Beneath the Forsaken City: A Review & a Giveaway!

We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead.  And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us. – 2 Corinthians 1:8-10

Conor and Aine have barely escaped Seare with their lives. Conor knows he must return to find the harp that could end the Red Druid’s reign of terror, but in the midst of their escape, he and Aine are torn apart once more. Surrounded by despair and thrown into as much danger as they left behind, Conor and Aine must cling to the whispers of Comdiu’s plans for them and the homeland that depends on their survival. But at what cost? Will they learn to depend on Comdiu completely? Or will they give up hope?


My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed this book. C. E. Laureano does a masterful job of creating a fantasy world that draws you in completely. We love how the story parallels the Christian walk… all the temptations and troubles that we face, and how God longs for our complete faith. 

The only warning I would give is that you read the first book before reading this one. This is the second book in the Song of Seare series and it’s easy to feel lost when you jump in to the middle of such a complex story. 

The first book, Oath of the Brotherhood, can be found here or here

This book, Beneath the Forsaken City, can be found here or here.
