------------------------------------
FICTION

Nature Survival, War, and other Hardship

Lost Child (Volume Two) - Retribution in the Nantahala
This is written by the author of Winter Kill: War With China Has Already Begun which has been listed here before. This is the second book of two, apparently will be three (not exactly sure) about a child getting lost in the wilderness and the father’s journey to find her. The first (and apparently you do need to read it first) is Lost Child (Volume One) - Anguish in the Nantahala.

Touching the Clouds (Alaskan Skies Book #1): A Novel
Christian romance. From review: “…set in Alaska in 1935, and is filled with much historical detail of Alaska before it became a state. Kate Evans leaves her home in Washington State to follow her dream of becoming an Alaskan bush pilot. Kate is ‘an adventurous and independent young woman with a pioneering spirit. Not only does she have to battle the challenges of the Alaskan wilderness, but she has to stand up to male pilots.’”

Home Front
”A young and penniless boy - Johnny Madigan - lies about his age to become a Union Soldier. But after fighting his way through some of the most brutal conflicts of the American Civil War and surviving terrible wounds Johnny Madigan now faces an even deadlier battlefield. He must fight on the Home Front. Johnny has proved himself a skilled spy. His commanders send him back to to New York to penetrate an underground counterfeiting gang supplying forged US currency to the enemy South. As he infiltrates the deadly cabal of plotters, he is sent to Canada where a murderous Confederate spy ring is plotting an armed uprising to take over New York City and hold it hostage - and so win the War for the Confederacy. But in Canada, it is impossible for Johnny to tell which side is which….” Written by former NYPD officer and defense lawyer.

The Fallen Snow
Many high reviews. ”In the fall of 1918 infantry sniper Joshua Hunter saves an ambushed patrol in the Bois le PrĂȘtre forest of Lorraine . . . and then vanishes. Pulled from the rubble of an enemy bunker days later, he receives an award for valor and passage home to Hadley, a remote hamlet in Virginia’s western highlands. Reeling from war and influenza, Hadley could surely use a hero. Family and friends embrace him; an engagement is announced; a job is offered. Yet all is not what it seems. Joshua experiences panics and can’t recall the incident that crippled him. He guards a secret too, one that grips tight like the icy air above his father’s quarry. Over the course of a Virginia winter and an echoed season in war-torn France, The Fallen Snow reveals his wide-eyed journey to the front and his ragged path back. Along the way he finds companions – a youth mourning a lost brother, a nurse seeking a new life and Aiden, a bold sergeant escaping a vengeful father. While all of them touch Joshua, it is the strong yet nurturing Aiden who will awaken his heart, leaving him forever changed. Set within a besieged Appalachian forest during a time of tragedy, The Fallen Snow charts an extraordinary coming of age, exploring how damaged souls learn to heal, and dare to grow.”

Angel From Hell
”Out of the hell that was the Third Reich emerges the ghostly figure of Anna Fehrbach, the seventeen-year-old half-Austrian, half Irish-American girl, classically beautiful, programmed by her Nazi masters to be an utterly ruthless killer, and used by them to seduce and then destroy their enemies, in Europe, Russia, and the Americas. …”

There Comes a Season: Stories of War and Peace Volume 1
”There are consequences of war that remain hidden, buried deep within the minds and hearts of not only the soldiers, but those who wait for them, those who may be many miles removed from the front lines. In two volumes, There Comes a Season tells the stories of some of these people, such as the jaded newspaper reporter who is shaken to his core by the massacre of Lakota Indians at Wounded Knee in 1890; or the personal photographer of Adolf Hitler, who fears for his Jewish wife in 1930’s Germany; or the young man who faces being drafted to fight in Vietnam. Here, also, is the story of the WWII infantryman who returns to Anzio, Italy only a few years after the war to find out why he didn’t die there; the African-American Vietnam vet who returns to an America that has no use for him; the New York deli-store owner who feels threatened in the wake of “9-11,” and the man who is haunted by the memory of his brother, a U.S. Marine who committed suicide in Iraq. Yet, There Comes a Season remains hopeful that, through stories such as these, we may know that war is never the answer.”

