This book is AWESOME. Echo in the Darkness is the second book in the Mark of the Lion Series by Francine Rivers. One more to go in the series but, I think I'm going to let this one "soak in" before I start the third one. I may even read a lighter book in between. I love the characters, I love the story, I love the issues addressed and how they are handled, and I love Mindy for talking me into reading them!
