Book Tour: The Sky Throne

The Sky Throne - Chris Ledbetter

Chris Ledbetter is a new author to me. His storytelling is nice and well written. I enjoyed his book “The Sky Throne” a fantasy and mythology book. It tells a story about a young Zeus and somewhat of how he comes to be a Geek God.

 

Will Zeus and his classmates find out what they are to do? The adventures they take are thrilling. Don is short for “Poseidon”. Is this book to tell the story of ancient Greek or is it more geared towards Modern? You will have to read the book to find out for yourself and decide. Though the story of young Zeus is about ancient Greek and becoming Greek God.

Halloween Bingo 2017 - Book

 I may have figure out a bit for my first read and its one that I am read at the moment. Mattie's Pledge. I believe I can use this one for my Romantic suspense square.

 

It has romance and takes time to develop and it also has 3 brothers that are being creepy as well. One is chasing done this girl and this same girl is having romance troubles. Am I hoping this book works?

Book Tour: More Than a Soldier

More Than a Soldier: One Army Ranger's Daring Escape From the Nazis - Steve DiMarco, D.M. Annechino

More than a Soldier is a really good book about a soldier and his journey to survive. We meet Angelo first in a train car, with a few of his buddies and comrades. The story then goes back to when he signs up and what his family life is like. Will he make back to his battalion?

 

We get to follow Angelo and struggles through the military. We see how the Germans treat their prisoners and how rough life was behind enemy lines. The Germans are taking their prisoner through some extreme things.

 

The author did a wonderfully great job. With this being more of a Nonfiction book, It really told the story on each and every page. It was well written. Does the 1st Battalion survive or is Angelo the only survivor? You will want to read the book. You do get a somewhat of a tour of Italy.
