Fire and Steel; A Generation Rising by Gerald N. Lund, Blog Tour & Book Review
The strongest steel is forged in the hottest flames. From master storyteller Gerald N. Lund comes a new blockbuster series chronicling the lives of two families who will face some of the most turbulent times in history as they are tried to their very cores. Will they be tempered and strengthened by the hammering blows, will they bend to the point of breaking, or will they completely shatter?
Lund is a master storyteller and Fire and Steel is another example of his prowess. He seamlessly blends historical facts with realistic characters that become lifelike to the the reader. I am not typically a fan of stories based during wars but this book is an absolute exception. Lund is a master researcher with notes at the end of each chapter explaining what actually occurred and what was fiction. He adds emotional elements that tug at your heart strings and make you feel like a part of the families in the book. This series is going to be amazing and I eagerly await the next book!
You can pick up your own copy via Deseret Book.
