    I've said it and I'll say it again. The truths communicated by this author through her work are very powerful. I'd even guess it's the reason behind many readers' attraction to her writing. One of Francine Rivers' strength as a writer is the ability to draw and knit the heart of her stories in ways that break and build a reader.

    From the despair reigning in Ephesus to the destructions in Judea, An Echo in the Darkness is a story of light, of passion, of hope, where Rivers stresses the theme of forgiveness, most of all. What are we willing to go through as followers of Christ for His will to be done not ours? That's what most impacted me in this story. Francine, through her work, has intensified my hunger to please God and not the ways of this world. The values flowing through this book are electrifying and seriously enough to leave you in a haze several days after turning the last page. It's even enough to forever change a reader's perception of what Christian Fiction should be. Whether it's Haddasah's unwavering devotion to the service of the Lord and his people, or Marcus and Julia's journey to find Christ (Julia's is absolutely heart-breaking) in the end, it all comes down to the power of Love. The power of a God who moves in the most unexpected ways.

    Despite the fact that the foundation of the book shook me emotionally, in my opinion, they are downsides to An Echo in the Darkness story-wise. A considerable part of the story is long and slow, and the writing style is repetitive which really left my interest waning. Some of the characters do not receive full closure on their situations, not to mention the fact that their persons were hard to decipher ( Alexander and Rashid, for example). The characters generally could have been more drawn and the book may come across as preachy several times. But rejoice hopeless romantics! The way Marcus and Hadassah are brought together in the end ties the bow of the story nicely. It is very, very romantic.

    Beautiful values, interesting characters, that's what Francine Rivers delivers in An Echo in the Darkness.

    Wow, the Mark of the Lion is a series that should be read by everybody with the time to read them! This second book was so fantastic, and I was hooked right from the prologue. The ending was so perfect! I've been waiting for it since the first book!

    The characters in these stories are so bold in their faith, that it makes me long to be the same. It's so beautiful to watch a man throughout his whole journey to the Lord. It makes a person want to witness for Christ, and when someone has done that in a piece of fiction... it's truly awesome and inspiring.

    Bravo Francine Rivers! You truly are one of the best!

    This is the second book in Francine Rivers' "The Mark of the Lion" trilogy. It is the gripping tale of Marcus, a Roman aristocrat's search for the Christian God. His journey takes him to Judea, a perilous journey fraught with danger & intrigue & an unlikely friendship with a Jewish family who care for him after a mishap. He also has a heavenly visitor who teaches him "The Way" & brings him peace. I'll not speak of the dramatic conclusion lest I be a spoiler, but his story is both gripping & encouraging. Francine Rivers is one of the best Christian fiction writers today.

    I really enjoyed this book. I felt like I was right there with the characters. I liked the way Ms Rivers brought in actual history, some that I didn't know happened, into the plot.
