Tom and Son Jesus are two boys - one black and the other white - who have been mysteriously ordained at birth to spark the flames of change. Best friends, they spend their days daydreaming, fishing, and trying to escape work. But their fun abruptly comes to a halt when they discover a bone during a fanciful runaway. The bone turns out to be part of the skeletal remains of Son Jesus' long-missing father.

Sheriff Frank Rucker, returned a hero from World War II, begins an investigation that unmasks a racially motivated killer known only as Pegleg.

    " The adventures of Sage/Jaron continues. You know with an opening sentence like "I arrived early for my assassination..." that it's not going to be a boring book. Well, maybe it could be, but this one was NOT! I admit the first part of the book took me a bit to get into (probably my mood...we just moved), but when it picks up, it really picks up. I love that this is a book that I can read with my kids, and it's entertaining for them and for me. They haven't read it yet, but this summer I'm going to gently push the first in this series towards my son who loves to read. You can't go wrong with a book involving pirates, sword fights, traitors, going under disguise to save your kingdom...for the second time, etc. It's fast paced, and action packed. I'm can't wait for the last book to come out. There are A LOT of loose ends that need to be tied up. "

    " The continuing story of young Jaron/Sage as he strives to become the ruler he's meant to be. I found The Runaway King to be a solid read, though not as captivating as The False Prince. I'm hoping it was just middle book syndrome... I just found some parts of the book to be too dragged out, or maybe too similar to the first book. I can't quite put my finger on it. I'm eager to read the third book still, I can't wait to see how this story ends! "

    " Just as wonderful as the False Prince! "

    " Oh my god, this book was just SO good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 12/14/2012

    " This book series is tons o fun. Perfect to read to younger kids w an intense scene or two omitted. Fine for Tweens to read. Great dialogue. Very funny internal monologue. Reminds me a lot of the ranger apprentice series as far as target reader. The editing is excellent. Just a good fun read. "

    " Words cannot describe how amazing this book was. I was having a TERRIBLE night and this book completly made up for it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy McClanahan | 12/18/2011

    " I liked this one even better than the first, which I really liked...maybe because I was reading it instead of listening to it. I loved the messages about loyalty and friendship and trust. I think this is a great series for children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noel Arndt Caryl | 6/27/2011

    " This is an awesome trilogy. "

    " Loved it. I enjoyed the first book, but I actually liked the sequel more. Many adults will enjoy this series, but definitely give it to younger readers in your life. "

    " Fucking.Awesome. WHEN IS THE NEXT BOOK COMING OUT?! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 7/11/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book. It reminds me of "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett. Well written historical fiction about people in post WWII Georgia.
    Dick Hill delivers another superior narration. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 4/21/2009

    " Read a couple of times, each time I get more out of it. Definitely a page-turner and a beautifully unraveling mystery. Son Jesus stole my heart. "

    " One of my favorites.........shows that we can break away from "How It Has Always Been"!!
    A masterpiece......... "

    " Great book! Good story of the South and children growing up in the times of segregation. Quick read too! "
