That’s the question Kien Lantec must answer in the second book of the Books Of The Infinite series. Is he the Infinite’s servant no matter what, even when he is being asked to do something out of his comfort zone? This military judge is about to become a prophet for his Creator, and a slightly reluctant one at that. Meanwhile Parne’s Prophet, Ela Roeh, has seen a vision of the destruction of her home and must return to save her people.
Kien and Ela go their separate ways as they do the will of the Infinite. Kien learns that being a prophet is not very easy and requires absolute surrender of his will. His disobedience lands him a less than pleasant ride inside a sea monster. Ela feels the heartbreak of learning the people she grew up with have been slowly turning from the Infinite to worship false gods.
R.J. Larson has done a wonderful job, again, of taking a “fantasy” world and using it as a way for us to feel what the prophets of the Old Testament may have felt as they did the will of their Creator. The elation of success when people hear the Word of the LORD and do His will and the utter devastation when one sees loved ones turn from God. This is an absolutely engaging story; I couldn’t wait to get through the story to see what would happen next, but at the same time, hated to finish it!
I am greatly looking forward to next installment, King. I am also glad to know that I’m not the only one who wants their own Destroyer!For more information about this book--click here-- or on the title above!
