JOHNNY TREMAIN by Esther Forbes
Johnny Tremain - Esther Forbes,Lynd Ward
Johnny is apprenticed to a silversmith but is injured and unable to ply the silversmith trade.  He searches for a new trade but has problems finding something he likes.  He starts to deliver papers for a Whig printer and starts to deliver messages for the Sons of Liberty.
 
It's been a long time since I read this.  I am glad I re-read it.  Set during the Revolutionary War, it brings the lead-up and the early days of the war to life.  I liked Johnny and those who he came in contact with during his rides.  I like that he formed a friendship with Rab.  I had a clear picture of Johnny's thoughts and feelings.  Written during WWII, it is very idealistic.  It made me think if today's generation/society has the same idealism of freedom and liberty for all.

Prisoner of Night
Prisoner of Night - J.R. Ward

 
Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 16.5

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series

The Characters:

Ahmare:
Duran:
Female Shadow, Ahmare’s brother

The Story:

While the action and sexiness of this book was sufficient and I love the idea of learning about the citizens of Caldwell outside of the brothers I found myself drifting off and not caring several times. Maybe I just didn’t connect with them that well. I can’t even remember the names of the supporting characters or the bad guy. He was an excellent villain though. Really evil.


The Random Thoughts:

The SEAL’s Ward by Katie Knight , Leslie North
The SEAL’s Ward - Leslie North

 

 

He's out of his league. She's in over her head. Love will make people do some crazy things and her heart seems to be in danger of costing her more than she could have bargained on. For the love of a child two strangers will move heaven and earth to keep her safe. The Seal's Ward begins with a promise and ends with a family. There are some dangerous curves along the way, but the end result is worth the risk. Full of action, heat and heart.
