Today’s Book of the Day is a highly rated YA Fantasy/Adventure from Kenneth G. Bennett. The Gaia Wars has an excellent 4.4 star rating and is only $3.99!
“Gaia Wars” is amazing. I got sucked into the story within the first five pages and the pace and excitement made it tough to put down. Ken Bennett has created a very fresh take on the epic fantasy tale, so if you like Tolkien, CS Lewis, Harry Potter, and other “big” stories, you’ll love “Gaia Wars.” FF – Amazon Reviewer
The Gaia Wars
by Kenneth G. Bennett
Rating: 4.4 Stars
Category: YA Fantasy/Adventure
Deadly secrets have been buried in the Cascade mountain wilderness for centuries. Hidden. Out of sight and out of mind.
Warren Wilkes, age 13, doesn’t like what a greedy housing developer has done to his peaceful mountain community, so he vandalizes the developer’s property, flees into the wild, and stumbles upon an ancient human skeleton revealed by torrential rain. More than old bones have been exposed, however, and the curious artifact Warren finds makes him question his own identity, and his connection to an ancient terror. A terror destined to rise again and annihilate all that Warren loves. He must fight or see his whole world destroyed.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I picked this up and literally did not put it down until I’d reached the back cover. Wow, impressive how quickly and deeply you get immersed in “Gaia Wars.” And it’s surprisingly original for the genre. Beautiful language, superb story telling, non-stop action.
This was such a delightful read. Kenneth has a way of pulling the reader in from the very first sentence that it’s hard to put the book down. I also found myself so intrigued with the history that he painstakingly put together. I confess I tried researching to see if the Denelai really existed. The history was that well-developed! It’s such a fascinating story. I truly recommend reading it and look forward to reading Battle For Cascadia, the next book in the series, soon.
The Gaia Wars is truly a great book! This young adult novel is the beginning of a series. The story is fast paced and draws the reader quickly into it. The characters are well developed as is the story line. The Gaia Wars is an engaging tale of a boy, Warren Wilkes, who has grown up with a deep connection to the natural world. Through history and circumstances beyond his control, he ends up in the middle of an adventure that is both frightening and beyond belief. Great book, can’t wait for the next in the series!
I loved the story line and the setting in the wilderness. In this book everything ties together perfectly and is full of twists. This book was extremely hard to put down because something was always going on. There were no slow parts in this book and I cant wait to read the second.
This is a completely engrossing story-I couldn’t put it down. It’s beautifully written and totally thrilling… Has anyone contacted Steven Spielberg about the movie rights?
