Martyr's Fire by Sigmund Brouwer Book Review

Martyr's Fire coverWill this dangerous quest lead the outcast Orphan King toward an ancient secret—or to certain destruction?Posing as a beggar, Thomas escapes Magnus after fifteen men, who are calling themselves the Priests of the Holy Grail, arrive and take control of the castle through wondrous acts and apparent miracles. With the help of his longtime friend Gervaise, Thomas sets out on a journey that leads him to the ancient Holy Land. Unaware that Katherine and Hawkwood are watching over him, Thomas is tested in his beliefs and comes face to face with the ancient power that the Merlins and Druids have long been searching for.

Enter the world of Merlin’s Immortals, where ancient secrets and evil conspiracies take you on a breathless adventure of discovery, intrigue, and hidden knowledge.
 
My Thoughts:

First of all let me tell you that there are three other books in this series. This is the first book that I have read in this series and I had no problem figuring it out without reading the other books in the series.

Martyr's Fire can be read as a standalone novel. It has a lot of suspense and action throughout this young adult series. The book draws you in quickly.  I don’t think the book in itself has a lot of depth. It’s more of a short and fun take me away read.  The characters are fun and somewhat fascinating.

From the title you would not think of this as a Christian series but, I assure you that the book is clean. Lots of good and evil that make you think about God. You may be wondering about the fantasy aspect of the series as a Believer. I wouldn’t worry as the book doesn’t get into anything crazy and the author does a good job from a Christian viewpoint.

If you love a good read with lots of twist and turns throughout the pages, this book is right up your alley. There is a fourth installment of this book coming soon.
