But first things first. If you would like to pre-order the novel, you can go to Amazon, B&N, and Kobo. Also, Ms. Morrows is having a Facebook release party tomorrow, April 26th, at 6pm edt. You can join HERE to hang out at the virtual party. Now on to the review!
A Desperate Escape is no different. It picks up after Kayden has proclaimed, "I was sent here to kill you."
Y'all, what happens next is the love of Christ. Ms. Morrows has hinted at the prince's faith in the previous books but this one delves deeper. At times, my disbelief in the scenes gave me pause. Was Prince Dvarius' reaction believable? Yet, I think that is exactly what Ms. Morrows was going for. To have the reader question their reactions to that of how Christ wants us to react.
Christianity is often seen as an unrealistic belief. The call God places upon us, the love He demands, it can seem daunting, impossible for the unbeliever. This is what Kayden experiences in A Desperate Escape.
Yet, the high tension is still present. The fight scenes spectacular. And the intrigue and mystery...well they are full of suspense. But what gripped me the most about this story was the focus of God.
He is the reason Prince Dvarius leads in a just matter. Dvarius faith, I believe, is what cracked Kayden's wall around her heart and had her seeking the Creator. Not only that, but A desperate Escape will have us all questioning our behavior. Are we walking in the Spirit or letting our flesh rule?
A Desperate Escape was a great read and ended with the usual cliff hanger. That bait swinging before you, twisting your insides as you eagerly await the next book in the series. If you've not read the other books in the series, I encourage you too. It makes the story that much richer. If not, don't miss this one, you won't be sorry.
*I give this a 5 out of 5.
**I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
God inspired me. I've written about aliens and a dystopian post apocalyptic future society, but I never thought I would write a story about a Cinderella-type young woman who falls in love with the Prince she is sent to assassinate.
2. Do you share any character traits with Kayden?
Honestly, I don't see any of myself in Kayden, but I'm certain there are similarities. Mostly I just wish I could be more like her. She's my hero!
3. What message do you hope readers will take away after reading A Desperate Escape?
The message that I have worked so hard to weave into the entire series is that it's never too late to turn your life around - and God's forgiveness covers ALL sin!
4. Can you tell us if there will be more books in the Order of the Moonstone series?
Yes, there are more books to come. I will reveal more about the next short story to come at my online release party and I'll be handing out bookmarks that have the next cover all along the [book] tour.
5. What's next for you writing wise after the Order of the Moonstone series is complete?
Actually, the first book in my next series is set to release before the Order of the MoonStone is complete. Life After E.L.E. part 1 is set to release in November of this year!
