‘The Destiny of a Galaxy” by Sarah Holman

Book Three in the tightly knit Destiny Series

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars

 

About the Book:

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 Thoughts:

What a great conclusion to this three book series! This one was really packed with action, excitement, and reminders to trust God for our strength – apart from Him we can do nothing.
In The Destiny of a Galaxy, which starts off some years later from the second book,Maria begins the story questioning God’s destiny for her, feeling left behind and bored. But soon enough adventures unfold, drawing her into the thick of it. We see her take joy, stand up against horrible trials, and learn to surrender everything that is dear to her to the Lord. It’s a powerful story, to be sure.
There was a relationship “plot-twist” I didn’t see coming, but I can’t say I didn’t approve in the end. ;)
We got to see the familiar characters of Quint (love him!), Winter, and James, as well as meet another new face or two.
The dangers, the trials, and the joys were very present in this story, and you become easily engrossed. I’m generally not much of a sci-fi reader, but this series has definitely kept my attention!
Well done, Miss Holman.
