Be prepared to stay up late reading with this suspenseful conclusion to The Seven Trilogy! I like how the story draws from Revelations and shows what the future could possibly mean for Christians. It's not a comfortable one, but I do appreciate the message of hope that is threaded through this series. I can't recommend this one enough! Just be sure you have plenty of time to read when you start it, since it's almost impossible to put down.
I received this series from Just Read Tours. This is my
As this trilogy ends I can only think that it really isn't the end is it? In all honesty, it's just the beginning. As we have worked out way through the Seven Trilogy we have settled in with this small family of believers as their country, even the world is turning on Christians. In Canada martial law prevails, Bibles are contraband even considered hate literate and banned, there are curfews for Christians, bracelets for identification as a Christian and even small fish nailed over businesses to ...more

These books are a marathon read – by that I mean plan out enough time that you can read through all three in a short space of time. You will not want to put them down once you start. This series begins in 2053 with a terrorist attack attributed to The Horsemen, allegedly a Christian terrorist group. The story takes place in Canada but the distrust of Christians extends to the USA and most other countries. In Canada, widespread panic has led to martial law being declared and citizens’ rights bein ...more

This series introduced me to Sara Davidson and was a complete pleasure to read. I really love her writing style and how she draws readers in. Each of the 3 books were well written and easy to follow. They offer a steady pace and relatable characters. The stories unfold naturally and are realistic so you never feel like the author is grasping or disconnected. These books will have you on the edge of your seat wanting more as you root for characters. Emotions build slowly, but you will be 100% inv ...more

The Morning Star Rises Things are getting worse but they aren’t as bad as they could be, yet. There is still hope. We get to know Meryn’s brothers more in this book, which I enjoyed their added perspective to the story and the new hope that is stirring.

A copy of this book was given to me through JustRead Tours. All opinions are my own.

What a great third book in "The Seven Trilogy." A bit chilling when we read the news these days and realize our country and our world is changing so quickly, and often in ways that go against our worldview. Thanks to Sara Davison for using her imagination to show us what could be and to encourage readers that we can live according to our beliefs in spite of frightening opposition. ...more

The final book in Sara Davison’s The Seven Trilogy picks up the story of the persecution of Christians in a Canada controlled by the military and under martial law. Jesse Christensen and Meryn O’Reilly are barely on speaking terms but have to work together for the good of the Christian community. Are they doomed to be at odds forever?
The story takes its premise from the book of Revelation which describes the persecution of Christian to come. Despite the gloom of the subject matter, the story is

Be sure you’ve blocked out a period of time before you begin reading this book, because The Morning Star Rises, like the two earlier books of the trilogy, demands to be read in one sitting, if possible. Danger condenses life, emotions and even love. Sara Davison’s trilogy portrays this reduction in a powerful manner.
After reading The End Begins and The Dragon Roars, most of the characters were already familiar, as is the fear and danger that threatens everything they hold dear. The tension is pa

The Morning Star Rises finishes the three books of the Seven Trilogy books written by Sara Davison. I've enjoyed reading all three books and will watch for more by this author.
This is an end of times story taking place in Canada where Christian's are accused of atrosities which is the excuse by the government to close churches and forbid owning bibles or teaching their children from bible story's. Meryn owns a book store where she finds a way to smuggle bibles. Jesse is in the Canadian military
