“From the Dark to the Dawn” by Alicia Willis

“Decadent Rome, 61 Anno Domini. The masters of the universe have crushed the Iceni rebellion with an iron hand, slaughtering and enslaving her people. 

For Philip, his existence as a captive means living to hatred. He despises his rich, young master, resenting his life of servitude and the wrestling feats Marcus forces him to perform. Bitterness engulfs his soul until he only lives for the day when he will crush the might of Rome.

Then Christianity enters the picture…”

I had the privilege to read this book some time last year, and when I got to the end I had experienced almost the gamut of human emotion. (Okay, there wasn’t much humor, but considering the type of book it is, it would have been a little misplaced, and so I didn’t even miss it.)

Well thought out and researched, it is a wonderfully woven tail of bitterness, rebellion, revenge, and ultimately love and forgiveness. It portrays a daily, surrendered walk with the Lord, and is very thought-provoking. 

Because of a scene near the end that involves a  woman at a slave auction, I recommend it for readers ages 18+. It is handled very well, and I don’t consider it improper, just might not be the best for more impressionable minds.

You don’t won’t to miss this challenging and encouraging tale! 

Alicia’s next book is coming out in November so at that point, I hope to do an author interview. In the mean time, why don’t check her out via her blog, website, Facebook page, or Google+!

Oh, and before you go, why don’t you hop on over to Amazon and grab her book!
