Preorder A Torch in the Empire Series Book Three: Whether We Live or Die


Hi friends! I have some exciting news for you! A Torch in the Empire Series Book Three: Whether We Live or Die is now available for preorder! 

Here’s the back cover blurb:

It’s A. D. 67. A year has passed since brother and sister Jesse and Abigail were sold as slaves in Rome. Both long to be reunited and return home to Jerusalem. 

Abigail, still working in the patrician Aurelius’ house, tries to honor Christ even though she knows it’s only a matter of time until her master finds out she is a Christian and she faces the consequence--death in the arena. 

Haunted by guilt for the lives he took as a gladiator and for how he failed to keep his promise to his dead father that he would care for his sister, Jesse is determined to rescue Abigail. He manages to escape the gladiator school, bringing his newfound friend Lucas with him, but a multitude of obstacles still stand in the way of him saving his sister. And even if he succeeds in rescuing her, the Jewish Revolt rages in Judea, and Jesse fears they’ll be unable to return to their beloved home. 

As for Lucas Aurelius, his newfound Christian faith has given him hope through the trials he’s endured so far, but his difficulties are far from over. 

The third book in A Torch in the Empire Series, Whether We Live or Die, is a story of hope in the midst of suffering, courage in the face of death, and sacrificial love during a time of great darkness. Weaving fictional characters together with real historical persons and events, this series takes you back to the turbulent first-century Roman Empire when the early church faced the worst of persecutions under Emperor Nero. 

Lord willing, the book will be released the end of February. If you preorder, you’ll get this bookmark featuring art by my friend Grace Obenhaus and a set of four stickers made by yours truly. And even though you won’t get the book for a few months, I’ll mail you the bookmark and stickers right away! (So if you want to buy it as a Christmas gift for someone, you will have a little something to give them now and they’ll have the book to look forward to!) 


This book has been in the works for a while, and I am so thrilled to now be making it available for you to order! I’m very thankful to all my family and friends who have helped me make this dream a reality, and most of all to my Savior Jesus. 

As always, feel free to reply, and remember “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it,” (1 Thess. 5:24). Merry Christmas!

All for Him,

Savannah Jane
