Petra: City of Stone (Lost Cities #1)
by T L Higley
B&H Books (September 15, 2010)


This author introduces historical readers to Ancient landmarks and events in her series in progress featuring the 7 wonders of the world. This book starts off a new series on lost cities. Though she’s only covered 3 of the 7 wonders so far the remaining four are yet to come. However I expect this new series will inject some variety into the mix and be a change of pace for both the author and her readers. Thanks to the author and publisher for a review copy.

Touchstone (September 7, 2010)


Readers first met Storm Syrell in The Gold of Kings as she is faced with the mystery of why her missing Grandfather was a target for someone from the underworld’s shadiest corners. After his death Storm must try and run the import company and auction house he founded. The Black Madonna finds Storm at the center of yet another mysterious storm. Thanks to Glassroad P R for a review copy. (ISBN#9781416556336, 336pp, $14.99)

A Hope Undaunted (Winds of Change #1)
by Julie Lessman
Revell (September 1, 2010)


One of my favorite authors cannot rest till the Saga of her beloved O’Connors has given each of the siblings in this boisterous clan their own starring role as they find their life long sweethearts and start new families soon to fill Marcy and Patrick’s cozy home with the echoes of past childhoods and those just beginning. This initial volume of Winds of Change is actually the story of the fourth O’Connor daughter. Subsequent books in this series will bring the O’Connor boys to center stage once their youngest sister has claimed her own starring role. The older three sisters have already delighted readers and caused a few gasps of horror and surprise in Lessman’s Daughters of Boston series. Thanks to Revell for a review copy and Julie for making sure I don’t miss a beat of her adventursome saga of the 2nd generation O’Connor’s finding their way in life and love. (ISBN#9780800734152, 512pp, $14.99)
