Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
The last days of March are here! It’s hard to believe the first quarter of the year is behind us and we’re moving into the second quarter. Unless things drastically change in the world, I will be traveling for a week or two (or more) each of the next three quarters. I can’t wait.
First I’ll be going to London. Next up is 3-ish weeks in Australia, then a little more than a week in Vegas and possibly other travel depending on what needs to be done and where. I am looking forward to a little bit of downtime (don’t worry, you’ll still hear from me) and catching up on my absolutely MASSIVE to-be-read pile.
I guarantee a couple of this week’s books have already been added to that pile. Check out this week’s books below and let me know what you think of them!
We’re hoping we can get a helping hand from all of our readers. If you have a few minutes, click the UPDATE SETTINGS button at the very bottom of this email and update the genres you read as well as any other information you want to add. If you take a screenshot and send it to me by April 25, 2022, you’ll be entered to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card. How cool is that? If you already sent it in, you should get a confirmation in the next day or two and many thanks to those who sent screenshots to me!
Enjoy and happy reading!

Keeper of the Water
My name is Jenna Solitaire and everything I thought I knew about myself, my family, and my future is wrong. My life is not my own. It never has been. I just didn’t know it―until now…
Having mastered the power of the Board of Air, Jenna travels to Jerusalem to find the Board of Water. She is accompanied by Simon Monk, who seeks the Boards on behalf of the Vatican.
Jenna doesn’t trust Simon, but he’s her only source of information about the Boards.
In Jerusalem, Jenna meets Saduj, a local guide who claims he can help them find the Board they seek. Simon is suspicious, but Jenna finds herself strangely attracted to Saduj.
Jenna must find the Board before it awakens and causes unimaginable destruction. But will she lose her heart—and possibly her life—in the process?
“An intriguing and trendy concept certain to appeal to teen readers.”—Booklist on Keeper of the Winds
“This compelling fantasy ends with a definite expectation of a sequel.”—School Library Journal on Keeper of the Winds
“Jenna Solitaire is an exciting new presence… Bring it on, Jenna!”—Nancy Holder, author of Queen of the Slayers and Pretty Little Devils, on Keeper of the Winds
“The first installment in the Daughter of Destiny series, this fast-paced book can easily be read in an afternoon. Jenna’s struggle to decide whom she can and cannot rely on will strike a chord with the reader, as will Jenna’s reluctant attraction to Simon, a mysterious stranger who claims that he is trying to help Jenna learn about the board. The author strikes a good balance between action sequences and moments of introspection on Jenna’s part….Recommended for all libraries with substantial teen fantasy collections. (4Q/4P/J/S)”—Voices of Youth Advocates
Who kicks off the battle? Cannon fodder. Soften up the enemy. The Metal Legion. Old mechs crewed by former prisoners with nowhere else to go. They bear the brunt of the pain.
But they don’t want to die. Never fight fair when fighting for your life. This is the motto of the Metal Legion. They fight to win.
The mechs stand tall, or crawl, or run, or scamper. A dozen different designs, held together by rough welds and sheer willpower. But the soldiers within, like Xi Bao who refuses to give up.
Taking her armor underground, she finds the enemy, in numbers far greater than she was told. Knee deep in the war, her crew gives their old mech new vigor for one last chance at glory.
Victory or death! Fight to survive.
Metal Legion – climb the ramp and come along for the ride. Fire the mains and enjoy the company of the crew as they live for each other, as they fight for all humanity. Join the Metal Legion today.
Thrust to the mercy of the Mississippi river, thirteen-year-old Rowdy floats safely away as he watches the smoke rise from his burning farmhouse. His father, dead. His brother, dead. Both gunned down in front of him by a murderous gang of bandits.
Now alone in the world, his perilous journey of survival begins, challenging and shaping him into the young man his father would want him to become. Pulled from the waters, he is given a chance by a lone river Captain and his mate. Working the trade routes between St. Louis and New Orleans, he learns to navigate safe passage. Rowdy has grown strong working the river but must use his wit as well as his strength to confront a bullying crewman and survive a surprise attack by river pirates.
Facing life and death decisions, Rowdy’s only option is to run. Survival is what Rowdy has come to know all too well. His escape across the plains towards Lincoln, New Mexico nearly claims his life. Through a stranger’s help, Rowdy recovers but is faced with questions about his rescuer’s motives.
Blood, bullets, and tears bring Rowdy’s world to a showdown. Fighting for what was right is his code, living life for others becomes his way, and staring danger in the face is what he must do if he can truly be Wild and Mean, Sharp and Keen.
“Rowdy’s vulnerability and forthrightness make his character relatable to people of all ages and backgrounds.” – Reader
In Honor Bound
In 1917, three law school graduates are on their way to register for the draft in World War I. En route to the recruiting office, they meet classmate J. Edgar Hoover, who invites them all to join him in the U.S. Department of Justice, thereby serving their country without facing death in the trenches. Two—Aloysius Gantt and Declan O’Hara—agree, while the third, Gregory Jordan, goes on to join the U.S. Marines.
On the home front, Gantt and O’Hara join in roundups of suspected draft dodgers and later, while Jordan is hospitalized for wounds suffered at Belleau Wood, they follow Hoover’s lead into the Palmer raids, deporting alleged alien radicals to Russia.
