He fights for his freedom. She fights for her life. Together, they fight for each other.
After watching Roman soldiers drag his parents away to their death, David, a young Hebrew, is sold and enslaved to serve at a villa outside of Rome. As David trains to become a skilled fighter, he works hard to please his master and hopes to earn his freedom. However, an opportunity to escape tempts him with its whispering call. Freedom beckons, but invisible chains hold him captive to the master’s granddaughter, an innocent girl with a fiery spirit. David vows to protect Alethea from his master, the murderous patriarch, and contrives a daring plan—sacrifice his own life to save hers.
My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
I loved the story, “The Master’s Wall”. The main characters of David and Althea kept me glued to the pages. Their story of sacrifice, faith, and suffering in early Christian history gave faces to the things people of that age had to go through. The action and adventure were non-stop, from the first page where David tried to free his parent from the Roman guards to the riviting end. I also loved the theme of sacrifice and redemption that threaded through the pages. David especially had me cheering for him, an orphaned Christian sold into slavery at age 10 and bound by his word and his desire to protect Althea to keep him from escaping. This novel is well worth reading. I didn’t give it five stars only because it lacked development of secondary characters and explained at times too much that the reader could get on thier own. The writing wasn’t the best, but the story more than made up for it. Overall, it was a great read.
