It was started in Magnus and Wings of Dawn and now the story of Thomas is being explored in greater detail.

Thomas was raised in a monastery and now must leave to save a knight from being hung and to gain two more traveling companions and go to Magnus. He carries himself well even though he is in unfamiliar territory.

Will his companions help him obtain his goals or will they stop his progress along the way?

About the author- Sigmund Brouwer has over three million books in print and has done a Rock and Roll Literacy presentation all over North America for the past 20 years. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Canada and Tennessee.

My thoughts- Sometimes I have to search high and low for books that are suitable for teen boys. This book I would recommend, because there are no vampires, werewolves, and little romance.

One thing I didn’t like about The Orphan King is that the synopsis on the back doesn’t have much to do with what happens in this book. It seems that it discusses what the series is about and not much more.

I did like how the characters were developed and the details in the scenery. I was surprised at how much mental strength Thomas had. He was an orphan and raised in an monastery, to things that I thought would really decrease his chances of success. It would seem that others could learn from Thomas- that persevering through the rough spots will make you strong.

I am looking forward to the other books in this series and I recommend this book to teen boys.

Disclosure of Material Connection- I received The Orphan King by Sigmund Brouwer for free from the WaterBrook Multnomah “Blogging For Books” program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
