The Serpent and the Eagle (Tenochtitlan Trilogy)

by Edward Rickford

Tenochtitlan, 1519. Motecuhzoma, leader of the Mexica Confederacy, rules over the largest domain in all of Mesoamerica and has every expectation that his nation will continue to reign supreme… but the arrival of strange foreigners will test that confidence. Driven by God, gold, and glory, the uncouth interlopers are led by Hernando Cortes and command weapons that can shake the sky. They hail from a faraway land called Spain, and they may have sinister designs. Their disruptive presence demands a response, and the choice Motecuhzoma must make could elevate his nation to new heights or cause its ruin. Combining the political intrigue of Hillary Mantel's Wolf Hall Series with the gripping battles of Conn Iggulden's Conqueror Series, this award-winning novel draws upon modern scholarship to recount an event still unique today: the epic collision of two civilizations separated for millennia.Editorial Reviews"The epic encounter of Aztecs and conquistadors has attracted—and tested—many a novelist. The challenge is one of staying believably true to the historical tale and its Mexican setting, while at the same time offering the reader some surprises. Rickford rises to that challenge with considerable aplomb, balancing evidence with imagination, research with flights of fiction. Fueled by a complex narrative tension and a deft deployment of detail, The Serpent and the Eagle is unpredictable in all the right ways." —Matthew Restall, Professor of Colonial Latin American history, Director of Latin American studies at Penn State, author of When Montezuma Met Cortés “A captivating, well-plotted, bicultural dramatization of the months prior to Motecuhzoma’s meeting with Cortés, deftly transporting the reader 500 years back into the eyes and intimate relationships of key participants—Mesoamerican and European, emperor and counselor, conqueror and slave.”—Andrew Rowen, author of Encounters Unforeseen: 1492 Retold“The story weaves a rich tapestry of Spanish conquistadors and native Mexica—commonly known as the Aztecs—as well as the neighboring native tribes, that transports readers to the lush jungles and grand cities of pre-Hispanic Mexico. The writing is clear and easy to read, with just enough Spanish and Nahuatl to add deep flavors without slowing the pace.” —Casey Robb, author of The Devil’s Grip “When two cultures collide, there are always multiple versions of history. A brave and expansive look into the bygone era of exploration by the Spaniards into Aztec lands. A thinking person’s novel. Fascinating!”—Chanticleer Reviews“The Serpent and the Eagle is expertly written and painstakingly researched…. Rickford has captured a fascinating historical moment and turned it into an absorbing story that makes the history come alive.” —Jim White, author of Borders in Paradise“The Serpent and the Eagle is another literary text that may offer the reader exits out of the colonial wound of indignity and entrances into the enunciative reclamation of silenced historical, social, and cultural spaces.”—C.T. Mexica, Ph. D, Arizona State University“Told through multiple points of view, Rickford’s words flow from the page like silk, engrossing the reader in insatiable Spanish hunger for gold and the anxiety Cortez’s conquest brings to the native Mexica.”—K.M. Pohlkamp, author of Apricots and WolfsbaneGrand Prize Winner in the 2018 Chaucer Book Awards and winner of the 2017 Best in Category Prize in the 2017 Chaucer Book Awards for historical fiction.**Map and glossary included with front matter**

The Gospel According to Todd

by R.A. Williams

Todd Heller is an arrogant ER physician who stubbornly denies the existence of God. A ministering angel forces him back in time to the harsh, primitive culture of ancient Palestine so he can witness the miracles of Jesus with his own eyes.

This novel is the sequel to The Class of 86, in which Jake Simon is the protagonist. Todd, the antagonist in The Class of 86, becomes the protagonist in The Gospel According to Todd.

When I started writing The Viper and the Urchin, I wanted to create something that I'd want to read. My top picks are usually novels that feature quirky characters with humour to them, anything steampunk or fantasy, and I do love a good mystery. The Viper and the Urchin is a great mix of all these things. It's a fun and easy read with a darker mystery threading throughout the story.Q - The setting is a little unusual for steampunk.A - Yes. One of the things I love about fantasy is being whisked away to a completely new and unknown world, and I wanted to recreate that feeling. So I've kept the aesthetic and technology of steampunk, but set my story in an exciting tropical world that's very different from what readers will have encountered before. My world is also at the start of its development of steam technology, so the city of Damsport is very much a mix of old and new.Q -Will there be more books in the series?A - Absolutely! I'm working on Book 2 now and I have a few more in the works.

Fiona: Book Two: The Cattleman's Daughter

by Danni Roan

Quiet, reserved and kind Fiona never puts herself in the middle of things at the Broken J Ranch, at least not until the larger than life Hank Ballard arrives. Suddenly she’s in the thick of it as the weary builder steps in to her life in a big way. Strangely drawn to his son, Fiona soon finds herself deeply attracted to the man himself.
Hank Ballard, worn down after trying to eke out a living in the big city while single handedly raising his small son, is shocked to discover that no one seemed to be expecting him at the one place he had been assured would be a safe haven for himself and his boy. Arriving early in the middle of a snow flurry he discovers that only one person seems to be willing or able to welcome him to the big ranch and Fiona’s kindness to both him and his son works its way in to his tired, world weary heart.
But will miscommunication, false expectations and a lack of understanding of the workings of the heart keep them apart?

A Room of My Own

by Ann Tatlock

Excellence in Media “Silver Angel Award”

Virginia, the young daughter of a wealthy doctor’s family, sees her life forever altered by the Great Depression. Forced to give up her own room so that relatives can move in, her resentment at those circumstances is altered as she helps her father, who spends his spare time giving medical attention to the people of “Soo City.” Soo City is a makeshift camp near the Soo Line tracks. But her father’s goodwill clashes with powerful people who wish the camp destroyed. The violent strike of workers in the grain mill district brings tragedy to the strikers, and the father is severely wounded while helping the people of Soo City as the police are clearing out the camp. What happens next will astound you!

“In this seamless and well-researched narrative, Tatlock provides a compelling look at the Depression through a child’s eyes. At the same time, she accurately conveys the exuberance, naïveté, humor and optimism typical of young teens.” --CBA Marketplace
