Judge by R.J. Larson ~ Review

Judge (Books of the Infinite, #2)Review:

Kien is called by his Creator, and given duties that take him away from the woman that his heart desires, Ela. His mission? To warn the people of ToronSea against turning their backs to the Infinite to worship a new goddess. But isn't this the job of a prophet, like Ela?
Ela is given a revelation of her own, the destruction of her hometown as it is corrupted by their enemies.
Both of them are torn, between duty and what their hearts long for, will they ever be together?

I was amazed at the detail and depth that Ms. Larson created in Ela and Kien's world, so rich and lush, yet hard, harsh, with a certain realness to it. And it was so different from any fantasy I have ever read, because it was like fantasy, but set in Old Testament-like times with prophets and judges preaching to nations chasing after other gods.

I did skim through the first book in the series, so I had a pretty good idea of what was going on when I read this book which really helped. So I would probably recommend reading Prophet because it did help to know what was going on.

I liked how Kien and Ela were portrayed and their relationship with the Infinite. They were both very strong heroes who put their love for God above their desires.

Overall, a very well written and thought out series, I did get a little confused now and then, but that might have been because this book wasn't exactly my cup of tea. But I will definitely think of it and recommend it to my friends who are big fans of books of this genre :)
