Book Review ~ Foundlings

I had the adventurous opportunity to review and read the first book of the Peleg series, Foundlings.  At first, I was a bit hesitant because I am not a giant and dragon type of girl.  However, I found myself anxious each night to indulge in the lives of these notorious characters. Such an uplifting reading experience involving courage and faith.

This God-honoring historical fiction carries you back in ancient history when dragons and giants co-existed, known as the period of Peleg, soon after the tower of Babel dispersed.. When good verse evil were constantly at odds.   The gifted, creative author, Matthew Christian Harding, weaves biblical principles throughout his novel.  Faith, loyalty, duty, love and righteousness are just a few of the many character traits that these noble character initiate throughout this novel.  

The Chronicles of Peleg, Book One, Foundlings is published by Zoe and Sozo Publishing.  All 256 pages will keep you on pins and needles.   A suspenseful page turner for the low price of $11.95.  This piece of creative literature is suitable for ages 10 and up.  Probably most benefiting ages 12 and older.  A read a loud at it's best.  You can purchase Foundlings here.  Also, Mr. Harding has the second book of the Peleg series, Paladins,  available for purchase, also, published by Zoe and Sozo Publishing.

Magic, humanism, and evolution are non-existent in Foundlings. However, I can't wait to finish our current read aloud to only begin this adventurous read.  

During my read, I highlighted numerous challenging vocabulary words that will make wonderful word studies, too.  Lots of food for thought will be discussed during our adventure in the world of Peleg.  Can't wait to get my hands on Book Two, Paladins.

I received a free copy of Foundlings for the purpose of writing an honest review. No other compensation was given.
