Of the Persecuted
by Angie Brashear



         Laila Pennedy awaits death by hanging. For the Rendow Clan rules the Woodlands Region, aiming to slaughter the Faithful. And she deserves to die. But Lars Landre, the man destined to lead the Faithful out of persecution, has other plans hidden behind his rare and mysterious blue eyes. Rescue.
          Following the daring escape, Laila seeks the path of a warrior and vows revenge against the Rendow Clan. She embarks on a dangerous journey with Lars, one in which they endeavor to reach the promised safety of a magical village, to train for battle, and to ultimately assure freedom for those with faith in the Maker.
          Clashes of weapons and souls. Brutal loss of lives. Unrequited love. How in all the Woodlands will Laila survive?

What Others Are Saying
       This is a gripping fantastic story of faith, sacrifice, and adventure. The author pulls you in from the very first line of the book. I was truly captivated with this story and read it all the way through in one sitting. It is an amazing and suspenseful book that compares the things the characters went through to the Bible in a fantasy sort of way. I just absolutely loved this book and I can’t wait to read more by this author. This book gets 5***** from me and I am highly recommending it to anyone and everyone. It is a must read story of faith, determination, adventure and suspense. You will not be disappointed.

          Absolutely loved this book! I really liked how it wasn't just based on the love between the two main characters but also the love they share for "the Maker". This book really grabbed my attention and kept me guessing on what was going to happen next, which is really hard to find these days. This book had the perfect combination of love, adventure, and faith. I really liked the main female character because although she had her insecurities, like most girls do, she overcame them, which gives a really strong message to all girls with their own insecurities big or small. I loved the male character for obvious reasons, Dreamy! Definitely a must read!

          I could not put this book down! I read it cover to cover in less than 48 hours. The descriptions used by the author create a vivid image in the reader's mind of the magical setting for this spiritual journey of the characters. Definitely a must read!!! I've already recommended to friends and my online book club put it next in line.
          
          Finally! A book I can recommend to my friends and students! Laila and Lars captivated my attention. I wasn't ready for the book to end, but I am looking forward to the next one. Glad I bought more than one.
         I could NOT put this book down! This is not a genre that I am naturally drawn to, but the story is so intriguing and the adventures so compelling that I could not stop reading once I started. Angie uses words in such a way that you feel like you could be watching a movie instead of merely reading words on a page. The integrity and simple, yet bold faith of her characters challenged me to consider the depth of my faith and my willingness to "fight the good fight". I would highly recommend this book to young and old (I am 57). You will not be disappointed. I'M HUNGRY FOR BOOK 2!!!
