Book Summary:
An insane king. His fleeing daughter. Estranged brothers, with a scarred past, risking everything to save her from a fate worse than death. Toss in a holy priest and a lovable wolfhound, and get ready for a wild race across Ireland. Will Dymphna escape her deranged father and his sinful desires? For the first time ever, the story of Saint Dymphna is brought to life in this dramatic novel for adults and older teens. With raw adventure, gripping action, and even humor in the midst of dark mental turmoil, Susan Peek's newest novel will introduce you to a saint you will love forever! Teenage girls will see that Dymphna was just like them, a real girl, while young men will thrill at the heart-stopping danger and meet heroes they can easily relate to. If ever a Heavenly friend was needed in these times of widespread depression and emotional instability, this forgotten Irish saint is it!

5 Stars An Adventurous Story
on June 6, 2017
This is a book with no boring parts! I really liked the fictitious characters Susan Peek created to help tell Saint Dymphna's story (and, I admit, the dog even added zing to the book). I love titles that have meanings you don't understand until you get into the story, and this title is perfect! I can't wait for more stories of little-known saints by Mrs. Peek!

5 Stars Like Susie's other books
on May 11, 2017
Like Susie's other books, I couldn't put it down once I started reading The King's Prey. I knew very little about St. Dymphna and was happy to learn about her in this book. For sure this book is for older teens and young adults. I have purchased some to give as graduation and birthday gifts, as I like to help spread the stories of the "Lives of Little Known Saints". So, if you're on the fence about purchasing it, don't hesitate to get it. You will not be disappointed!
