Counting Coup: The Odyssey Of Captain Tom Adams
Counting Coup: The Odyssey Of Captain Tom Adams
by Bob Stockton Rating: 0.0

The story of the way west in the early nineteenth century was often a tale of danger, death and unspeakable suffering. The early trappers and mountain men forged the trails westward for the pioneers that followed and became part of the legend of the American West. Of this hardy breed of early adventurers one name stands out above the rest: Kit Carson. Many stories of his bravery, often wildly exaggerated filled eastern bookshelves of the day.

How much of what was written was true and how much was fantasy? Cavalry officer Captain Tom Adams vowed to seek the truth behind the legend and along the way faced near shipwrecks, attempted assassinations, Indian massacres, murder, and torture in an odyssey that he never believed would have been possible.

Many have written novels about the lives and adventure of their ancestors but most are not retold directly by the ancestor himself. In the new novel Fighting Bob author Bob Stockton writes of the exciting life of his great-great-great grandfather, Commodore Robert F. Stockton.

Once described by western frontiersman Kit Carson as “the bravest of the brave,”
The Commodore’s achievements in the first half of the nineteenth century have, in his own opinion, been misinterpreted by history and his true story needs to be retold by someone with a sense of a life at sea. Under a bizarre set of circumstances the Commodore visits his descendant author and tasks him with writing the corrected history of ‘Fighting Bob’s’ many accomplishments.

“I have chosen you for this mission……”

Those words, spoken by the Commodore to his convalescing descendant begin an accounting of epic battles, duels, hand to hand fighting and military conquest covering the first half of the nineteenth century which redrew the map the map of the United States. As the Commodore’s tale unfolds the author, who was at first reluctant to embrace the task, becomes increasingly excited with the prospect of retelling the Commodore’s story in his - the Commodore’s - own words.

AOTEAROA: TIDES OF HEAVEN
The Night Fishermen
Jeff Williams
ISBN: 978-0-473-22062-4 (Kindle)

This is a beautifully woven epic of changing, violent times seen through the eyes of the hirama – the night fishermen – and their warrior tribe, the Toa people of Kawhia Harbour and Kapiti Island. Set in the early years of 19th century Aotearoa (New Zealand), this story cleverly pulls together a great variety of historical strands to create a deep and hauntingly spiritual tale.

Read it carefully, for what you will probably think is fiction, may be fact. What you swear is fact, is probably fiction. It is extremely hard to fathom which is which. It is, however, much more… you are quickly, and magically, drawn into this different world of courage, spirituality and wizardry, and that other ‘real’ dimension is complex, amazing and healing.

A gift of the ancestors, this spell-binding novel is an opening of the three sacred baskets of knowledge of the creator god Io, the return of one’s soul to the true history and spirit of the islands of the Double Sea. Somewhere in here is your story…

UNLEASHED
UNLEASHED
by Christina Hamlett Rating: 0.0

Since the 16th century, the Russians have had a secret weapon, an elite military brigade which strikes terror in the hearts of its enemies each time the moon is full. As the modern war in the Middle East continues to draw world criticism, American intelligence officer Lucy MacDonald and her aide, Captain David Armstrong, are sent to Moscow to engage Soviet assistance in wresting nuclear weapons from Islamic fundamentalists.

Lucy's forbidden attraction to Dmitri Volkov, charismatic leader of the Tsar's brigade, challenges her modern sensibilities against a backdrop of double-dealing terrorists, chauvinistic superiors, and a media that's literally out for blood. Compounding the unexplained presence of supernatural forces interfering with Allied maneuvers at the Pakistan borders is the legend that the brigade answers only to the man they recognize as their Tsar.

Lucy's endeavors to uncover the truth regarding the 1918 survival - and subsequent birth - of an unacknowledged Romanov heir put her in jeopardy at the hands of the brooding officer with whom she feels an inexplicable bond.
