On Tour with Prism Book Tours
Mara didn’t know her parents were living a lie.
After learning a secret that causes Mara to question her heritage, she runs to Torindan, the High Hold of Faeraven, to seek the truth. What the innkeeper’s daughter doesn’t know is that Rand, the mysterious tracker she’s hired to guide her through the wilderness, has been sent on an errand that puts her life at risk.
Helping Mara furthers Rand’s purposes, but he doesn’t count on his emotions interfering.
With Faeraven on the brink of war, Rand is faced with a life-altering choice, Mara is torn between escape and learning the truth, and the future hangs in the balance.
Will Mara be heir to the Faeraven throne? Can Rand escape the terrors of the dungeon?
As Torindan and Pilaer prepare for battle, anything can happen.
Other Books in the Series
I eagerly anticipated reading SoJourner having recently enjoyed DawnSinger and WayFarer. Janalyn Voigt did not disappoint. The plot of SoJourner picks up a few years after WayFarer left off. There are a couple of surprises near the beginning of the book – one of which I had hoped for while reading WayFarer. Good vs. evil is a continued theme. Several of the characters in SoJourner will be familiar to those who have read the previous books. Voigt continues the fantasy world she previously created. I saw no discrepancies between the previous titles and this one.
Readers will agonize with Rand as his inner self wars between doing what he knows to be right and doing what needs to be done to gain his father’s acceptance. Which will he choose? Readers will also empathize with Mara as she learns her entire life has been a lie of sorts. Will she be able to make her way in a world unfamiliar to her?
I look forward to reading book 4 in the Tales of Faeraven series. I highly recommend reading these books in order in order to fully understand the plot.
Area of Potential Concern
SoJourner seems to have more violence and graphic descriptions than I remember in the first two books in the Tales of Faeraven series. I would not recommend this book for younger than high schoolers.
I would place SoJourner in my K-12 Christian school library but with the notation that it is for high school only.
I want to thanks Prism Book Tours for the complimentary e-copy of SoJourner.
