It is the very worst time to be in the woods.

Oisin’s plan is to come with his bow to help Aedan and Doona lead a party of children into the forest to gather the maidenhair seedlings his people would take across the sea as they flee the trolls who hunt them as prey. Maybe he can be back in time for supper. And if he only dares to dream, he might also be back in time to speak with Doona alone.

Dyr's plan is an early evening head smash for the foolish Elves who think they can steal away to the sands of the endless eye sting water and build their strange float huts. They will make a glorious feast.

But on the way, Dyr's brutes stumble across Oisin's gathering party and attack, leaving Aedan mortally wounded and scattering Doona and the children to flee in terror into the dark mountain woods, only to be run down and captured by the bloodthirsty trolls.

Can Oisin find the bonfires of the trolls and rescue them before it’s too late? And what then? Will any of them live long enough to reach safety?

Ex-Chicago-cop Jake Samson is tired of the rat race. He's living in laid back Oakland, California with a couple of cats and just enough savings to eat canned oysters and accept collect calls from his bemused parents, when an old friend--a progressive political science processor--calls with an enticing offer. Seems the professor's wife was found dead in the backyard of their Berkeley home, and he wants to pay Jake ten thousand dollars (plus expenses) to figure out whodunit.

The police pick up the usual leads; jealousy, dirty politics, and an estate worth killing for. Naturally, since the professor is the dead woman's spouse, he's the primary suspect. Samson doesn't like the guy much, but the case heats up—quite literally—when the professor's office is set afire by a radical right wing activist group, of which, it turns out, the wife was a member.

With his good friend Rosie, and her justice-dispensing two-by-four, Samson follows a twisted trail leads through the Bay Area's bizarre cultural labyrinth; from pop meditation ashrams to neo-Nazi rallies, to the startling, but all too human truth.

The Loveliness of Terror by Rory Steele

Genre: Fiction
Links: Amazon US   UK   Canada   Australia

This is a novel about violent urban protest. Fifty years ago rioting and terror rocked Europe, nowhere more so than in Italy which suffered the ‘years of lead’ - a decade of incessant bombings, kidnappings and the murder of public figures. A massive crackdown ended the turmoil but the underlying social problems were never resolved. In recent times acts of terror, fuelled by jihadism, have targeted the West. In 2011 the peace of English cities and of one Norwegian island was shattered in ways that had not been imagined. Civil society remains under threat from within.

We revel in terror on our screens. The public craves catharsis. Where they can, onlookers gather at fatal road accidents or public executions. Art finds beauty in the violence that is part of everyday life.

This is a love story enmeshing three people, set in Italy - one of the most beautiful, wealthy and violent countries in the developed world. The problems it faces at home are far from unique. The novel contains a warning to all well-off societies.

Gemma and Tancredi, children of lawyers for the Red Brigades terrorists, take part in demonstrations against globalisation at a meeting of world leaders in Italy. They become friends with Zoe, an English student, and she goes with them for a weekend in Egypt, unaware of a plan hatched by Tancredi, who is waging a private war against pollution, to sabotage one of the Nile cruise ships. It is a fiasco and subsequently Tancredi’s interest in protest cools. Gemma, however, is drawn into Middle East issues by an Egyptian friend, Salim, and as a freelance journalist goes with him to Iraq.

On her return she leads a radical action group frustrated with government policies and political apathy in Italy who call themselves Luna. They start a campaign of urban protest with graffiti, leaflets and some harmless explosions. Zoe is not in it, but is sympathetic when she learns about Luna. Things start going wrong as the group steps up its activity and Gemma begins to rely increasingly on the fanatical Salim. Tancredi, already closer to Gemma than a brother should be, turns to Zoe whose English boyfriend has security connections and his own suspicions about Luna. In the beautiful locations of Liguria and Florence a crescendo is building towards disaster.

When a stranger arrives unannounced on her doorstep, and presents her with evidence that her daughter is alive, she is prepared to overlook his strange ramblings about being from the future. What she is less prepared for is the fact that she will soon come to believe him.

Drawn to the children through an inexplicable series of events and with his future hanging in the balance, Ben begins a journey that will ultimately unlock the tragic secrets of his own childhood, and finally reveal the source of his strange ability.

