Book Tour/Review: The Mountain Place of Knowledge by Marshall Chamberlain

The Sunday Salon.com

Welcome to the Sunday Salon! Today, I'm including the book tour by Pump Up Your Book Promotions and a review of Marshall Chamberlain's adventure/thriller,.



The Mountain Place of Knowledge

The Mountain Place of Knowledge takes place in Belize and involves the mystery of a Mayan mountain, a Mayan diary, and unusual hi-tech devices within the mountain which are coveted by different nations and groups. I read this as a sc-fi and fantasy thriller similar to the Raiders of the Lost Ark series. Set in the jungle and mountains, it has magical qualities with a hi-tech twist.

My comments: Those who like sci-fi adventures and paranormal thrillers lightened by some romance will enjoy the thriller, first in the Ancestor Series of books by Mr. Chamberlain, printed by Grace Publishing Group. I read this as an E-book, provided for the tour by the author; it's only the second online book I have ever reviewed. For me, E-books lack the personal quality of a paper book, but many people read them with ease, especially because of the convenience and speed of reading. Chamberlain's books are available in hardback, paperback, and Ebook form.

You can reach Marshall Chamberlain at author@gracepublishing.org  and information on the book and E-book at the link, The Mountain Place of Knowledge. His guest post is in the previous post, in which he describes the idea of his book in detail. Chamberlain has also written a sequel, The Ice Cap and the Rift and is working on his third book.
During the week I also reviewed the audio version of The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova, the book on Downs Syndrome, Making a Case for Life: A New Definition of Perfection by Stephanie Wincik, and Assassins of Athens by Jeffrey Siger. I also joined the Japanese Literature Challenge IV hosted by Dolce Bellezza.

This sounds like an interesting book with some neat twists.

Glad everything is well with you after the bad storms. Hopefully the rain will hold off and you can make the Rose Show.

Sounds wonderful! I'm always captivated by Belize, since my older brother did doctoral and post-doctoral studies there.

Thanks for stopping by my salon.

Sun Singer: That title is captivating - like something Faust would be tempted by:)

Laurel: What a coincidence! Would love to visit Belize and Mayan sites!

Mason: I'm planning on that rose show!

THis looks like something I should try. Haven't heard of it .. but sci-fi is something I enjoy once in a while.

Hope the weather calms down for you a little bit and that no-one else gets hurt.

We had a lot of storms over the weekend. Nothing too serious, thankfully.

Harvee said...

Jennifer, Suzanne, Aths, Carol, Cassandra, Yvonne - the worst is over and all is fine, although outlying areas had bad damage. Hope this bad weather is not going to be a trend for the coming months. Thanks for your words of support. Hope you have godd weather this summer!

Glad you're safe after the storm! It was pretty bad here for a while Sunday - high winds, heavy rain, downed trees and power lines. I don;t think I've ever read a novel set in Belize. Sounds interesting...
