TOS Crew Zoe & Sozo Review
We are always in search of more reading material in our house. We seem to go through books like they are tissue paper and it is hard to find appropriate books for our kids. So, when I saw that I was chosen for this review I was very excited. A new book! And my kids thought it sounded interesting!
I immediately went to their website to find out more and was even more excited to get the book. Zoe & Sozo is a great website full of information about the books and the company. Go here to read how they got started and about the author, Matthew Christian Harding, and here to read about why the books are written they way they are.
I was more than a little curious when I read "No Humanism, No Evolution, No Magic" after having read what the book was about. I couldn't imagine how the book was going to live up to those claims. But it did!
Here is what the website says:
"Foundlings, book one of The Peleg Chronicles
is Historical Fiction that takes place in the
time period of Peleg, soon after the tower of
Babel dispersion. In its pages we meet
dragons, giants, false priests, the death hunt,
an under-city of the Dwarven Brotherhood,
and many memorable characters."
All that and no magic? Yup, he did it!
The Peleg Chronicles: Foundlings is a great book that is full of adventure, wonderful characters, and an exciting story line. I greatly enjoyed reading it and am looking forward to handing it to my younger children to read. I know they will enjoy it as much as I did.
I asked my twelve year old daughter to read this book as well. Here are her thoughts:
"I found it a tiny bit confusing at first because it had flashback like moments. But, later on I couldn't put the book down. It was just that good!" She is begging for us to get the next one.
If you are looking for a great read that is safe for your kids, head on over and order this book. I can't wait to read the next one! Paladin is also available on their website. Both books are available for $11.95. They also have a Chronology Chart From Adam to Joseph available for $7.50 laminated or $5.00 not laminated.
