The Thorn Book Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Daron D. Fraley I got to review his new book called The Thorn! Once I started this book, I couldn't stop reading it! The Thorn is very descriptive, full of adventure and kept me interested. I was also spiritually touched by this book. I am excited to have my teenage boys read it as well. Thanks Daron for the great read!

About the book...

Three tribes are at war on the planet Gan, unaware that the sign of Christ’s birth on an unknown world - Earth - is about to appear in the heavens. During a bloody skirmish with Gideonite troops, Jonathan of Daniel spares Pekah, a young enemy soldier, gaining his trust forever. These two distant brothers from estranged tribes covenant with each other to end the war being waged by a self-proclaimed emperor, and soon discover the intentions of a far more dangerous foe named Rezon – a sinister general bent on ruling those he can bring into subjection and destroying all others. In the end, Pekah’s selfless bravery is the means by which all the tribes are united. But there are dissenters, and Rezon escapes a well-deserved fate. When the promised heavenly signs appear, will there be peace at last, or will the malefactors once again threaten the safety of them all?


Now here's the exciting part...

Thanks to Daron D. Fraley one lucky winner will get a signed copy of the printed book AND an electronic copy of The Thorn!

No need to enter - I own a signed copy. I just want to add a recent thought about Daron's book.

Just this evening I was watching reruns. I realized that I enjoyed The Thorn because of the types of stories that intrigue and entertain me. I am a huge fan of Stargate SG1. Fans of Stargate can easily relate when life events on another planet foretell one universally significant event.
