The conspirators and their allies from the first three novels give up on the gods, whose existence many of them doubt, and discover how to use horses in warfare. They prepare to employ them in a last battle to bring the prehistoric enemy hunters and farmers together as one people in a new kingdom and end warfare between them forever. Individuals who partner with persons of the same gender are once again in the front lines, risking their lives for their peoples. The first three novels-Promised Valley Rebellion, Promised Valley War, and Promised Valley Conspiracy-have won a number of awards. Reviewers have included these comments about the series. Reader Views: Its the storys prehistoric setting that provides the basis for the intellectual question which binds the Promised Valley books together: Could civilization and history, with their countless heaven-sanctioned wars and genocides, have begun differently? With that as his touchstone, Fritsch thoughtfully and compassionately offers answers through the story and its characters. While its an adventurous tale on its surface, its not what it seems to be- its much more. For me it was a book of revelations. For anyone who has never lost their childs heart and imagination, Promised Valley War will compel them to consider all that the book has to say to them. Thats what unforgettable books do. Kirkus: The authors well-rendered descriptions of the creeping onslaught of war give the reader a visceral feel for the endangered paradise that can occur despite the best intentions of the best people, and readers will be surprised by the twists he gives his tale. Alongside the careful plotting and natural-sounding dialogue, theres a refreshing amount of deeper resonances in the Promised Valley series, a steady undercurrent of commentary on the present day. Feathered Quill: An imaginative and well-crafted piece of fiction, featuring plenty of action and unexpected twists and turns. The suspenseful battles, sweeping scenery, and interpersonal drama would undoubtedly be a satisfying mix on the big screen. Are you listening, Hollywood?
