Age Appropriate For: 15 and up for talk of prostitution and a child being born as a result (not detailed
Best for Ages: 15 and up

Description: The last thing Aaron ever envisioned was falling for a prostitute. Everything about it spells trouble. However, he can’t help noticing the way her smile lights up when she sees him and how much brokenness she hides behind it. Neither can he ignore how desperately she needs rescue and protection.

When Lacy shares a life or death secret with him, Aaron is willing to risk everything to help her and to show her Elôm’s love. Yet, such a choice could destroy his reputation and maybe even cost him his freedom.

The Ilyon Chronicles are one of the few fantasy series that I devour as soon as they come out. However, I skipped on this connected novella because I wasn’t sure I would like the content. I should have known that Knight would handle it with care and graciousness.

The characters are vivid and endearing. That’s one of Knight’s trademarks. Aaron’s selfless love and wanting to honor God were so wonderful to see. Lacy’s mistrust, yet desiring to hope for something better were endearing.

The themes of choosing life, self-sacrifice, and Christian love and forgiveness were beautiful and had me hugging the book (err…Kindle).

As with many well-done novellas, it’s hard to give this story a proper review because I don’t want to give anything away. Let me just say that it kept my attention and the ending was very satisfying.
I highly recommend this book those who love the Ilyon Chronicles.
