Acre’s Orphan: (The Lucca La Pou Stories #2) by Wayne Turmel
I got this book as a gift from the author, and I loved it! I wasn’t sure when I started it, not real sure what it was about. But I started reading it, and could not put it down, word to word, paragraph to paragraph, chapter to chapter then it was done, and I went, but….
I am happy to hear there is a third book in the making for this series.
As you can tell I was sucked in from the first word, pulled into the pageantry, suffering, and intrigue that was so much a part of that world. The Crusades, since I have not read the first book not sure which one, I will get the first soon. The dry desert, with it’s days of pouring rain, relentless sun, open night skies. I was there. And Lucca, our hero, his love of cities, dislike and distrustfulness of open desert, yeah, for a city rat, I totally got that. Except for not knowing which Crusade I was in, usually means the first one, I didn’t feel lost in his world. His memories, nightmares, general statements by other charters, filled in most of what I needed to know.
This is a wonderful stand alone book, I am sure the first will add to the story, and the third even more, but there is no way you can go wrong with this book. If you like historical, specutive fiction this is a great young audult to pick up. If you have or know a child that might like this and needs something to read, this might just be somethin to get them started. A five star read.
Thank you, Mr. Turmel, for sharing your world with us, and you daughter for telling you “No!” to the way you wanted to end the first one. Can’t wait for the next one. https://www.amazon.com/Acres-Orphans-Historical-fiction-Crusades-ebook/dp/B07MDYDR44/ref=sr_1_1?crid=39RQBSIRZI4A8&keywords=acre%27s+orphans&qid=1551030743&s=gateway&sprefix=acre%27s+%2Caps%2C244&sr=8-1
