My Review of The Orphan King
Written by: Sigmund Brouwer
Published by: WaterBrook Press
I read a few different Sigmund Brouwer books in the past and always enjoyed them, and that is why I chose to read The Orphan King despite the fact that I don’t usually read fantasy type books.
The Orphan King is the story of Thomas, a young man who was raised by abusive monks in a monastery. With the help of a random group of companions, Thomas sets out to rescue and rule a unjust land.
Who the book is for:
I just realized right now, by looking at the back of the book, that this is a young adult book… I think it is appropriate for adults, as well.
What I liked:
The characters in this book are interesting.
The interactions between the characters are fun to read about.
What I didn’t like:
Some of this book is kind of hard to follow. As you can tell from my little summary of the book above, I still don’t really know what the story was all about.
I found this book somewhat interesting, despite the fact that it isn’t a genre I usually read.
I give The Orphan King 3 out of 5 stars.
*I will not be adding this book to my bookshelf.
