I received the following book from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
So excited to be presenting Judy DuCharme’s new release with Prism Book Group – Society of the L.A.M.B. You all may remember Judy from my recent postings about The Cheesehead Devotional. This foray in fiction is quite a bit different from the sports-themed devotional but I found myself enjoying it immensely.
Society of the L.A.M.B.: Love. Authority. Mercy. Boldness.
In a raucous colony of those who celebrate dark desires, Josiah and other LAMBers who believe King Glory lives are hunted and imprisoned…or worse.
But hope and truth endure in the midst of total danger. After fleeing the colony, Josiah finds light and hope at his grandfather’s house, where a secret gathering of LAMBers have escaped the watchers. After learning of the power of the shout within himself, Josiah is chosen to carry the truth to others. But how can he return to the colony without being captured and put to death?
The shout cannot be denied. Josiah knows his mission.

Knowing I enjoyed Judy DuCharme’s writing in nonfiction was one thing, seeing that translate into fiction was a whole other animal. Luckily, I found her to be an excellent storyteller and one that I can see me becoming a huge fan of – I honestly can’t wait to read more from her! This book was truly entertaining, and though you get a peek inside what the book contains from the blurb above it does not at all give the book justice. The world that DuCharme so carefully crafted is one that I found myself deeply lost in. I did not want to put this book down, and the chills that the last line of the blurb give you are in no way close to the chills that you will get while reading the book itself. An engaging read that I can’t recommend enough, if you’re looking for something a little different in your reading, this is a book to give a try. I’d even go so far as to make a C.S. Lewis comparison. This would make a PERFECT stocking stuffer this holiday season.
