Retrograde: Some Principles Are Timeless (Federation Diplomat)

by E J Randolph

The cold steel of the assassin’s blade bites into her neck, and Kate Stevens, Federation diplomat, freezes. She has cured the king. Is that the problem? Or, does the knife wielder have something against the Federation? She needs allies and she needs them fast. Coups plots are springing up like mushrooms after a rain, and the lord chancellor wants her out of the way or dead. Illustrations.

If you like space opera with social and political themes, you’ll enjoy the Federation Diplomat series where the fate of planets rests upon the wit of a diplomat and her resourceful and sometimes buccaneering team. This book is the first, but each story stands on its own and is set on a different planet with new problems to solve.

A Syrian Boy: Based On a True Story, A Young Refugee and His Sister Travel from Syria to Germany escaping ISIS

by Zabi Saffi

***Please write a review – I’d Love to know what you think***

Gods, Kings and the Governments have clashed. One’s happiness is another’s blood. The lower class citizens are turned into slaves without them acknowledging it. The space between the poor and the rich is dramatically long, so long, that the gods cannot level the two groups. Religion, power and money is destroying the Earth as you read.

Damaged tanks, cars, fighter jets and buildings are all that can be seen. Adnan and his sister Yana never let go of each other’s hand knowing that they could be killed any second. Adnan looked to the left and saw fallen trees that were hit by some kind of bullet or bomb. A silent state with not a single bird flying. Dead, dry and abandoned.

This is the story of Adnan, a 13-year-old Syrian boy, that faces hell in his own country and is forced to escape the once beautiful village to him. His journey begins in Syria and ends in Germany. Adnan and his sister Yana go through so much pain during their journey that it breaks my heart writing their story!

Yorkshire reading club (Book Madz) review ” Out Standing book, the story line is amazing. There is so much we don’t know about the effect war has until you read this book! Thanks to Tom Jackson for recommending this book to our book club!)



JIM BRIDGER’S PROTÃ?GÃ?, MITCH BOYER; Guiding Our Frontier Army

by Ronald V Rockwell

This is a work of historical fiction about a real US Army guide on our frontier, Mitch Boyer aka Buoyer aka Bouyer. Mitch Boyer, one half Sioux and one half Caucasian, possessed unique talents as a result of his intelligence and his mixed-blood background. He utilized these talents, some God given, many learned, to become by 1876 one of the best known US Army guides on the frontier. There is much factual information available on Mitch but there are also great gaps in our day to day knowledge of him. The author has attempted to fill in these gaps with fictional accounts which, given his life’s experiences and the environment he lived in , make a very realistic portrayal of Boyer’s life along the North Platte, the Overland Trail, the Bozeman Trail, the Yellowstone Valley and the Little Bighorn River where he fell with Custer.

This, unexpectedly, brings into the ordeal, the man’s family, and Erik Trygg, a retired Canadian Special Opps soldier known for his ruthlessness, and identified by his enemies and some of his comrades by the tattoo on his arm: The Valknut.

“Are you going to try to capture either one of them?” she asked. Trygg had a short reply to that. “Never wound a rat…….KILL IT”

The Case of the Argent Gargoyle: A K.C. Kidd Mystery

by Jonathan Albin

The Case of the Argent Gargoyle: A K.C. Kidd Mystery

Ever felt like someone was watching you?

K.C. (yeah, it is okay to call him Casey) Kidd isn’t your regular Joe. It is 1949, the world wars have been over for a while, but Casey still hasn’t gotten his feet under him yet.

The Army was pretty good to him, but the return to civilian life left him cold. Unable to hold a job for too long – there just wasn’t enough excitement for the recipient of the Bronze Star, Silver Star, and two Purple Hearts – Kidd was a bit of a mess.

He smoked. A lot. He drank. A lot. But what kept him going, what made K.C. Kidd a going concern, was his ability to find things. In the war, it was land mines and explosive charges. Now, when he could find the work, he would findâ?¦ other things. And he was damned good at it.

So it wasn’t a bad thing when the woman walked into the bar. His bar. Simone Drinkwater, the kind of dame any flatfoot would love to go three rounds with. She had lost something, and she’d heard that Casey was the kind of man who wouldn’t let a woman like her slip by without fixing whatever problem she had. And Casey could tell she had at least two really big problems that needed handling. Personally.

