The elite crew of the pirate ship UNS Flying Dutchman had a simple mission: determining whether the Thuranin are sending another starship to Earth. Along the way, they became sidetracked by securing a future for the UNEF troops on the planet Paradise. When asked whether Earth was now safe, their ancient alien AI responded "Not so much"...now they have to deal with the consequences.

After books 2 & 3 of this series I was a little skeptical of how the author would use Skippy as a perfect 'get out of jail free' card. This book relies less on the beer can and begins to humanize him as well. Good job!

Set in the pre-Christian world of Glome on the outskirts of Greek civilization, it is a tale of two princesses: the beautiful Psyche, who is loved by the god of love himself, and Orual, Psyche's unattractive and embittered older sister, who loves Psyche with a destructive possessiveness. Her frustration and jealousy over Psyche's fate sets Orual on the troubled path of self-discovery. Lewis's last work of fiction, this is often considered his best by critics.

C.S. Lewis definitely writes interesting stuff, but this was a bit much for me. Adapting a story from Greek mythology into a treatise on human nature apparently imposes upon the adaptation some weird implications and affectations.

In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea. Peace Child tells their unforgettable story of living among these headhunters and cannibals who valued treachery through fattening victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology.

This story is the best I have read for a good long while. I hope it can bring as much joy to your heart as it has mine.
