In a world filled with alienated souls, a native-American teen strives to become the warrior his grandfather promised he should be; an Arab-American store-owner wonders where his true loyalties lie; and the powers that be wonder how to exercise authority, while failing to exercise care. As worlds collide, it’s a heady mix, and the life of a small Utah town might hang in the balance.

“Not all wars are fought with guns and bullets. Words can be powerful ammunition,” says the wise Indian grandfather

Okay so as author I guess giving myself 5 stars is cheating. But, reading this again after a long time away from it, I surprised myself with how well it kept my attention and how well I felt about it. I did find a couple of typos, which made me grimace after all the work that went into finding and eliminating them. I was reminded of what I had in mind when I started writing, who would be the main character, and how it all morphed as the story developed into something different with a different m ...more

I loved this because it is set in present day. Every part of the story is totally plausible. It keeps you wanting more.

So... who are the heroes that are going to stop them or give hand when the har

This book was given to me in a give away on here. The book was very interesting and gave the view points of each side whih was refreshing and new. Many times in books and movies the so called bad guys aren't really given a motive. They are just bad and do bad cause they are bad. By giving background for each of the charecters and giving insight to their thoughts and emotions the story is more than just good vs bad. Each person in the story is trying to reah a goal yet the choices to get there ar ...more

Mostly I write stories I think I'd like to read with characters that are interesting enough that readers want to find out what happens to them. I also spend time teaching and training at the karate dojo my wife and I founded, building a Japanese garden in the back yard, and taking walks in ...more
