David Sanz’s journey south is halted abruptly after a devastating turn of events. In a tense battle for survival against thieves and the militia he has been fleeing from, he finds himself shackled and incarcerated in the prison he once guarded.

The Duke of Sagrat’s brother, Rafael Perato, has survived the war, and the royal court’s treacherous intrigues, but when news of his brother’s death reaches their Most Catholic Majesties his life is thrown into turmoil. Banished by the king, and tasked with carrying out insurmountable missions, he becomes entangled in a web of deadly plots and subterfuge, which threaten not only Sagrat but his very life.

In this fast paced epic, David Sanz and Rafael Perato face adversaries more devious and powerful than themselves, and it is only faith, courage, and unlikely alliances, that may save them both from the Inquisitor and the deadly marauder, Alejandro.

Editorial Review
Readers' Favorite, Five Stars

Readers' Favorite

The Scattered Flock is the second novel in The Flock Trilogy by Jana Petken. Set in Spain during the Spanish Inquisition, the book immediately struck me as incredibly well researched and thought out in terms of the historical elements built into the story. The author has a very natural writing style as she develops her characters and the plot itself. David Sanz is the lead character, who is re-introduced following the first book, and is a Spanish Jew who has endured many tragedies in his life to date. We are then introduced to a second protagonist, Rafael Perato, leading a much more regal existence, who gives the reader a definite contrast to the life and times during this era. Both, however, are on their own quest for justice during what is evidently a cruel and torturous period of history.

Jana Petken writes a real page turner in The Scattered Flock, and I didn’t feel that I had missed out by not reading the first book in this series. This is the art and quality of a good writer, one who allows a reader to pick up any novel in any order, but at the same time, leaving me, as the reader, wanting to go back to the start and read the first book in this intriguing and cleverly written trilogy. I congratulate Jana on her style, poise and passion, and whilst the story line can be graphic at times, she does this with grace, making me feel like I was there watching every moment in her characters’ lives. Truly deserving of its five star rating, The Scattered Flock is a fantastic read! Really excellent story - I literally could not put it down, reading from cover to cover!

Only 39 women were recruited to this section that became known as Churchill’s Secret Army during W.W.2.Many more men were enlisted as agents, some from less than salubrious backgrounds.

After the gruelling training Gloria is parachuted into occupied France, where she meets up with her fellow agents from the French Résistance.

Following a number of successful missions, she has the misfortune of being captured and after days of interrogation and torture is sent to Dachau Concentration camp. Here she endures the horror of Nazi German during WW2.

Gloria, malnourished and sick manages to escape when on a march to another camp as the war is coming to an end.

This is when her courage and tenacity again show through as she makes her way on foot, encountering great hardship as she endeavours to make her way back into France in an attempt to meet up once again with her comrades.

Reviewed By Rabia Tanveer for Readers’ Favorite - 5 stars!
“...In true Deb McEwan style, there is a lot of dark humor in the novel and you will enjoy this book just as much as the others. These characters have developed beautifully and, as always, the dialogues reveal so much about the new characters. Book Three in the series lives up to the bar set by the previous two wonderful novels. It was amazing.”

Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite - 5 stars!
“…McEwan’s characters have depth and the conflicts they encounter are authentic and real. There are intriguing shades of gray in the world she’s created.
This is a seriously good book that covers important issues. Friends & Revenge gets the reader involved in the lives of these unlikely soldiers, making it a book you just won’t want to put down.
Unlikely Soldiers, Book 3: Friends & Revenge is most highly recommended.”

ARMY LIFE BACK IN THE DAY

Synopsis

The award-winning creator and screenwriter of ground-breaking BBC television show, Spirit Warriors starring Jessica Henwick (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Games of Thrones) brings you an action packed thrill-ride in her debut novel which will engage and excite fans of Maximum Ride, Dean Koontz's Watchers and The Last of Us.

It's so easy to take things for granted. Take, for example, trees.

Oaks provide shade and plenty of foliage to protect against sudden showers and prying eyes, but there was also the added bonus of load-bearing lower branches that someone nimble could scramble onto should trouble come calling... and you should know, trouble had me on speed-dial.

Living on the streets wasn't a walk in the park, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home, and after some eight months of being on my own, I'd gotten my routine down to a fine art - a morning dumpster dive followed by a dip in the Central Park pond - when one day I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.

We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn. The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would've been the end of our story if we hadn't been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully's clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.

So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a seemingly all-powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?

Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe - even if it meant risking my own life.


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"The story masterfully combined various threads and powered along through to an explosive finale. This is sure to be a classic once more people hear of it. Amazed this is the author's first book." - Amazon Customer.

"I was loving it so much... Before I was even half way through this book I went back to this site to see if it listed a sequel... can hardly wait!" - Sheila LS, Amazon Reviewer

"It is a fast-paced and action-packed book with three very different but very sympathetic main characters who will in turn make you laugh, cry and really, really want a dog!" - AlbaR, Amazon Reviewer

"Bandit, Chase and Sully keep this amazing story moving at a fast and furious pace. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this hard to put down book." - JMP, Amazon Reviewer.

