"Judge" Book Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Bethany House Publishers (November 1, 2012)
R.J. Larson

     I love this series of books! Prophet was wonderful and Judge is a tremendous follow up. I love the return of all the characters from the first book and the new dimensions of who they are. I think my favorite part was seeing the parallel to Jonah with Kien Lantec - that was awesome! Love the romance that is destined to fail, and I absolutely bawled through part of the book but I can't tell you why. I can just say that my husband tried to console me and I was practically inconsolable. I loved revisiting Kien and Ela in this book and honestly I can't wait until the next book comes out!


R. J. Larson is the author of numerous devotionals featured in publications such as Women's Devotional Bible and Seasons of a Woman's Heart. She lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with her husband and their two sons. Prophet marks her debut in the fantasy genre.


Kien Lantec, you will bear witness to my followers in ToronSea.

The last thing Kien Lantec expects on his first day of military leave is to receive marching orders from his Creator, the Infinite. Orders that don't involve destroyer-racing or courting the love of his life, Ela. Adding to Kien's frustration, his Infinite-ordained duties have little to do with his skills as a military judge-in-training. His mission? To warn the people of ToronSea against turning their backs on the Infinite to worship a new goddess.

Tell them I see they are beguiled. Tell them I seek their hearts. The wise will hear Me.

But why Kien? Isn't this the role of a true prophet, such as Ela of Parne? Seeking answers, Kien visits Ela and finds her stricken by a devastating vision of her own. Her birthplace, Parne, has forsaken their Creator and will soon suffer judgment. Pulled in separate ways, each must seek to follow the Infinite's leading...and hope He will reunite them again soon.

Child of dust, will you be My servant?
