The Queen’s Own (book review)
This is the fifth book in a series by Samuel Schiller. In the previous book King Osric Murchada, king of Glenmara had become a believer and follower of Iosa Christus (Jesus Christ) and rejected the idol worship of Molach.
As a result of his rejection the false god, the priests of the false god led a rebellion against King Osric. Along with the false priests, the first and second legions (armies) chose to rebel and take the control of the kingdom from King Osric.
King Osric’s wife, Queen Ivrain, decides to build her own legionnaire, the Third Legionnaire. She also has a small group of women who know how to fight very well. Going against the odds and with God’s favor, they are able to build this new army.
Most of this book goes into extreme detail of the preparation for battle against the evil that has taken over their nation and showing the actual battle. Parts of this story is very graphic in its details on the battle.
Throughout the story the main characters continually rely upon God for strength, direction and favor. The odds of them winning the battle against the evil forces is very slim, yet they go forward trusting God.
Although most believers today will not have to physically fight an enemy, this book does give encouragement and insight into the spiritual battles one will have to fight on a regular basis against evil forces in this world.
I highly recommend reading this story. If you have not read the previous four books, that is recommended to be done first to fully understand and appreciate this story.
