    Great read

    This is my first read by this author and I have to say bravo. I loved the action and while it isn't the in your face action of some fantasy reads it has been an enjoyable read. This author does interject biblical principals into the story and lives are changed. I love that she continually has her characters standing and enforcing them reminding others to lean on God. The Sept-Son stands firm in his belief in God even when it is held against him. This may not be a book where it is expected but this author does show a strong message without preaching. The story itself is a little slower than I normally like but there is plenty going on with world building, tension and intrigue that I am looking forward to the next book in the series. While I can understand some apprehension with it being a biblical based read and the subject matter the author does well incorporating it all into a great read. I love Z. Her strength and humility, her desire to learn more but stay in God's service, seeking Him for her strength and guidance. It's well written and leaves you with so much to look forward to as the action heats up.

    Fantastic Start to a New Series

    Seventh Born is a fantastical tale about a girl named Zezelia who was born the seventh child, in place of the hoped for seventh son. A disappointment to her parents, she decides to try and fulfill her role as best as she can, being a good daughter in the hopes of marrying well and restoring her family's prestige in the eyes of the court. However, she discovers she holds a rare give, a Talent beyond anything she could have ever hoped for. And, under the persuasion of Errol, a Trainer, her father allows Zezelia to be trained, even though girls aren't usually considered worth the effort. Meanwhile, Hadrian, a seventh son of a seventh son, gains a high office in the government, much to his distress. He feels called on, by the Almighty, to perform this duty, even though he'd rather decline when it is offered. Not believing in the goddess, who all others seem to rely on, he is considered a bit of an outcast and potential harbinger of doom to the government. At least that's what a certain party would have everyone else believe. While Zezelia is training, Hadrian learns of a break-off group of Talents hoping to use their abilities to overthrow the government. As the Sept Son, second in rank only to the High King, he has to find a way to stop this nonsense, while finding a way to protect Zezelia from this group who will steal away anyone with a Talent they can for their cause. The story is fast paced, with a mix of tender moments, as well as action, intrigue, and danger. Seventh Born is destined to be a great classic in fantasy literature. I didn't want to put it down. And when the book ended before the real craziness started, I couldn't believe it. I wanted more and can honestly say I don't want to wait until the next book is out. I give this one five stars.
