Trinity - Patrick Fox

I was so pleased when Foxy put his book on the shelf so I could tell you what an engaging read this is.

Once I picked up Trinity, my kindle became an extension of my arm. Charming, witty Ben Ryder comes across as one sexy dude. Though Patrick would probably have us believe it's him.  ;).

Trinity the cowboy, made me laugh out loud, which really is unusual for me. You have such a diverse set of characters thrown into romance, intrigue, fantasy, crime and a whole lot of fun, it really shouldn't work, but it does. I would recommend this book to anyone, though, don't read when your doing something important because you won't want to put it down.

I just learned Skip has passed. I wrote a blog interview on him when his book Keening Fire was published. May I present it here?

I think that would be lovely Biola and I will talk with the others about where we think the best place to file it on the shelves. ;)

The Keening - the Eye of Odin 
by R.D. (Skip) Slocum

If you like historical fiction with a mixture of fantasy and adventure, I dare say you'll enjoy this book. I can say without reservation that I did.

Skip's words carried me along with Matthew starting when he was a young boy right on through many trials and adventures, often wishing his father had lived long enough to help him with the things he had to face. 

There is no way for me to offer an over view of this book, it carries the reader from one challenging adventure to the next. But also has lighter sections showing some of the things most young boys/men encounter regardless of the year of his birth.

Read it, you'll not be sorry.
