Kien Lantec, you will bear witness to my followers in ToronSea.

The last thing Kien Lantec expects on his first day of military leave is to receive marching orders from his Creator, the Infinite. Orders that don't involve destroyer-racing or courting the love of his life, Ela. Adding to Kien's frustration, his Infinite-ordained duties have little to do with his skills as a military judge-in-training. His mission? To warn the people of ToronSea against turning their backs on the Infinite to worship a new goddess.

Tell them I see they are beguiled. Tell them I seek their hearts. The wise will hear Me.

But why Kien? Isn't this the role of a true prophet, such as Ela of Parne? Seeking answers, Kien visits Ela and finds her stricken by a devastating vision of her own. Her birthplace, Parne, has forsaken their Creator and will soon suffer judgment. Pulled in separate ways, each must seek to follow the Infinite's leading...and hope He will reunite them again soon.

Child of dust, will you be My servant?

If you would like to read the first chapter of , go HERE.

My thoughts:  Again, this is probably not a book I would pick up and buy off the shelf.  It's just not the type that I normally read.  But I did read it. . . and I loved it!  I now want to go back and find the book that came before and search for more coming after as I have fallen in love with these characters and want to learn more about them and follow them in their lives.  I want to know what fate awaits Kien and Ela!

I received a copy of this for free to read as part of the CFBA. However, all opinions in this post are mine and not influenced by others. I was not compensated in anyway for this review other than a copy of the book Pin It Now!


  1. looks worth reading. next week I'll search it at my local book store :D

  2. I have to agree again, not something I would have chosen but it seems that the more I try new things, the more I learn and find new interests.

  3. I've been trying to choose books lately that I wouldn't normally read. It seems like I read the same stories over and over. I'm ready for something new and different. I am going to check this one out.
