The Force ~ Review and a Book Lover's Giveaway

I don't know how many of you noticed my posts when the free kindle versions of mother/daughter author writing team Alexandra and Joyce Swann's books "The Fourth Kingdom" and "The Force" were available. I hope you took the opportunity to download them, but if not~ you have an opportunity to win them in this giveaway.

"The Fourth Kingdom" is an exciting read that incorporates sci-fi elements (With a focus on DNA) and some mystery, which while somewhat predictable was still a very good read. There are some curious goings-on at a "Cloning Farm" as well as at a mysterious research site in South America.

"The Force" continues to follow some of the main characters from the 1st book ~ with a much more fleshed out battle between good and evil. The "Thriller/Dystopian" elements take a front seat. Cloning, murder and a deeper evil created a gripping read that I had a hard time putting down. After I finished the book, the intensity of the story stayed with me for a few days~ the horrors that mankind is capable of thinking up juxtaposed with the overwhelming grace and power of God.

Here is the blurb from the publisher, to give you a little more information on the story:
A dark force is rising.... 
   Someone is murdering the world’s most beautiful women—over and over and over. 
   When Jarrod and Joshua Sinclair are called in to consult with the FBI about the Hollywood Starlet murders, they immediately suspect their old nemesis Josef Helmick of creating clones of famous women for a visiting Saudi prince. Wasting no time, they hire retired detective Fred Kowalski and send him to Dubai to uncover Josef’s base of operations and build a case against him for the murders. 
   But Fred soon discovers that Helmick is harboring a secret much darker than human trafficking. Fred must stop Josef before he resurrects an ancient, diabolical Force in order to bring the entire human race under his control.

If you'd like an inside peek at the writing of "The Force" you can visit Following In His Footsteps for her three part "Interview with an Author" series. The first in the series was particularly fascinating to me as the Swanns talk about homeschooling, their influences, and their writing methods.

If these books sound interesting to you, please continue reading to find out how you can enter to win them, as well as some other amazing books! I have either read the books, and/or have had some contact with all of the authors, with the exception of the William Struse books, so have personal experience with most of them.
