    My Comments

    I was eager to get to this story and see how everything works out for this royal family I have come to love. At first, I wasn't happy with Thad's character at all. When Monica is forced to find him and explain to him what Octavian's demanding, all Thad can think of is how this will affect him and his kingdom. Yes, his brother and sisters have taken risks and made sacrifices, but so has his wife and unexpected son. However, Thaddeus slowly comes to understand what these threats have done to his entire family and it was wonderful to see how this changes him into a better person. He realizes that it's time to stop hiding and to face Octavian once and for all.

    Thaddeus has also turned his back on God after years of hiding out in isolation, he figures God stopped hearing his cries a long time ago. He couldn't be more wrong. He also believes that he should stop loving Monica because Octavian will use that love against him, even if that's true, it's not a valid reason to harden one's heart. Thaddeus doesn't realize that ultimately he was never alone, his family and God have fought beside him to restore justice and won't rest until all has been resolved.

    So what does the heir to Lydia's throne do once he sees his wife doesn't hate him, his son yearns for him, that God is waiting with open arms, and that his kingdom needs him? He stops running and steps out in faith.

    There were two lines that utterly encouraged me in this book_

    "I've traveled too far to turn around now."

    "When your brother and I were trudging through the desert without water, I thought we were going to die. I really did. But we kept walking anyway, and now we're here, and we're engaged.' She squeezed the prince's hand. ‘Sometimes what looks like the end is really just the beginning.' Thad wasn't sure what to make of her story. His brother met his eyes. ‘Soldier on.'"

    I was VERY satisfied with the conclusion of this series and even happier to learn there's a fifth book to be releases on this series, soooo GREAT! Every part of the royal family is in this book and working together to bring Thaddeus to the throne and be reunited with his wife and child was such a great journey to read. I have loved this series and I truly enjoy McCalla's writing style; her heart, her faith, and her humor are fused throughout these characters and every obstacle they overcome! Despite the evil tyrant who threatens them, even with all his power and resources he has nothing on this beloved family and the God that protects them. I highly recommend these books, they will definitely encourage and entertain you! Each of these books can be enjoyed as a standalone, but I recommend reading the entire series even if it's out of order.

    The Missing Monarch by Rachelle McCalla

    Reclaiming the Crown Series Book 4

    Prince Thaddeus of Lydia, Heir to the crown, has been in hiding for over six years. His father made a deal with a madman and the only way to escape it was for Thad to leave. Only it didn't work. Octavian, known as 8, has been terrorizing the small Christian Kingdom of Lydia in other ways. Using whoever he could as his pawns. So far his family have been overcoming whatever the madman threw at them. Only now he found a way to call check-mate_.he found out about Thad's secret wife.

    Monica Miller lived with her parents and her son in Seattle. Six years ago her husband of a few weeks had went into hiding and told her in a note not to ever let anyone know of their connection. Someone has found out and is forcing her to find Thad for them with the promise if she does her son will be safe. Never believe a liar. Now Monica has a found a cold hearted man who barely resembles the man she married and her son is in the hands of a lunatic. She must now work along with her husband to find a way to rescue Peter and save this small country from Octavian's rule.

    As always there's plenty of adventure and impossible situations that you don't know how your hero and heroine will ever escape. You don't know who to trust_.who is truly a friend pretending to be an enemy or an enemy pretending to be a friend. I found this to be a series worth reading and am looking forward to the the next few books in this series.
