"Protecting the Poor" by Amanda Tero Blog Tour and GiveAway


Sheriff Feroci is now lord over the province, and Abtshire has become a pit of injustice. Being forced into the lord’s service does not give Dumphey as many opportunities to help the poor as he desires. When attempts on his life drive him into the forest, this freedom opens a world of possibilities for helping others. But how can he do so when he is running for his life? And does God want him to do more than simply feed the poor?

Noel has always hidden behind the shadow of his older brother, Dumphey. When life forces him to stand on his own, will he still follow God in the corrupt world in which he lives? Would God really call him to do something that is beyond his power to do?

As Lord Feroci's sinister plot comes to light, each lad has a choice to make. A choice that could cost them their lives.

The Tales of Faith series happened almost by accident. I don't believe that there really are any accidents with our heavenly Father overseeing things, but I definitely wasn't planning on writing a retelling series. One evening while watching a movie with my sisters, a random question came up: "What if the beast was Belle's father?" Once I wrote "Befriending the Beast," I had people asking me if other retellings were in the making. That encouraged me to think up a Cinderella retelling for "The Secret Slipper." When the pages closed on “The Secret Slipper,” I knew there had to be at least one more story from these people. Robin Hood has pretty much always been a favorite classic tale of mine. As soon as I realized Dumphey (from "The Secret Slipper") could fill the role of a Robin Hood type of guy--and Feroci as the Sheriff of Nottingham--I knew exactly how the series would end.

It wouldn't be a release party without a giveaway! One U.S. Winner will receive the complete paperback Tales of Faith series, and one International Winner will receive the complete eBook series.   a Rafflecopter giveaway

I am going to start this review different then I have ever done before, because I am going to say that I am glad that the Scriptures verses refer to in the story are written out in their entirely and the verse at the back of the book and after the question to ponder, there is verses to getting to know the Master Author, which is Jesus.

"Protecting the Poor" by Amanda Tero is a retelling of Robin Hood with a Christian theme.  It really brings the whole series "Tales of Faith" to a delightful end.

I kept thinking while reading, this would be a story that my husband would like if it was a movie.
 I like that this series is one that any teen or a younger child could read and I wouldn't have to worry about them reading words or reading scenes that would be displeasing to God. There is violence with arrows and swords but a reader excepts these in this type of story.

I don't usually like these type of stories either in print or movies, but because it has a Christian theme and points to faith in God, I would watch the movie, if it became one, with my husband.

My favorite character has to be Noel because he is the one that had to have the most courage and do something that he has never had to do before without any training!

I recommend reading the whole series and have a whole different outlook on these fairy tales. Amanda Tero's retelling of these three fairy tales introduces readers to Christian truths that they might never have heard of before and shows that happy ending are not because of fairy godmothers and wishes, but because of God goodness and love.

I was given a complementary copy by the author. These opinions are my own.
