Once I again I am amazed by R.J. Larson’s talent for writing fantasy. I was totally swept away to the land of the Eosyths and to the great city of Sulaanc. I was hooked on these books with Prophet and each successive title only draws me further in, Queen was no exception. The sheer amount of detail in the peoples, lands, and customs is a delight to read. And the fact that <R.J loosely weaves Biblical re-tellings into her tales is major bonus in my opinion. In Queen I saw bits of Esther, Nebuchadnezzar, and Jael.
Queen is an exciting and engrossing tale leaving me unable to put my Kindle down. I breathlessly turned the pages wondering what would happen next to my favorite characters and how the Infinite would move. With each of the books in this series I have felt drawn closer to God and even a little convicted at times, “Child of Dust, are you My servant?”
R.J. Larson is a woman of talent, writing fantasy and Biblical fiction equally as well. I’ve never been overly big on fantasy, even Christian, but she has convinced me otherwise. I eagerly await and devour each of her books. And Queen is book you won’t want to miss!
