The Chronicles of Narnia Pop-up
The Chronicles of Narnia Pop-up: Based on the Books by C. S. Lewis - Robert Sabuda,C.S. Lewis,Matthew S. Armstrong,Matthew Armstrong

I had no idea what this book was when I picked it up as it was wrapped-up in plastic when I bought it.  I had found it at one of our thrift stores and for .88 cents, I thought I would take a chance and just buy it.  I thought my granddaughter or my daughter-in-law might like it (she's an high school language arts teacher).

 

This book was like new inside and the pop-outs are fantastic!  They truly pop-out and they are really detailed and big.  I don't know which one I like the best out of the seven that are in the book.  I have never read the Chronicles of Narnia so I have nothing to go on for these illustrations but I did enjoy the little stories that accompanied these pop-outs.  This is a seven double-page book where there is a pop-out in the middle of each of these pages.  There were even four smaller pop-outs on a few of these pages and some of them are in a foldout.

Sasperia and conflict keep the excitement going!
When War Returns — The Beta Earth Chronicles: Book Three - Wesley Britton

In this, the third of the Chronicles, Malcolm has more adventures than he ever wanted.  The book gets a whole ton of excitement and kept me guessing, usually incorrectly, what was going to happen next.  Sasperia, who is an important addition to the Renbourn tribe, is a great addition to the book, and if not my favorite character, well, she is probably one with the most surprises!  The Chronicles continue to evolve with great writing, some fun humor, and new and exciting science fiction concepts.  It continues to address social, economic and political issues but with a whole different slant.

A Great Science Fiction Adventure Continues!
The Blood of Balnakin - The Beta Earth Chronicles: Book Two - Wesley Britton

The Beta-Earth Chronicles takes some exciting twists and turns in this, the second book. Our Blind Alien continues to acquire wives, have adventures, and have children, but for the first time there are a few cracks in the Renbourn family solidarity. But this book is about so much more! Science Fiction religion - with All Domes conflicts, parallels some of the issues of our Earth's religious conflicts, and there are political upheavals as well. And some terrific new personalities join the tribe, with very unexpected surprises in the ever changing plot. By now, if you read The Blind Alien first (and I strongly suggest you do, because this book is a continuation of the Chronicles) you will have gotten used to the unusual way of speech, and perhaps, like me, even have fun thinking in that dialect!

REVIEW BY MERISSA - The Du Lac Prophecy (The Du Lac Chronicles #4) by Mary Anne Yarde
The Du Lac Prophecy (The Du Lac Chronicles #4) - Mary Anne Yarde

The Du Lac Prophecy is the fourth book in The Du Lac Chronicles, and we return to Merton, now known as Galahad, and Amandine - following her daring rescue from under the nose of Mordred and the Archbishop of Rome.

The first few pages of this book are brutal and heartbreaking. There is so much sorrow and horror, I was immediately emotional and completely immersed within the story, and the characters' lives. The thing is, the thing that makes Mary Anne Yarde an outstanding storyteller is the fact that some of the emotion comes from a pair of horses!

This IS book four, and it would certainly help if you have read the previous books, just so you get the full appreciation of the other characters strengths and foibles. This is also quite involved, so it would help to have the background on what is going on.

I am happy to report Tegan once again plays a part in this story, with her becoming a more important character than previously recognised. I can't wait to see where this particular thread is going, and how it will be woven within the main story tapestry.

Arthur and his knights have held a fascination for me from a very young age, and I have always wanted to write their story. Alas and Alack! I am unable to do that, but instead I have the greatest pleasure to lose myself in their story as told by this amazing author.

As a final, technical note, I am happy to say there were no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow. The pacing is smooth, and the story, even with so many different threads, still manages to keep the reader involved, and not confused. I would definitely recommend reading this series in order. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. Absolutely and utterly recommended.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
