The King's Heir Reviews
Scriptural historical fiction is one of my favorite genres, and this was another book by an author I enjoyed in the past, (a Goodreads notification), so I decided to find it and read it. It was satisfying, except the 14 year span it covered was sometimes a bit choppy, (specifically the mission of the sons of Mosiah). Also, the summary on the inside made reference to an experience that doesn't happen for MANY of those years, and I kept waiting for it to happen, but had to wait and wait. Finally, just a personal beef, I don't think that the two main characters should have had the graying hair it referenced, at not quite 40 years old. That's still plenty young, even for that day and age.But it was still satisfying, and fun to read. I love a good vs evil story where righteousness prevails!
I really liked this book.
I enjoyed the character development of known and fictitious characters from the Book of Mormon. This a book that you should read if you enjoyed the Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites
I love reading scripture books! It makes me excited to read the scriptures, although this one wasn't that historically accurate.
I wrote this book because of a suggestion from my publisher. It had never occured to me to write a prequel to The Birthright, but I'm glad I did! As I wrote this book, I had in mind the idea that I wanted people to see real love at work. Not just romantic love, though that is a part of it. But real, genuine, unselfish love with no expectation of any personal reward. Such love, that under the right circumstances can evolve into romantic love, or just as naturally into friendly love, depending on the circumstances and needs of the characters. In this story, Aaron is leaving on a mission to the Lamanites, and Sarah, unsure if she will see him again, must deal with the pressure of other eligible young men- and the threat of Ahiah who is determined to have her at all costs. Among her suitors is Caleb whom she cares for, but only as a brother. Her cousin Rebekah has feelings for Caleb, but is he determined to love only Sarah?
Oh boy, this book needs an editor! i LOVE Book of Mormon fiction...this story seemed to have such promise with the beautiful descriptions, depth, and era-appropriate spoken language. But the absence of an editor became apparent pretty quickly. I wanted to give up several times but kept going. I made it past 100 pages and finally got frustrated when Alma was suddenly mentioned as being married to a small side character when it was assumed he was single...I read on to get more explaination to this sudden revelation, but didn't get it. I also kept getting confused and the story didn't always flow well. Too many run-on sentences and preoccupation with "hair tumbling over slender shoulders, chiseled lips, and youthful beards". Wayyy tooooo many unnessesary words, man!
I loved the cover! The story line was all right, though a bit simplistic. But how many times can you use the same metaphor for different people? All the girls had delicate features and narrow shoulders with hair that shines like polished wood and all the men are muscular with broad shoulders and tall and lean with hair that falls out of place and is tied back. The only variations were hair color and eye color. (different metaphors - brown like a doe's eyes or flashing green emeralds) It kind of got on my nerves. She went a little on and on about describing the stars and the moon and.....
