Synopsis:

She must protect the Spear of Destiny at all costs He must bring the lady safely home But the powers of darkness chasing them have other ideas

Lady Cristiana D'Clere, the new protector of the Spear, is on the run from the steward of her estate, who has kept her drugged for years. All she ever wanted was to be safe, marry well, and raise a bevy of wee ones. Instead, she is far from home, chased by men intent on killing her and stealing the Spear of Christ for its incredible powers.

Sir Jarin the Just has never forgotten the woman who stirred his heart like no other. Determined to find and restore her to her proper place as Lady of Luxley Castle, he sets out on a journey fraught with more dangers than he ever could have foreseen. The biggest danger is to his heart, for he has vowed to remain unfettered and never surrender his freedom to a woman.

Though the Spear protects the couple along their journey, Cristiana must learn to trust the One whose blood stains the relic, while Jarin must learn to rely on powers far above his own knightly skills. For the dark magic that is chasing them may take all the powers of heaven to defeat.

Goodreads Amazon Barnes and Noble Book Depository



Beloved characters from She Walks in Power return in She Walks in Love to continue the adventures of the Spear. This story focuses on Cristiana and Jarin.

Spiritual warfare was again a prominent subject. The attacks of the malevolent warlock and his apprentice came in the form of very convincing illusions and poisonous spells which could only be defeated through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Cristiana had a tender and compassionate heart and constantly put others before herself. She was quite different from her sister and did not have her strength of faith or even the brave and athletic tendencies. She had felt abandoned by God and family and feared it was because she wasn’t worthy or lovable.

Jarin carried a mountain of guilt and grief and felt he could not be forgiven and would never be worthy of the love of a good woman. Yet he was no longer interested in his riotous lifestyle since he had met Lady Cristiana.

The adventure was interesting with twists and surprises. Not only were the events unexpected, the history revealed was as well.

I found the spiritual warfare aspect darker than in the first book. With a new apprentice to the warlock and the steward getting more desperate to regain the spear and the control over the estate, the attacks grew in intensity.

It was emphasized in She Walks in Power that the spear had no inherent power of its own, yet everything pointed to the contrary. This is again mentioned here, and yet Lady Cristiana spent significant time and effort healing the sick using its power. Although she didn’t have even the faith of a mustard seed. So that made it appear that it was the spear itself with the power, not God working through it. And, yes, that bothered me.

Overall, it was an interesting second book for the Protectors of the Spear series and it was very clear the author wanted to bring glory to God through her words. If you can look past the improbabilities (you are reading fiction, so I imagine you can!), I recommend this to readers of Christian historical fiction.
