Love the Hunger Games? Enter to Win This New Dystopian Series

           I rarely read YA, but there's something about dystopian novels that draws me in. Ever since my exposure to Orwell's Animal Farm at the tender age of seven, (yes, I read it behind my parent's backs), I've been fascinated by the idea of a world once good, now taken over by evil.
         Part one of the final book in the Hunger Games series is coming out in theaters this week. If you don't want to spend a year chafing over part 2 of Mocking Jay not being available yet, enter to win the GIVEAWAY for this YA Dystopian novel instead. I haven't read it yet, but it looks like a real page turner. 

         In post-apocalyptic America, Selah Chavez is crouched in long grass on a shore littered with the rusted metal remnants of a once-great city. It is the day before her eighteenth Born Remembrance, and she is hunting, though many people refuse to eat animal flesh, tainted by radiation during the Time of Sorrows. What Selah's really after are Landers, mysterious people from a land across the big water who survive the delirium-inducing passage in small boats that occasionally crash against the shoreline. She knows she should leave the capture to the men, but Landers bring a good price from the Company and are especially prized if they keep the markings they arrive with.
       Everything falls to pieces when the Lander Selah catches is stolen by her brothers--and Selah wakes up the next morning to find the Lander's distinctive mark has suddenly appeared on her own flesh. Once the hunter, Selah is now one of the hunted, and she knows only one person who can help her--Bohdi Locke, the Lander her brothers hope to sell.
       With evocative descriptions of a strange new world that combines elements of scientific advances, political intrigue, and wilderness survival, Bonnie S. Calhoun weaves a captivating tale of a world more like our own than we may want to admit.

What Others Are Saying
“Calhoun (Cooking the Books) paints a dark, serious world and does not shy away from the violence that her characters suffer as they struggle with prejudice and even genocide, the latter activity veiled by justifications of scientific knowledge and progress.”
~Publishers Weekly, Oct, 2014~
“Heroine Selah is wonderful, smart and strong, and you’ll finish this title looking forward to the next.”
~Romantic Times, Oct 2014~
“This is one of the things that mitigates the inevitable comparisons to the other dystopian novels released in recent years: we are never quite sure who is good and who is evil, and even when we think we have them figured out, some new tidbit turns what we thought on its head.”
~The Christian Manifesto, Nov 2014

Bonnie S. Calhoun is Owner/Director of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance, owner/publisher of Christian Fiction Online Magazine, Northeast Zone Director for American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), and the ACFW ‘2011 Mentor of the Year.”
She loves to write, but it doesn't make her happy unless there are the three B's...body count, blood, and blowing things up. She also has mad skills at coding HTML, and website design. And she lives in a log cabin in the woods with fifteen acres and a pond full of bass, though she'd rather buy fish at the grocery store. Bonnie shares her domain with a husband, a dog, and two cats, all of whom think she’s waitstaff!
