I've always enjoyed futuristic fiction. There is always a fine line between the "could be possible" and the "totally unbelievable." Lightning has that good balance.

Review of Lightning by Bonnie S. Calhoun
This is the fourth book in this futuristic series- The Stone Braid Chronicles. Two of the books, a prequel and a book that falls in the middle of the main two books, are free on Amazon. I haven't read the others, and I was missing some important information. But there was enough information throughout the story that I could catch up.

The story line of the Stone Braid Chronicles is very interesting. It's fast-paced and compelling. The characters are well-developed, and I was really drawn into their lives. It's often difficult to balance the story development and the character development. Lightning has a good balance of both. The plot moves along, but at the same time I had a good view of the characters' inner thoughts and feelings.

You can learn more about Lightning below and can read a chapter. I give the book 4 stars and a PG-13 rating for content. You can find the book on Amazon here.

Bonnie S. Calhoun


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 with body count, blood, or 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 and two cats, all of whom think she’s waitstaff!

Her latest series is a YA dystopian with Revell titled Stone Braide Chronicles. The first book Thunder published in 2014. The second book Lightning published Oct 2015. There are also two FREE e-book short stories. Tremors is the prequel to Thunder, and Aftershock (short story) comes before Lightning.


After she found her real father, life for Selah should have felt settled. But the horrors have just begun. In her broken world of toxic earth and tribal clashes, Selah must battle the forces of nature alongside those in the Mountain who are calling for her blood. Haunted by the pain of mounting losses, she forges on, seeking her lost family and uncovering new mysteries. But the ultimate betrayal of her own body may soon make her quest impossible as it becomes apparent that what has made her new could also drive her to a life of madness.
