Giveaway & Blog Tour: Remnants: Season of Wonder


Author: Lisa T. Bergren

Genre: Fantasy

Series: Remnants series

Number in series: 1st

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9

Type: Fiction

Number of pages: 304

Time period: Future

Publisher and price: Blink, $15.99 (hardcover!)

My overall opinion: Lisa’s newest book did not disappoint in the least! I am again amazed by the genres that Lisa has covered with such accuracy (the 1800s west in The Homeward Trilogy, and time travel to 1500s Italy in The River ofTime series and early 1900s Europe in the Grand Tour series). Now she forges on a new time – the future! One thing I especially loved was the creative names. They’re unique, but still easy to pronounce. My favorites included Ronan, Andriana, Kapriel, and Tressa. Cool or what? This book is a page-turner. Andriana, the heroine, is fierce yet gentle and she has a special gift for feeling the emotions of others. I could identify with her remarkably well. And then Ronan…excuse me while I attempt to collect my thoughts on this amazing guy. Lisa created yet another swoon-worthy hero – I swear she has a gift for that! The whole story is mesmerizing, and I guarantee you that you won’t be forgetting it anytime soon! The locations were great, and the action was splendid. The whole book is quite unpredictable. I’m absolutely keeping this one, and I can’t wait for book 2!

Want to buy a copy? Here are the links!


But wait! I have a copy to give away to one lucky winner! This is a giveaway you want to enter and a book you want to read! Here, a little blurb about it:

Andriana is a Remnant, one of the gifted teens born on the seventh day during the seventy-seventh Harvest after the Great War, and destined to act as humanity’s last shield against the horrors that now plague those who remain.

After years of training in stealth and warfare, Andriana and her Knight protector, Ronan, are finally ready to answer the Call and begin the life they were designed for. But as they embark with the other Remnants on the first of their assignments, they quickly discover that the world beyond their protected Valley home is more dangerous than they imagined.

The Sons of Sheol will stop at nothing to prevent Dri and Ronan from rescuing anyone sympathetic to the Remnants’ cause. And as the Remnants attempt to battle the demonic forces, other enemies close in. Dangers intensify, but so do Dri's feelings for Ronan--the one emotion she is not meant to feel. In the midst of their mission, Andriana must find a way to master her feelings, or risk compromising everything.

I don't have time to do my normal, more elaborate, Rafflecopter giveaway. So if you're interested in winning... all you have to do this time is leave a comment and tell me: have you read any of Lisa's books before? If so, which one(s)?

Such grand news to read another positive review of this book - it looks wonderful and naturally I'm eager to read it. ;)

I've read Lisa's grand tour series (love) and am next planning to read her River of Time books. Those are VERY high on my TBR after all the gushing I've heard!

Sounds like an awesome book! I'd love to meet her Darcy-ish character. I haven't read any of her other books yet, though I really want to read her Grand Tour books.

Thank you for a chance to win a book! I have read the River of Time series, I loved it. I really want to read this one so if I don't win I will be buying it. After I read the River of Time series I started following Lisa Bergren. This has turned out very well, not just finding her new books, but today leading me to this blog that I probably wouldn't have found otherwise. I am a huge Austen fan and look forward to checking in on this blog. A chance to win a book and finding an Austen fan blog (no one thinks or sees things like an Austen fan)- a very good day. P.S. the Homeward Triolgy is what I'm reading now and sitting next to me is the Grand Tour series waiting patiently or it's turn. -I was a homeschooler too. Loved it so much I'm doing most of my college online.
