Book Review & Giveaway: Sir Bentley and Holbrook Court

*Giveaway Closed*

Big day today! I don’t know if any of you have noticed the countdown box in the sidebar, but today marks the beginning of another book giveaway. This time the book is a signed copy of Sir Bentley of Holbrook Court. I hope you’ll take the time to read the review and leave a comment. Leaving a comment will automatically enter you in the drawing for the book*. The winner will be announced in a week on Thursday, November 22.

Bentley mounted Silverwood, look down at his parents, and launched the powerful steed into the kingdom…a kingdom waiting for one young knight to discover the truth of a Stranger.

When Bentley refuses to kill two Followers, his fate is sealed. His days as a Noble night have ended. Now he must leave Chessington in search of the Truth. He learns that the man called The Stranger was, and is, the Prince. The Son of the True King. In his pursuit to follow in the footsteps of his Prince, Bentley becomes a peasant and ventures into Holbrook. He becomes one of the farmers and discovers oppression, injustice, love and a cause to fight for. The day is coming when Holbrook will need a knight of the Prince.

This may well be my favorite book in the Knights of Arrethtrae series. Bentley’s quest for Truth and desire to serve the Prince illuminate truths about God and our responsibilities as Christians. A paragraph from the back cover of the book sums up the reason I love this series so much. “Journey to Arrethtrae, where these knights of noble heart live and die in loyal service to the King and the Prince. These knights are mighty, for they serve a mighty King.” I think that we, as Christians today, often forget to walk in the truth that we are in a battle and should and can fight that battle as mighty warriors, for we serve a mighty King. Never forget, the King reigns…and His Son!

Book Review and Giveaway: Stalked

*Giveaway Closed*

Dearest Mother, Please do NOT be alarmed. As you can see from this address, I am not yet in Wisconsin. I’ve been delayed and will explain everything in another letter.

Falsely accused of theft, Rikke Svendsen is banished from Denmark. Separated from her mother and younger brothers, Rikke boards a ship to travel to America. She plans to join her father and older brothers in Racine, Wisconsin. But she finds more trouble on the ship. A deranged actor blames her for the death of his son. How far will he go to get revenge? Will Rikke ever see her family again?

I recently interviewed the author of this book here on this blog (read the interview here). She offered me a free review copy of Stalked and (of course!) I accepted. My great-great-grandparents came through Ellis Island and I love emigration stories from that time period. Stalked was no exception. The beginning felt a little rushed, but the story soon smoothed out and kept pulling me along. This is a fun historical fiction with a dash of suspense and a pinch of mystery.
