Waiting On Wednesday: The End of the Magi

September 18, 2019

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature that spotlights an up-and-coming release you are most excited about.

This week has me thinking a head to December for many reason. One, it hopefully won't be so hot any more....I'm mean really, it's September, and we're still rocking 100+ degrees. I'm kind of over it. Also, December is a time, even though busy, will be a time of being settled. So ready for that. Plus, December has Christmas! I love the lights, the sparkle, the Bible stories. It's memories.  

This book has me looking forward to the end of the year when we do think more on the birth of Jesus and the Christmas story. The release of the book is perfect timing! November, can't go wrong. This book seems so interesting. I love books that focus on areas of history that are more quiet. The waiting period. It is an interesting time.

I can't wait to see what this book has to bring. 

Waiting On:
Title: The End of the Magi
Author: Patrick W. Carr
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: November 5th, 2019

About the Book:
Centuries before the magi arrived in Bethlehem,a prophecy sets a young magus on his path . . .

Following his vision of the coming Messiah, the prophet Daniel calls forth a select group of men who will count down the calendar until the arrival of Israel's promised king. Centuries later, as the day draws near, Myrad, a young magi acolyte, flees for his life when his adoptive father and others are slain by a ruthless Parthian queen.

Equipped with very little, in haste Myrad escapes the city and, searching for a way to hide from the soldiers scouring the trade routes, tries to join the caravan of the merchant Walagash. The merchant senses that Myrad is keeping secrets, but when the young man proves himself a valuable asset, an epic journey filled with peril, near captures, and dangerous battles begins.

With every day that passes, the calendar creeps closer to the coming Messiah. And over everything shines the dream of a star that Myrad can't forget, and the promise that the world will never be the same.

What are you waiting on this week?
Any Christmas stories catch your eye yet? Are you even thinking toward the that time of year?
