Bonnie S. Calhoun in her new book, “Thunder book coverThunder” Book One in the Stone Braide Chronicles series published by Revell brings us into the life of Selah Rishon Chavez.

From the back cover:  The Time of Sorrows is long past.
The future of Selah and her people is shrouded in mystery.
And the clock is ticking.

Hidden in the tall grasses along a shore littered with the rusted metal remnants of a once-great city, a hunter crouches. It is the eve of her eighteenth Birth Remembrance and high time she proves to herself and her brothers that she can stand on her own two feet. Selah Rishon Chavez waits not for game but for one of the small boats that occasionally crash against the desolate shoreline. Because inside one of these boats she will find her quarry–a Lander.

These people from an unknown land across the ocean are highly prized by the Company and bring a good price–especially if they keep the markings they arrive with.

Everything falls to pieces when the Lander whom Selah catches is stolen by her brothers, and Selah wakes the next morning to find the Lander’s distinctive mark has appeared on her own flesh. Once the hunter, Selah is now one of the hunted, and she knows only one person who can help her–Bodhi Locke, the Lander her brothers hope to sell in the Mountain.

What exactly is the Stone Braide?  To paraphrase a line from an old movie, “What a future, what a future”. Events happen in the present that have a devastating effect on the future. Now there are the Hunters and the Landers. The Hunters hunt the Landers and sell them for a good price. Somehow Selah turns from a Hunter into a Lander and she now becomes the hunted and it gets more intense from there.  Ms. Calhoun has created an impressive cast of characters that populate the future and all of them are interesting in their own way, good and bad.  “Thunder” delivers suspense, mystery and lots of action.  I liked this book very much.  I look forward to the next book in the series.
