Remnants: Season of Wonder

RELEASE DATE: APRIL 8, 2014

I was so excited to be chosen as a member of Lisa Tawn Bergren’s street team to help promote the release of her new series, Remnants.

I wasn’t sure how distopian ideas would work within a framework of a Christian worldview, but I think she nailed it! In this first novel in the series, Remnants: Season of Wonder, the plot and characters are set up and you get a glimpse of the dangers and challenges ahead. I could totally identify with Andriana, the protagonist and narrator of the story.  She is gifted with great empathy, and courage and yet faces fear and apprehension in a very realistic way.  I love this quote from her mother, just as she and her knight, Ronan were ready to head out on their journey to find the other Ailith:

If you love books that hit the ground running, this first book in the new Remnants series by Lisa Tawn Bergren does not disappoint! There is action right from the start as you journey through this distopian world with Andriana & Ronan seeking to find the other Ailith, defeating those in their pursuit, and ultimately going where the Maker leads. There are wise nuggets and great quotes scattered throughout this exciting adventure. If you enjoy distopian fiction or great adventure stories, you will truly enjoy Remnants: Season of Wonder. Can’t wait to see what’s next for the Ailith and their brave knights! Looking forward to the next book.

You can get a sneak peak of the first 27 pages on Scribd or go ahead and pre-order your copy at amazon.com. The author, Lisa Tawn Bergren, will also be participating in a daily Launch Tour during the month of April at participating blogs. (Exciting Q & A’s with the author and a special giveaway at the end.)

I would love to hear what you think about Remnants: Season of Wonder, so come on back and leave a comment!

Giveaway: Science in the Beginning

A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to review this new elementary science curriculum by Dr. Jay Wile, published by Berean Builders.  While I really enjoyed the text and format of this introductory science course, my children are now in High School so I have no need for it. :-(

If you’re looking for a great resource to get your elementary students started in science, this is a wonderful introduction to many different areas. The book visits the seven days of creation, as your child spirals through everything from the properties of light and water to animals and people.

You can read my full review right here on Mindful Ramblings.

This is sure to be a popular giveaway, so enter as many times as you are able.