The Case of the Argent Gargoyle includes:

  • A brief history of Golem Lore
  • The secrets of the lost treasure of Colom Bahr
  • How K. C. earned his Stripes in the War – World War II
  • And Much More

Once you pick up a K.C. Kidd novel, you’ll be hooked; everyone loves a hero, and none stand as tall, or hit as hard as Casey can.
Don’t wait another minute. Discover the secret of the Argent Gargoyle, and stop the Nazis before they reach for the Reich again.

Love Is For Tomorrow Redux

by Michael Karner

The Director’s Cut version of Love Is For Tomorrow – extra-length and a completely different storyline makes this a novel on its own and an exclusive entry into the spy-series.

On his way back from his last mission, Antoine Springer stops in his favourite city Istanbul to do what he loves best – chasing women. His personal mission is interrupted by a dubious bombing and he is thrown right back into the field. Antoine moonlights his services for the UNIT – an independent spy agency in the capital of spies, Vienna, Austria.
He is one of the undisclosed numbers of assets from over 30 nationalites covering missions on 6 continents that the UNIT’s mastermind has at her disposal. This current mission is special: the plans of two female spies could bring the world to the brink of world war three.
Antoine has been warned that his life style would lead to his fall. Ironically when the enemy’s plan becomes clear, he is already in too deep. The lesser of two evils would have him venture right into the lions den. Only white-knuckle car chases, a standoff with veteran special forces and the most daring airborne insertion the world has ever seen could stop the spies and their resourceful allies.
Outnumbered, outgunned and outmatched, Antoine is ultimately confronted with something even more bone chilling to him than an enemy bound to make a superpower fall – his past.

Karner raises the bar for the start of an edge-of-your-seat suspense series, combining european hot spots, suave humor and the glamour and decadency of the top 1% with modern warfare in this lavishly entertaining thriller.

El Juego de los Dioses (Spanish Edition)

by Javier González

Renzo Núñez; un conscripto de 19 años, es desembarcado a empujones en Puerto Argentino. Sin ser muy consciente de ello, acaba de recuperar las islas Malvinas.
En Nueva York, la célula de la CIA llamada “División América Latina”, analiza desesperadamente la situación y prepara los primeros borradores para Alexander Haig, Secretario de Estado que deberá mediar con Galtieri y la cancillería británica a fin de evitar la contienda.
Mientras los desacuerdos van y vienen, la flota británica mantiene un mismo rumbo: hacia Malvinas.
En el congreso británico estalla la lucha de poderes de cara a las elecciones. En Argentina más de lo mismo, a fin de evitar la caída de la Junta Militar.
La guerra ha estallado entre dos aliados de Estados Unidos. Ã?ste finalmente elige a quien apoyar, y Argentina debe perder lo más rápido posible. Para ello colocan todo el peso logístico sobre la maltrecha y poco financiada “División América Latina”.
Tim Dublin viaja a las islas con la identidad de un reportero de izquierdas, que ellos mismos secuestraron en el aeropuerto Kennedy. Desde allí informa para la CIA y los británicos.
El 4 de Mayo de 1982,vengando el hundimiento del Crucero Belgrano, los argentinos dan un giro de tuerca: hunden el destructor Sheffield usando el temible misil Exocet, y casi destruyen el portaaviones Hermes, donde los ingleses tienen montado el mando de operaciones.
Ambos contendientes han descubierto la efectividad de los Exocets. Así que mientras Argentina intenta comprarlos en el mercado negro, Inglaterra hace lo propio para impedírselo exigiendo a la menguada división de la CIA, que si no detienen la operación de compra, utilizarán los cohetes nucleares Trident que acaba de proveerles Estados Unidos con todas las consecuencias políticas
que significará; su objetivo, la provincia de Córdoba.
Pero las complicaciones aumentarán cuando los agentes de la División descubran quién financia la compra de los misiles Exocets.

“El Juego de los Dioses” traspasa el teatro de operaciones de una guerra convencional para introducirnos más allá del telón, y mostrarnos lo que hay detrás de la escena: la verdadera maquinaria que hace funcionar el trágico espectáculo de cualquier conflicto armado desde que el hombre aprendió el juego de los intereses creados, hasta nuestros días. Decidiendo el destino de los pueblos cuan pequeños dioses.
