Excellent. Could not put it down. I purchased the series of The Gifted after reading Lisa's novel The Captain's Bride. Lisa's research for this series is very well done, which makes her novels educational as well as enjoyable. I'm looking forward to taking The Betrayed & The Blessed on holidays.
I loved this series. It took a few chapters in the first book and I almost quit reading. But I would say that this is one of my absolute favorite series of all time. I loved the characters and I was deeply touched by the faith and the character of the "Gifted" and their mission. Her book sent me to the Scriptures more than once. I have never read a book/series twice but someday I might break my record and go back and re-read this one. Definitely a page turner. My first time reading Bergren - I will be checking out more of her books.
Absolutely spell-binding! Be careful, you won't want to put this book down once you begin reading it! One of the thrilling things about Lisa Bergren's books is that each of her series is so different, but each one is such awesome reading!
