So I discovered Jennifer Hartz through Twitter. And what a find! This series spoke to my fantasy heart. If I had to tell you what it was like, I would say its a combination of a fairytale, time-travel (world-travel?), and Lord of the Rings (great combination!). I was one of those people who saw Lord of the Rings and said what’s the big deal? no romance. Well this book has added plenty of the romance factor. The story begins in the land of Meric and a great king has just been killed by an evil queen. The king’s daughter needs to be hidden or she’s next. Where do they hide her? In the USof A. I loved the idea. That way when Christina finally makes her way back to Meric, you can see the oddness of the land through her eyes. And Shaw, what a hero. I really like that Shaw is not just some He-man, he’s a fleshed out character with weaknesses and strengths that only make him more endearing. Interwoven throughout these novels is the Creator who Christina initially denies, but slowly comes to realize is there. I think (the series isn’t over) that as the books keep going she will come to know him personally.
So I remember going on Amazon, seeing three books out and thinking if I love this series at least all the books are already out. Wrong! Two more are coming out and boy does Ms. Hartz leave you with some cliffhangers. So if you read the first one, you’ll be wanting to get the next one (impatiently waiting for book 4!)
And on that note: Ms. Hartz has graciously offered to giveaway 3 copies (kindle or pdf) of the first book: Future Savior Book One: Conception. To be entered in this contest, you must leave a comment (with your email address) on one of the previous fantasy posts or on an upcoming post. The contest ends June 8th and the winner will be announced and contacted within 48 hours.
