CAST TWO SHADOWS: THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION IN THE SOUTH by Ann Rinaldi
Cast Two Shadows: The American Revolution in the South - Ann Rinaldi

Cast Two Shadows: The American Revolution in the South

Ann Rinaldi

Paperback, 304 pages
Published March 1st 2004 by HMH Books for Young Readers (first published October 1st 1998)
ISBN: 0152050779 (ISBN13: 9780152050771) 

 

I was browsing the shelves when I found this book. Usually, an author sticks with the big events of the American Revolution, but Rinaldi sets this book in the south.  Caroline, the main character, is 14 years old and sees how the war has separated her family's loyalty, as well as how it has affected her friends. The British have taken over her family's plantation; her father is thrown in jail for supporting the patriots; the brother is fighting for the British. She sees some horrors on both sides and learns some secrets about herself as well. At some points, the reading is a little dry. Overall, a good book, though, YA readers who like historical fiction.

New to me author and first in series.  Some reviewers say remniscient of Harry Dresden (I can take it or leave it when it comes to Dresden Files so we'll see).

Blood Kissed - Keri Arthur

Fits tonight's shelf call of Shifters.

 

I think I've only encountered this author in some anthologies and this is first in series.

 

If it diesn't grab me quick enough, I'll switch over to my next in series like Jane Yellowrock, Psy-Changeling, etc.  Lots of Shifters books on the TBR.

I didn’t recognize either face, so they probably wouldn't murder me.

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Grandma Frida yank the tarp off of Romeo. Romeo’s real name was M551 Sheridan. He was a light armored tank. He carried nine antitank Shillelagh missiles, and Grandma Frida kept him in perfect health.