"Jo Ho’s screenwriting background is clearly evident in the pacing, which takes all of the time necessary to tell the story and describe the setting and characters but wastes no words doing so... I highly recommend it to anybody who’s a fan of YA or even just a fan of reading in general." - Amazon Customer.

Synopsis

Official Review: Chameleons by Marcus A. Nannini


4 out of 4 stars
________________________________________

At the depths of Pearl Harbor, on the morning of December 7th, 1941, Imperial Japanese Naval Lieutenant Masaharu Yokoyama and his engineer Sadamu Kamita await with bated breath aboard their midget submarine. In present day Kailua, Oahu, a skeleton is dug up in Auntie Lee’s backyard, launching not only a full blown naval investigation, but also a race against the clock to beat the media to the punch. Thus begins Chameleons by Marcus A. Nannini, a breathtaking historical fiction novel that has one foot planted firmly in the actions surrounding the attack on Pearl Harbor and the other around a present day investigation that could shed new light on those very events.

One stream in the novel follows Lt. Yokoyama, an elite Japanese naval officer hand-picked to be one of the Japanese empire’s secret midget submarine commanders who will attack the United States in 1941. Upon successfully delivering a crippling blow to the USS Oklahoma, he and his engineer are unable to make it back to their rendezvous point on the submarine from which they launched. They must put into action their contingency plan: slip ashore, meet up with Japanese/American sympathisers, and blend in with the surrounding population as would a chameleon. Lt. Yokoyama is given a new identity, a new job on the island, and a new family history. When the Japanese are gathered up and placed in internment camps, he is sure that he will have the power to motivate his fellow internees to rebel against the American guards and eventually make it back to his Emperor’s navy. However, Lt. Yokoyama quickly realises that there may not be as much animosity towards their incarcerators as he would hope. In fact, he soon finds himself at a crossroads that will challenge the balance between his previous loyalties and his adopted persona.

The second, concurrent stream in the novel follows Lieutenant Commander Christopher Pastwa and his team who are investigating a skeleton that was unearthed during a routine swimming pool construction. Alarm bells immediately ring in everyone’s head when the artifacts found with the skeleton appear to be of Japanese descent and tentatively date back to the Second World War. A notebook found with the artifacts is recovered, translated, and revealed to be that of a midget submarine commander in the Imperial Japanese Navy. The logbook describes his attack on Pearl Harbor and how he and his engineer slipped ashore. Although often hypothesized, the actions of midget submarine commanders during and after the December 7th attacks never had hard evidence to back them up. To make things worse, Lieutenant Commander Pastwa’s team is on a race against the clock to verify the authenticity of these documents and their potential implications, as the local media has caught wind of the investigation. Between the media’s pilfering of Top Secret documents from the investigation and the realisation that Lt. Yokoyama may still be alive, the team rushes to tie up all the loose ends. Admiral Reardon hates loose ends.

The cornerstone of an excellent historical fiction novel is research and it is extremely evident that Marcus A. Nannini has spent countless hours researching his subject. He has gone to painstaking depths to make as many elements of his story as real as possible and has done an amazing job. His descriptions of the training undergone by the submarine commanders, the attacks on Pearl Harbor, the landscapes of Hawaii, and the conflicts later on in the book are nothing short of exemplary. I loved how this book mixed elements from both the past and the present. Either of the storylines could have made an excellent book on their own, but together they add another dimension entirely. The mix of different characters in the present day timeline is also fantastic. There is a refreshing mix of hard-working naval officers, sleazy reporters, traitorous informants, and even a pudgy Petty Officer who lends a smidge of humor (not to mention a few donuts) to the plot. The thing I enjoyed the most about this book is how the concept of loyalty is addressed. In Lt. Yokoyama’s timeline, he has some tough decisions to make on where his loyalties lie. He needs to determine how to live his life during and after his time in the Japanese internment camps. In the modern timeline, the naval investigation team needs to decide whether their loyalty lies in doing the right thing or doing their job regardless of the consequences.

The only part of this book that I had issues with was the ending. There was a lot of build up toward the end of the book and I feel that some of the major conflicts which persisted throughout the novel were resolved a bit too quickly. To be clear, I liked how it ended, but I feel that it could have contained a bit more detail and depth for it to be realistic. As well, I felt that in the last couple of chapters Mr. Nannini was introducing new and irrelevant information to the story (new characters, conflict, etc.) I realise now that this is likely as a build up for future books with the same characters, but I found myself wondering how this fit into our current storyline.

I thoroughly enjoyed Chameleons by Marcus A. Nannini and therefore have no problem giving it 4 out of 4 stars. The quality and complexity of this book, along with how much I enjoyed the subject matter, swayed me from giving it a lower score. I would particularly recommend this book to anyone that has a soft-side for historical fiction, those that enjoy military history, or those that are interested in WWII/Pearl Harbour. If historical fiction really isn’t your cup-of-tea and you have no interest in books focused around military campaigns or investigations, this book won’t be for you. Mr. Nannini’s blend of real life events, a compelling modern day mystery, and vibrant characters has resulted in a first-class novel which could easily become a lasting gem in its genre.

