The Roman, the twelve and the King is the second book in the Epic Order Series.
In this installment, The author brings you into the world where Jesus Christ lived and did the work His father asked Him to do. The book actually begins in the 18th century where our immortal heros watch as composer George Handel struggles to complete his epic musical piece about the life and death of Jesus. So God decides to send Max, Liz, Kate, Al and Nigel back in time to when Jesus lived on earth watching Him as He lived and interacted with humanity. They are witness to His death and His resurrection. Returning to 18th century they help Handel find the passion to complete his musical composition.
It was a great read and fun to see Gullion & Clair pop in from time to time. The author did a great job presenting Jesus life using the gospels.
I do want to mention that this book is 600 pages, which for the price is a great deal, but it can be quite daunting for a young reader.
In the The Roman, the Twelve, and the King, the second book in the Epic Order of the Seven series, Jenny Cote brings you back to almost 2,000 years ago. Max, Kate, Liz, Al, and Nigel are sent on a mission to help G. F. Handel with his masterpiece, the Messiah. To get inspired for the upcoming music the team, along with their new teammate, are sent back into the time when Jesus lived among us. Watching as he feeds thousands, heals the blind, lame, and many other miracles, the team is excited as they see the Messiah come and share about God's love after centuries of waiting to see the many prophecies be fulfilled.
It is definitely an EPIC read, and as Nigel would say, "It just takes the biscuit!"
The Roman, the Twelve, and the King is really an amazing book, as you feel like you're right there as Jesus teaches and heals thousands, along with His trusty animals.
Jenny Cote has done an awesome job with this book, probably the best one she's written so far. The characters in her book are funny, smart, and would be awesome pals to have around. :) Each member on the Epic Order of the Seven has a personality that makes you fall in love with them, and as some of them learn to face their fears, and to trust Jesus through it all, you get to "see" the most important time in history, the life of Jesus.
The Roman, the Twelve, and the King is definitely a must read.
