Great start to a new series. This book is full of action, adventure and keeps you turning the pages. It is very well written and you can see the book play out in your mind. I look forward to reading the rest of this series. Thank you Pelican Book Group for the free copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.

Dove Strong is the first book of a trilogy, and is a great start to the series. The story gets your attention and holds it throughout the book. Erin Lorence’s attention to detail makes it easy to imagine the events as you read them and paints a clear picture of the characters.

Besides the great story, I enjoyed seeing the messages about following God that were part of the personalities of the people. Both sides, Christian and non-believer, were represented. Even the struggles Christians face in obeying God when opposition comes were included. I could relate to several of the issues faced, especially Dove’s problem of saying the wrong things or using the wrong wording.

The ideas of faith in God, trusting others, and caring for the lost were evident in the plot. All together, the book is a good illustration of how we can start inserting our own opinions and desires in place of seeking God’s will. I look forward to reading the next books in the series.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

This story makes you think about Christianity’s future, and how Christians relate to unbelievers. Dove lives with her family in the treetops - she can climb like a cat and fall like a feather. She is chosen to go on a mission to a faraway place with a person she does not even know. Her new friend Melody’s family lives underground and they rarely see the sun or the sky.
God has gifted both girls with extraordinary gifts that they will need on their journey. The girls are captured by 2 unbelievers, Wolfe and his sister, Jezebel, Usually unbelievers kill or hurt believers, but Wolfe and his sister act as if they want to be friends. Dove and Melody are given their freedom by Wolfe , but then they are chased by a dog and they find shelter in a snake - filled dumpster!
What other dangers await the girls in this new world?
