The Ruby Moon-Good Story, More Twists

The Ruby Moon-Good Story, More Twists

The Ruby Moon is the next book in the series that began with The Glass Castle. This is a book written for tweens and teens. It picks up right where they left off and has a few added twists; such as many of the teens that were kidnapped are disappearing with no signs whatsoever. As the remaining group tries to figure out where they are going a variety of storylines take shape.

Avery is now set to run in the race for the kingdom, there is a general understanding that they are no longer safe where they are and may need to move. Avery is also beginning to explore on her own and has quite an adventure and further learning of the truth on one such exploration. Kendrick has now trusted Avery with his secret and Avery learns some unforeseen truths about her mother.

The book moves the story along and has another twist at the end that you will not see coming. Overall I like the message of the book, I would have liked to see more overt messaging about God but the undertones are there.  I am looking forward to the final installment, The Paper Boat, due out in the spring 2017 to see exactly how the whole story comes to an end.

This book was given to me by NetGalley in EBook format for my honest opinion.

June 1st Means Summer Reading has Begun

There are quite a few new books out the shelves this week, the first unofficial week of summer. If I were you I would start with the must read Justified by Varina Denman, and then move on to Target Israel by Tim LaHaye & Ed Hindson and remember coming up in the next two weeks is Empire’s End by Jerry B. Jenkins and Pirate Hunters by Robert Kunson.

I currently have a full slate of reading, I will be reviewing Judas the Apostle by Van R. Mayhall Jr., The Flower Brides by Grace Livingston Hill, Prayers for the Anxious Heart a Barbour Publishing Collection and I am Happy for You (Sort of…not really) by Kay Wills Wyma. So keep an eye out there are plenty of reviews on the way.

Empire’s End by Jerry B. Jenkins

I have to say this is the first book I have read from Jerry Jenkins that I really was not a huge fan of. The book is about the apostle Paul and begins from his conversion and then abruptly ends after his time in Jerusalem and his return to his hometown. Halfway through the book I realized that there was no way that this was going to end with the fall of the Roman Empire, there just wasn’t enough time. So the title Empire’s End is misleading.

The main reason I really did not care for the book is that there are a lot of liberties taken with Paul’s history and life. I enjoy well written historical Christian fiction but I felt like this book just went too far into the realm of fiction. Then I found myself not really endured to any of the characters developed in the book, including Paul.  I did love the way Jerry had God and Jesus speaking directly with Paul. I wish I could give the book a 3 ½ because I feel 4 is too high but a 3 seems a little harsh.

I was given this book in an EBook format from NetGalley for my honest opinion. The publisher of this book is Worthy Publishing.
