This novel of page-turning action and adventure poses the question, If a society had no knowledge of Christianity, and then a Bible were discovered, what would happen? Four hundred years after a deadly virus and nuclear war destroyed the modern world, a new and noble civilization emerges. In this kingdom, called Chiveis, snow-capped mountains provide protection, and fields and livestock provide food. The people live medieval-style lives, with almost no knowledge of the ancient world. Safe in their natural stronghold, the Chiveisi have everything they need, even their own religion. Christianity has been forgotten--until a young army scout comes across a strange book. With that discovery, this work of speculative fiction takes readers on a journey that encompasses adventure, romance, and the revelation of the one true God.

Through compelling narrative and powerful character development, The Sword speaks to God's goodness, his refusal to tolerate sin, man's need to bow before him, and the eternality and power of his Word. Fantasy and adventure readers will be hooked by this first book in a forthcoming trilogy.

    " Kindle freebie. This is Christian fiction set in the far future after apocalyptic events regress civilization to medieval living. All knowledge of Christianity is gone, but the main characters begin to discover it but the high priestess of the idol worship practiced is powerful and is bent on crushing any influence of the god of the cross. A little hard to get into at first, conversations have a mix of modern slang that doesn't seem to fit, and the characters didn't always seem consistent. But overall it kept my interest. It is the start of a series so events do not meet a final resolution. "

    " Decent read. Nice try. "

    " So far, I'm halfway through, and I really like this book. It has taken me a while to get this far in it only because I have no free time to read, but I really do enjoy the plot and the characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joshua Proctor | 12/24/2013

    " I was excited to read this when I heard the premise of it from a friend but from the beginning I could tell it was going to be a long journey getting through this book. The main issue was that it was poorly written. Everything is explaining in black and white and some pieces are left out. Ultimately, I had to put it down half way through. It just no longer seemed worth reading. In the end, it was a good premise for a novel but a bad execution. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julianna Payne | 12/24/2013

    " I liked the spiritual aspect of the book. God's ways are diffidently not our ways. I also liked how Anastasia was a strong, capable woman but also cried. She doesn't deny or try to hind her feelings. I always appreciate a good Christian book that has new ideas in it. "

    " I found this book a little hard to get into but I continued on! And I found it got heaps better. An loved it. Very repetitive but still very good "

    " AMAZING! Mind blowing, descriptive, and a very exciting and enjoyable adventure! I will always love this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 11/19/2013

    " A really easy read, great story, history does repeat itself. And just proves that Christianity has never been tolerated by the world, but because God so loved us, He made a way "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beata | 11/8/2013

    " Not my typical read. I found this book on the Kindle free book list and absolutely loved it. Purchased the 2nd book in the trilogy. Waiting impatiently for the last book to be released! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seth | 9/22/2013

    " Thoroughly enjoyable book in which the significance of the religion of the ancients proclaims relevance in the futuristic lives of the book's central characters. Full of valor and romance! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randall | 8/12/2013

    " Awesome book! It's a little slow in the beginning while setting the stage then really grabs your attention and holds it until the very end leaving you ready for the next book in the trilogy! "

    " a great trilogy - if you liked Tolkein, Wheeler, Dekker - this one is for you..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blue Jay Mockingbird | 11/4/2012

    " An interesting story. I love how it's set in the future, and how Teo and Ana are searching for the Word of God! I did find it dry, and even 'corny' at times, but the way it was written and the story itself certainly made this a book that will stay on my shelf for a while! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 8/23/2012

    " A good read. Not the most compelling fantasy novel, but it makes up for it's shaky pacing with an interesting look at Christianity in it's birth. The community that forms in the book practice a pure and culturally unadulterated living out of what the bible says. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary | 6/12/2012

    " My wife really enjoyed this book, so I am giving it a try. While a fan of the fantasy genre, I've never been one to read Christian fiction. I'm curious to see if the religious aspect is heavy-handed, or if it flows well within the story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Terry | 5/11/2012

    " Great idea for a book, poor execution. Writing is dull and plodding. Made it half way through the first book and will not be reading the rest of the trilogy "
