A thrilling conclusion to the trilogy: My review of "A Crown in the Stars"

A Crown in the Stars

Book three in The Genesis Trilogy continues the story of the Tower of Babel that began in book two, He Who Lifts the Skies. Despite the death of their ruler Nimr-Rada, the inhabitants of the Great City have continued on with his plans to erect the Tower of Babel as part of their rebellion against the Most High. Keren, who was introduced in the second book and had been a captive of Nimr-Rada in the Great City, has since married and had a family of her own. When her daughter Shoshannah becomes trapped in the Great City, she becomes the focus of Nimr-Rada's son and former wife's obsession for revenge of Nimr-Rada's death, and ends up at the centre of a show-down between the rebellious people and the Most High.

A Crown in the Stars is a fabulous conclusion to The Genesis Trilogy, allowing the reader to imagine with vivid detail the state of the Earth's people following the flood and the rush to rebel against God. Readers will be pleased to revisit characters from prior books, including Annah and Keren and Sharah, while coming to care about new characters like Shoshannah. The author has again created life-like characters who you either quickly come to like or you develop strong feelings against their wicked ways. Reading this novel made me ponder on God's amazing patience, that so soon after God destroyed the Earth and miraculously saved Noah and his family, that people could quickly forget about the Most High and return to evil. A Crown in the Stars is a captivating read, filled with deep emotions, high-paced adventure, and with a sobering conclusion that serves as a warning to us all.

I give this book my highest recommendation of 5 out of 5 stars, and indeed recommend the entire series. These books will long live on in my mind, and I plan on returning to them often throughout the years, for they have earned a permanent place on my shelves.
