Monday Review by the Book Dragon: Gritty contemporary Christian romance

The Book Dragon has read Joy K. Massenburge's A Cry For Independence and gives it four claws!
My 4 star review: "Written with gritty honesty and gentle wisdom, this story took me to an unfamiliar place and helped me have greater compassion for others caught in unfortunate circumstances. The two main characters, Tammie and Q, have survived difficult childhoods, rejection by their fathers, prison, abuse, and all manner of terrible things. But the light of God shines as a beacon of hope for both of them, and the way the author brings them out of darkness is heartfelt and poignant. The supporting characters, especially Tammie's loving sister Tee, add much depth to this powerful story of redemption."

Monday Review by the Book Dragon: A beautifully written, poignant fantasy novella by one of my favorite authors

The Book Dragon has read The Nameless Soldier, a NEW fantasy novella in Annie Douglass Lima's Annals of Alasia series and gives it a resounding five claws!
My 5 star review: "Having read all of the other books in Ms. Lima's Annals of Alasia, I was excited to see there was a new story set in this world. The new POV character, 19 year old Tarvic, caught my attention right away in the gripping opening scene. His anguish and despair are palpable and make him extremely sympathetic. The other characters he meets along the way are wonderfully drawn, and the plot is full of surprises with many satisfying moments. It's almost impossible to put this story down! And near the end is one of the most beautiful lines of prose I've ever read which fits the title perfectly. This story brought tears to my eyes in more than one place. I highly recommend it, and it's not necessary to have read any of the previous books to enjoy the story. Of course, once you read it, you'll HAVE to revisit Alasia with the other wonderful books!"

The Nameless Soldier is only 99 cents for a limited time, so grab a copy today! And while you're doing so, check out all of Ms. Lima's other wonderful books. I can't say enough about what a wonderful writer and storyteller she is.
