Book Review: Deliverance (The Moses Chronicles) And A Giveaway!

Today's review is of H.B. Moore's epic continuation of Moses's story, Deliverance.  I really enjoyed the first book in the series, Bondage, (you can see what I thought of it here) and couldn't wait to read this one. Moore has a writing style that completely draws me in to the time period and the characters' lives and this one was no different.

The book opens with Moses taking stock of his scars both emotionally and physically. His entire world has been turned upside down and he's feeling the consequences of what he's done and finding out his true identity. I love how Moore brings Moses to life in such a realistic way. The attention to detail is incredible and it felt like I was there with Moses every step of the way---when he's with the nomads, finding and falling in love with Zipporah, and when he finds out that God has a mission for him.

The author brings in other possibilities and another perspective to Moses's story with so much emotion and angst, combined with just enough reference to known events, that readers will be turning pages to see what happens even when they know the ending! This book is uplifting and full of adventure.  I can't wait for the third book in the series.

Be sure to scroll all the way down and enter the giveaway!

Here's the back copy:

Experience the life of Moses as never before, following his journey from fugitive of Egypt to prophet of God. In this exhilarating follow-up to H.B. Moore’s biblical drama The Moses Chronicles: Bondage, the account of Moses’s flight from Egypt continues. Moses’s life as he knew it is over. He has chosen to stand for his beliefs at the cost of being cast out of his royal home and family. He is free of the wickedness of Egypt, but peace is not to be found, for Moses is as much an aimless wanderer as those in the nomadic tribe he encounters in the wilderness.

Exhausted by long weeks of travel, he nevertheless jumps to action when he observes a group of young women accosted by a band of Badrayan men at a communal well. These lovely daughters of Jethro are grateful for his help, and their Midianite tribe welcomes Moses with open arms. As he learns the ways of the Midianites, his kinship with Jethro grows—as does his admiration of one of Jethro’s daughters, Zipporah. But when Moses suddenly receives a burning call to free the very people he has long oppressed, will he have the courage to return to the land from which he has been exiled?
