The war in the north is over, but the war for all the Lands has just begun. As the Shadonae solidify their hold on the city of Thyra, Rowen Mar, the last Eldaran and savior of the White City, awakens to find herself hunted by those she has saved.
Meanwhile, the assassin Caleb Tala finds himself in the presence of the Word. The time of reckoning has come, and he must pay the price for all the lives he has taken. But in his moment of judgment, Caleb is given a second chance to change his life.
These two hold the power to save the Lands from the Shadonae. One must escape slavery, and one must choose to forsake everything before the world is consumed in darkness.
Book two of the Follower of the Word series.

Reviews for Son of Truth:
“Son of Truth was a phenomenal read that continued the great work Busse did with Daughter before it. The history and abilities of the Eldarans were delved into a little more, and the action scenes, and spiritual and physical conflicts, were presented very true to life. It was a little light, as I said, on the exact villains until almost four-fifths of the way through, but once they come into the tale again, it is something to behold.
This was a compelling and edifying read, and I can’t wait for the conclusion to come out. Highly Recommended.” —Speculative Faith
“This series has an epic scope and includes symbolism that, while clearly based in a Christian theology, refrains from being delivered in a heavy-handed way. With an epic-fantasy sort of scope, Busse’s writing voice allows the tale to remain reader-friendly even to those who might not normally reach for fantasy fiction. Consider me, officially, a fan-girl.” —Serena Chase, USAToday Happy Ever After
“In this fast moving sequel to Daughter of Light, Morgan Busse builds and expands her universe even further and she does it with class and style…
As a center book in what I’m imagining to be a trilogy, there’s a lot of set up for what will surely come to pass in the last book. This means there isn’t a whole lot of big plot moves or twisting, but there’s still enough to keep you mostly satisfied. Note the ‘mostly’ in that last sentence. The final page of this one will keep you hanging off the edge of our seat. Some screaming may occur.” —RadiantLit
“Christians will appreciate the Christian symbolism lightly woven within the story, while others will enjoy it as a good epic fantasy series. The narration is descriptive, the romance light, and the faith elements evident but not overwhelming. The excellence of Busse’s plot, character development, and world-building is evident in the books’ nominations for several awards.” —Christian Library Journal
