ANIMALS FROM AFRICA by Lysanne Olson
ABCs Animals from Africa (Animals of the World) - Lysanne Olson

Really nice book on African animals--one for each letter of the alphabet.  I learned a whole lot.  Some of the animals I had never heard of.  I also did not know so many were native only to Madagascar.  I liked learning one or two facts about each animal.  This is good for your 2-6 year old.  Very interesting without being overwhelming.

99¢ BOOK OF THE WEEK

 

The TRIUMVIRATE - Love for Power, Love of Power, the Power of Love.

 

A story about love and loyalty, politics and power, sacrifice and survival

taken from tomorrow’s headlines.

 

Till Oct. 6 at https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B003DS6LEU

 

 

When terrorists kill Shyloh’s mother, he dedicates his life to making a better world. He recruits his childhood friends Aiya and Judith. With their intimate bond, exceptional talents and singular determination they become a formidable team.

  

He chose them, nurtured them, advised them, and, in no small way, is responsible for who and what they've become.

 

Judith, the warrior and pragmatist who believes in law and order, is the commander of the new country's military.

 

Aiya, the theologian and advocate for justice and morality, is leader of the Cascadia's largest faith-based organization.

 

In the past, when dissension, disagreement, and at times hostility threatened to destroy their triumvirate, Shyloh, the idealist and politician, was able to harness the heat and energy generated from this polarity and craft a consensus, identify a goal, and create a process to get there. Together they’ve been responsible for Cascadia’s survival amid the chaos and carnage that accompanied the collapse of civilization.

 

But now, negotiating this dichotomy of will and passion is like being between two powerful magnets, crushed when as opposite poles they collide, and at risk of disintegrating when as similar ones they repulse each other.

 

The unraveling of civilization caused by climate change has brought unique challenges. For  each of them the goal has begun to take on different meaning. In the end, there can only be one better world, but whose will be best?

 

 

 

    ...a GREAT choice for a bookclub to read and discuss.

"This book traces Shyloh's efforts to make a better world of our present social, economic, and environmental crisis through creating a team of three unbiased leaders (The Triumvirate). The problems they address are real and will be known to the reader. They are today's headlines and, being unbiased, these three are revolutionaries in their own time. It is fast paced, a good story, and an easy read.
    - Clark Wilkins, Author of A Compelling Unknown Force

 

If you enjoy fiction/sci-fi, climate change and politics this could be a book for you.

I enjoyed the futuristic portrayals of Canada because of the connection with the many pressing social issues in our country's politics.

Touches on many divisive social issues of today (immigration, virus, climatechange, federal/provincial strain) and provides a unique perspective. The take on the Canadian confederation was particularly interesting to me because of the current issues in Alberta.

- Tom Urac, Author of Spartan Revolt

 

    "...unflinchingly stares down some of today's most contentious issues, whether they are of a socioeconomic, environmental, racial, or political nature.

"...sure to spark discussion amongst intellectuals and casual readers alike, ... highly recommend it as a selection for a reading group.
-- Jonathan Walter, Contributing author to THE DEVIL'S DOORBELL, GHOSTLIGHT, and DARK DOSSIER anthologies; and columnist for UXmatters Web magazine

Release Tour w/Review - The Austrian
 
Title: The Austrian
Series: Men of the World Series
Author: J.O Mantel
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: September 10, 2021
Cover Design: Dana Leah
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Twelve countries. Twelve men. Twelve million dollars!
 
The game of reality TV hasn’t been an easy road for former Hollywood A-Lister, Deacon Brady, but he’s playing to win.
 
This time in Salzburg, Austria ...
 
When a global pandemic forces the entire cast and crew into lockdown, things get complicated. For the first time in television history, Tainted Love goes live online, making the game interactive and oh so interesting.
 
Former Navel Officer, Fynn, is the next bachelor in a long line trying to capture Deacon’s heart. The catch— he’s never even heard of Deacon Brady, so Fynn doesn’t give a damn about the competition.
 
But what is Fynn really hiding?
 
Just when Deacon thought he’d seen and heard it all, the show’s producer, Dante, does what he does best, and drops yet another plot twist. It wouldn’t be good reality TV without a little drama ... or a lot!
 
Has Deacon Brady finally met his match?
 
The hills are alive - Salzburg, Austria.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Austrian (Men Of The World, #8)The Austrian by J.O. Mantel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book #8 in the Men Of The World series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading the series in order.

Deacon does not get a long with the latest bachelor, Flynn. The dislike appears to be mutual. Putting on a show in the middle of a Pandemic is one thing, a dating show is even worse that imagined.

Flynn does not see the point in trying to woo a bachelor who is obviously a player. When they both agree to not being interested in one another, it seems that acting will come into play. Then the dating takes an unexpected turn..........

This was a slow burn in every sense of the word. I felt like this story was too wordy, and the characters did not feel real to me for the first half of the book. Then it started to pick up and the so did the heat.

When terrorists kill Shyloh’s mother, he dedicates his life to making a better world. He recruits his childhood friends Aiya and Judith. With their intimate bond, exceptional talents and singular determination they become a formidable team as they grow to be leaders in their chosen fields of politics, religion and the military.

 

The unraveling of civilization caused by climate change brings unique challenges, and for each of them the goal begins to take on different meaning.

 

Whose better world will be best?

 

   

"This book traces Shyloh's efforts to make a better world of our present social, economic, and environmental crisis through creating a team of three unbiased leaders (The Triumvirate).

It is fast paced, a good story, and an easy read.

    This would be a GREAT choice for a bookclub to read and discuss. How can Shyloh relate to the world but not to his own neighbors? Why is Shyloh so helpless without women? Do the two women love him and, if so, why? Would not the two women have gone on to do the same things without him? And what about their politics? Are they right or wrong?"
