Kirkus Reviews calls The Gaia Wars “A solid first entry of a promising, imaginative new young adult fantasy series featuring a well-crafted character,” and readers agree. As of March 1, 2012, The Gaia Wars and its sequel, Battle for Cascadia, had received 57 reviews on Amazon and 96 reviews on Goodreads, for an average of 4.5 stars.
“Gaia Wars” is amazing. I got sucked into the story within the first five pages and the pace and excitement made it impossible to put down. Kenneth G. Bennett has created a very fresh take on the epic fantasy tale, so if you like Tolkien, CS Lewis, Harry Potter, and other “big” stories, you’ll
love “Gaia Wars.”
“I picked this up and literally did not put it down until I’d reached the back cover. Wow, impressive how quickly and deeply you get immersed in “Gaia Wars.” And it’s surprisingly original for the genre. Beautiful language, superb story telling, non-stop action.”
“A mythic story that’s startling and exciting from beginning to end.”
About The Gaia Wars
Deadly secrets have been buried in the Cascade mountain wilderness for centuries. Hidden. Out of sight and out of mind.
Warren Wilkes, age 13, doesn’t like what a greedy housing developer has done to his peaceful mountain community, so he vandalizes the developer’s property, flees into the wild, and stumbles upon an ancient human skeleton revealed by torrential rain. More than old bones have been exposed, however, and the curious artifact Warren finds makes him question his own identity, and his connection to an ancient terror. A terror destined to rise again and annihilate all that Warren loves. He must fight or see his whole world destroyed.
