Courage Review

“You will never be alone. Take courage in that always.”

Determined to follow the will of Elohim, Makilien faces daily threats and hardship. But an even bigger threat is growing. Bent on destroying his opposition once and for all, Zirtan amasses a devastating force to take control of Dolennar. When a dangerous secret comes to light, Makilien, along with her family and Aedan, are thrust into the middle of the struggle.

Faced with an army far outnumbering their own, Makilien and her friends risk everything—injury, captivity, even death— to gather their allies. But in the end, their hope and courage must rest in Elohim. Can the forces of good achieve victory, or will the might of evil prevail? Who will be left to see the end?

In my opinion, Courage is even better than Truth. Courage is a truly amazing story. There is more about Makilien's family, Sirion (I really like Sirion), and about Aedan . . . actually, a lot is revealed about Aedan that even he didn't know. There is plenty of adventure, and the title comes into play a lot. The characters constantly have to have courage in order to do what Elohim wants them to do.

The scale of Courage is a lot more epic than Truth and gives the reader a lot more time to get to know the characters. There is a pretty amazing nine chapter long battle, and the start of a romance. The book ends on a pretty big cliffhanger, but honestly, it didn't bother me that much. Why? I started reading Trust literally immediately after finishing Courage. I really am glad I was able to do that, because if I hadn't it would have driven me crazy. I can't say enough about how much I like the Makilien Trilogy. I highly recommend this book!
