R.J. Larson
As a part of this scavenger hunt, I’m hosting R.J. Larson. 

R. J. Larson is the author of numerous devotionals featured in publications. She lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with her husband and their two sons. Prophet marks her debut in the fantasy genre.

This is what the book’s about:
“If she agrees to become the Infinite’s prophet, Ela knows she will die young. Yet she can’t imagine living without Him.”

Book one in BOOKS OF THE INFINITE, a new Biblical fantasy series from Bethany House. PROPHET is inspired by the scriptures and prophets such as Jeremiah and Ezekiel. PROPHET has been picked by critics and The Christian Manifesto as a top book for 2012!
