I wanted to get a few more words in about this month's CSFF Tour feature - Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter by R. J. Anderson.
The tours can be interesting. Sometimes we have a book that has a mixed reception. Some of the members like it, and others don't. We have had occasions where the book had lukewarm reception across the board. We've had good debates about all of this.
And sometimes we have consensus that a book is pretty doggone good.
Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter seems to be the latter. I missed out on it somehow, but I've watched the other tour members because I was intrigued about this when it was brought up as a possibility for the tour. I especially watched for the reaction of some of our "manly men".
Everyone has had positive reviews of it. The story and characters have been consistently praised. The themes are also noted, although a few folks have wondered where this book comes under a "Christian" label. The consensus appears to be that it is not overtly Christian, but that there are themes of self-sacrifice, especially for those with eyes to see.
I am interested in picking this one up and catching up with what I missed! If you want more about the book from people who actually read the thing, check out this post, as it lists all the participants in one spot.
I'll catch up on the next tour!
