10/11/14 - book review for Revell books - Thunder by Bonnie S. Calhoun

Thunder is book one of the Stone Braide Chronicles by Bonnie S. Calhoun.  This is a young adult dystopian novel.  Even though it was written towards young adults, it is well worth an adult eye.

Selah is a young woman coming of age, nearing her eighteenth birth remembrance.  She waits and watches as a Lander boat is coming ashore at her beach.  This handsome Lander, Bodhi will change the way she looks and feels about things during their journey to find Selah’s father.  Selah’s brothers try to get to her before she reaches her destination but Selah recaptures her prisoner, the Lander Bodhi.  Evil forces run amuck in the Mountain where Lander’s bring a high price.  Selah comes upon a dirty girl that has been living by herself since her mother dies, Selah can’t leave her behind.  Selah feels things for Bodhi and he teaches her to communicate other than speaking.  This helps along the way and when they reach their destination.

This futuristic novel of 150 years after the Sorrows, or nuclear war, will take you to places that may seem familiar; or may seem prophetic to today’s time.  Bonnie Calhoun’s characters are well introduced and the plot is in-depth.  This book is worth the read, for any age.

I received this book from Revell books.
