Series update - With book 5 out, I’m already getting questions about what comes next. There will be another Ransom book! I’ve always planned for a sixth book to wrap up some of the loose ends of the series. At this point it’s mostly plotted out and I’m pretty excited about it. This isn’t going to be a quick book Author: Rachel Schurig. Elwin Ransom is the main character in the first two books of C.S. Lewis' The Space Trilogy, namely Out of the Silent Planet and the final book, That Hideous Strength, he is a lesser character (the main characters being Mark and Jane Studdock) in charge of a group that is resisting demons that are trying to take over Earth, and playing the role of a mentor.

Ransom is the follow-up book to The Secret and it definitely exceeded my expectations. Not only did it include the secondary characters I loved but also gave me a hero and heroine I could fall in love with and a romance over which I could swoon.

Like many of Duncan's young adult books, this one is a thriller. Five high schoolers are taken hostage and held for ransom when riding home from school one day/5(62). Book Summary A novel of suffering, sorrow, and redemption, Ransom tells the story of the relationship between two grieving men at war: fierce Achilles, who has lost his beloved Patroclus in the siege of Troy; and Priam, king of Troy, whose son Hector killed Patroclus and was in turn savaged by Achilles.

Ransom by Rachel Schurig was a typically sweet NA romance with a rock star hero and a timid but likeable heroine. Even though the story didn't fully manage to hook me (mostly because I couldn't completely connect with the characters), I still enjoyed reading it/5.

As I turned the last page, I felt so darn sorry for Ransom''s dad. I bought this book at a used book store and it fell apart in my hands as I read it--which is both satisfyingly zen and utterly appropriate.

Ransom frequently links fate to social convention and tradition, in part because both imply limitations on people's ability to act freely. Priam's reference to chance therefore strikes Hecuba as dangerous both because it questions the power of the gods, and because it could undermine the fabric of Trojan society: if there are limits to fate.

For Priam, the authority that comes with age is a large part of what enables him to conduct the ransom exchange and get back Hector's body. Relationship between father and son.

The relationships that form between fathers and sons are at the heart of this novel. The book is about a father ransoming his son's dead body.Looking for books by Dana Ransom?
