The Amen Heresy by W.H. Muhlenfeld is a great book.  Very insightful and gets you thinking.

Ex-Priest, Jack Fisher, is led to Jerusalem after he receives a strange package from his colleague Dr. Dvir Gottlieb.  Inside the package is a medallion with some sort of code on it.  Unsure of what it is that Gottlieb is trying to tell him,  he decides to make his way to Israel.

After arriving to Israel,  Jack becomes acquainted with a Palestinian boy, Sami,  that Gottlieb has prepared to meet Jack.  Sami then explains the meeting time and place of the code on the medallion,  which Sami has also received.  Together they try to decipher the rest of the code on both medallions,  unbeknown to them they are being watched from several angles.

Jack finds himself in a full blown mystery after a murder,  a kidnapping, the introduction to a "lioness" (Ariel) ,  and a beating to Sami.  In the fight to survive,  Jack must help Khalid,  a Neurotic Egyptian, find the missing Copper Scroll from the Dead Sea Scrolls. It seems Khalid has found the work and research of Dr. Dvir Gottlieb and Jack Fisher very intriguing,  only Gottlieb was onto something much more serious in his findings that he wasn't able to share with Jack as of yet.

Jack, Ariel, and Sami end up in Egypt trying to find the missing scrolls while trying to outwit their followers and stay alive.  Follow their story through Israel to Mt. Sinai.

Muhlenfeld proved his research in The Amen Heresy.  It was an informative read,  though a little slow getting into the action.  Once Muhlenfeld hit the excitement,  it held my attention wanting to know what happened next.  I especially loved Jack Fisher, who had so much turmoil in his own mind!  I give it ****(4)Stars, BK Walker-Author of "Near Suicide" and "Dares And Dreams".

Review by BK Walker:

Poison Reality by Nedyne Shorts-Nettles was definitely a different kind of book,  a flash forward novel.  This title has several characters,  all of which have some issue with their past and use it as the reason for their behavior they demonstrate today.  All the characters eventually tie into one another in some form,  while the story leads back and forth between characters. The plot was great with a great concept,  but the transitioning was pretty rocky. 

Many times while reading this title I found myself lost and having to go back to reread parts to figure out what I missed.  There was no indication of a character change which left me confused and going back many times as well.  There were some timeline discrepancies  and a little more research might have been beneficial.

Aside from that minor detail,  it was a good book and how the characters all tied together was excellent.  Nedyne Shorts-Nettles had a fantastic idea with her writing,  and maybe this book would have benefited more if it were written as one short story leading into another.

The Forest Portal by Melody Dempsey was a great read! The title is perfect for the plot within the pages.

Cam being the inventor type,  decides he is going to gather some seaweed and shells to try and concoct a serum to turn old wood to look brand new.

Much to his dismay,  what Cam actually invents is a glowing rainbow paint.  Disappointed with failure, Cam, Collette, and Taden take the paint to the woods, intending to make the trees more colorful.

When painting the trees in the woods,  he finds it doesn't glow like it did back at his house.  As Taden steps between two trees that were standing close together and both wearing Cam's paint,  the kids are stunned as the glowing neon colors surround Taden and he disappears.

After a few seconds of Cam and Collette standing in awe,  the colors reappear and Taden is back.

They discuss what happened and realize Cam didn't invent a serum to restore old wood,  but a serum that created a time portal.

Follow Cam, Collette, and Taden on their adventures through time travel.  Where they go into a time of the past,  meet ancestors all the while trying to maintain their secret.

Will they change the future by altering past events?  Find out in The Forest Portal.
