Thunder, by Bonnie S. Calhoun, is the first book in the Stone Braide Chronicles. This story takes place over 150 years after The Times of Sorrows. The world has almost been wiped out by a nuclear war.
Selah Chavez is one of the survivors. Her day-to-day life is very predictable until the day she comes across a group of people from across the water. These people are the Landers. Since her discovery of them, Selah begins to have questions about her own being.
This is a well-written book with subtle references to God (the Presence). The story keeps going at a good pace and left me looking forward to the next book in the series.
Bonnie Calhoun was able to develop the characters very well and I can't wait to read more books by this talented author.
I was given this book by bookfun.org, the author and Revell, in exchange for my honest review.