The Story of Haybaler: A Saga of Generations
”the lives of the Stiles family in hill country Texas. The author portrays the drama of individual lives as they unfold on life's stage. There are many pearls of wisdom to be gained from chapter to chapter. In fact, the book can be seen as a string of pearls, which begins and ends on a piece of land called Acorn Ridge.”

Memories of the Curlew
”based on the life of Gwenllian, daughter of the King of Gwynedd, who became known as 'The Welsh Warrior Princess'. At her birth in 1096, the famous Druidic bard Meilyr predicted she would become a great leader of the Welsh. Married to the young Prince of Deheubarth, she supported his mission to build a new Welsh army, while raising a young family in the extreme conditions of life in the mountains. The military struggle was mirrored by personal conflicts, with Gwenllian emerging as a true Welsh heroine. Her story is one of passion, courage and honour, and gives a fascinationg insight into Welsh life at this turbulent time.”

Politics, Terrorism, and Intrigue/Conspiracy

The Wewelsburg Covenant
In 1944, the survival of Naziism is secretly arranged. In 2012, ‘A new superpower has appeared on the world map, with vast armies of genetically perfected Nazi warriors, a powerful fleet of submarines and nuclear weapons at its command….”

An Atlantean Triumvirate
”It is the mid 1930s. Having discovered Atlantis and long lost technology at the end of the 19th century, Britain waxed into an all powerful superpower dominating the seas and skies with mighty dreadnaughts capable of levelling entire armies. But something evil is abroad seeking to undermine the peaceful British Empire... John Murdoch, James Riley and Jane Archer criss cross the world, determined to restore stability and safeguard the British way of life.”

The Mormon Hacker
”Tanner Zane has a secret criminal past. Nobody suspects that, before his religious conversion, Tanner hacked into thousands of computer networks across the globe. He accumulated millions of dollars from his illegal activities until a sudden, life-changing event caused him to abandon hacking and give his fortune to charity. But Tanner’s guarded past is exposed when he is kidnapped by his mysterious neighbor and forced to hack into an impossible target – Los Alamos National Labs. Inside the government facility is a prototype quantum computer that is powerful enough to crack the digital safeguards of the Internet. When Tanner learns that cyber-terrorists will use the quantum computer to commit massive identify theft and corporate espionage around the world, he deliberately engages in an intellectual battle with his captors to prevent them from obtaining the device.”

Polonium and the Wolf
”Polonium; one of the deadliest substances on the planet. When a substantial quantity falls into the hands of a group of fanatics no one in the country is safe. Only one man knows who they are and can stop them but he’s following his own agenda. For he’s the biggest b****rd of them all...”

The Chosen One - The Mossad in Iran
Middle East nuclear weapons/threat of war thriller. 2015. “Special operations veteran DJ Markis finds armed invaders in his home and it all goes sideways. On the run from the shadowy Company, he turns to his brothers in arms to fight back. Soon he finds himself in possession of a secret that threatens the stability of the world, and becomes the leader of a conspiracy to change everything…a science-fiction military techno-thriller in the tradition of Crichton, Koontz and Heppner.”Reviews says: “'apocalypse' twist, though in more end of the world as we know it rather than end of the world.”

Watching People BurnWatching People Burn
”BASED ON TRUE EVENTS. The deadliest school massacre in U.S. history, its victims in grade school. A terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Three separate, coordinated bombings, culminating in a suicide car bomb that killed a public official and sent shrapnel into the crowd. This isn't fantasy. It all really happened... in rural Michigan, in 1927. This historical screenplay dissects the Bath school disaster. It explores the attacks' mysterious perpetrator, including the haunting final message he left for the police and the traumatic childhood that may have spurred his crimes. But the story also explores the myriad ways the attacks affected its victims, transformed a town, and reflected a moment of transition in American history.”

