The war in the north is over, but the war for all the Lands has just begun. As the Shadonae solidify their hold on the city of Thyra, Rowen Mar, the last Eldaran and savior of the White City, awakens to find herself hunted by those she has saved.
Meanwhile, the assassin Caleb Tala finds himself in the presence of the Word. The time of reckoning has come, and he must pay the price for all the lives he has taken. But in his moment of judgment, Caleb is given a second chance to change his life.
These two hold the power to save the Lands from the Shadonae. One must escape slavery, and one must choose to forsake everything before the world is consumed in darkness.
Son of Truth picks up the story of Rowen, exactly where Daughter of Light left off. As she learns more of her identity as an Eldaran, Rowen embarks on a journey to face the Shadonae and save the White City. Caleb also finds himself in a new role as a son of Truth, setting out to learn exactly what that means for his life. Faster paced than the first book, Son of Truth delivers adventure, as both Rowen and Caleb discover how to trust the Word.
Both Rowen and Caleb experience how their identities impact those they care for most, and both the gift and cost of sacrificial love. While the story doesn’t move too far forward, the characters develop, giving the reader an intimate glimpse of the depth of their emotions.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and can’t wait for the next book in the series to hit the shelf. For those who love the fantasy genre, but also want a book focused on solid Christian values, this won’t disappoint.
