Editorial Reviews

Review

"A well-rendered description of the creeping onslaught of war. Readers will be surprised by the twists the author gives his tale. Alongside the careful plotting and natural-sounding dialogue, there are deeper resonances. A captivating novel that will transport readers back to prehistory times while reminding them of their own." Kirkus

"Promised Valley War is an imaginative and well-crafted piece of fiction. The plot features plenty of action and unexpected twists and turns. . . . The balance of suspenseful battles, sweeping scenery, and interpersonal drama would undoubtedly be a satisfying mix on the big screen. Are you listening, Hollywood?" Feathered Quill Book Reviews

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?