Collapse, Post-Apocalypse, Speculative Futures

DARKOUT
”DARKOUT - 1 In the year 2033 it blinked. Just like a light bulb going out. And eventually the sun did go out. Thirty years after the fact a small knot of survivors set out to widen thier very narrow, need we say very cold, horizons. The stated goal is knowledge, communication, and trade. No matter how small your "world" gets there is always somebody with a hidden agenda. And, it would seem, a few "critters" you didn't expect to run into.”

2060: On The Run (A Future Noir Thriller)
”In the overcrowded, noisy and sweltering streets of New York, in the year 2060, paranoia, fear and poverty are everywhere. An energy crisis paved the way for a new political party, which promised to solve the country’s problem. However, this administration quickly began enforcing dictatorial legislation that left anyone who opposed the government outcast from society; unable to get a job, cut off from the power and forced to survive on the streets. Unsurprisingly, this led to riots and the, eventual, emergence of underground rebel factions.”

Crimson Rain
“Several decades after a nuclear catastrophe rocked the globe only two bastions of civilization stand secure on the planet. Amongst the technology and the relative peace and serenity, though, lies a darkness that is kept anything but secret. The government allows the rich to victimize the poor and large corporations to kidnap people like guinea pigs for their experiments. Two corporations seek to overthrow the governments and reach for global domination. Meanwhile, three unlikely heroes are seeking change, each one for their own purpose. Can they stop the change that is to come before it is too late or will they fail, dooming the earth to slavery at the hands of these evil corporations?”

World, Incorporated
“World, Incorporated is one of five “supercorporations” which, having overthrown the world’s governments in the wake of decades of growing financial turmoil, spend their near-limitless resources competing with each other for global supremacy in the post-national society of 2058. … captivating action-thriller, a ‘1984" for the information age…’

The Day Detroit Went Dark
”Caught in the middle of a fatal car chase and drug fueled gun battle, Clive Bradshaw decides to call it quits, leave the city and live a simpler life with his wife Emily and young daughter Amy. Emily drops him off at the foot of Detroit on his last day of work. Clive steps out of the car and into a city on the verge of collapse, rife with corruption, no city services, overworked and underpaid police and fire departments manned by skeleton crews, fighting a hopeless battle against brazen, uncontrolled crime. …then the pulses hit… Everything that produces or relies on electricity is destroyed. The electrical grid, vehicles, aircraft control systems, machinery, communications, computers, refrigeration, water pumping stations, all the systems that support everyday life, gone in an instant. Nothing gets into the city and street gangs rule supreme. Chaos reigns, but it’s all overshadowed by an outbreak of a deadly disease, bubonic plague. The disease threatens not only Detroit but the entire country. The plague must be contained…at all costs. Follow Clive as he struggles to survive, find Emily and Amy and avoid the plague in The Day Detroit Went Dark.”

ACROSS THE GREAT DIVIDE, love and hope in the End Times.
”They believe in God and live on a farm well away from the violence beginning to take over the city. Mary and Tony are also fortunate to be living in a country free from the major disasters and wars many nations are now facing. Now as the prophesied End Times have begun, will love and simple trust enable them to survive the deception, lawlessness and cold-heartedness of the society around them? …As the age-long battle between good and evil intensifies and the Antichrist prepares to step out of the shadows, the ultimate destiny of every human being will be decided. The world won't end in nuclear war or catastrophic climate change; the final conclusion of human history will be far more dramatic. This novel also contains a short study guide of the End Times.”

