Great Review. However, trilogy. Hmm, I have seen people on Tumblr and Goodreads posting status updates about how they don't think people should be allowed to write negative reviews for diverse books because the bloox of the author supersede the quality of the writing itself. Makes waiting for X-Mas hard.
Thanks For Rating
Of Blood and Bone by Nora Roberts is the 2nd book in the Chronicles of the One series set in a post-apocalyptic world and the one person who might be able to save everyone. Middles are tough. Coming of age stories of destined youths, like the main character of Of Blood and Bone , can also be difficult to write. Those family bonds are what give the story resonance. As seen in the first book, some people were transformed by the Doom into nightmares come to life and became corrupted by their new powers. There are also the humans who, on a usually religious principal, hate anyone with magical capabilities and seek to wipe them out, no matter what it takes.

Plugged In exists to shine a light on the world of popular entertainment while giving you and your family the essential tools you need to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which we live. Through reviews, articles and discussions, we want to spark intellectual thought, spiritual growth and a desire to follow the command of Colossians "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. Just today I was reading Psalm 37 and thinking about how your ministry provides ways to 'dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Plugged In has become a significant compass for our family. All three of our kids are dedicated to their walk with Christ but they still encounter challenges. Thanks for all of your research and persistence in helping us navigate through stormy waters. It is her favorite movie and she wanted to show it in class.
