Of Windmills and War by Diane Moody

An Amazon Top 100 Bestseller with 50,000 copies sold and over 600 “Five Star” reviews.The rumblings of war in distant countries mattered little to Danny McClain. Growing up in Chicago, his world revolved around after-school jobs, a rescued beagle, his pen pal in Holland, and the Cubs’ chance to go to the World Series. Then, in December of 1941, during his first year at Northwestern University, news of the attack on Pearl Harbor hit much too close to home. After a series of unexpected events over the next couple of years, Danny found himself in the co-pilot seat of a B-17, stationed with the 390th Bomb Group in Framlingham, England.Anya Versteeg had been just a teenager when Hitler’s troops invaded her homeland of Holland in May of 1940. Forced to grow up much too fast, the feisty preacher’s daughter eagerly immersed herself in the Dutch Resistance and its many efforts to thwart the enemy. Certain that God had turned His back on Holland, she closed her heart and did whatever she had to do to save her country before it was too late.By 1945, the people of Occupied Holland were starving. Cut off from the outside world in retaliation for their failed attempt to oust the Germans invaders, the Dutch had no food, no electricity, no fuel, and little hope of surviving. Thousands were dying every day. Then, just days before the war ended, help came to The Netherlands like manna from heaven.Operation Chowhound held special meaning for Lieutenant Danny McClain. Somewhere below in the battered land of tulips and windmills was the girl who needed rescuing–after rescuing so many others. And he would move heaven and earth to find her.

Chest of Souls: Epic Fantasy Series Book 1 by Michelle Erickson and Daekazu

A new series sure to please the pickiest fantasy readers.., August 12, 2011 By Readers Favorite “Book Reviews and Award Contest” (Hawesville, KY USA) – Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers Favorite

Michelle Erickson has created a new series sure to please the pickiest fantasy readers. In Chest of Souls Book 1, we meet nine year old Talon and the adventure begins . Talon and a young man named Nyk end up running for their lives. Talon meets Brenna, a beautiful six-year-old with power beyond the imagination. Talon and Brenna are the only hope to destroy Sogo. Together they would make a formidable team…if they could live long enough to develop their powers.

Michelle Erickson does exactly what all authors should do…begin the book with a dynamic, attention grabbing scene. However, she doesn’t stop there; she continues with one heart pounding scene after another. There are plenty monsters to fear and battle in Chest of Souls. Brenna was one of my favorite characters. Although only six years old, she already has self confidence and knows she belongs with Talon. This is the first book in a new series; I can hardly wait to see what our two heroes face in the next book.

From the back of the book:

Brenna doesn’t know that her mother is Hi-Sha of Eyes, or that her father was an assassin and he’s supposed to be dead. She doesn’t even know her pet is the Queen of all Shee’s. Brenna is safe because she is oblivious to all but Talon.

Talon felt safe until he met Brenna.
Once he is ordered to protect her, he’s had to fight monsters he never knew existed, run away from an assassin, and escape a forest full of carnivores. His father burned down their cottage and left him with people he just met and he isn’t sure who to trust.

Talon and Brenna are destined to bring down the wickedest city in the world. They’ve been hunted their entire lives by the very evil they must destroy. They don’t know that when they finally meet that evil, they may not win.

In the meantime the Chest of Souls waits to be powered and neither child can guess the price.

She seeks refuge in the last place anyone would think to look for her–the picturesque town of Jackson, Wyoming. The locals in this small community live by a different set of standards, as Rebecca discovers when she finds work on a horse ranch. For once in her life, she’s surrounded by genuine, respectable people–with one exception. Her arrogant new boss, Alec Westin, appears hell-bent on making her employment term as short as possible.

Suddenly he is no longer a tyrant, but a diligent man risking his entire livelihood to provide for his family. Moved by Alec’s fortitude and his father’s warmth, Rebecca finds herself increasingly drawn into their personal affairs–and to Alec.
