Reviews - What do customers think about Under Diamond Bar?
Great adventure story for middle school age kids Jan 12, 2008
Really great adventure for young kids, or for familys to read together. The author clearly has a strong grasp of the Bible and weaves it into the story in both subtle and strong ways. This story can inspire pre-teens to be both strong and caring. This is a great first novel and we're looking forward to reading the next in this series.
Surprising! Dec 30, 2007
Tammy is my cousin - I was very surprised, excited to find she wrote a book and expected to support it just because I love her.
I forgot we're related immediately when I became just as absorbed in this story as I have in the Series of Unfortunate Events, Harry Potter, and Left Behind books to name a few. It left me where it should - with a strong desire to read "Over Diamond Bar" which will be the second in her series. This to me is the sign of a great book and author.
As a lifetime Christian I really appreciate and admire her devotion to God's word and work in our lives. To think and write the book is amazing enough - to have Discovery Questions for Bible Explorers for each chapter in the back of the book is taking it to a level that can and should be used by many bible teachers.
I titled my review surprising not in Tammy's talents, for she has many, but rather in the fact that as families we often have no idea of the thoughts and desires of those we love and feel close with. To hear her voice through this medium is very precious to me and allowed an insight into the depth and magnitude of her gifts. You need to have this series in your collection.
Harry Potter Fans-Watch Out! The Under Diamond Bar Series has taken flight ! It is Fantastic! Nov 26, 2007
For young readers, young adults, and those of any age, who love a great story that has mystery, drama, suspense, all wrapped up in a novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat from page to page - "Under Diamond Bar - Journey into the Invisible" - is a book that you will love!
The story revolves around three siblings (two young girls and an older brother) who up to now have lived pretty ordinary lives in the city of Diamond Bar. While their house is being painted and the grates that cover the air ducts in the floor have been removed, the children think that they hear or see something coming from the open ducts. When the youngest daughter gets the courage to take a flash light and actually peer inside the duct, she is instantly swallowed up and taken into a secret world that exists under the city. The siblings soon discover that there are others, many others different from themselves, who are living in this secret and unfamiliar world under their town. As the remaining two siblings try to crack the code to this secret world to find their lost sister, they discover they will have to use, hand-drawn pictures, secret maps, journal entries, codes and many other things if they are going to make contact with the inhabitants of this new world, and find their sister.
The story line is really incredible and well written. I especially enjoyed the fact that Under Diamond Bar does NOT reference nor mention the occult or witchcraft in any way as a means to tackle problems or situations! This book takes a very fresh and different turn by showing readers the wonderful light of God and the tremendous supernatural power available through Him, as well as the incredible gifts and talents He empowers His children to use and posses to overcome adversity. One such talent in the book that is used is called "Seer-Vision" which, when developed, allows the oldest boy in the story to see invisible things & beings in the supernatural - just as clearly as if they were not invisible.
This first book in the Under Diamond Bar series left me excited and anxious for more! I think it will also do the same for anyone brave enough to take The Journey into the Invisible - Under Diamond Bar.
