Giver of Roses : the Guardians of Gadiel by Kathleen Morgan   Critically wounded, the royal heir of Gadiel fights to save his kingdom by trusting in the God of Lady Danae.

Take One  by  Karen Kingsbury   This is the first book in a quartet of books you won’t want to miss.    Two unknown producers struggle to fulfill their dreams to change lives through the power of film. With millions of investors’ dollars on the line, everything starts to fall apart and they realize they may be in over their heads. Is it possible to beat the odds and make a movie unlike anything ever done before? Or, will they lose everything in the process?   (Zondervan)


Dead heat by Joel C. Rosenberg    The stage is set for war. Oil prices are surging to record highs. A new dictator is rising in Iraq. China is threatening Taiwan. North Korean forces appear ready to strike south. Israel is feverishly trying to complete the Third Temple. And in the midst of a world ready to explode, American president James MacPherson’s second term is ending. Now as a fiercely contested presidential election campaign approaches, America faces its greatest threat ever . . . One from which it might not recover. From New York Times best-selling novelist Joel C. Rosenberg comes an explosive new political thriller addressing the question of what, if any, role the United States will play in the end times. This book is sure to provoke discussion and controversy, along with fervent hopes that this frightening vision of the future will not come true.  (Tyndale )


Shades of Morning : a novel by Marlo Schalesky   Book and coffee shop owner Marnie Wittier lives on the opposite end of the country from where she grew up; she needs that much distance from her past. But her past won’t stay away; her estranged sister, Rose, dies and Marnie is named guardian of Rose’s 15-year-old son, Emmit, who has Down syndrome. Schalesky leavens a story that could be sad with friendly, quirky touches: Marnie’s customers, her iguana Max. But Christy-award winning Schalesky (Beyond the Night) has a good feel for psychological complexity. And a reader won’t see the nice twist at the end coming until it hits like the California earthquake that opens the book.  ( PW )


The Malaccan Conspiracy  by  Don Brown   Brown, author of the Navy Justice Series and a former U.S. Navy lawyer, has written a book destined to top Christian fiction lists. A rogue Indonesian general and his army of terrorists attack oil tankers in the Strait of Malacca in order to profit from oil futures and buy nuclear weapons to establish an Islamic superpower. Navy JAG officers Zack Brewer and Diane Colcernian race against the odds and a 24-hour deadline before nuclear attacks hit the United States.  (PW)
