Book Review – Day of War by Cliff Graham

Day of War (Lion of War)Day of War by Cliff Graham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Day of War started with a bang. The story opens with Benaiah, one of David’s soldiers, getting into a fight with a lion. These opening chapters were especially thrilling. We get a gritty and immersive look into ancient Israel.

The pace seems to drag just slightly during the first half of the second act, as the author introduces a larger cast of characters, but then from the the midpoint onward things heat up toward an exciting conclusion.

Cliff Graham did a great job of transporting us into the past and showing us what life was like in David’s rag-tag band of warriors. This feels like a good origin story about a man who we know is on his way to a great destiny.

In amongst all of the action and excitement, there is a meaningful character arc and growth.

I’m looking forward to reading more in this series.
