Akabe of Siphra, I have brought your enemies low and lifted you from the dirt.
Against his wishes and desires, Akabe Garric has been chosen by his people to be king. A warrior at heart, he’d never dreamed of such a swift, unexpected rise to power. Determined to prove his worth to the citizens of Munra and honor his Creator, Akabe undertakes a monumental task: to rebuild the Infinite’s Holy House in Siphra.
Only this I ask: Restore My temple and let Me dwell again among the people.
Akabe soon discovers that the land he needs is held by the Thaenfalls, known Atea-worshipers who will give up their claim only if he marries into their line. Though he seeks direction from the Infinite, his pleas are met with silence. Frustrated, Akabe makes an impulsive decision, sweeping his nation into a lethal storm that threatens his plans for the temple. As questions of love and faith become tangled with lies, ancient feuds, and treacherous plots, can Akabe, his mysterious queen, and his trusted friends Ela and Kien Lantec find the Infinite’s path…or will they fail as so many others before?
Will your faith hold strong when I am silent?
Child, can you be My king?
KING by R. J. Larson is the amazing third book in the Infinite Book Series. Larson is a great storyteller, and that shows in all of his books. I liked the characters and the way they struggle with the same things in the story that people struggle with today. And Larson does an excellent job of weaving the truths of the Scripture throughout the lives of these characters. This is a good clean story, and one that would be a really good read for any young person.
Being a fantasy fan, KING went beyond my expectations and I highly recommend you read this book if you are a fan of fantasy Christian fiction. You will miss a great read if you miss this book. And I would buy the first two books in this series too, because it makes the story a lot better.
