The book portrays an interesting insight into the wars that were waged not only between invaders from across the sea but also between the native peoples of North America. … Continue reading “Captive” by Colleen French

I was drawn to this book by both the cover and the first line of the blurb. “He’s a husband, a killer, and the only man who can save the world…” I’d read earlier short stories by author Michelle Medhat and liked her writing style. “The Trusted” is unlike anything else I’d read by Medhat. A brilliant combination of terrorism, spies, and the supernatural, the … Continue reading The Trusted (The Trusted Thriller Series Book 1) By Michelle Medhat
