That’s what I will be reading for April. The Star Wars novel is quite long, and Dark Prophecy is short and already halfway through it.
The Persian Gamble is the second novel of the Marcus Ryker series written by Joel Rosenberg, and it is the continuation of the saga.
Each of the three novels in the Ryker series is broken down into acts, The Kremlin Conspiracy was the first act, the Persian Gamble is the second act, and the Jerusalem Assassin is the third act, which I am in the process of reading now. The fourth novel, the Beirut Protocol in the series, was just recently released.
The Persian Gamble had a confusing second chapter that threw me, after reading about Ryker in the first chapter, but I stayed with the story, and it turned out the chapters second thru six were crucial.
Then in chapter eleven began Ryker’s storyline, and so did the action. The Russian and American governments are hunting Ryker and his friends after the assassination of Russian leaders. Ryker is figuring out how to convince the American President and other government officials to rescue him and his friends by offering information from preventing a world war.
Once I read chapter seven, the story started to fall into place, reeling me in; I was hooked. The story was a thrilling ride filled with drama, action, and adventure.
Throughout the novel, I kept wondering what was going to happen to Ryker and his friends. The last few chapters were spectacular, I felt like I was watching a movie in my mind, and the ending was superb.
I enjoyed reading the Persian Gamble was exciting and entertaining. If you are looking for an excellent Christian political-thriller, I recommend the Kremlin Conspiracy and the Persian Gamble.
The Kremlin Conspiracy is a well-written story with excellent characters with tons of action. I found the story gripping and entertaining, and Joel Rosenberg delivered an exciting novel.
The main character Marcus Ryker is a powerful and authentic character that moved the story forward. Ryker is introduced as a teenager, Rosenberg used the storyline to reveal Ryker’s character, creating a bond between Ryker and the reader on his journey to adulthood.
Oleg Stefanovich Kraskin is a supporting character who lives in Russia. He comes from a wealthy, influential family and his fiancé is the Russian President’s daughter. Oleg is the complete opposite of Ryker and stayed in the background and not wanting to cause trouble for him and his family. Oleg desires a promising future for Russia and wanting to start a family as he accepted the president’s aide position.
As the story unfolds, Ryker and Oleg’s lives became intriguing, and thrilling to read as their lives intertwined.
I loved how Rosenberg took his time to develop these characters, allowing the reader to connect and bond with them throughout the story.
The Kremlin Conspiracy was a fantastic and thrilling read. I kept wondering what was going to happen next.
If you are searching for a Christian political thriller, then The Kremlin Conspiracy is an excellent choice. The novel is available on kindle unlimited.
I have 100 pages in, and at times the story can be a little slow, but so far good story.
I am enjoying the story, and so far, it’s been an exciting ride.
I was in the mood for something different, so I chose to start reading this mystery novel about a K-9 Unit. I was pulled in by the powerful opening chapters. I’m looking forward to reading more about this K-9 unit.
Amazon had a recommendation for a novel for me. So, I checked out. It is:
Mark of the Raven by Morgan L. Busse.
The book cover was fascinating, the blurb hooked me, and the price was under a dollar. The reviews on Amazon and Goodreads are good with high ratings. So, I brought the novel. It is on my February’s reading list for there’s another book I want to finish.

Lynnette Eason is one of my favorite authors for she keeps me guessing and plants little clues in her stories. I always find myself wondering and pondering her stories when I am not reading them.
She is a Christian Suspense Author. Her stories are clean, free from foul language, and does not preach. She focuses on the characters in tough situations, relying on God to endure.
Classified Christmas Mission by Lynnette Eason is the fourth book in the series Wrangler’s Corner.
It delivered an excellent story. I was hooked from the beginning to the end and read it over Christmas.
Amber Starke had been on assignment for CIA when her friend was murdered; now, she is running for her life with her friend’s six-year-old son when the story opens. Did I mention the little boy is autistic? Amber has her hands full.
She returns to her hometown during a nasty snowstorm is shot at, resulting in a car crash. There she encounters Deputy Lance Goode.
Amber and Lance develop a romantic relationship by moving past their hurt and focusing on God getting through their dangerous journey.
Since this is book 4, there is no need to worry for Eason does a wonderful job of providing the back-story without bogging down the pace.
I am planning on reading more of this series. The series is worth checking out.
