“The Hunter’s Son” by Gregg Luke
This book was adventurous and action packed from chapter 1! The book description sounded really exciting and I’m really glad I read this book even though I wasn’t familiar with the author. I finished it in 2 nights because I couldn’t put it down. Wow!
I’ll be giving it to my teenage son to read because I know he will enjoy it because of all the adventure and because the main character Jarem is a teenage boy.
Very well written, steady plot, highly recommend!
I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.
About the Book
For as long as Jarem can remember, the war between the Nephites and Lamanites has raged on. But for the young Nephite, there is security in the knowledge that the ruthless Lamanite warriors would never dare cross the border into his village—until the unthinkable happens. A Lamanite raiding party defies boundaries, destroying the village and killing Jarem’s family. Enslaved to his enemies, Jarem must rely on his faith in God as he endures unimaginable hardships at the hands of the Lamanites—including being cruelly separated from the woman he loves.
But even amid trials, there is goodness to be found. When Chemish, Master Healer of the Lamanites, takes ownership of Jarem, the young man discovers unexpected kindness. Jarem becomes the healer’s apprentice, and soon Chemish finds his soul stirred by the Christian faith of his student. But even as the bond between the two unlikely friends grows, the hatred of the Lamanites spreads. It is no longer enough for them to own the Nephites—they want to exterminate every one of them, and even personal slaves are no longer safe. Now, Jarem’s only hope of survival is a dangerous escape that will take him through the heart of Lamanite land . . .
