Hey all! I thought I'd start something new to go along with the new blog look. Every Thursday or Friday I will (hopefully) post next week's schedule and what I'm reading over the weekend. :-)
Schedule wise, I hope to have a wonderful writing post about plots on Monday. Then, I'll be posting a review of Elisha's Bones by Don Hoesel on Tuesday and on Thursday I'll be posting a review of Serpent of Moses also by Don Hoesel. That's all for next week!
To finish up, here's what I'm reading over the weekend. First up, I'll be finishing Elisha's Bones by Don Hoesel. Here's the book blurb:
Every year, professor
of antiquities Jack Hawthorne looks forward to the winter break as a
time to hide away from his responsibilities. Even if just for a week or
two. But this year, his plans are derailed when he's offered almost a
blank check from a man chasing a rumor. Billionaire Gordon Reese thinks
he knows where the bones of the prophet Elisha are--bones that in the
Old Testament brought the dead back to life. A born skeptic, Jack
doesn't think much of the assignment but he could use the money, so he
takes the first step on a chase for the legendary bones that will take
him to the very ends of the earth. But he's not alone. Joined with a
fiery colleague, Esperanza Habilla, they soon discover clues to a
shadowy organization whose long-held secrets have been protected . . .
at all costs. As their lives are threatened again and again, the real
race is to uncover the truth before those chasing them hunt them down.
The next and final book I'll be tackling this weekend is the sequel, Serpent of Moses, which is also by Don Hoesel. Here's the book blurb:
Just three years after
the recovery of Elisha's bones, Dr. Jack Hawthorne has given up teaching
and resumed the practice of archaeology, although his frequent absences
have put a strain on his relationship with Esperanza. Things heat up
when Esperanza receives a call from an antiquities dealer with troubling
news about Jack, and her fears are confirmed. Jack has gone to Libya in
search of another biblical artifact: the Nehushtan, the serpent staff
After Jack arrives in Libya, he soon discovers he isn't
the only one searching for the Nehushtan. Later, in attempting to steal
it, he finds himself in the hands of a man who just might be his match.
Jack and his friends must stay one step ahead of the Libyan government,
an overambitious member of the Vatican hierarchy, and an Egyptian
assassin--if they stand any chance of staying alive long enough to
recover the staff.
What are you reading or doing this weekend? :-)
