A Daring Sacrifice is the second book in the An Uncertain Choice series, however, it stands alone in its story line. This is a young adult title and I appreciated the fact that the characters were young themselves. While they both had fighting and survival experience, and their relationship grew in the story, many of Collin and Juliana’s actions and beliefs early on in the story accurately depicted their youthful take on things. Whether it was Juliana not recognizing the feelings she was beginning to have for Collin, or the delay of Collin really understanding the seriousness of the plight of the peasants, they had growing to do and it was delightful to watch them do just that.
I really liked both of these characters. They were both brave individuals who showed a true willingness to sacrifice everything for those they loved. I really liked Collin and how he knew his heart for Juliana early on.
This story contains action, drama, romance, intrigue, and a message of faith all tied up in a book that is appropriate for the teenage audience. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
