Daughter of the high priest of Re, Asenath is a child when she first meets the Hebrew slave, Joseph. That night her lucid dreams begin as her heart and destiny are forever joined with the extraordinary man whom Elohim, the one true God, has chosen as part of his plan for the world's redemption. The untold story of Asenath's awakening to the divine truth through the power of love and dreams gives flesh, blood, and soul to the woman scripture merely names as Joseph's bride.

I loved this book! The story was biblically accurate, and gave insight and detail to Joseph’s life. The only downside to the book was that it ended. I wanted to know more of Joseph’s life after Asenath.

I would recommend this book to everyone.

Ryn Tyler didn't intend to kill a demon when she moved to Eagle Valley - or to become the hero of a divine race of angels. She just wants to be a normal teenager, but fate has other plans. While discovering the secrets of the supernatural, Ryn navigates a complicated relationship with Marek, the guy who can't stop saving her life. But Marek knows more about Ryn's magic than he's letting on. Only Ryn has the power to stop the coming apocalypse. But there's a demon in Eagle Valley who wants that power for himself - and if Ryn wants to survive, she'll have to fight back.

In 1917, Nicholas II, Tsar of Russia, was executed by revolutionaries. Now, in response to the collapse of the country's economy, the people have voted to instate a new Tsar, one who will be chosen from the descendents of Nicholas II. But a powerful group of Western businessmen want to make sure he is a candidate they can control, and hire African-American lawyer Miles Lord, with his knowledge of Russian language and history, to check the background of their chosen man.

I loved the story, even with some of the discrepancies. For instance, the bodies were burned in the woods, not buried in a muddy road. And the main character was an idiot. How could he not have figured out he was being betrayed sooner? The performance was wonderful, as always. Paul Michael is one of my favorites. He blends into the background, so to speak, in a way that enhances the experience without overshadowing the story.

In Hemlock Hollow, life isn't easy, but it is simple. Things in my community haven't changed much in over 300 years, since the time my Amish ancestors came to what is now the Green Republic. I milk my cow by hand, make fresh bread every morning, and hope to be courted by Jeremiah, a boy I've known since childhood. When my father falls ill, the English doctor says a hospital outside the wall can heal him. Jeremiah convinces me to go on rumspringa, to experience the outside world as an Englisher.

Brother Dust, a changeling born amidst a sandstorm, has seen it all before. He's watched as the heavy imperial boots have crushed dozens of planets. Watched as their drills pierce the core of a world, slowly killing it while the natives are kept docile, and compliant with the gifts and pleasures the empire brings them from the stars.

I was very confused. There wasn't enough explanation as to how Brother Dust came to be. I felt like I had been dropped into the middle of a story. I needed more background. I enjoyed the premise of the story, but I felt that the characters were not fleshed out well. They were not consistent.

Alone and friendless, the Wanderers, servants of Fate, maintain the balance between the supernatural world and mankind's. For millennia the Wanderers protected that balance - but now a renegade Wanderer arises to open the doors between the earth and our greatest nightmares. Years ago Fate scavenged Rafe from the battlefields of Vietnam, handing him over to a mentor he barely knew before the rogue Wanderer slaughtered him.

Archeologists Adam Chase and Lara Newton head an archeological dig in the mountainous, arid no-man's-land on the border of Turkey and Syria, sponsored by an eccentric billionaire recluse, Buckeye Calhoun, whose obsession is Biblical inerrancy. A hillman attached to the dig leads Adam and Lara to a stunning discovery in a remote cave: a hidden ancient fragment of the tablets shattered by Moses upon his first descent from Mount Sinai.

Denise Berg, a professor of psychology, and her molecular biologist husband, Gabe, expected an intelligent child. When Denise gave birth to Zack, they were thrilled. They were not surprised to find that Zack had physical and mental gifts but were astounded by their magnitude. By every parameter Zack was extraordinarily gifted, and they took pride in their genes and their good fortune.

The dialogue was extremely stilted due to the excessive and unnecessary amount of detail. The premise of the story was interesting but I struggled to get through it. I would be afraid to try anything else from this author.
