N: The Shadow of the Cross by Joyce Swann
This is the second story in the futuristic young adult series N. Children of arrested Christians are targeted. Petra and Rahm are trying to keep them safe. They move their hideout to Prayer Mountain. Their location must remain secret to protect them. When someone reaches out to them for help, can they trust him to keep their location a secret?
If you were targeted as a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? This is what ran through my mind as I read this short story. Petra and Rahm put their lives on the line to keep these kids safe. If they are caught they will be killed. Would you be willing to put your life on the line as they do?
You do not need to read these in order, but you know more of the characters’ backgrounds if you do.
I cannot wait to read the next installment. This one leaves you waiting for more. What will happen if they are discovered? Who is on their side? The Shadow of the Cross will keep you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what is going to happen next.
