One of my pastors turned me on to the first book in this series, and it took me all of one chapter to understand why. I bookmarked Graham's website and eagerly awaited this, the second book in the series. Graham does not disappoint this time, either. The first book focused mostly on Benaiah, while this one focuses on multiple Biblical figures including Benaiah, Eleazar, the Three, and others. Graham, being a soldier, has a wealth of experience to draw upon when recreating the battle scenes in the book. The action flows at a great pace, but without sacrificing plot and character development as many novels about war and geared towards men can so often do. He writes these Biblical figures very well, both well-known and not-so-well known, to create a tale of almost epic proportions. There are some darker scenes in the series, and this book does not hold back when it comes to graphic descriptions of violence, but the book is about soldiers and war. To ignore the pain and suffering a soldier experiences in battle would take away form the gritty realism of war. If you are looking for a book full of well-written action, solid plot development, and well-written characters, and written for men, this is certainly a series to check out. Add to that the fact that it is written by a believer who has a solid grasp of Biblical history and has no desire to revise that history as so many others have done, and you have a series which will keep you wanting more.

I read the first book in the Lion of War Series, Day of War, as a free e-book from another website. As soon as I finished the book I immediately ordered the second book and read it in one evening! Excellent, a must read

The Lion of War series continues with book 2, Covenant of War. David has been crowned king of Judah, but Israel hasn't accepted him and the Philistines are closing in... Meanwhile, palace life and intrigue threaten David's life from within as he succumbs to it's corrupting influence. Book 1, Day of War, was a little bloody for me and I had trouble getting through it. But Covenant of War kept me spellbound. Cliff Graham is a great storyteller and Covenant of War reads more like a novelization of the movie 300 than the biblical fiction I'm used to. It's still graphic and violent, but the dynamics between David and his "mighty men" were so interesting that I actually looked up the biblical account. I realized how little I knew about the battles David fought after he became king. There's some pretty awesome action in there just waiting for someone to capitalize on it. Which Graham is totally doing. There's going to be a movie and there's also a motion comic. Highly recommended for guys who are fans of war stories or movies like 300 or Gladiator.

A friend of mine told me about the first book in the series (Day of War) and encouraged me to read it. I actually got it free from a twitter promotion. Before I finished reading Day of War, I knew I wanted to get book two, Covenant of War. Once I purchased it, it only took me a few days to finish. Graham takes the Biblical accounts of David, The Three and the Thirty (His Mighty Men) and turns them in to a riveting piece of fiction. While the characters and story lines are based on Old Testament scripture, Graham does encourage the reader to read the book as fiction, as he "fills in the blanks" of how he envisions the battles going and the characters reacting. If you like movies like Gladiator, Braveheart and the like, this is your type of book. My only problem is this - I am waiting on book 3 to find out what happens next!
