Beginning February 3, through Febuary 19, the Christian Fiction Review Blog is proud to spotlight Nor Iron Bars a Cage by Caprice Hokstad. This is the second book in the Ascendancy Trilogy, a very worthy sequel to The Duke's Handmaid. During this week there will be daily articles published at the main CFRB site as well as numerous reviews, interviews, samples of the book, musings, etc. on blogsites of CFRB members. I will be posting several times myself this week, including a fresh review, an interview with Caprice Hokstad, and some of my thoughts concerning various aspects of the novel. To start out the week, though, here is a synopsis and links for more, including the CFRB link.
Two baby boys are lost in the hostile country of Ganluc--one the firstborn son of a prince and princess (third in line for the Royal Throne of Latoph) and the other an illegitimate half-breed born to an Itzi slavegirl and fathered by a licentious owner who was executed for treason. Yet Duke Vahn is determined to rescue both of these boys. Scores of knights and bounty hunters have risked their lives trying to retrieve them, yet none can even find a clue to their whereabouts. When all else fails, a bold plan is proposed to send Vahn's most trusted servant posing as a runaway slave in order to gather information. Reluctantly, Vahn sends a strange trio off to Ganluc--his brave captain, a middle-aged healer, and an Itzi slave. Little does he know what challenges await both the trio and his own house, now forced to survive without its key leaders.
