Reviewed by Nichole Moser for Readers' Favorite Dale Martin tells the story of Wes Aettian, a young man ordinary in every way except for two things: he is to be king, and he is part of ancient and sacred bloodline. In Martin’s The Lineage, we follow Wes in his journey of becoming king and fulfilling a prophecy. The Aettians, the royal family of Cassia, are in hiding from the invading Naborn. Upon his father’s death, Wes discovers that, although he is the middle-born son, he is the Chosen Heir. Eventually he discovers that he is the heir to more than the Cassian throne. The Lineage is a beautiful story – reminiscent in many ways to the Bible – that allows us to watch Wes grow from a young man into a king and a man firm in his faith in God, the Creator, and one true King. The Lineage is a wonderfully thrilling book. The writing is spot-on, from the dripping of snow melt, to the scent of death, to the ever-present love of God. Dale Martin has done a fantastic job of bringing you into a world similar to Earth, but unique in so many ways. The twists and turns were perfectly timed and most were unseen, which is a first for me. Martin’s ability to create a novel set in a different world while using the Bible, God, and Christ’s sacrifice as its centre is impressive. The faith and belief of each character was believable, including the conversion of one of the characters, to which I can personally relate. If there’s ever a book to read that speaks of God’s love, sacrifice, life as a believer, and our goal to trust in God, this is it.

I found the Lineage to be an exciting read throughout.  I love sci/fi and fantasy, and this book kept me engaged on both fronts.  Full of action, interesting characters, and there's a great message behind it.  I felt for the protagonist (Wes) as he grows into his responsibilities and tackles the challenge of leading an army and fighting a war he never expected.  I can't wait for Dale Martin's next book.  I hope for more of the same.  I highly recommend The Lineage to anyone who likes military action, political intrigue, magic, and some good old fashioned science fiction laser battles. Awesome!!
