Summary: In the three years since Maria Morris found the farmer-boy-prince, the Followers have multiplied. As Wyndemere’s empire cracks and unrest rises, the Legatee orchestrates the Rebellion. Danger Has Not Disappeared…But Neither Has Hope.
Though the overthrow of the tyrannical regime is imminent, Maria’s role as the “woman who started it all” is not widely known. So why the foreboding of danger?  When James invites her to headquarters where Maria assumes a new role among The Followers, tragedy strikes. The enemies she had thought long gone are capable of far more than she imagined. Will she have the courage to stand for what she believes, no matter the cost? Will she have the strength to surrender her dreams when all seems lost and she can do nothing at all?

My Thoughts: This was the best book of the trilogy. The adventures were exciting and kept me turning pages all day (I read the entire book in one day). Maria’s stand for her faith and her cause was definitely the best part. I have always been thrilled by stories both true and fiction of those who risk everything for what they believe.
There was one scene that was confusing and I didn’t feel that it was explained enough; but overall a wonderful book. I’m very glad to have been introduced to the Destiny Trilogy.

My Favorite Quotes: “The best of men are men at best.”

Summary: On her quest to find the crown prince, Maria Morris faces an abundance of obstacles. Now a marked Christian, it will be difficult and dangerous for her to travel. The USF follows her every move. (as the vibrating chip in her arm irritatingly reminds her.) Yet knowing all of this, Maria puts her trust in God and, with the help of a few new friends, refuses to give up her mission. She must find the crown prince. The Destiny Of A Few depends on it.

Summary taken from Goodreads

My Thoughts: Another enjoyable book by Sarah Holman.

The story was very interesting and kept me going but I ran into a lot of typos again and one particular character says “like” and “You know” excessively. Though I understand the author was trying to show her slang and maybe portray her as annoying, it feels very forced.
Even so, the characters are believable and loveable, the situations exciting, and the message good. The story is a page turner, I didn’t want to put it down and I would have read it a lot quicker if I wasn’t in the middle of a conference.

My Favorite Quotes:

~”It’s an old word that means ‘the one to whom a legacy is bequeathed’. That is what James is – A Legatee,” her father explained.

~ The Destiny of a few is in your hands.
