Wow! What powerful story of sin, redemption and everything in between. Melinda writes a beautifully rich story that does not ignore the consequences of sin, but highlights hope for even the worst sinner. I found myself relating to many of the characters. So many life lessons in this book. I really appreciated the study guide she included. I can't wait for more!

Brokenness is a universal human condition. As a pre-reader of this novel, I have experienced the first family - on earth- and their fall from grace, the first murder, Satan's tactics and God's care of them as they progress from a beautiful Garden of Eden to the harshness of the world broken by their own sin. You will find yourself nodding your head and saying, "Yes, I so understand," or "I had not thought of that being a concern". Life was very different for them than for us in the modern world, and yet the humanness is something I experience every day. Wonderful writing, insightful dialogue and an invitation to discover who you are and who God is - after the Fall of Man.

Refuge captivated me from the beginning! It is a fascinating story of the conflict between the two oldest brothers of the large first family and how it affected the rest of the family. Could brothers marry their sisters? What would happen to Cain after he had killed his brother? What would happen to Lilith? The author's vivid imagination enables her to create a story which portrays how the spirit world influences the lives of God's creatures. I did not want to put this book down! Now I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!

Same as the warrior's den, except that it has moss in certain areas for the elders to sit.