Jay Leicester (pronounced "Lester") is a retired airline pilot, retired because he could not stand the bureaucratic web the government spun over the aviation industry, and partly because anyone with the price of a bus ticket could fly on the airlines which resulted in overbooking, overcrowding, and near chaos on every route. Raised in a family of Judges and police officers, the only thing he knew to fall back on was the law. Opening his own private investigation business was a natural evolution, especially since he had trouble with authority, and could work outside the constraints of legalese. Handling mostly aviation related cases, recovery of stolen aircraft, investigating drug-hauling pilots, and helping set up corporate aviation departments kept him busy.

In Blind Overlook we find Leicester doing a favor for an attorney friend and taking a case far removed from aviation. It involves something he knows nothing about, the art world. A beautiful, but enigmatic young woman who owns an art gallery in New Orleans hires him to travel to Maine where a body has been found fitting the description of her brother and partner in the gallery. He has not been heard from and the young lady grows concerned as he was traveling with four hundred and fifty thousand dollars in cash with which to buy a collection of work by an artist named, Rockwell Kent.

Delving into this situation leads Leicester straight into a confrontation with the most powerful Mafia figure in the United States, a local detective, a police sergeant, local fishermen, and a friendly, but suspicious waitress at a local cafe. The entire populace of the small community seems involved in the murder, the missing brother and his money.

Though they are all so different, they react in much the same way: they bolt , rear, buck or turn tail and run when they think there's a threat. More than once when I've been left in the dust by a horse who's high tailed it away from a pheasant or squirrel they were sure was a wolf hiding in a bush, I've wondered what on earth they were thinking. Nadia, the main character of Headed for the Win, wonders the same thing about her mare, nicknamed Winny.

Main Characters:
Nadia Wells knows what she wants and horses are at the heart of it. Her hard work, determination and stubbornness are matched by her talented mare, Winny. It's not all blue ribbons and grand champions though. Nadia has to balance life as a working student competing with the beautiful, skilled Gretchen who seems bent on making Nadia miserable. Both girls have their eye on Mike too, a fellow farmhand who's a pleasant combination charming and handsome. Drama ensues, feuds explode, pains are uncovered and friendships are formed.

Setting:
A good portion of the book takes place in a barn or at the show grounds. Over the course of Nadia's final months in high school, Nadia visits everything from the grandest stables, rundown barns and beautiful countryside to the quiet seclusion of a stall. What's unique about Headed for the Win is experiencing it all from a horse's perspective. A lot of drama, life lessons and relationships are developed around the horses of Headed for the Win.

What makes this book a great read?
Though Headed for the Win is an equestrian novel, it isn't bogged down with unnecessary detail that would bore readers who are novice with horses. It's a quick, entertaining read with lots of twists that will keep readers engaged from chapter to chapter. I hope readers of varied backgrounds will enjoy the novel and take the time to let me know with a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads!

Petty thief Birdie Kaminsky has arrived in Liberty, Ohio to steal a treasure hidden since the Civil War. She’s in possession of a charming clue passed down in her family for generations: Liberty safeguards the cherished heart.

The beautiful thief wants to go straight. She secretly admires the clue’s author, freedwoman Justice Postell, who rose above the horrors of slavery to build a new life in Ohio. According to family lore, Justice left South Carolina at the dawn of the Civil War. Heavy with child, she carried untold riches on her journey north. As Birdie searches for the treasure, she begins to believe a questionable part of the story: a tale of love between Justice and Lucas Postell, the French plantation owner who was Birdie’s ancestor.

If the stories are true, Justice bore a child with Lucas. Some of those black relatives might still live in town. Birdie can’t help but wonder if she’s found one—Liberty’s feisty matriarch, Theodora Hendricks, who packs a pistol and heartwarming stories about Justice. Birdie doesn’t know that an investigative reporter who has arrived in town will trip her up—as will her conscience when she begins to wonder if it’s possible to start a new life with stolen riches. Yet with each new clue she unearths, Birdie begins to discover a family history more precious than gems, a tradition of love richer than she could imagine.
