Radier's Vendetta By Karen Arnpriester GIVEAWAY!



A Riveting Christian Thriller
Have your beliefs been challenged so dramatically that it could mean life or death? Charley’s were. She found herself pitted against a vicious man, a man who hated God with an absolute fury. She represented the heartache, abandonment, shame and pain that Raider endured in the name of religion. Charley was the perfect target for his vendetta against God.
Have you been left alone in a nightmare, calling out for help, but no one came? Raider was. The people and circumstances throughout his life taught Raider that if there was a God, He was indifferent and cruel, no better than his own earthly father.
If you experienced the miraculous, would you fall to your knees and trust your Creator or would your human emotions and entitlement for justice determine your responses?  Charley’s pride and anger placed her in peril. Heaven provided protection and provision through miracles, but Heaven could not protect Charley from herself.
If you witnessed the miraculous, would you believe? Raider wouldn't. His anger had destroyed all possibility of hope.
Could you forgive the unforgivable? Would you put your tormentor’s life before your own, even if they intended to take yours?  Charley could.  Her faith allowed her to eventually see her enemy through God’s eyes.
Charley and Raider, opposite ends of the spiritual spectrum, collided and discovered truths that changed them forever. This story examines tough questions that many Christians must ultimately resolve, the questions that keep many of God’s children estranged from Him.
Raider’s Vendetta is a journey that will touch your soul. A story that will inspire you to evaluate your relationship with God and the people in your life. This is a powerful message of forgiveness and salvation. The author, Karen Arnpriester, prays that this book will open hearts and minds to the limitless God who is our Father.

This was a very emotional read for me. A great story on faith and forgiveness.
I disliked the characters and liked the characters, just as I am sure you will to. 
Wait until you get into this book there are so many twists you will never see the ending coming.
Am so happy that Karen did a rewrite on this book and made it more reader friendly for the Christian market.
It just goes to show God still moves in our lives. God nudged Karen to rewrite this story to minister to people about Gods love.
I think now is a good time for all of you book lovers to give Karen's book a try. This is Karen's second book. I can't wait to see what she writes about in her next book.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.

    1. I really enjoyed thinking like a bad guy while writing Raider's character. I wanted him to ignore all the rules and just react to his rage. The interesting part was pulling him back into a place where he could still be loved. We give up on people all the time in our daily lives, but God never does. Good luck with the drawing.

  5. Mary, thank you for presenting Raider's Vendetta on The Mary Reader. The rewrite was definitely a valuable lesson that God shared with me. I am excited to reply to the comments and share this story of love and redemption. This is a wonderful read for Christians who are struggling with their faith and for non-Christians that you would like to reach. It tackles some of the toughest questions regarding God and His love.
