. Lesson? God has plans for everyone, we just have to read the instruction manual for the clues.
I received this free copy from Waterbrook Press in exchange for reviewing it.
