I have never read a Sci-Fi book.
It is true, I have never read a science fiction before, in my life…until I read the book, Radialloy, by J. Grace Pennington. The book changed me. I am now dying to read Pennington’s newer works, in her Firmament series. I never knew it would be possible to write a sci-fi book, with a Christianity twist. She nailed it!
I must be honest…
This book was SOOO addicting!
I mean it! It was so hard for me to put this book down, once I started reading it. I told myself, just read one chapter, and I can read more later. Well, that one chapter turned into two, and those two chapters turned into three, and the next thing I knew, I was reading chapter five! I had to slam the book down and put it away, because I would have kept reading it, and I needed to do something else.
If I would have read the book in consecutive hours, I would have had it finished in one day, but recently, I haven’t had that opportunity. I am an adult now, with adult responsibilities, so I have to be responsible of how I spend my days. (I should probably write that down somewhere, so I can keep reminding myself of that…)
Radialloy, a Christian Sci-Fi for Teens:
I won’t go into too much detail of what the book entails, because then you and your teen wouldn’t find it necessary to read the book, and you need to read it…
The year is 2320, and Andi Loyd’s life is about to be turned upside down. Her adoptive father, a Doctor on board a starship, is starting to mysteriously lose his memory. Everything Andi loved and knew, is about to change completely, when a few strangers aboard the starship begin to stir trouble.
Secrets from Andi’s past come barreling toward her, but with her father’s memory failing and the danger on the starship, she isn’t sure who to trust with her new-found truths…
The adventure never ends as Andi tries to save the lives of her father, keep the ship from falling into enemy hands, and protect her secret from falling into the laps of criminals.
- The story never gets dull. EVER. You will never lose interest, but you might just read the book in one day.
- There is no foul language.
- No questionable actions between girl and boy.
- The story does talk about God and trusting Him in everything, even when we don’t understand what is happening.
- There are more books in the series! (Thank goodness…)
J. Grace Pennington has been telling stories for as long as she can remember, and writing them down since she was about five years of age. She has always loved science fiction because of the opportunities it affords to explore so many different themes and ideas, plus the fact that it’s just plain cool. Pennington currently lives in the beautiful Texas Hill Country with her parents, her eight younger siblings, and her beloved horse Pioneer. When Pennington isn’t writing, she enjoys reading good books, playing soundtracks on the piano, and looking up at the stars.
Other books J. Grace Pennington has written:
Disclaimer: J. Grace Pennington reached out to me a while ago and asked if I would be willing to review her book. I agreed and received a free book for review purposes and a monetary compensation, but these opinions are entirely mine.
Take it from someone who has never read a sci-fi before, is a Christian, and has more of a conservative judgement when it comes to books…this is a definite keeper. Normally, if I saw a book like this I wouldn’t really be as interested, but because I have grown to know, Pennington, on a more personal level, I was more than willing to read it, because I knew the Christian values her and her family respected, and knew I wouldn’t have anything to worry about.
Little did I know how talented Pennington was, but boy…she is superb!I will receive commission on any sales made on my blog. To learn more, read my disclosure policy.
