    1. King Philip s War as it was lived If I continue to live under the English, I will have no nation left to rule Just as the English fight for their king, I will die fighting for my father s kingdom It is 1675 and four years since the events that introduced us to Linto and Israel Brewster and now both their worlds are being challenged and shaken The colonists are plunging into war with the Wampanoag, spurred on by the belief that they are doing the work of God The result is the bloody conflict know [...]

    2. Having previously read My Father s Kingdom I was delighted to get my hands on this second book in the series as soon as it came out It was just as brilliant as the first one, with the already familiar characters but who now face new challenges as the bloody war rages in their land Just like book one, book two is a wonderful historical account of the war that I m sure not too many people know about but which nonetheless left a devastating scar on the early Puritan nation s history I was genuinely [...]

    3. The Prophet and the Witch is the second installment from James W George s My Father s Kingdom series Thank goodness the beginning starts with a summary of what had happened in the first book Since I have not read this one yet, I found the summary quite helpful I was intrigued seeing the author s vision of what living in the 1670s New England was like The vivid descriptions made me feel as though I was right there living among the people The Prophet and the Witch is so so good I found it to be we [...]

    4. James George s The Prophet and the Witch provides a fascinating and insightful look at a period of history of which many modern readers are likely unfamiliar King Philip s War In spite of its name which may suggest European vs European warfare, the war actually took place in New England in the 1670s between the English Colonists and Native American inhabitants of the area George s novel, which is the second in the series, follows three separate but interconnected stories The first follows Linto, [...]

    5. I love American history However, as a Revolutionary War enthusiast, I have rarely explored early American history prior to Lord Dun s War or the unrest in New England that led to Lexington and Concord.Shame on me for being so narrowly focused J.W George has opened my eyes to an entirely new epoch in our history Indeed, he has presented me with a new literary thread that helps me complete my tapestry of the European history in North America The Prophet and the Witch focuses upon King Philip s War [...]

    6. The Prophet and the Witch is a book for everyone I m usually a romance reader but when I took up this book to read, it gripped my attention, mainly because of the keen attention to details the author includes His writing is of impeccable standards The writer is precise in the telling of this war King Philip s War which is not often a topic of discussion Reading the book, woke up my old passion for the historical times as I read about the conflict in the British colonies at the time At first, I t [...]

    7. A surprisingly delightful, heart heavy tale of war and violence George has woven an intricate tapestry of historical fiction The proportions of which approach a classically epic categorization Each of the approximately eight thousand characters has been carefully developed and presented to the readers as a full and faceted human being Even the horse has facets In this the second book of the series we are reunited with Brewster who has found a place for himself in a Quaker community We struggle w [...]

    8. Like many Americans, my historical knowledge about my country is riddled with gaps In particular, my grasp on colonial history is weak It pretty much ends around the first Thanksgiving and then picks up again with the French and Indian War.James W George s The Prophet and the Witch certainly fills in a gap I didn t know I had King s Philip s War, which pitted colonists against Native Americans in New England While the war provides the architecture for the plot, the characters bring it to life Na [...]

    9. The Prophet and the Witch, by James W George, is the second book in the My Father s Kingdom series If you have not been able to read the first book in the series or it has been a while since your reading, George presents a detailed summary of the first book, at the outset of this book This makes it very easy to just start with this text These books are set in Puritan, New England, and are generally written in the style of historical fiction On a continuum of historic fiction where some is much [...]

    10. The Prophet and The Witch is a historical fiction book that recounts King Philips war in an interesting, well written way It is the second book in a series, and I think that a third book would be really well received Much of the book features the lands and swamps native to the Indian s but there are times when the setting shifts to other places Based off of the author s notes and my own conclusions, I think the main idea of the novel was to draw attention to a very interesting period of history [...]

    11. Alyssa The Prophet and the Witch by James W George is a historical fiction narrative centered around King Philip s War, which was fought between the New England colonists and Native Americans in the region While rooted in historical events that take place in the same settings as they once did, the book also contains fictional characters and details The chapters switch off from the different characters perspectives, such as the colonist soldiers who are fighting, outcasted Puritan Israel Brewster [...]

    12. Audiobook Review I found I was sorely lacking in my understanding of this time period during the growth of the colonies of North America I m happy to see someone tried to unravel this difficult time, giving it life through a fictious story, yet following historical events It s true, it is understood the indigenous Indians didn t take kindly to the colonists However, the colonists wouldn t have survived their initial time in North America if it weren t for the Indians.This is a story, true to for [...]

    13. The Prophet and the Witch tells the story of King Phillip s War, which, for most readers, is almost completely unknown Set approximately 50 years after the Pilgrims arrival in New England, it is the story of a war between the descendants of those who celebrated the first Thanksgiving together as friends It is not always easy for works of historical fiction to find the right balance between telling a good story and telling an historically accurate story Typically, we know how the story turns out, [...]

    14. I listened to the audiobook version of this story, and was so glad I did George s writing and Freathy s narration are a spot on match in this riveting sequel I was eager to jump back to the 1600s again and revisit the characters in this story They are fully developed, relatable individuals capable of evolving My favorite character is Brewster, whose moral trials cause him to undergo real change As with its predecessor, the history is rich and well researched Another outstanding contribution by b [...]

    15. As with the first novel in this series, I really enjoyed that this series takes on the subject matter of King Phillip s War This is an event that is very often overlooked, but very important in the history of early America Whereas the first novel focused on the early events that led up to the start of the war, this novel deals with the actual war itself We are witness to battles and strategies on both sides and it was interesting to see how the two different sides perceived this war This book pi [...]
