Book Blurb | Fire of the Raging Dragon

                                                  About Book Blurb:
Helping you decide, through the use of honest reviews and free preview chapters, whether or not books are worth the financial investment of adding to your bookshelf. 

This book blurb has been made possible through the from which I received a complimentary copy of the book.

Fire of the Raging Dragon (Pacific Rim Series) by Don Brown takes a bit of wading through. This is because Mr Brown adds great detail to his story line, including maps, military technical terms, and little known historical facts. While some may find this distracting and taking away from the action, as a reader who enjoys history, I don't mind this style.

When reading this book, it took me to the possibility the US stands with China and time that passes and with it, political tensions that rise. While the UN is currently in place to keep such things from happening, Mr Brown reaches into the, "It could take place" potential, and that is intriguing to me.

This was a book the kept me engaged, though at times I was a bit lost with some of the jargon. Overall, I give it a 4 out of 5 rating.

Per the Book Sneeze site:
In Fire of the Raging Dragon---the second book in bestselling author Don Brown’s Pacific Rim Series---Stephanie Surber is stationed on board a submarine tender in the South China Sea when a naval war breaks out. After a gruesome discovery escalates America’s involvement, Stephanie’s father, U.S. President Douglas Surber, must choose to take a stand against evil … or save the life of his daughter.

While this is stated on the blog purpose page, it is also an important enough disclaimer for me to feel a need to place on this front page for first-time visitors.
I am a stay-at-home-wife and mother, busy with home educating my children, doing daycare, and preparing our church-turned-home to embrace special needs and terminally ill children in need of a forever family.
These "Hidden Valley Ministries" are my first and top priority.
While the passions that drive this blog are a close second, they are exactly that --- a second. And so, there may be periods of time where no new posts appear.
Rather than take your time to check in every day, the best way to be aware of when I do post, is to either subscribe by email, like the Facebook page, or subscribe via a reader of your choice. (Links found at the bottom of the page) These will notify you when a new post has made it's appearance. (NOTE: Facebook settings much be adjusted on Facebook for this to appear on your newsfeed.)
If the blog is quiet, it hasn't been abandoned. Instead,my first ministries have taken the time God allots me each day. I'll return as soon as I can, for I can't imagine a life without writing, sharing what God shows me in this Hidden Valley I dwell in, in order to encourage others, and of course, playing with photography and by doing so, share the beauty that is my life.
Thank you for visiting.
I pray you are blessed somehow, someway a a result of being here.