Synopsis

Prince Karl longs to once more be plain Karl Wethers, Wyoming rancher. Instead, his sense of responsibility, nurtured as a cowboy and honed in the U.S. Army, won’t let him turn his back on King Jozef of Bariavak. But he has a plan. If he can pull it off

Then international media consultant Harmon Reed re-enters his life. The Army brat who liked to juggle lit sticks of dynamite is now a woman who could explode that dynamite in his face. He’s fully occupied with trying to keep her from knowing anything about the complications of his royal life, because he will never trust her again, despite the pull of a love long gone.

For Harmon, what started as a youthful summer fling ignited into a love that shook her to her core. Equally smitten, Karl saw something beyond her beauty and rebellious streak. Then Harmon broke it off – and broke Karl’s heart. They went their separate ways, but no matter how far apart they traveled, the embers of first love remained. And the slim hope of a second chance floated in the periphery.

Oh, yes, these two have a history. A history neither has forgotten … but can they forgive?

Not a Family Man
The Uncommon Love of a Cowboy and a City Girl

To Wyoming ranch foreman Tucker Gates, the only good owner for the Double Bar X was an absentee one. That's how it had been for ten years. And then came divorcee Jenny Peters. Bringing her two whining, spoiled kids and her city-bred fairy-tale views of life – and love – in the West.
Jenny wasn't going to let Tucker scare her away from the new life she wanted to build for herself and her kids. No matter that he could be as hard as the mountains around them. No matter that she found totally unexpected comfort from his rough strength.
But what next? Because Tucker Gates was a lot of things, but he was absolutely clear that he was not a family man.

Synopsis

Since the dawn of man our species has questioned its existence. All of us at one point in time have wondered whether or not we are alone in the Universe. The reality of the matter is that we are not. We are merely a pawn in the grand scheme of things. Humanity just so happens to be playing right into ancient lore dating back over three Universe Cycles. Each cycle lasts over a googolplex and only one species has survived each cycle thus far. Meaning we have three other species currently residing in our Universe. Those species (in order from oldest to youngest) are the Judex Sapiens, the Sagacians, and the Malentians.

Now the Judex Sapiens and the Sagacians work together. The Malentians, however, work towards annihilation. Their main goal is to destroy anything the other species has created, but have to be subtle about such ordeals. Lest they be caught in the act. So in order to retain obscurity the Malentians plant directives into their target's DNA. Directives of evil that slowly blossom over time and evolve into naught but one thing: self-annihilation on a grand scale. All of which occurs on a little blue sphere we like to call Earth.

Before the war that ends humanity's dominant reign over Earth times are tumultuous to say the least. With the fraudulent election of President Venalis Proditor (whose years in the senate have already eroded away a majority of America’s freedoms) the Union does not stand a chance. After his election a powder keg of chaos erupts in the torn nation and a rebellion forms to overthrow the US government. However, what the rebels fail to foresee is that Proditor has been in alliance with the corrupt United Nations. Who, in turn, combine forces with the NATO troops and stage a war on American soil. With the use of highly advanced nanobiotechnology the invading forces trigger the beginning of the end of humanity.

Techie Bombs are what is used to usher in the apocalypse and nearly end humanity's reign. For you see there are survivors of the attack. The Sagacians warn a select few humans of a barrier-inducing pendant in Yellowstone National Park that was put there in order to save humanity from the supervolcano hiding underneath it. But instead of saving humanity from a natural disaster the barrier saves them from naught but themselves.

The survivors flourish the first few years after the disaster. Although they are plagued with fear and anxiety the survivors find peace in the settlement they form around Fiddlers Lake in Lander, Wyoming. They effectively utilize the Wind River Ranges for their benefit and humanity begins to prosper once more. There is only one thing though. Evil always seems to manifest itself in the deepest recesses of the human mind. Such being due to the Malentians’ evil protocols that were instilled tens of thousands of years ago in the first hominins. So what was once peace and prosperity soon evolves into chaos and manipulation.

Two factions soon form out of the chaos. Those being The Order, whose sinister leaders control the populace with fear, and The Stigmata, whose leaders allow their followers to live freely and do as they please. The Order is left to sustain its ever-growing entropy at the settlement at Fiddlers Lake. Where they have naught but archaic tools and supplies to live on. Meanwhile The Stigmata flourishes inside a secret bunker hidden inside of Mount Chauvenet, which has all of the advanced technology mankind had acquired prior to the war. Needless to say one lives better than the other. A fact that shows after The Great Mutiny from Fiddlers Lake. An event where hundreds of survivors flee The Order to join The Stigmata.

Two decades later five adolescents have a yearning for more. Living their entire lives in the substandard conditions at Fiddlers Lake, they have a lust for adventure that cannot be satiated by mere hunting alone. So they, like the many others before them, defect from the settlement. Only to become the fabled Last Mutineers.
