Overview

Arise now, guardian...

The war in the north is over, but the war for all the Lands has just begun. As the Shadonae solidify their hold on the city of Thyra, Rowen Mar, the last Eldaran and savior of the White City, awakens to find herself hunted by those she has saved.

Meanwhile, the assassin Caleb Tala finds himself in the presence of the Word. The time of reckoning has come, and he must pay the price for all the lives he has taken. But in his moment of judgment, Caleb is given a second chance to change his life.
These two hold the power to save the Lands from the Shadonae. One must escape slavery, and one must choose to forsake everything before the world is consumed in darkness.

    Son of Truth picks right up where Daughter of Light ended and with it a new favorite character for me: Caleb Tala.

    I was at first disappointed that his story doesn’t really become a huge part of the plot until almost the second half of the book, but the transformation he goes through was worth the wait. His life is a testament of second chances that God gives and how He can literally use anyone for His glory.

    I also enjoyed hearing more of Rowen’s story even though hers was a lot more heart-wrenching in this one!

    There is not as much action that takes place in Son of Truth, but it is still an excellent read. There is more a focus on spiritual warfare that was really awesome as well as loving others no matter the cost.

    Overall, I would continue to recommend this series. Morgan can weave a wonderful tale with flawed characters that struggle, but yet are still used by God’s hand. I’m eagerly looking forward to volume three!

    I give this novel 4.5 out of 5 stars!

    Middle books in a trilogy often bear the brunt of criticism. They don’t have the spark of introducing a new world and new concepts,
    nor the satisfaction of bring a story line to a resolution. However, I actually enjoy this open-ended quality. There are no long origin
    stories to muddle through and no sadness about leaving a favorite world. Plus, a well-written middle book is filled to the brim with
    action and intrigue, bringing depth the characters and immersing the reader more fully into the narrative.  Some favorite middle books?
    The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins come to mind.

    Overall, Son of Truth is a good addition to the ‘awesome middle book’ club.

    Busse does an excellent job showing Caleb Tala’s growth from assassin and pleasure-seeker to a follower of the Word. His progression
     is believable, particularly in regard to how he deals with people from his old life and strives to resist his old, lustful behaviors. The
    author deals with the seedier aspects with a deft, delicate hand that alludes to his fleshy indulgences without glorifying them. And his
     ‘superpower’ as a Son of Truth is finally revealed, and it’s pretty incredible.

    Other characters, particularly Rowen Mar, definitely suffer for their faith, and that isn’t a bad thing.  I appreciate the harsh reality they are
     put through. Busse isn’t afraid to show her characters doubting that the Word is ultimately in control, and questioning their own beliefs.
     This is refreshingly real and honest. At the same time, the story is with the deft hand of one who knows their endgame, and I never felt
    like I was being manipulated by cheap suspense tricks or red herrings.

    Downsides? The best scenes were when all the characters were interacting with each other. When they were apart, it wasn’t as
    compelling. I also found the Eldarans, Rowen and Caleb, far more interesting than the humans. And there’s Captain Lore. He is in the
     unenviable role of being the Solid Good Guy which doesn’t give him a lot of opportunities for character growth.

    Final Verdict: a must read. I couldn’t put this book down.  Busse really hits her stride with characterization and plot. But this book highly
     relies on knowledge from Daughter of Light, so grab a copy of both!

    Amazing book with strong religious values.

    This is the second book in the Follower of the Word series. I loved the book and have had a conversation via facebook with the author. I am eagerly awaiting book three.
