The Strand Prophecy Book 1

Welcome to J.B.B.Winner's Pump Up Your Book Promotion Virtual Book Tour.

The Strand Prophecy Book 1 by J.B.B. Winner is a young adult science fiction.

It is the story about Steve Cutter, who is a scientist. He makes a startling discover about how evolution is accelerating. He wants to protect the innocents so he uses his alter ego, The Strand, to inform the United States President. When that fails, he uses cell phones and the Internet to inform the world.

I found this book to be very exciting and thrilling. Liked I predicted in The Strand Prophecy/rescheduled review, I was unable to put it down. This was another book that made me stay up to late.

I found that Steve Cutter to be a complex character. Steve has a lot of emotional baggage that he carries with him. Because of these issues, he feels the need to help and protect the innocent especially his niece Anna. Hopefully we will see Steve come to terms with his past and as will with his future in the rest of the books in the series.

The authors created a great alternative universe. Everything they created seems to fit in their world. They have imagined some very terrifying creatures. It seems that every living thing that has evolved into something terrifying with the exception of a couple of living things. Hopefully we will see some more friendly and helpful creatures in future books. Everything can't evolve into something terrifying. Right?

This book has some strong female characters. As a mother of two girls, I like when books have females in a strong role. I enjoyed Anna and the twins Trib and Rose. They are all one tough cookie.

I can't wait for the next book Extinction Embrace Book II of The Strand Prophecy to come out . It is suppose to be release sometime in 2008.

Happy Reading

Sounds like a really good book! My oldest son has been the only scifi fan in the family. I miss those days. :)
