In the midst of all the fear and confusion, only one thing is clear … This isn’t over yet.
Jesse Christensen is out of the army, but the real battle has just begun. As martial law continues in Canada in 2054, Major Gallagher has taken over the city. His oppression of believers intensifies in response to a so-called radical Christian group that claims responsibility for more terrorist attacks. But is Gallagher acting in a professional capacity, or is he carrying out a personal vendetta?
Meryn O’Reilly faces a dark and uncertain future after shocking revelations devastate her life. She is determined to follow God’s call, but her plans could cost her everything. She and Jesse struggle to surrender everything to a God who is always in control, even when circumstances suggest otherwise.
With the world descending into chaos around them, Meryn and Jesse face the greatest barrier to their love yet--a barrier that may prove too strong to breach.
Be sure you’ve blocked out a period of time before you begin reading this book, because The Morning Star Rises, like the two earlier books of the trilogy, demands to be read in one sitting, if possible. Danger condenses life, emotions and even love. Sara Davison’s trilogy portrays this reduction in a powerful manner.
After reading The End Begins and The Dragon Roars, most of the characters were already familiar, as is the fear and danger that threatens everything they hold dear. The tension is palpable, and I’m not sure if my blood pressure has recovered yet.
The message of this trilogy is beautiful and can be summed up in the words of John 1:5, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” This is the theme verse for this book but also fits the entire series.
Disclaimer: I was given a copy of this book by the author, without compensation.
Tense, heart-pounding, and at times wonderfully sweet, I enjoyed The Morning Star Rises and award it four and a half stars. Recommended.
