I was surprised to find that I enjoyed the second and third books in this series even more than the first. I felt that the characters' storylines weren't quite as predictable, and I really liked reading about the conflict in Israel from and LDS perspective. I also liked that while Robert Marcum focused more on the Jewish viewpoint of the conflict, he did address both sides of the conflict (especially in the third volume) and pointed out that neither side was wholly in the "right."

So this second book in the series was a little better than the first as far as switching from story line and conversation to history and what happened. I don't know if this was because is was written better, or, it I was just more used to it. This story line was a little more "faster pace" than the first book. It seemed to move faster, although I read it very slowly compared to other books. I am not sure I want to read the 3rd book in the series. Not gripping enough. There are so many other book...more
I recently read this book again, and I really love this series. It was very captivating and powerful for me. I love the characters in the story and their power to love and pull together after going through such heart-rending things. I love how it teaches me more about history and about the Jews and about people of many different cultures. It opened up my understanding for what is going on in Israel, and I appreciated the viewpoint from people of different cultures.
I love these books, but I just don't read them as quickly as I usually read books. I'd say it's because it's part history and it's a history I've never known much about, so I can't just skim - I'm actually reading and re-reading. Everything is new to me and I love learning about it.
This book was pretty good also and it is very interesting learning about that time in our history in more of a less tense version than reading a straight history book. I had to finish all three just to see what happened to all the people.
I was trying to listen to this, and I finally gave up because I had so much going on I couldn't listen for long enough periods to get into the story, I'll try again in a while...
These books help me understand the wars in this land much better.

He writes so well that it seems that this could really happen!
I made it halfway through but found it too boring to continue.
Interesting history. Fun, but somewhat predictable story.
