The Books of Things to Come (A Hand of Adonai novel) by Aaron Gansky is another great fantasy book, the first in the series. It combines medieval-type fantasy with technology and even has a comic book/video game feel at times. It is different with a lot of twists and turns and I like that…
The Book of Things to Come
Winner of the 2016 Selah Award for Young Adult Fiction
At first, Lauren Knowles is thrilled to find she’s “clicked” herself inside Alrujah, a fantasy game she created with her best friend, Oliver Shaw. But the exhilaration of serving as a magical princess fades when she senses a demonic force – one they did not create – lurking in the shadows.
Though they created a world of wondrous beauty blue-leafed forests, shimmering silver rivers, and expansive medieval castles Lauren and Oliver soon find their secret realm to be an ever-changing land of dark oppression and deadly sorcery. With the help of Aiden Price and Erica Hall, two friends from their high school in North Chester, the four teens must find a way out that can only be discovered from the dusty pages of the ancient leather-bound tome, The Book of Things to Come.
Faced with questionable allies, invisible enemies, and increasingly dangerous levels of difficulty, the four must learn to work together, to trust each other … or be forever lost in this deadly game of virtual reality that’s become all to real.
Careful what you create – it could kill you.
