Editorial Reviews

Review

Feathered Quill Book Reviews (Diane Lunsford): "Upon finishing Promised Valley Peace, my take away from [the Promised Valley series] is a strong sense of having experienced an incredibly interesting epic tale of 'what if.'. . . [Ron Fritsch's] signature style of writing several subplots, twists and turns in the early pages delivers an intrinsic feeling of being at the starting line of a champion race that is about to begin. Indeed, Mr. Fritsch has accomplished fantastic closure to his epic series in book four, Promised Valley Peace. . . . [I]t is genuinely thought-provoking with an epic ending that complements this intriguing civilization of people."

The US Review of Books (Michael Radon)
: "this fourth title and conclusionto the Promised Valleyseries . . . ties up all the loose endsand leaves the reader with closure and satisfaction as they turn the last page,assuring devotees of this tale a pleasing ending. The friendship and affectionbetween these youths is heartwarming, the sweeping action of the battles andcombat is breathtaking, and the pacing is rapid-fire and wastes none of the readers'time. While perhaps being a little graphic for younger readers, teenagers andadults will be swept away by the details that bring this saga to life and toits close."

Kirkus Reviews: "the interminable threat of war allows Fritsch to make the conflict an allegory for every human conflict to come. . . . A wise, bittersweet conclusion to a sprawling tale of prehistoric war and peace."


Readers' Favorite (Eileen Johnson): "Well-written and imaginative, I would highly recommend Promised Valley Peace by Ron Fritsch."

From the Author

Ron Fritsch has published a four-book series of Promised Valley novels: Promised Valley Rebellion, Promised Valley War, Promised Valley Conspiracy and Promised Valley Peace. The novels have won a number of awards and highly favorable reviews. The series is complete.

In the epic Promised Valley adventure, prehistoric farmers inhabit a fertile river valley they believe their gods promised them in return for their good behavior and obedience. Their enemies, hunters roaming the mostly barren hills beyond the mountains enclosing the valley, believe their gods gave it to them.

Both sides, though, value individuals who partner with persons of their own gender. Because they have no children to raise, they take leadership positions, especially in times of war.

The four Promised Valley novels ask whether civilization and history, with their countless heaven-sanctioned wars and genocides, could've begun differently.

The individuals who live, struggle, revel, die and survive in the novels confront fundamental questions:

How factual are the stories their ancestors handed down to them?

Despite those stories, are they and their enemies equal human beings who deserve to be treated as such?

Are their gods -- who appear to be the same deities for the farmers as well as the hunters, even as they exhort both of their supposedly favored peoples to kill the other -- truly benevolent gods?

Or do their gods, outside of those ancestral stories that might not be true, simply not exist?
