It seems that William Burt’s series, The King of the Trees, just keeps getting better and better with each book I read! The Downs is filled with self-sacrifice, redemption, and love. In The Downs, the reader finds himself in a world where things may not always be quite what they seem.

I love that with each book in The King of the Trees, Burt chooses to focus on a different facet of his literary world. This installment is set in the land of one of Gaelathane’s creations, the Faeries. I truly enjo

I enjoyed this book, but not as much as the others in the series...also, it included someone dieing for the people in that towns sins...which bugged me cause the dude who was representing Christ had already died for the whole world....Christ died once and for all...We don't have to sacrifice things any more cause Christ paid the price for all the sins of those who repent and trust in Him. :D
Soo, if you read this book, just look out for that...Maybe I just misunderstood it, but if I understood it
