The Death Of The Miller’s
Son: Marcus I
Marcus, a young slave, saves a king and
embarks on a new life.
did I think of the book?
"I want you to kill the King..."
Taken as a slave at the tender age of five, Marcus —
the Miller's son — knows more than most eight-year-olds about cruelty and
death. As a slave, he has no choice but to do as he is told. But Marcus is no
murderer, and although he has heard terrible things about King Halcome, he will
not kill him.
With an astonishing act of bravery, Marcus defies
his master, and in doing so, he changes his destiny forever...
Oh, Boy!! What a journey author M.G.D has just taken
me on! The Death Of The Miller's Son: Marcus I by M.G.D is an action-packed
adventure about warring factions in a fictional historical kingdom. On one side
there is the evil and power obsessed Prescott, and on the other, there is King
Halcome. Our young hero, Marcus, finds himself stuck in the middle.
This book has a very slow and somewhat confusing
start, but you really need to stick with it because once Marcus saves the King,
the storytelling is sublime. I had a job to put this book down. It was a very
compelling read. I grew to care very much about the characters, especially for
Jonathan and Eron, I thought M.G.D did an amazing job of portraying these two
in particular. I grew very fond of Marcus, as he struggled to understand what
was happening to him. He knows how to be a slave, but he doesn't know how to be
a child, or a son for that matter. This pulled at my heartstrings. Beautiful,
M.G.D. certainly knows how to build up tension in
her story — who is friend and who is foe?There is betrayal and courageous acts of loyalty. It is also a story of
discovery—what makes Marcus, the
Miller's son, so special?
I really enjoyed this book and it is a story that I
will come back to.
