review 1: THE FORGOTTEN WARRIORbyKathi Oram Petersonthe Title of LibertyIn memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace,our wives, and our children.Nearly 10 years after Captain Moroni raised the Title of Liberty the Lamanites and Nephites were once again at war. The people of Ammon desired to help the Nephites. But they had made a vow to never to take up arms again. Their sons had not made this vow. These young men entered into a covenant to fight for the liberty of the Nephites.They were men who were true at all times in whatsoever thing they were entrusted. They were men of truth and soberness, for they had been taught to keep the commandments of God and to walk uprightly before him.These 2,000 stripling soldiers had been taught by their mothers that God was with t... morehem, that He would not let them fall. Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.Being led by Helaman, they were in many battles, but none died. The Lord rewarded and preserved them; for believing in Him, for having faith, for obeying His commandments, and for striving to serve others.(Alma 53 - 57)Sydney Morgan read the story of the 2000 Stripling Warriors to her sister Gracie every night before Gracie went to bed. It was Gracie's favorite story in the Book of Mormon. Never in her wildest dreams did Sydney ever think she would be transport though time to meet Captain Helaman or the Stripling Warriors...Tarik, Abraham, Baram, Captain Gid, Amos. Never did she think that her talents as a black belt in karate be useful in teaching the Stripling Warriors how to fight better in battle against the Lamanites. She missed her own mother who had just been diagnosed with cancer and was in the hospital, but met and loved several of the Stripling Warriors mothers. She missed her sister Gracie who was mentally challenged and depended on her, but met Lib the 8 year old brother of Tarick one of the Stripling Warriors and she met Ozi a loveable character who would do anything for her. Not to mention Ximon the mysterious Great Dane. I recommend this book to anyone who loves the Book of Mormon, the Stripling Warriors, time travel, a little fantasy. It is for any age that can read from 8-80.
review 2: Life has been a little crazy lately. Two full-time jobs, working on a major project, rehearsal for my "Mama Mia" debut, reading the finalists for the Whitney Awards, preparing for the class I'm teaching and the panel I'll be on for the 6th Annual LDS Storymakers Writers Conference - The Success Within You, life ... all of it. In the midst of all that I forgot that I'd promised to review The Forgotten Warrior by Kathi Oram Peterson, published by Covenant Communications. Color me exceedingly sheepish.So when I got home last night, I curled up on the couch, opened Kathi's book and began to read. Wow! The woman can write. Immediately I was caught in the astonishing adventures of Sydney Morgan, a teenager forced to face some very serious trials, not the least of which is being transported back in time, away from her hospitalized and very sick mother, to the time of the Stripling Warriors and Captain Helaman.Sydney Morgan is no wimp. A black bet in karate, her defensive moves help keep her tough even when her mom is diagnosed with cancer and her long-last dad shows up to play nice guy. But when an unexpect gift transports her through space and time to the land of Zarahemla, Syd just might be in over her head. Accused of being a spy, she has to prove she's not a threat to the locals -- including Captain Helaman himself! As war quickly approaches, Helaman calls upon Syd to help his stripling warriors prepare to fight. Torn between concern for her family and for her new friends, Syd musters her wits, strength and faith to face the coming battle -- but her feelings for chief warrior Tarik put her heart on the line. Who will survive the Lamanites' fierce onslaught? And will Syd ever make it home again?Now, I'm not going to tell everything that went down in the story, you have to buy the book for that. But I can assure you of this, you won't put it down. I'm tired, really tired and overworked and I couldn't put it down. I'm writing this review at 10:45 on the 17th of March, although you're not reading this until the 18th. You want this book, it's a great addition to your home library.Let me say this, Kathi Oram Peterson does a fantastic job of bringing the story of the Stripling Warriors to life. The trials Syd faces in Book of Mormon times help her to come to a better understanding of what is going on with her mother. In the meantime, she has to fight, hand and foot (pun intended), to survive Book of Mormon times.So here's the question. Do you know the story of the Stripling Warriors? Do you remember how not one was lost? But what happens if someone shows up from the future and changes the mix? What would happen then?You have to read Forgotten Warrior by Kathi Oram Peterson to find out. I give this book a serious double thumbs up! less
