Prophet (CFBA Blog Tour) - With Update

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Bethany House Publishers (April 1, 2012)
R.J. Larson


 R. J. Larson is the author of numerous devotionals featured in publications such as Women's Devotional Bible and Seasons of a Woman's Heart. She lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with her husband and their two sons. Prophet marks her debut in the fantasy genre.


Close your eyes, Ela of Parne. Close your eyes and you will see.

Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She's undignified, bad tempered, and only seventeen--not to mention that no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as the elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young.

Istgard has turned their back on me. See the evil they do.

Yet after experiencing His presence, she can't imagine living without Him. Determined to follow the Infinite's voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite's word to a nation torn apart by war. Here she meets Kien, a young Traceland ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela must surrender to her destiny . . . and determine how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite.

Will you accept the branch and speak my will? Will you be my prophet?

Another week has come and gone... And here I am again without a review! I have started to read this book, and I am certainly intrigued. It's fantasy with a twist of biblical "flavor." I'm curious to see what happens to the hero and heroine after they meet!

I owe ya'll (and different publishers/authors) some reviews, and I do hope to start delivering on those in May, after graduation. (Have I mentioned I'm graduating?? Sorry for being so repetitive - it's just hard to believe that the day is almost here, and hard to believe I have such a short amount of time to get everything done!) There might be a few posts here and there before graduation, but for the most part, I hope to be back more often in May with some fun posts (I'm thinking graduation, Sherlock Season 2 (!!!), book reviews, and maybe the 3rd Annual Camp Humility if I can squeeze it in...).

May God bless you all, and thank you so much for your patience! 

 *With thanks to Bethany House Publishers through CFBA for providing me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion - coming soon!*
