Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue by Chuck Black

Reviewed by Savvy Scholars co- owner Olivia

Absolutely Amazing.

Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue has my top vote. In this tale of life, death,  love and passion, Lady Carliss finds herself fighting for the not just her own live, but the lives of dozens of people, and the secret love she can never be with.

This is the fourth installment of Chuck Black's series Knights of Arrethtrae. Lady Carliss is a master of the sword and the bow. She is one of the few knights to be called by the King and Prince to fight for only good and their sake.

In this book we balance good and evil both representing spiritual things. The Prince and the King are an analogy of our LORD Jesus and our GOD. Where as the evil Lord Malco is an analogy of Satan or commonly called the devil. It is mainly written from a Christian perspective.

Lady Carliss faces Lord Malco, the Shadow knights, Esca lizards, and the strange Waters of Moorue bravely and with valor. This book has sword fights, poisons lizards, and a lovely love story, all together making a magnificent plot story and read.

Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue has twenty - four chapters, plus, chapter by chapter discussion questions.

  Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest  by Chuck Black
     Reviewed by Savvy Scholars co - owner Olivia

Destinies Desire…

Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest is a true knight’s tale. When Sir Rowan meets an all time Knight and personal hero, Sir Aldwyn, he will get a chance to live his dream becoming a knight of the Prince. When his fame starts uprising he finds it hard to stay dedicated.

After Sir Rowan is dumped to die alone, he finds someone to help him out of his pain and suffering. Rowan starts to feel more strength build in his body and more comfortable with the person who is healing more then his old wounds and scars.

Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest is the sixth book in the series The Knights of Arrethtrae by Chuck Black. In this book – like the other Knights of Arrethtrae – you balance good and evil. The Prince as a picture of JESUS gives Sir Rowan a second chance -- like he gives all of you -- after Rowan leaves because of fame. While Lucius being a picture of Satan uses people to steer Rowan away from the Prince.

Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest are for youths to enjoy a knight’s tale while understanding the ways of the devil and who he really is. Sir Rowan has twenty – three chapters and discussion questions.

                    A Conversation with God by Alton Gansky
                    Reviewed by Savvy Scholars co-owner Olivia

A Conversation With GOD is not something I would recommend to anyone.

Although some of the points and ‘Conversations’ are some what correct I did not like that the intention was to sound like GOD was talking to me. Not because I thought I was too good for this book but because it made GOD seem not as High and not as Mighty. Almost as if He were a man speaking and not your Heavenly Father that is All Knowing and Powerful.

It also had commentaries from Paul, Peter, Joshua, Jeremiah and Jesus (and a few more) which I thought was disrespectful to GOD. Paul and GOD are not equals. Jesus and Peter are not equals. Peter and Paul are terrible sinners just like you and me. Jesus is GOD the two different commentaries are unnecessary. Jesus the Son, God the Father, and The Holy Ghost are the Trinity. They are three in one.

One topic was “God, is Jesus really your Son?” when I saw this question I really stopped  and thought “You can not be saved unless you know: Jesus, God’s Son, died for me on the cross and ALL the things in the bible are true because GOD said they were true and there is no way without The Word Of GOD (John 1:1).” And since that is the case then you would know Jesus is God’s Son. Before you are saved there is a barrier between you and GOD and that barrier is sin you can not rightly understand the bible until your sin is gone.

Another topic in this book was “What will happen to people who don’t believe?” well in a simple answer… John 3:16. “…and whosoever shall believeth in him shall NOT perish but have everlasting life.” So if you do not believe in Jesus you will perish, and in the bible perish means perish to Hell because you are in sin, you can not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Thus you go to where Satan is; Hell.

And the last topic I will discuss is “Why should we pray?” for an unsaved person I can see why this is a question but for a Christian-- reading their bible-- the answer is every where. Besides the fact GOD said “Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 and “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” Ephesians 6:18. There should not be the question "Why" but maybe "When" and in those verses it tells you.

I also did not like the points this book made about Abortion, GOD said even an unborn baby is still a baby, (that might be why they say “unborn BABY” but then again…) killing is more then a choice.
Homosexuality, in the bible He calls them Abominations so yes, in their wicked ways He does hate them.
Political roles, Heaven, Hell, and suffering are some of the other things talked about.
And again I did not like the book trying to sound like GOD himself was talking to you; the Bible is here for that. It is a little insulting to GOD. Revelation 1:13 - 16, 10:1 - 3, 1 John 1:8 - 10
