Though the start is a little slow this book still grabbed my attention right at the start and the story soon picks up in pace. I especially loved how easy it was to learn a little history right along with the main character. I learned a few historical things that I didn't know before. There is also plenty to think about as the heroine follows her hero's journey. The author includes and integrates many historical and scriptural thoughts and elements. There are plenty of moments where I stopped reading thinking 'wow, I never thought about it like that before'. Now that I am finished there are even a few things that I want to go look up and think about a bit more.
I am ready right now for the next one, but, it isn't out yet. Guess I am stuck hungry for more!
