The Lewis Family Vacation

Standard

 

ren-3-5

Ren Lewis is in a living hell. He’s on vacation with his family and girlfriend. Ren doesn’t do vacation. Anything and everything that can go wrong for him does so. It’s comical and sad at the same time.  Will Ren just survive or will he grow in character from the experience?

Noffke’s novella, Ren: The Monster’s Adventure (A Ren Novella, #3.5), is in response to overwhelming requests from Ren fans. And, boy, does Noffke deliver! Ren’s character has been evolving throughout this entire series. But, he has not lost his British snark.

This novella is a surprising departure from the other Ren novels. The entire focus is on the vacation and family away from the Institute or other dream travelers. It also sets the stage for book four. I can’t wait for it to be published.

5 out of 5 stars.

Unlikely Hero

Standard

sedition-cover

Matti Harrold, a midlevel NSA analyst, was as unlikely a hero as anyone. The vice president is dead after a long illness. Now, the president had died unexpectedly from an aneurysm before his selection for replacement vice president could be sworn in. A secret group wants to seize this opportunity to change the course of history and have their choice installed as the next president by any means possible. And, Matti has been tasked with investigating this group.

Abrahams first novel in A Political Conspiracy series, Sedition, is full of political intrigue. It’s a fast-paced thriller which brings into question the constitutionality of having the Speaker of the House as next in line for the presidency following behind the vice president. The story is well written and has several twists to keep your interest.

The battle between the vice president nominee and the Speaker for the presidency is fascinating from a historical perspective. The Speaker being a woman adds another dimension. Having a secret society stirring the pot only deepens the plot. I enjoyed this book and certainly look forward to the next in this series.

5 out of 5 stars.
