Book 1 in Stone Braide Chronicles
The Time of Sorrows is long past.
The future of Selah and her people is shrouded in mystery.
And the clock is ticking.
Hidden in the tall grasses along a shore littered with the rusted metal remnants of a once-great city, a hunter crouches. It is the eve of her eighteenth Birth Remembrance and high time she proves to herself and her brothers that she can stand on her own two feet. Selah Rishon Chavez waits not for game but for one of the small boats that occasionally crash against the desolate shoreline. Because inside one of these boats she will find her quarry--a Lander.
These people from an unknown land across the ocean are highly prized by the Company and bring a good price--especially if they keep the markings they arrive with.
Everything falls to pieces when the Lander whom Selah catches is stolen by her brothers, and Selah wakes the next morning to find the Lander's distinctive mark has appeared on her own flesh. Once the hunter, Selah is now one of the hunted, and she knows only one person who can help her--Bodhi Locke, the Lander her brothers hope to sell in the Mountain.
With evocative descriptions of a strange new world that combines elements of disturbing scientific advances, devious political conspiracy, and survival in a hostile wilderness, Bonnie S. Calhoun weaves a captivating tale of a society more like our own than we may want to admit. From the tension-laced first scene to the captivating last page, Thunder is an epic journey into the heart of humankind that explores how far we are willing to go when we're pushed to the limit.
Fans of Dystopian fiction will love Bonnie Calhoun's first book in her brand new series The Stone Braide Chronicles. I personally find this genre fascinating and love seeing how each author tackles the subject. As many us know this is a growing genre that has grabbed a hold of readers and hasn't let go and its nice to see some Christian authors breaking into the genre and putting their own spin on it. No matter what happens on earth God is still in control and Jesus saves.
I really enjoyed this book. I found the plot to be well developed full of believable characters. Bonnie Calhoun mixed action, adventure, romance, suspense and so much more into this book. I will say as the book came to a conclusion it left me wanting for more and I am so ready to read the next in the series.
