    "This book for Christian teens is just alright in my opinion. It is not really written all that well and is a rather dry story that fails to grab the reader. It also comes off as very”preachy” which will greatly limit crossover success. You aren’t missing much here!"

    "If you enjoy reading and are a Christian, then "By Darkness Hid (Blood of Kings)" is a must read. It has meat enough for YA/Adult readers but gentle enough for MG levels. And it's got everything loved about a good, classic fantasy adventure plus subtle Christian undertones woven throughout. I really liked it and I finished the book wanting to launch right into the next one."

    "I have 2 nephews and 3 nieces and they love to read, so I not only bought this book for myself, I gave it to them for Christmas. They, and I, loved it. It demonstrates well how your plans aren't always going to work out and that you just need to trust in God. It's suspenseful and intriguing and you can't put it down. I even liked the opera parts. "
