She must protect the Spear of Destiny at all costs
He must bring the lady safely home
But the powers of darkness chasing them have other ideas
Lady Cristiana D'Clere, the new protector of the Spear, is on the run from the steward of her estate, who has kept her drugged for years. All she ever wanted was to be safe, marry well, and raise a bevy of wee ones. Instead, she is far from home, chased by men intent on killing her and stealing the Spear of Christ for its incredible powers.
Sir Jarin the Just has never forgotten the woman who stirred his heart like no other. Determined to find and restore her to her proper place as Lady of Luxley Castle, he sets out on a journey fraught with more dangers than he ever could have foreseen. The biggest danger is to his heart, for he has vowed to remain unfettered and never surrender his freedom to a woman.
Though the Spear protects the couple along their journey, Cristiana must learn to trust the One whose blood stains the relic, while Jarin must learn to rely on powers far above his own knightly skills. For the dark magic that is chasing them may take all the powers of heaven to defeat.
A truly enchanting tale!! and in a way much more different than what I"m used to reading by this author. But overall, it was very enjoyable!! I couldn't put the book down!! I burned some midnight light reading this book and let me tell you reader friends!! Some of this book really made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck!! Wow!!
This book is 2nd in the Protectors of the Spear series. This book will make you want to sit on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.
The character are wonderful!! but, there are some who will be shady in this story too
Marylu is a wonderful writer and knows how to tell a story to make you believe that you are actually in the book with Christiana D' Clere is truly a heroine. She's my heroine because I love her kind, caring and vulnerable ways in which she uses the spear. She uses it for the good to help others.
I like that she has a very strong love for God. There are times that she feels undeserving of His love but, then don't we all? Are we not all a work in progress?
I love how this author portrays good and evil and shows that there are dark forces all around us. These are the same evil forces that has run her off from all that she has loved.
I love the knight Sir Jarin. I love it that he wants to step in a help in any way he can to set things right.
Just this past week our preacher preached on darkness. I think Marylu and my preacher Joe got together and discussed or hashed it out because I read a passage in where if the forces may seem very dark. He even shut his little flashlight off and all the other lights were turned off too. When he shown the flashlight, there was only a small small point of light. It was so dark that no a one of could see the other person!! Not even the one next to us!! Now that was sort of scary!!
But, when he turned that little flashlight, it gave us hope. If that hope can get through then the darkness will run away Hallelujah!!
I agree that money is the root of all evil. I think that it is the way people use it against each other. It can also leave you wanting for more until you are just never satisfied.
God never leaves us but we walk away from He thinking that we can do things on our own. Not true!! What is that old saying Pride goeth before a fall?
There is also a hidden message in this awesome book too! I love messages like that!
There's this little saying that we can do things all through Christ if we turn unto Him.
I enjoyed watching Christiana grow and learn about our Savior's love. His love is the sweetest gift that we can ever receive!!
I encourage you my reading friends that if you don't know Christ please find someone that can lead you to Him!! You'll be glad you did!! I know I am!!
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. No compensations were received and all opinions are my own!
