Welcome to my blog spot- grab a cup of coffee and a good book ;-)
Five Stars for A Secret Place of Thunder- Truly biblical
Oh, this book gave me such feels….
Grace Givings is our heroine in this YA Christian fantasy novel that hits home with my Christian upbringing of the end of days, but also is so light-hearted too, it’s a nice seamless balance between a Harry Potter and Legion kinda feel.
I could personally relate to shy yet sassy Grace; she’s your All-American sweetheart that has a major crush on Eli Cole, the high school quarterback, who seems to be just at the edge of her grasp, but not quite within reach. She’s clumsy, awkward and shares a mutual hate with the school bully (warning- evil witch alert) Abby.
There’s more to the little town of Alvin than meets the eye let me tell ya! And more to all these characters than what lies on the surface!
Grace’s journey has only begun when she learns the secret of her true origins and why she’s been having these strange, historically accurate, and very real dreams. She must face true darkness as she embraces her own unique powers and comes into her own as an …actually I won’t spoil it for you- HA HA- you’ll just have to read it to find out ;-)
The battle for mankind has begun as she must protect the prophet and law giver from the evil that desires to bring about the end of days. There’s laughs, romance, drama and suspense as this story takes you on an action-packed ride of biblical proportions. I loved how Patricia took her readers to high school (or BACK to high school) in my case. I love how she depicted Grace’s inner struggles and her journey into finding herself, the descriptions of the training facility and her hometown. It was beautifully and eloquently written and made me feel for the main character in so many ways. I truly enjoyed this fantasy novel and look forward to following this character in The Realm of Duality.
