I loved Judge.
Second in the Books of the Infinite series.
You can read my review of the first book, The Prophet.
This fast moving narrative is intriguing from the first page. R.J. Larson has a knack for writing superb descriptions of the fantasy world she has created. I can really see the surroundings in my mind. Judge is a beautiful love story both spiritually between the Infinite and His people and in the natural between characters.
Tension builds as one intense scene follows another, then it dispels slightly with the humor prinkled in liberally. Even as I set the book down to get back to "real life", I was left thinking of my relationship with the Infinite, Larson's name for God the Creator. God's passion for us is brought forth beautifully.
As I was reading the book of Jeremiah this week, I was reminded of scenes from Judge that paralleled. It was easy to see where Mrs. Larson found some of her ideas.
I cannot wait to read the next book! Here's a little snippet from the publisher:
"Kien Lantec, you will bear witness to my followers in ToronSea.
Tell them I see they are beguiled. Tell them I seek their hearts. The wise will hear Me.But why Kien? Isn't this the role of a true prophet, such as Ela of Parne? Seeking answers, Kien visits Ela and finds her stricken by a devastating vision of her own. Her birthplace, Parne, has forsaken their Creator and will soon suffer judgment. Pulled in separate ways, each must seek to follow the Infinite's leading... and hope He will reunite them again soon.
Child of dust, will you be My servant?"

I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
