This was my first choice of fiction for this month’s reading selections from Crossway. I knew I was taking a risk with fiction and not knowing anything about the series or the author. And honestly, this is the first Crossway Book that has disappointed me. The medieval language was tough to get through and it was a long drawn out beginning. Others may like it – especially if you are a fiction person. I would rather non-fiction, and I know I can always count Crossway to deliver in that genre.
