Benaiah is shunned by the people of Israel because he’s different. Forced to take odd jobs on battlefields and burial grounds, Ben jumps at the chance to quit working behind the scenes and ally himself to a shepherd boy with a giant destiny.
Tossing aside his pick, Ben winced when it clunked dully against some guy’s head. Not that the dead man could feel it. Judging by the snarl on the corpse’s rigid face, the last two things he’d felt were rage and a Philistine javelin through the chest.
Part one in the Forsaken Sons trilogy starts off strong with underdog heroes, fallen angels, and living legends. The Three blends fantasy themes and historical events, breathing new energy and excitement into a familiar story. If you’re looking for diverse cultures, action-packed paranormal, and cinema-worthy settings, The Three has it all.
No matter what his father used to be, he’d Fallen. Only a demon remained. And if there was any resemblance between father and son, Benaiah was afraid of it.
Benaiah is my favorite part of this book. His struggle to become a leader is raw, relatable, and refreshingly honest. I look forward to getting my hands on the next installment to see what happens to him next!
