About the Book
After generations of waiting, the Messiah has come at last. And not a day too soon. All his life, Malon Ben-Tyrus has been stifled beneath Roman laws and religious traditions, and he longs to be free. The oppression of the Romans worsens every day, and the religious system led by the Scribes and Pharisees has grown corrupt.
Malon believes his life calling is to become a disciple of the Messiah and help free Israel from bondage. When Jesus heads to Jerusalem for the Passover feast, Malon knows this will be a historic event. Jesus will enter the city as the Son of David and take His place as the Messiah of Israel. He longs to follow Jesus to Jerusalem, but his family won’t allow him to go.
When at last his family consents, Malon arrives in Jerusalem only to discover that he is too late. The man he thought to be the Messiah has been crucified,and Barabbas—his greatest enemy—has been set free.
Appalled by the cowardice of Jesus’ disciples, Malon returns home seething with frustration and despair. Everything he believed he was destined to become died with Jesus. Was he wrong about his destiny?

The Master’s Calling is book three in the Days of Messiah Series written by Amber Schamel and this is the first book that I have had the opportunity of reading by her. This book can be read as a stand alone but I definitely recommend reading the books prior to understand the story of Malon-Ben Tyrus and his family. Malon longs to be a disciple of Jesus and when he hears that Jesus is coming to Jerusalem for Passover he wants to go but his family will not let him. When they finally let him go he arrives too late for the Messiah has already been crucified and Barrabas is free. Malon doesn’t understand how the Messiah could have allowed Himself to be crucified and he doesn’t understand how the disciples could be cowards and he returns home full of despair and frustrated.
Amber writes Inspirational fiction, bringing history to life. I really enjoyed reading The Master’s Calling and loved the story of Malon, a story of betrayal and loss but most importantly a story of pure joy. I felt that I could relate to Malon’s story, right now I am going through loss and feeling like I’ve been betrayed. There is something we all can learn from Malon’s story. I give this book 5 out 5 stars and I definitely will be reading the first two books in the series.
Thank you to the Author and Celebrate Lit for providing me a copy of this book for my honest review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
