Book Excellence Award to “Into the Cauldron”

Book Excellence Award to “Into the Cauldron”

“Into the Cauldron” received its first award from the Book Excellence Literary contest !!!

1864. After four cruel years, the Civil War still raged without peace in sight. The Union Army’s manpower was stretched to its limits fighting on two fronts; one on the eastern battlefields against the Confederacy, the other to protect the Santa Fe Trail and western expansion of citizens from marauding Indian tribes and vicious Confederate guerrillas.

Jonah Gustafson’s family was dead, leaving him to aimlessly wander. Rather than wait for the coming draft, he joined the 3rd Wisconsin Volunteer Cavalry, expecting to be sent east into the war between the states. Instead, his regiment went west to ‘Bleeding’ Kansas and war-torn Missouri. There, along the Santa Fe Trail, they fought every major Indian tribe and Quantrill’s Raiders, a roaming, bloodthirsty guerrilla unit. Horrid weather and deplorable living conditions were the lonely troopers’ constant companions. Death always lurked near whether from disease, a bullet, or an arrow. But the cavalry of the frontier fulfilled its duties against all odds.

“Into the Cauldron” is the life of Trooper Jonah Gustafson based upon true events written in the pages of a Civil War diary by a Wisconsin cavalryman that served on the frontier. It is a novel to enjoy and learn from; one that will carry you back in time to feel the joys, heartaches and anguish of those days.

“The Daggerman”

Two men born under the same star on the same night are destined to lead intertwined, yet separate paths – one to save people, the other to kill them. Yeshua is destined to fulfill the prophecies of the Messiah to come, while Hanan fights his country’s Roman oppressors and a corrupt, ruling priesthood. This heavily political and treacherous era is steeped in the subjugation of a people that have fought for their freedom since ancient times.

 

“The Daggerman is well-researched and a pleasure to read.  As an added bonus, it throws interesting sidelights on the political and religious tensions surrounding Jesus’s ministry.”

Russia, 1926. Socialist and Communist leaders have terrorized their countrymen for years with secret police, forced labor camps, starvation and mass executions. Red Terror reigns as Russia’s daily life. Stalin’s desire for inhuman super soldiers fuels Dr. Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov’s obsession with creating a human-ape hybrid—but to horrific ends. When Yuri Grechiko, a member of the state secret police, falls in love with a human experiment from a labor camp, he risks all by fleeing with her to freedom on the Ural Mountains.

 

There, a boy and girl are born—neither fully human nor ape—experiments Ivanov never knew had succeeded. Vowing to keep it that way, Yuri hides the children from the crazed scientist and raises them as his own.

 

But Yuri’s past returns to haunt him. As Stalin’s secret police climb the mountains, Yuri’s world is shattered. From the horror of shocking experiments and devastating civil wars comes Micah, a gentle forest giant who seeks retribution. He will make the mountains tremble from his fury.
