We received a complimentary copy of Foundlings, Book I of the Peleg Chronicles from Zoe & Sozo Publishing for our honest review of this adventurous work. In all honesty, it didn't interest me, personally, but my 13 yo. son was thrilled because he loves stories of dragons, knights, and adventure. The story starts fairly slow with big, complicated words and no real action to keep the reader interested. Eventually, the plot becomes more exciting and it's hard to stop with just one chapter. We will definitely purchase Book II to find out how the saga ends.
As a Mom, I appreciated the introduction, summary, and explanation of various Biblical aspects sent with the book. I found learning the heart of the author even more interesting than the book, itself. Thank you, Zoe & Sozo for your steadfast heart in promoting a Biblical worldview in your literature. It's extremely hard to find this caliber of reading at this age level (7th grade & up).

Foundlings, book one of The Peleg Chronicles
is Historical Fiction that takes place in the
time period of Peleg, soon after the tower of
Babel dispersion. In its pages we meet
dragons, giants, false priests, the death hunt,
an under-city of the Dwarven Brotherhood,
and many memorable characters.
The story begins with Lord McDougal and his
faithful shield-bearer, Fergus Leatherhead,
departing their lands with giants at their
backs, while before them lie in wait denizens of
the bog-land and forest.
Ever ready to protect and serve others, they
er in tow an assortment of displaced
adventurers and find themselves embroiled in
a mysterious search for the foundlings:
orphaned Thiery with his companion Horatio
the white wolf, and Suzie who has been
deceitfully retained by the thieves Elvodug and
Others also seek the foundlings, and their
purposes are most sinister - Dragon Priests
who practice cozen sacrifices, and their leader
Count Rosencross who is torn by his God given
conscience and his pursuit of personal glory.
Onward toward the city of Hradcanny they
travel, meeting with treachery, beast attacks,
camaraderie and psalms of praise with an eye
toward the gospel. Though their battles are at
times fierce and the outcomes uncertain, the
author maintains the integrity of these noble
characters, who through weakness are made
strong by Him in whom they trust.
Foundlings weaves together the Biblical
principles of chivalry, truth, courage, duty,
faith and love within the framework of Genesis,
and a bold adherence to its historicity. It's an
exciting page turner that leaves you wanting
more, but more importantly it leaves the
reader with Godly heroes to think on and
emulate, and a young earth creationist view of
history that conforms to the Word of God.
