King by R. J. Larson
Fantasy Meets the Old Testament in a Novel That Will Reach Readers of All Ages
Books of the Infinite No.3
Against his wishes and desires, Akabe of Siphra has been chosen by his people to be King. But what does a warrior know of ruling during peacetime? Guided by the Infinite, Akabe seeks to rebuild the Temple in the city of Munra to give the sacred books of Parne a home. But dangerous factions are forming in the background. To gain the land he needs, Akabe must forsake the yearnings of his heart and instead align himself through marriage to the Thaenfall family.
Meanwhile, Kien Lantec and Ela Roeh are drawn still closer together…while becoming pawns in a quest to gain power over the region. As questions of love and faith become tangled with lies and murderous plots, each must seek the Infinite to guide them through an ever more tangled web of intrigue and danger.
What others are saying
“Larson makes the fantasy genre thrilling even for readers who wouldn’t normally venture into mystical realms. Though the battles waged resemble tales from the Old Testament, there is no preaching here, merely a compelling story of good versus evil in which good is sure to triumph.”—Carolyn Richard, Booklist
“Wonderfully written in a way that kept me turning the pages to see what the will of the Infinite was, and what the purpose was for all the character’s lives. This final book in the trilogy not only allowed me to see how faith creates life, but it built up my faith so that I could let go and just rest in the peace of God no matter what I perceive as a trial. There is nothing so important that I want or think I need, that I can’t be loosed from. Through faith, like the characters in the book, peace comes from trust.”—Jeri, Amazon reviewer
