"The Messiah's Sign" by Amber Schamel

Book Description 
The Messiah's Sign is the second book in the Days of Messiah series. It follows the storyline of Book One, but from the husband's point of view. Here's what it's about:
Dreams…they shouldn’t bother him, but when Tyrus’ worst nightmare is vindicated, he has no choice but to face reality. His wife has been unfaithful, and God has punished her with the most feared disease in the land: leprosy. Banishing her to the leper colony, Tyrus struggles to raise their son alone and protect him from a merciless outlaw. But when Malon begins following the teacher from Nazareth, what remains of their business and reputation is at stake. Can Tyrus save his son from the beguiling lies of a false Messiah before he loses the only thing he has left?
The book releases on October 16th, so be sure to add it to your To-Read list along with the others in the series. 

Author Bio: 
Bestselling author Amber Schamel writes riveting stories that bring HIStory to life. She has a passion for history, books and her Savior. This combination results in what her readers call "historical fiction at its finest". A homeschool graduate from a family of 12 children, Amber found her calling early in life. First published at age 21, she has continued to hone her craft. Between ministry, family and working in their family businesses, Amber loves to connect with readers. Find her on the Stitches Thru Time blog, or on any of the major social media sites.  

My Review:"The Messiah's Sign" by Amber Schamel is just as exciting as the other in this series. In the " Healer Touch" we read Aaliyah story and how she was cast out  of her husband's home and forced into the Leper's colony and in "The Saga Begins"  we learn about Tyrus's family escape from Rome and his decision to marry Aaliyah, and in"The Messiah's Sign" we read Tyrus's story and how his decisions accept his wife and son.

These stories are short but have such full details that the reader doesn't really realize that the story isn't longer . These stories seem real and not Christian Fiction at all. Amber Scamel knows how to pull her readers into her stories and makes her readers feel the characters heartaches and pains.

I waited forever to get the ARC copy and it was well worth the wait, only one thing I dislike,now  there is a wait for the third volume "The Master's Calling"

Tyrus has been missing his wife and wondering if she could be still alive with leprosy after ten years. He is doing the best he can with raising his son on his own and trying to deal with the troubles that beset him when he happen upon Barabbas The Thief. 

Meanwhile Tyrus's friend Peter and son Malon begin to follow Jesus of Galilee. The rabbis do not like that and will not tolerate it.

But what happens when Tyrus meets Jesus for himself and Jesus knows things about him that no-one knows! Is this Jesus a fake or is he real?  What happens when Tyrus founds out the answer to this very question?

I was given a ARC copy for my honest review and I am really happy to say this book as well as the others in the series have all received five stars!
