The story flows well and lends itself to your imagination as you learn about the world of Faerie with Trish. While the character and story development was in point for the most part, the characters of Clay and Dan felt... Thin. He seemed as if he was there to be the one that held the readers views but you did not grow a real attachment to him till near the end.
The Changling's Daughter is a delightful re-telling of a classic quest tale. The spin is that Bryn is unhappy with the lot in life that Goblins, which she just found out she was apart of this race, are in fact the bad guys.
Go into any Christian Book store, any book rack at a pharmacy, or any book section at a local grocery store; and you’ll find tons of different devotionals geared towards different groups of individuals. You’ll find devotionals for outdoorsmen, teens, mothers, hazel-eyed / club-footed / caffeine-addicted / dudes in their mid 30’s… wait, I still haven’t seen that one yet… The point is there are devotionals for almost all groups, but what’s rare is finding one designed for superhero/comic book geeks. Scott Bayles has joined the ranks of those attempting to fill the gap with his new 40 Day devotional, “The Holy Heroes Devotional.”
The latest devotional from Nathan Marchand and Eric Anderson has released, and it is full of geekiness and godliness. The chapters in the form of daily devotions are numbered from 1-42, and they cover everything from Justice league, Cain and Abel, to the passing of Stan Lee. We here at Geek devotions love to see the things in Geek culture that will point you back to God and Eric and Nathan do an excellent job of doing just that.
Recently Zondervan released the NIV, Starting Place Study Bible. As the name suggests, it’s supposed to be a study Bible to a young (in faith) believer who’s just now starting to really dig into and understand the Word of God. The question should be asked, though, is this a good start for someone?
This premise of this book had me intrigued from the beginning, the concept that God loves food, and is trying to tell us things through his creation? Well yes, sign me up. I had heard of Mrs. Feinburg before as well, so this was a fairly easy decision for me personally because food, cooking food, and eating food are past times I enjoy.
Melanie Dickerson brings us another great reimagining of the classic tale. This time it's the story of Mulan. Mulan knows that she should marry, cook, and have children rather than wage war. Can she surpass these insurmountable odds, stay alive, save her mother, and keep the secret from the handsome son of a duke?
