The story of Alma the Younger, was brought to life for me in ways I have never imagined before. The enormity of his evil doing and rebelliousness shook me. I also felt the same way when the Angel of the Lord struck him dumb. This has always been one of my favorite stories in the Book of Mormon. I also loved getting to know the other characters better such as Ammon and Aaron. I still am amazed at the strength of Alma the Elder and King Mosiah. I applaud Heather, for once again, presenting a Book of Mormon story that is scripturally sound and retains the true spirit found in the original story.
I highly recommend this 4 1/2 star book to all LDS readers, and those of other faiths who enjoy a great story of love and redemption. I also recommend that you read Abinadi and Alma by the same author. They come first chronologically, and will help many things make more sense in your reading of Alma the Younger.
