Note from the Author
Welcome! I’m so excited to bring you my new series “The Kingdom to Come”. This first book “A Great Light” will introduce you to Prince Karhiad, a humble prince next in line to the throne, and his band of close loyal friends who live in the low social status of his kingdom. The crown prince respects his royal family, loves his parents and brother dearly, yet doesn’t align with their views of ruling the kingdom. He appreciates the authenticity that is found in his friends and the lifestyles of the lower and middle class.
There is an evil entity that wanders the world and has an army of supernatural creatures that wreaks destruction amongst the kingdoms. The threat of this sinister beast isn’t the only dilemma in the Kingdom of Merrhius that Karhiad’s father must battle; it is also the rebellion of his son. If King Vilsig cannot get Karhiad committed to the ways of reigning over their kingdom, then he believes his legacy will diminish.
Love is found in the most unforeseen place for this honorable prince. He will risk his inheritance to pursue this love fervently. In a battle of good vs. evil, the power of love isn’t just a shield to ward off the darkness — it’s also the strongest weapon of all.

Love and war are often the same thing.
Prince Karhiad is a humble king-in-waiting. His father, King Vilsig, rules the Kingdom of Merrhius with an iron fist. While the king dreams of endless conquests, his son only wants to conquer the hearts of his subjects through love instead of fear.
Meanwhile, a dark and sinister force threatens every kingdom around. And if King Vilsig and Prince Karhiad can't put aside their differences, an ancient sinister beast and his supernatural army will lay waste to the Kingdom of Merrhius.
On the night of Prince Karhiad’s 17th birthday, he is mesmerized by a radiant light and makes a decision to learn of its origin. That choice will force him towards answers he wasn't seeking, a woman he wasn't planning to fall in love with, and a destiny that will bring him great suffering yet an even greater reward. But in this gripping tale of good vs. evil, the power of love isn't just a shield to ward off the darkness -- it's also the strongest weapon of all.
A Great Light - Jennifer Ball
This book is full of fascinating adventure. I like the way Jennifer separates the lands with distinctive differences. They are close in proximity but so far apart in their beliefs and the way they live. I really like the mystery of Trinicity. Karhiad and Faith have an amazing relationship and the friendships Karhiad has with his friends are great.
The characters are well-developed and it is easy to feel their emotions.
The story flows well from chapter to chapter and is easy to follow along and the title fits the story well.
This is an awesome story and I highly recommend it to other readers.
I give this book a literary rating of 5/5

About the Author
I am a friend of Jesus who at times fails at making this is my most important relationship. I am a wife who forgets at times this is my primary job. I am a mom who at times didn't get it right. I take lots of pictures that annoy everyone in my family except for my dog. She loves it.
I began writing short stories when I was a child. I would sit in my room for hours writing as fast as I could to keep up with my thoughts. We didn't have a typewriter and certainly no computer. Too often my writing would turn to scribble. I ended up with lots of loose paper with many short stories written on them in half scribble that made it too difficult for others to read. Thanks to technology, I went back to my childhood passion and wrote a story that I turned into a readable book.
That's me, to make a long story short.
