Book Review: The King's Scrolls

Summary: Following the harrowing events that brought them to Landale Forest, Jace and Kyrin have settled comfortably into their new lives and the mission of protecting those under the emperor's persecution. The fast approach of winter brings with it the anticipation of a quiet few months ahead. That is until the arrival of four mysterious, dragon-riding cretes who seek aid in a mission of great importance--not only to their own people, but to all followers of Elôm.
   Hidden in the vast mining valley north of Valcré, a faithful crete has spent years sharing his knowledge with the destitute miners and their families and is known to possess what may be Arcacia's last surviving copies of the King's Scrolls--the Word of Elôm. Joining the cretes, those in Landale must find the crete teacher and bring him to safety, but it is a race against time. Should Daican's men find him first, execution and the destruction of the Scrolls is certain.
   When disaster strikes, all seems lost. Could Elôm have a plan even in the enemy's triumph?

Thoughts: I LOVE THESE BOOKS!!!! Ahem. The Illyon Chronicles took us by surprise as romance isn't really our thing, but this series has everything and more that we look for in a book: a Christian aspect, clean adventure, a sweet but not overriding romance, and a child or two, complete with diverse and well made characters! You really can't go wrong here. I'll admit that I have, despite being a girl myself, very few favorite heroines. Nowadays they are too strong and pushy or just lack any depth, sometimes both, but Kyrin is different. Maybe that's because she's got a wonderful twin to contrast with her, a combination I've dreamed of and have as yet to find anywhere else, and then her and Jace are too cute! Every girl, even the most hardcore romantic, ought to appreciate they're sweet 'friendship' which I'm simply waiting to quickly move into more! We also get some new characters in here, Timothy and his brother Aaron along with their guardian were interesting characters though I admit to being slightly bored with most of their story in the beginning, it got better though! Over all, this is a great sequel to Resistance and HIGHLY recmmended for all you fantasy readers!

Content: Violence but otherwise perfectly clean.
