"The Vault Between Spaces" by Chawna Schroeder Book Tour and Giveaway
About the Book
Book: The Vault Between Spaces
Author: Chawna Schroeder
Genre: Young adult Christian Fantasy
Release Date: February 11, 2020
Every legend must start somewhere…
No prisoner who enters the gates of HopeWell ever leaves. But from the moment Oriel sets foot inside Anatroshka’s most formidable prison camp, she unsettles both commandant and prisoner alike with eyes that see beyond the surface and music that trails her everywhere.
Petite and delicate though she appears, Oriel bows before neither threat nor punishment. Moreover, she makes no attempt to hide her intention: Oriel plans to escape the inescapable HopeWell.
But when facades are stripped away and myth becomes clothed in flesh, what begins as a prison break becomes a mission to stop the invasion of evil itself.
"The Vault Between Spaces" by Chawna Schroeder is definitely a novel of evil verses good. It is of the fantasy genre which I am stilling trying to enjoy since it seems it is a thing now, but I still have to be honest and say I have a way to go on enjoying it fully but it is growing on me. I am not sure how to rate this book because at first, I was thinking ok, this book might be a good read and then I was confused, but at the end of the book I figured out the story was the message of faith and repentance.
This book had me thinking of Adam and Eve and Hitler.
Just as a side note, I am taking this book to reread at night on my mission trip, to see if since I understand the book more if the scenes that confused me might make me enjoy this book more.
Again, the fault is me and not the author, if you enjoy fantasy then I recommend this book and even if you are just wanting to try fantasy, then I recommend this book.
I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.
About the Author
Chawna Schroeder is Minnesotan writer who enjoys snow, chai tea, and playing “what if?”—even if that game occasionally gets her into trouble. She also loves stretching both her imagination and her faith to their limits and helping others to do the same. As a result, her writing explores the vastness of God, His multifaceted nature, and the potential of a life lived with Him. This means both learning the boundaries He created for our protection as well as demolishing the human boxes that restrict both God and people.
When she isn’t reading or writing, a variety of other activities fill her “free” time: practicing piano for church, preparing Sunday school lessons, studying the biblical languages, or working on one of her handwork projects while
enjoying a movie.
Life can seem so drab and dreary, clouds of monotony graying the days and the chill of trouble piercing the night. It is not the world we would choose to live in, yet it is the world we often find ourselves trapped within, imprisoned by circumstances beyond our control.
Perhaps that is why myths and fairy tales carry such strong appeal. They promise what we see is not all there is. They infuse the world with possibility. They dare us to believe that now isn’t forever. They offer us hope.
Yet many myths and fairy tales are so far removed from our normal world, we end up dismissing them as irrelevant, the stuff of children and starry-eyed idealists. For no sensible person would believe in seven-headed dragons or wing-footed messengers, in fairy godmothers and cursed spinning wheels. Yet the magnetism of such stories remains.
Which is where The Vault Between Spaces comes in. We begin with a recognizable world. Chain-link fences and cars, umbrellas and guns—these are things we know. More than that, the world feelsfamiliar: drab, monotonous, inescapable, hopeless.
Then one lone girl steps into that world—our world—and changes everything, challenging us to question all that we thought we knew. Could there be more truth to those childhood tales than we ever dared believe?
To celebrate her tour, Chawna is giving away a themed basket including autographed copy of the book, $10 iTunes gift card (since music plays a dominate role in the book), embroidered bookmark, and embroidered denim book bag!!
