Story Flows in Chris Fabry's Almost Heaven

Chris Fabry is a talented writer with a lilting flow to his words. Billy's speech pattern sounds authentically "country." Readers will enjoy Billy's train of thought, his perspective on life, as much as they will sympathize with the immense hardship he must endure.

Profound Conclusions Reached on a Different Kind of Snow Day

Never mind that Peter packs more into his snow day than seems possible. Never mind that he comes to an astonishing number of profound conclusions. The simple, personal way in which Billy Coffey conveys Peter's thoughts will capture your attention and make you think about what truths you might need to ponder.

Questions of Love Guide The Charlatan's Boy

What does it mean to be "Loved"? Is it the sense of affirmation we receive from another person, or is it something more? Questions like these help guide readers through The Charlatan's Boy, a young adult novel by author Jonathan Rogers.

Catching Moondrops Brings Tears, Laughter and Reflection

Catching Moondrops will bring you to tears, move you to laughter, and cause you to reflect on your own heart. The only thing that could make this book better is to read the first two books in Jennifer Erin Valent's series beforehand.

Good and Evil Come Together in Immanuel's Veins

Ted Dekker, known for best-selling thrillers and fantasies, excels in creatively communicating his perspective on truth, love, and beauty. He acknowledges the potential controversy Immanuel's Veins may stir, saying, "This is a story for everyone, but not everyone is for this story."

Can Vampires be Saved? Tandem Seems to Think So.

At first blush, Tandem is a contradiction in terms: "a vampire tale with an inspirational message"? After reading it, I'm still at a bit of a loss to describe it. It's not what I'd call a story of redemption and seems a bit tame for a tale about the blood-sucking undead.

Those looking for a fast, entertaining suspense novel will enjoy Wanda Dyson’s latest, Judgment Day. But readers seeking more comprehensively written characters and stronger writing overall should look elsewhere.

The Six-Liter Club is a Story Out of Time

The Six-Liter Club is the fictional story of Camille Weller, the first African-American and female surgeon hired in the Emergency Room of the Medical College of Virginia. In the 1980s, this would have been a big deal. Now, not so much. Unfortunately, there's nothing in the story that gives us a sense of the eighties, which gave the whole story a feeling of déjà vu.

Intriguing Havah Explores Life in Eden

Author Tosca Lee has taken the first four chapters of the Bible and filled in details I never even thought to wonder about. Did Adam and Eve tell their children about their life in the Garden? If so, did they include the part about forbidden fruit or conveniently leave that out? What was it like to be the first humans?

The Bishop Continues James' Bowers Files Series

Billerbeck Takes on Teens in Perfectly Dateless

Perfectly Dateless delivers the laughs that readers have come to expect from Kristin Billerbeck. She combines a witty phrase with hilarious situations and an uncanny teenaged voice. She also seems to have a solid handle on the culture in which today's teens live, particularly Christian teens.

Action and Suspense Come Together in Broken's Dark Tale

In Broken, Travis Thrasher spins a dark tale using the present tense. This unusual, and difficult, technique was a smart move—the pace quickens, the action intensifies, the emotions are immediate. Everything happens now. The suspense grows, indeed it starts to reverberate, as the reader moves through the short chapters.
