Award-winning author Jill Williamson returns with Outcasts, the second book in The Safe Lands series, picking up where Captives left off. The three teen brothers make decisions how they will live in a land that is not their own, one where pleasure is valued more than human life, a land that makes it difficult to stay true to their faith in the face of so many temptations.


Williamson, a gifted storyteller, does a remarkable job in creating a believable futuristic world where believers are endangered and life without God is empty. A rich narrative, both plot and character-driven, Outcasts manages to avoid the second-book pitfalls; it is more than a bridge between book 1 and book 3. Captives lays the groundwork for Outcasts, but Outcasts is the better book, and Jill Williamson is to be congratulated on creating a page-turner and making the reader eager for the final installment.
