Micah was only nine years old when his homeland was invaded. Taken hostage and give to the invading King, Micah’s life has now become a living hell.

I loved Spoils of War. The author pulls you right in from the beginning, but readers should be forewarned that the beginning of this story is rough and may make some readers uncomfortable. Micah is one of those characters that the reader will have no problem caring about, and the pain and suffering he goes through will tear at your heart. The character of Eli is as strongly written as Micah. The patience and understanding he shows the young man helps Micah on his road to healing. These two men fit together perfectly and I could not put the story down.

Although Spoils of War is very good, it was short, only about 70 pages, and felt as if there was more story that could have been told if the book was longer – hopefully the author has a sequel planned for these two. Readers should not let the length of this book dissuade them as this is one they do not want to miss.
