    1 thought on “Season of Wonder”

    1. I've been intrigued by this series ever since is was announced. A YA dystopian from a Christian perspective? What would that look like? How would that even work? Better yet, would I love this series as much as I love the River of Time series? Would it be as good? And then I won a galley of Season of Wonder in a giveaway from the author. It came in the mail two days ago, and I spent most of this afternoon reading it. Because it was GOOD. The story: To me, it was like I am Number Four meets Firefl [...]

    2. Forbidden love. Poetic imagery. Addictive writing. Bergren does it again! Prepare to enter a world so different from our own, yet one you never want to leave. Romance fans and adrenaline-junkies alike will root hard for strong Andriana and her knight Ronan as they fight to save the worldd their intense attraction. I swooned, I laughed, and I worried. Addictive to the very endI need book two now!!! *I also sent the following in an email to Lisa*"Dude, that build up to the kiss? Ronan is totally m [...]

    3. Update 2017:I am not rating this book anymore.2015:(4.95)I love this book! This book rocks and I need to read book two!This book reminds me of Anomaly by Krista McGee and Swipe by Evan Angler for the dystopia/futuristic part and The Kingdom series+The Knights of Arethtrae for more of the how things work and the fact that there are Knights and swords and such. Also it gives me Star Wars vibes, I don't know why! But this book so is very much it's own.The only reason I am not giving this a full fiv [...]

    4. This review was updated to the Official Rating System on March 19th,2016. This book was first reviewed on September 17th, 2014. About this book:“THEIR ARRIVAL WAS FORETOLD FOR YEARS…. Andriana is a Remnant, gifted as an empath and one of the Ailith, destined to act as humanity’s last shield against the horrors that now plague those who remain. After years of training in stealth and warfare, Andriana and her Knight protector, Ronan, are finally ready to answer the Call and begin the lif [...]

    5. I picked this book up a while ago at Thrift Books on a whim. I had money, I liked the cover, and I wanted to read another book by Lisa T. Bergren. I didn’t know how much I would like this book, but I was pleasantly surprised.Oky doky, let’s talk about the characters. This book follows a girl named Andriana, an Alith, one of the few chosen by the Maker to save the world! *cue dramatic music* At first I was skeptical at the whole save the world thing. It sounds like every book. Ever. But it wa [...]

    6. Lisa Bergren has joined the ranks of author's who've dived into the dystopian/fantasy genre! :-)I was really excited to see a Christian author (who's work I personally love!) publishing a novel in this category! There are a lot of books coming out in this genre, but they usually aren't those with good worldviews. So I was curious and intrigued how Bergren's new novel would turn out to be. And I was really pleased with the adventure I discovered within the pages of Remnants: Season of Wonder!Andr [...]

    7. This was really a new refreshing read for me. When I started it, I wasn't very interesting in anything I was reading. So this took me awhile to read (like more than a week, when three or four days in my average). Normally I think I would have read this super quick, it was that good.Their coming was foretold for many years. Children born on the seventh day of the seventieth-seventh Harvest after the Great War. Carrying the Ailith Strain and a birthmark in the shape of a crescent moon, they were r [...]

    8. This isn't my usual kind of reading. I mean, I almost never read YA or futuristic or fantasy or dystopian And this book is all of the above! But I needed something to listen to at work & this was about the only one available that I hadn't already read so this is the one I got! And the story itself isn't bad. Not *fantastic* but it is kinda interesting.This book get's pretty dark and violent at times, but I totally expected that and it really didn't bother me at all. The descriptions of viole [...]

    9. Enthralling. A superb novel. Dystopian, fantasy, Christian-allegory I am intrigued. I hear that Lisa Tawn Bergren meant for Season of Wonder to be something like The Hunger Games, but with a spiritual aspect. The result was remarkable. The Ailith, trained from birth to be warriors. Their knights, who fiercely protect them, fiercely love them. They have to save the world, equipped with special, supernatural gifts from the Maker. But the sons of Sheol will do everything in their dark power to make [...]

    10. This has been on my TBR list for a while, now that the series is done, and it's been done for awhile I know I wanted to read them. It is engaging from the first page. I enjoyed all the characters and the ending (while knowing I had the second one in hand) ended well and had me looking forward to diving right into the next. Moral Note: Some mild talk of ownership of women, and lusty leers, nothing graphic, no language, mild violence/torture.

    11. About a year ago I started reading this book, but life got a bit crazy and I didn't get more than 1 or 2 chapters into it. So when I picked it up again, it was a bit of an odd start because the beginning was familiar, but it'd been long enough where I'd lost the connection to it.Remnant was hard for me to get into, but I blame part of that on how haphazard this go round of reading it was. I read most of it in busy places where I was interrupted frequently and had a lot of general noise going on. [...]

    12. This was an amazing book! I mean, mind-blowing! The characters were great, each had likeable traits and faults, and they had unique personalities, but I do wish we could know more about Tressa and Killian. I picture him as Tuffnut in How To Train Your Dragon 2, with the dreadlocks. Weird, I know right? But, hey, if the shoe fitsIt's a dystopian book with some fantasy aspects. All of the main and supporting characters are or appear to be between sixteen and twenty. I mean, the emperor of the worl [...]

    13. This book overall really good so I'm sad not be able to give it five stars. I was just expecting more of a biblically accurate story because it's Christian Dystopia, and I found a few things quite theologically stupid. But the story line plot was excellent- of course, we're talking about Lisa Bergren here- and I found myself loving the characters, especially Raniero. Just something about him, the way he was father-figure, friend, and sometimes I wished a lover too. However, I loved Ronan as well [...]