Above with Sci-Fi or Fantasy Elements

Dimensional Shift: First Step
”A catastrophic infection of land based plant life motivates a wealthy investor and his colleagues to make the ultimate push for survival. He, his daughter, and a brilliant young team of scientists do the unthinkable. They take the first step off planet Earth. The story is a fresh look at science fiction set in the very near future. Stone creates unique technologies, an alternative history, and a weaves together a compelling number of disassociated threads to craft a very readable dystopian saga.” The first of The Dimensional Shift Trilogy: First Step, Dimensional Shift: Waters of Babylon, Dimensional Shift: Millenarians

Rogue Command (The Kalahari Series)
”The story begins with a catastrophe for mankind – the result of an unexpected, unprecedented and obscene criminal conspiracy. For governments and scientific authorities who have knowledge of the event – for it plays out on a distant moon in our solar system – the repercussions are immense. …” see link for plot.

REDUCTIONS
Dark Road (The Dark Grid Series)
“Dark Road, sequel to Dark Grid: When the Lights Go Out, Permanently, picks up just a few weeks after the end of Dark Grid. A disastrous solar storm has knocked out power grids throughout the northern hemisphere, and life as we know it in America will never be the same. The Taylor family, Eric, Karen, Chuck, and Sherri were able to evacuate from their neighborhood in Nashville, Tennessee before society collapsed, and join with the Tennessee National Guard to begin building a successful and thriving community in Natchez Trace--called Promised Land. First Sergeant Mallory Jensen was promoted to Major, thanks to orders from higher authority codenamed ARCLiTE... Dark Road follows the family of Dan and Marissa Clark. Increasingly desperate under the despotic rule of the HOA leader, Carey, wary of the rapidly increasing threat from contagious disease, and slowly but surely starving to death; what will happen when a family with two young children, and a better destination in mind, decides to undertake a journey outside the purported safety of their patrolled neighborhood--only to discover that it's patrolled to keep neighbors in, as well as marauders out? The community at Promised Land continues to grow--holding elections, annexing a town, and even celebrating their first wedding. But when Mallory reaches out to other military camps in the region, she discovers that ARCLiTE--and the forces behind it--may not be at all what they claimed to be...and suddenly everything is up in the air.

The Librarian (Book One: Little Boy Lost)
Youth. ”The troubled teen thinks he's found a way to escape his real-world problems when he stumbles upon strange doorways in Astoria's local library that seem to lead into the extraordinary worlds from all his favorite books. Oz, Neverland, Wonderland -- they're all a reality with Wesley's new discovery. Wesley teams with best friend Taylor Williams to embark on a great adventure, both ready to leave the drama of middle school behind. But the two kids quickly find themselves embroiled in a centuries-old battle for the library and the magic hiding within. Now, fighting alongside the eccentric old man who's vowed to protect the building's power, the pair must help ward off an attack by a shadowy group with a strange tie to Wesley's nemesis, forcing Wesley to face the fears he's been dodging... and one of the most terrifying bullies of all time!”

AND
The Librarian (Book Two: Unhappily Ever After)
”Today they've learned their actions have had grave consequences. Not only did they alter the Oz mythos, but their deeds may have had unexplained repercussions in the real world as well. Taylor's returned home to find she's living a life that isn't her own. Nothing's as she left it. Her normally warm father has become cold and distant. Her grades have fallen overnight. Teachers who once saw her as their favorite student, now consider her their most problematic pupil. Only Wesley remembers Taylor as she truly is, and together, he and Tay return to Oz hoping they can undo the damage and restore both worlds to the way they were. But the children quickly find they're in way over their heads. Not only has the Wicked Witch taken control of Oz, but Douglas Stanford has stayed behind to build a small army of storybook villains to help him obtain the magic hidden within Astoria's library. The librarian's returned to stop him, but the old man may need the children's help as the fate of every known world hangs in the balance.”

All kids have to do is answer questions about the books they’re currently reading! “

Can I Keep It?
”Hilarity ensues when a young boy finds wild animals in the strangest places. He asks his mom if he can keep them, but she always has a good reason why they wouldn’t fit in. Will he ever get to keep any of them? Find out in this laugh-out-loud rhyming adventure with endearing illustrations by Shaun Potts.”
