Hey everyone! I'm sharing a review for an impactful book I had the privilege of reviewing, Judgment Call by E.B. Roshan! This one deals with some pretty difficult topics surrounding forgiveness, and it just dives right into the hard stuff -- it doesn't toy with the "I forgave this horrific criminal in a single moment because it's easy" fluff we see so often in fiction. It doesn't make light of what we're called to do as Christians. It shows a very realistic struggle. And...oof, guys. I'm still mulling it over (and those are the kind of books that I adore). Anyway, onward for more info and the review!


Kiva is handsome, generous, and very much in love with recently-widowed Preen Enda. But the thought of becoming his wife fills her with dread—especially when men from her past—men who know too much—begin appearing in her peaceful town. It's only a matter of time before her secrets are revealed.

If Kiva learns the truth about what happened to Preen's first husband, will he still want to become her second?

An easy five star.

If you enjoy clean dystopians with a fresh setting and compelling arguments, this one will be a quick read. I started it intending to read a couple chapters, then ended up finishing it within a couple hours because I couldn't put it down. The characters are easy to  sympathize with, the settings well-written, and the theme and main struggle in the story is VERY compelling and thought-provoking. Without spoilers, it's something that makes you set the book down for a moment and ask yourself what you'd do in their shoes, because it's the type of impossible situation that worms its way into reality so often. I was impressed by the thought and planning that Roshan placed into this main theme, plus how the situation evolved throughout the story -- very, very well done. Finally, the story is fast-paced even when we're not in an actual action scene. 

Have you read any of the Shards of Sevia books yet?
