I have been touched by angels. Blessed. Seven simple words that changed my world forever. Now, forced to enroll at the Academy of Seraph, I soon realize that my enemies could be anywhere, including behind the very walls that are supposed to protect me. And, thanks to my hidden abilities, I know it’s only a matter of time before I’m forced into a war that I inherited but did not choose.
The Code Breaker
As far as twenty-year-old Jeremiah’s concerned, his life vanished seven years ago with the fevers that nearly killed him and wiped his memory. But with the illness came a strange new gift–the ability to hear the thoughts of others. Only when Jeremiah comes home from work to discover a dead KGB agent does he find himself fleeing the only life he knew. Trying to evade a past he cannot remember, his escape catapults him into a world involving covert military operations, missing Soviet-era explosives and a two-thousand-year-old prophecy that predicted his birth.
The Fortunate Ones
A story to break your heart – if you read only one book this year, make it The Fortunate Ones. Germany, 1941. When Inge – all blonde curls and good manners – first locks eyes with Felix, she knows instinctively that he’s off limits. Her staunchly proper parents will never approve of a working-class Jewish boy for their precious only daughter. But that doesn’t make their first, shy kiss less significant, or the moment they’re torn apart less shocking. The next time they see each other, it will be across the packed courtyard of a Nazi concentration camp – Felix in the prisoners’ ranks and Inge on the arm of her new, Nazi husband.
