An Affirming Exciting Read Jan 11, 2009
Book two is as exciting and affirming as was book one. Lisa T. Bergren has a new fan. I continue to be blessed by the characters, their story as well as the lessons learned. These lessons will stay with me for a lifetime, to be treasured and revisited. If you're looking for a gift that keeps on giving, consider this series! My family and friends share my sentiments about the books.
A must read Sep 9, 2008
I love to read and I found these books by Barb & J.C, Hendee one of the best books I have read in a long time. I can't wait until the next book comes out.
Great second in the series! Mar 2, 2008
I totally loved the first book in this series, The Begotten. It was fabulous. The second book in this series, The Betrayed was just as good. I recommend reading the series in order. There was a point in the middle of The Betrayed when I put this book down due to other commitments, but when I picked it up again I was pulled right back into that world.
The brutality the "gifted" experienced was as powerful as the miraculous events. I couldn't believe how many times they were captured after trying to get free. And being pursued like that had to make them crazy. I found the parallel between the "dark" lord and Satan quite interesting. He would get furious when Daria quoted scripture during times of suffering, yet that was the one thing that sustained her. For me, another profound conclusion from this story was how God will sometimes allow others to suffer alongside us to provide encouragement.
I loved the message about God's perfect timing and tuning into his voice. And the strategies that the evil Lord, Sorcerer Abramo, used to try to break them were so similar to the devil's. First he tries luring you in with your own lusts and weaknesses. If that doesn't break you he goes after your flesh (like with sickness) and if you still refuse to curse God in the midst of that pain he tries the ultimate tactic of hurting those you love. What a wicked enemy we have!
Bergren did such a fabulous job of making me see how the enemy works through this parallel story. It makes me want to memorize more scriptures that I can use when I need encouragement and when I need to fight off the enemy's attacks. As far as the edgy factor goes? I'd rate this with 8 out of ten stars for edgy content. If you want to experience an adventure that will both thrill you and at the same time cut you to the very marrow of your bones, you will love this book.
On the edge "THE BETRAYED" Feb 8, 2008
After reading THE BEGOTTEN I was hooked and quickly located THE BETRAYED to read. Then I realized the third book wasn't out yet and am still on the edge waiting for it. Bergren has a way of weaving her story with history and religion that makes me want to learn more. Not only is the message important but the way it is presented is exciting enough you can't put it down. HIGHLY recommend "THE GIFTED" series by Lisa T. Bergren.
Even Better than the First!!! Jan 7, 2008
Hard to believe Lisa Bergren could out do herself, but she did! The 2nd of the Gifted Series is even better than the first. If any drawback, its that I found these before the 3rd book was out. I am counting the days to see how this plays out. Excellent characters and storyline. And nothing beats the message!
