  1. Favorite Quote: He gazed at her for several heartbeats, then sighed in resignation. “Evidence, huh? Fine, we’ll give that fragile faith or yours a boost…” -reminds me of how it is in the Bible with Jesus, everyone wanted to see a miracle or evidence that He was the Son of God.

    (if we’ve already posted reviews, can we re-post them at different websites and count them all, old and new posts?)


    • Oh, that’s a great moment in the story. Marcus always surprises me with his gruff manners.

      Regarding reviews, yes. It’d be great if you took the time to add your existing review to other sites. Tally up each new posting for each book/story. And thank you.

    My favorite angel would have to be Marcus…it’s a close call though! I love em all. : )

    One of the quotes that I really liked was “They sat together in comfortable silence for a little while, but finally, Prissie complained, ‘I’m never going to get to sleep.’
    ‘I will not either.’
    ‘That hardly counts! You don’t sleep!'”

    It amused me greatly. : )


  3. Micailah says:

    My favorite quote would have to be, “Randsom hooted with laughter as Marcus unwrapped a pink mug with “Daddy’s Little Princess” written on it.” I was laughing SO HARD!!:)
    Favorite angel? That’s a toughie. It’s like asking Baird to choose a favorite song! Um….probably Marcus? I find him quite intriguing. He’s also the only graft that I know of that’s a protector.:)


  4. Micailah says:

    My favorite Short for Baird: “Warning Owner is Subject to Spontaneous Outbursts of Song” pinned by Nextest

    “Nothing should be able to dim his bard-ish eyes!”


  5. Emma H says:

    Hmm… Favorite scene… I’d have to go with when Marcus finds Prissie in the Deep. I had been expecting Padgett or Abner to come for Prissie, but instead this random friend of Ransom’s showed up. I was completely not expecting him to be an angel, but looking back on everything that had already happened, it made a lot of sense. : )


  6. Emma H says:

    My favorite quote? Probably when Padgett says, “God has chosen the weak things of this world to put to shame the things which are mighty.” It reminds me of how God can use even the little things in my life to make a difference.


  7. Emma H says:

    It’s so hard to pick just one favorite angel! I think I’ll have to go with Tamaes. It’s sweet how he cares about Prissie so much, and I feel bad for him since Adin was his good friend.


  8. Emma H says:

    My favorite T-shirt for Baird is probably the red one Elza Kinde pinned that declares, “I’m perfectly abnormal.” Besides seeming like something Baird would wear someday, it matches his hair! : )


  9. Elayna says:

    Favorite Quote: Koji reached out ,and his fingertips grazed her hand, ” Promise me that you will not go off without me again. Let me stay by your side for all the time that remains to us.” This quote touched that part of me that wants to be assured that I am never alone. I know Prissie must have felt the same way.


  10. Elayna says:

    Favorite scene is when Marcus finds Prissie in the caves. I remember the first time that I read it I was so surprised! Would never have guessed, but I suppose that was the point. Prissie was so scared, and I was relieved to see a friendly face in the story.


  11. Sheath Porter says:

    Favorite quote;”Okay,” he said, then thumped his chest.”This is the real deal. Think of it as me having a pajama day!”

    Favorite Angel: Marcus

    Tee-shirt for Baird: Celestial

    Favorite scene: Marcus telling Prissie he’s an angel. Why?? Because who would of thought that Marcus is an angel??? God taught Pissie not to judge a person before knowing them!!!


  12. Abbey Eady says:

    My favorite angel is Marcus. He always makes me laugh and cry at all the perfect times with his gruff yet caring mannerisms.
    My favorite quote: “Oh, you,” Grammie Esme scolded fondly. “Yes, me!” Neil agreed. While he nibbled, the teen cast a sidelong look at Momma, who gave him a small smile. With a put-upon sigh, he ambled over to one of the wide kitchen drawers and fished out a vegetable peeler. This is also my favorite scene because you get to see how close knit the Pomeroys are in everything they do around the house.
    Favorite tee-shirt for Baird: Short people. I’m kind of short so this one made me laugh.


  13. Quote from The Hidden Deep:
    Kester: “Thank you for extending your generosity to one whose need was gerat.”
    Prissie: “But I didn’t know Baird needed anything.”
    Kester: “God knows what we do not,” “His plans encompass yours, and His purposes are always good.”

    Favorite scene: One of the most memorable scenes for me is when Milo tries to open the pickle jar. “Be my miracle” has become a household quote thanks to him.”

    Fave T-shirt: First in Flight from Nextest. It fits Baird so perfectly since he’s a First One.

  15. 1.I liked the my brain is 80% song lyrics shirt for Baird.
    2.Our (my sister and my) favorite scene was the cave scene(where Marcus found Prissie).
    3.Our favorite quote was: He favored her with a long look,” I’m gonna turn up the wattage,and I don’t think Tamaes would appreciate me blinding his charge.”
    4.I put my favorite angel on the other page.(It’s Ethan.)

    Hmm I can’t really remember any quotes and scenes from The Hidden Deep….my favorite scene I think of all time was when Ransom became a Christian but that was in the Broken Window, I believe….Oh wait I remember a scene I liked! I liked when Lavi led Prissie into the cave and then Marcus rescued her. It was amazing finding out that Marcus was an angel. :)

    I’ve made reviews before on Amazon (I don’t know if those count in the contest though). I recently made a Youtube channel where I talk about books and I was going to do a YouTube review of one of your books but I doubt that I’ll have one up before the contest ends. :/

    I’ll go see if I can find any t-shirts for Baird! :)


  17. Favorite quote: As it happened Prissie found it much easier to enjoy herself then anticipated. It was incredibly hard to frown when tiny hands kept reaching down to pat the furrow that formed between her brows.
    Favorite scene: When Prissie sees the real Baird and Kester for the first time.
    Favorite angel: Milo!
    My fav shirt for Baird is the one that says ‘Can’t get out of bed send help. Or Waffles, just send waffles.
