Ralene Burke knows how to weave a story! In this sequel to Armor of Aletheia, Karina and Tristan continue their quest for the armor. The tension and adventure intensifies along with their feelings for each other. There's new characters, new challenges, and plenty of drama and action. Sword of Soter was an enjoyable read that kept me turning the page to see what will happen next.

I received a complimentary copy from Prism Book Tours.

Sword of Soter by Ralene Burke is an admirable sequel to Armor of Aletheia. Whereas in Armor of Aletheia the band of protectors and Queen Karina are rarely apart for long, we aren’t too far into Sword of Soter when we find them all going separate ways out of necessity. This understandably sets a different tone for this second book in the trilogy – the mood is a bit more troubled, friendships are tested like never before, and new players are introduced as doubt of their trustworthiness

My favorite characters are back in this harsh yet brilliant sequel that I have been anticipated for a long time...Karina, Sam, Tristan and Rashka have to continue their dangerous yet necessary quest for the holy armor The Creator has sent them to collect. Little do they realize that Faramos is spreading evil around the kingdom faster than they can prepare themselves. Really felt that this sequel was MUCH like Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers because these 4 friends end of splitting up and they ...more

After reading Armor of Aletheia earlier this fall, I was eagerly anticipating Sword of Soter. Ralene Burke did not disappoint. Burke continues the epic adventure begin in book one. Some of the characters continue in Sword of Soter and new ones are introduced. I was disappointed in the path that at least one of the characters from Armor of Aletheia takes in Sword of Soter. It was hard to take but it did give a new character a more involved role.
Much like she did in the first book, Ralene Burke sp

Beginning the Sacred Armor Trilogy, Armor of Aletheia sets Karina on a journey to find the Armor of the Creator in order to save her people. Then, in the second book, Sword of Soter, that journey continues—with a generous dose of adventure and danger, helpful friends and hurtful foes. The series proves to be quite the epic fantasy.

Though somewhat unremarkable as far as fantasy goes, Armor of Aletheia and Sword of Soter kept me entertained nonetheless. I enjoyed getting to know Karina and the

I have some mixed feelings on the sequel of the Sacred Armor Trilogy.

I am not sure as to why, but I experienced such a disconnect with these characters for much of this story and was deeply saddened by that. I have brainstormed as to what exactly had me not as attached and invested to these characters as book one and I don't know. I realized that many times I felt some of the characters were not quite themselves? At least, I felt they weren't. One character felt so wishy washy to me and

Three kingdoms: Aletheia, Soter, and Tzedek.

Two brothers: Faramos, who is an evil warlock, and his sibling Tristan, who formerly worked as Faramos’ assassin but has had a change of heart.

One young queen, and one long, complicated quest that spans three novels.

Queen Karina must find and obtain the six pieces of armor that will allow her to defeat Faramos. Two are hidden in each of the three kingdoms. In Armor of Aletheia, Ms. Burke’s first book in this trilogy, two pieces were located: the Shield

When I read Armor of Aletheia, I didn’t like it as much as I hoped I would. While it was a good book, there were some things in it that didn’t resonate with me as I hoped they would, but I decided to give Sword of Soter the benefit of a doubt.

And I was pleasantly surprised.

I honestly thought the characters were going to be cliche, as they all fit into the regular tropes, but they surprised me in their individuality. Each one serves an important role in the tale that made it stronger than the fir
