Read full description of the books The Truth Seeker, #3:(Note: I wrote this review years ago, and some of my opinions about this book have changed, but since I still like the review, I don't want to remove it.)
This book is awesome. The plot was believable, suitably complicated, and cleverly unfolded. It was exceptional. Especially since it's a Christian romance fiction novel. This book succeeded far and beyond my expectations for a book of that genre.
The characters were appealing and did not fall into the stereotypes which appear to dominate books of its kind. The writing was quite good. THE AUTHOR EVEN USES SEMI-COLONS! Usually when I read books of this kind I want to rephrase things constantly and spot lots of punctuation errors. While reading this book, my inner-editor was able to step back and take a break.
This is a funny book, too, despite the serious subject matter. The family antics are hilarious. All of the characters have unique characteristics which mesh together to make a wonderful, crazy group. I laughed out loud several times while reading this book.
The romance was actually good. Coming from me, that's high praise. It's not that I don't like romance. I'm a sucker for romance, really, it just has to be plausible and engaging.
While reading book 2 in this series, I groaned and thrashed about during the romantic parts. They weren't really all that bad from a writing stand-point, but they were sappy.
This romance, however, was actually good. It was sweet, funny, and believable. I actually liked the characters as a couple, and liked the scenes putting them together.
The plot's twists and turns were well handled. I truly could not have guessed the end. The writing kept me on the edge of my seat.
When it comes to Christian fiction, I generally have a bone to pick in three areas (Well, more than three, but I've narrowed it down): plausibility, romance, and the way that faith is handled.
This book succeeds in all three areas. Faith is not handled in a way that is overly-sentimental or watered down. Characters in this series have real, serious obstacles to overcome in order to come to saving faith in Christ. Their issues are not discarded at the end so that they can just automatically "see the light" and accept Christ. Rather, the author wrestles with difficult theological issues: God's justice and mercy in book 1, unanswered prayer in book 2, and the resurrection in this book.
Arguments against faith are not only presented in an accurate and believable way, but there are actually satisfying answers given, not just trite sayings.
I intensely enjoyed this book, and would highly recommend it to teens and adults. The book is perfectly clean, but there is some violence, as well as graphic (but not gratuitous) descriptions which more sensitive readers ought to be aware of. Nonetheless, this is a fantastic read!
