This week’s F&F:
Bookselling Time: Go to your biggest bookcases. Go to the second shelf from the top and pick out the sixth book from the left. Hand sell that book to us – even if you haven’t read it or if you hated it. (if you don’t have bookcases, done have six books on one shelf, etc, pick a book at random)
Ok, my entire second shelf is full of paperbacks that I have loved too much to depart with!! Book #6 from the left happens to be Seven Deadly Wonders by Matthew Reilly. I cannot express how much I loved this book! It is packed with characters who capture your heart. Jack West is the leading man and he is yummy to the last bite of this trilogy. I have only two characters that I have said I would marry if they were real and Jack is one of them. He is smart, serious, deadly when he has to be, but he has a little girl he would lay down his life for if needed. It really is an amazing ride!! Another interesting tidbit: It is written from an Australian perspective and the US team are the bad guys. I found that somewhat intriguing and refreshing. Here is the official book description. If it doesn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what would…
AN ANCIENT SECRET . . . A TEAM OF HEROES . . . THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME
A legend of the ancient world decrees that every 4,500 years, a terrible solar event will wreak worldwide destruction . . . but whoever sets the Golden Capstone atop the Great Pyramid at Giza will avert disaster and gain the ultimate prize: a millennium of world dominance.
Now the Sun is turning once again and nation will battle nation to retrieve the missing Capstone . . . but a group of small nations, led by super-soldier Jack West Jr., bands together to prevent any one country from attaining this frightening power. Thus the greatest treasure hunt of all time begins — an adrenaline fueled race on a global battlefield.
From the Colossus of Rhodes to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon to the Great Egyptian Pyramid itself, unlock the thrills.
