The Secret Crown - Chris Kuzneski

The Secret Crown
Chris Kuzneski
copyright 2011 Chris Kuzneski
Published by the Penguin Group
For Release January 12, 2012

In a fast-paced, super action-packed story, Kuzneski gives us two men who are unstoppable. Think Dan Brown's Robert Langdon, Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt, Indiana Jones and Rambo all rolled into the two, and the possibilities for action, intrigue, mayhem and secret treasures are unfathomable!

I literally read this book in one sitting! I simply could not put it down.

I have one thing to say... Mr. Kuzneski, when does production for a movie begin? This book reads like a fantastic movie from start to finish!

Kuzneski has a way of drawing the reader into the action, until you can smell the gunpowder, the blood, touch the treasure and feel the adrenaline rush!

I give this book...

...Five Stars and... Thumbs Up!

At The Mercy of The Queen - Anne Clinard Barnhill

At The Mercy Of The Queen
Anne Clinard Barnhill
copyright 2011 Anne Clinard Barnhill
St. Martin's Press
ISBN 978-0-312-66213-4

Lady Margaret Shelton, known by family as Madge, was called upon to serve in the chambers of the Queen; her own cousin, Anne Boleyn, recently wed to King Henry VIII.

What started as an honor and a privilege few would ever know soon began to have consquences that might very well go beyond what Madge was willing to pay.

At a time of great unrest, Madge must choose between what is safe, what is honest, and pure, and serving her Queen. Even if that meant her life.

Ann Boleyn is portrayed here with amazing accuracy, although all occasions are fictitious. The story takes the reader right up to the last days of the lovely Queen Anne, and those who loved her best.

I give this book...

...Five Stars and... Thumbs Up!
