Time Has Passed… In the three years since Maria Morris found the farmer-boy-prince, the Followers have multiplied. As Wyndemere’s empire cracks and unrest rises, the Legatee orchestrates the Rebellion. Danger Has Not Disappeared...But Neither Has Hope Though the overthrow of the tyrannical regime is imminent, Maria’s role as the “woman who started it all” is not widely known. So why the foreboding of danger? Promise floats in the air. Many around her find happiness, even as the tension spirals toward a breaking point. But Maria flounders. What does Maria Morris want to do with her life? What is her destiny…now? Rendered Powerless, Maria Must Make A Painful Choice… One That Will Alter the Future of the Galaxy Forever When James invites her to headquarters where Maria assumes a new role among The Followers, tragedy strikes. The enemies she had thought long gone are capable of far more than she imagined. Will she have the courage to stand for what she believes, no matter the cost? Will she have the strength to surrender her dreams when all seems lost and she can do nothing at all?

My Review

5 Star Rating

The final installment of the Destiny Trilogy picks up 3 years after book #2. The Followers have been building in number, in faith, and battle apparatus. The time is at hand for the Rebellion to overthrow the tyrannical government... In other words, it's the big climax of the series, and you don't want to miss it!

Even though what was Maria's destiny has now multiplied itself, spreading across the galaxy now, she finds herself doing the mundane chores of household work, pondering what her role in the universe is, again. How will her final destiny intertwine with the galaxy's need for renewal? God's answer is nothing short of awe-inspiring – miracles included.

What I found in this particular volume in an graceful lesson in faith. Relying on our own strength will get us nowhere; it only creates stress and makes our lives less enjoyable. However, relying on God's strength will take you farther than you could have ever dreamed possible. He's ready to catch you when you fall, and He'll open a brand new door for you that you never even saw by yourself.

Get ready for a thrilling and wholesome adventure! Christian and homeschool families will love this sci-fi series.

Available on Amazon in paperback and e-book format.
