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 for the first part of the Salon. The author's guest post was yesterday. Hope you check it out! The novel 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.
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.Last night we survived horrific storms with lightning and tornado sirens going off in the early evening and again at 3 a.m. Outside areas of the city were not so lucky and had house damages as well as two fatalities. Things are pretty calm everywhere right now while people try to pick up the pieces.
You can reach Marshall Chamberlain at firstname.lastname@example.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.
I might still be able to catch a local Rose Show today but more rain is due. Hopefully, nothing like last night!
How was your week?