    14. I've just finished reading this amazing book. I'm a HUGE fan of the River of Time series! And to be honest, I wasn't sure anyone, let alone Bergren herself, could do better. Admittedly, I was wrong.Season of Wonder is a book filled with nonstop, pulsating action, enough to take your breath away and I don't say that lightly. I must warn you, this book has some hot guys who are just plain awesome and duhh-reamy. I even adored the 'bad' guys and their swooning tacticsminded me of Lord Greco in the [...]

    15. This was a great book!!! Loved it!! The beginning was a little confusing because I didn't quite understand what was going on but it cleared up quick. Very unique story and I can't wait to read the next one!Would recommend to anyone :)

    16. For those who love young-adult reads with a heaping helping of action, suspense, and romantic tension, this first book in the "Remnants" series delivers. Bergren's talent for penning an engaging story can't be denied, and I zipped through the first half of this book in one rather late night. I admire the creativity involved in creating this series, as well as the variety of characters and settings. For me, though, not everything came together in a fluid way.First, I'm confused as to where the st [...]

    17. Gifted teens known as Remnants have been chosen and trained to act as humanity's last hope to rectify the horrors that are now part of everyday life in 2095. The Community has trained these teens as warriors and assigned them Knights of the Last Order as protectors; together they are a force that will be difficult to bring down. The Sons of Sheol, of course, are hell bent on doing just that.I am a huge fan of Lisa and her writing, so of course I have to read all her books that I can get my hands [...]

    18. While I have thoroughly enjoyed many of Bergren's novels, for some reason I was hesitant to start this one, but yet eager too. I know that makes no sense! However, I am so glad I did start this novel, which I also thoroughly enjoyed! Remnants is another foray for Bergren into the YA genre. It is however, a different type of novel than her previous River of Time series. Remnants could best be classified as a futuristic, post-apocalyptic novel also tapping into some fantasy elements, and it is Chr [...]

    19. I loved, Loved, LOVED her Waterfallseries, so I'm always nervous about any subsequent series from authors whose first series (in this case, I think Waterfall was her first YA series) I Capital L Loved. I always feel like the next set will be the red-headed step-child that you're alright about but you don't really like him all the same (poor gingers). But I digress. This was not that poor ginger foundling and I actually really enjoyed reading this. Plenty of action, some nice little lovey bits, a [...]

    20. I've just finished reading this amazing book. I'm a HUGE fan of the River of Time series! And to be honest, I wasn't sure anyone, let alone Bergren herself, could do better. Admittedly, I was wrong.Season of Wonder is a book filled with nonstop, pulsating action, enough to take your breath away and I don't say that lightly.

    21. Overall, it's a tremendous YA fantasy/dystopian novel with fascinating characters, plenty of action and adventure, and an intriguing storyline. Highly recommend picking it up and giving it a chance. I just finished reading it, and I already wish the next book was available! :)Lisa Tawn Bergren builds a tremendous cast of characters to carry the story. Each is unique and intriguing, something difficult to achieve when there are so many.Andriana makes a fascinating main character. She is strong an [...]

    22. 3.5 stars. Bravo to Ms. Bergren for writing this speculative tale with lots of great spiritual overtones. I always appreciate that in a book. While this one's labeled a dystopian, it's a mild dystopian with more of a fantasy feel in some ways. I enjoyed the concept of brave young warriors and chosen venturing out to fulfill their destinies. At times I did feel a little confused as I never fully understood exactly what or why these young adults were different. I would've liked to be told that a l [...]

    23. My 13 year old is a HUGE Lisa Bergren fan. This book did not disappoint. She loved how Lisa kept to her medieval fan base with a dystopian book. Her twist on this book is that in the future, things have regressed to the past. Technology has devolved. And life has changed. From page one you bound into Andriana's story -- one that removes her from any semblance of a normal life. Andriana and her kin are off to save what's left of the world from a tyrant while saving his brother. On the way they mu [...]

    24. PROPER REVIEW TO COMEMaybe I'm being too hard on this book. I just had so high hopes. I love the River of Time series and I love Lisa T. Bergren, but this book didn't quite meet my expectations. I love some of the characters (like Raneiro, Vidar and even Keallach), yet our main character, Andriana, and her romantic interest, Ronan, fell flat for me. I don't know why, I just didn't connect with them.

    25. I know, you are wondering why I reviewed Seasons of Fire before I reviewed the first book. Well, I couldn't get on that much when I read the first book and I forgot all about it! But now, I am cleaning out my to-read shelf and marking the ones I have read as read! This book was a little hard to get into but very exciting and intense. Really enjoyed it!

    26. ***I received a copy of this book for free from the author in return for my honest review***I liked it but I personally would not shelve it as dystopian, it felt more futuristic and post-apocalyptic to me with a little Fantasy thrown in. I would put it more into the category with The Girl of Fire and Thorns. This is not a bad thing. I really liked The Girl of Fire and Thorns, Shadow and Bone, Blood Red Road, all books I would probably shelve this one by.This book definitely has a hero quest stor [...]

    27. I so loved, loved, LOVED "Remnants: Season of Wonder"! It truly is one of the best YA books I have ever read! The reason this book is so amazing is because of the powerful symbolism that was woven into all the characters and events! I know that the book is suppose to be more of a dystopian kind of a novel (and it really is), but I felt it to be more allegorical in a sense! I truly believe that many of the things written showed how Christians are suppose to be with their relationship with God and [...]

    28. I'll start out by saying this was one of the more interesting books that I have read. I originally picked it up because I read two other series' by the author, Lisa T. Bergren, and thought that I might as well read another one, because she is a great writer. However, from the start, I wasn't impressed. The whole book was very confusing, and it felt as though everything was out of place. But as the story went on, it did get a tiny bit better, and things got more cleared up. I still would not reco [...]
