The Dying Times: Nadene's Story

This book is a genuine masterpiece of this type of genre. Actually, it could fit into a number of different categories and styles of writing. I read a couple of chapters and then put the book down. I kept thinking about the story and decided to just read a little more. Well, I wound up reading the whole book. I found out that once you start reading this book you can not stop.

It starts in the year 2013 where we find the eastern portion of the United States is being attacked. Missiles carrying biological agents are falling and killing thousands of people. But then a strange thing happens. Some of the dead come back to life and begin to attack and kill people who were not effected by the bombs.

I found this story to be interesting,and it may hold a whisper of what may happen if some things do not change in our world. Everyone will have their own perceptions of the story and characters. I firmly believe that this book will be enjoyed by all who read it.

I loved the way the characters were developed and how they teamed up to go west, away from the horrific things that were happening to save their own lives.

This book was so good I found it hard to believe it was from a first time author. Do yourself a favor and buy the book. You won't be disappointed.

Rated PG 13 for violence

A Sister's Hope

A Sister’s Hope
Wanda E Brunstetter
Barbour Publishing, Inc
P.O. Box 719, Uhrichsville, OH 44683
297 pages

This is the last book of the “Sister’s of Holmes County” series. It is just as compeling as the first two books were. The attacks on the Hostettler family never seem to stop. The family never knows when the attacker will strike again. Roman's wife can no longer live in fear of what may happen. She withdrawls to some where in her mind where she finds peace. So it is decided the best thing for her is to be taken to another relative until the mystery can be solved.

Martha is the youngest of Roman and Judith Hostettler daughter's. She has feelings for a young man named Luke. Luke has feeling for her. The problem is Roman fired Luke for being late to often, and for wanting to try new things. Roman is suspicious that Luke may be the person who is doing the terrible things that are happening to his family.

Luke and Martha join forces to figure out who is responsible for all the attacks on the Hostettler family. Not only for Martha's family's sake. But also so Luke can clear his name and be allowed to court Martha.

The end of this book is as visceral as riding on a roller coaster.

Rated G
