In his first book, The Power of One, Bryce Courtenay illustrates a tale of a small boy’s journey throughout Africa and his transformation from juvenescence into young adulthood during the era of African apartheid, loosely mirroring the life of the author himself. The book eventually went on to become a movie; however, many critics found the film far inferior...
When one thinks of Los Angeles, California, sunny beaches, multilingual communities, and burdening taxes probably come to mind. In the world of Legend, an apocalyptic fiction book by author Marie Lu, there is barely any of the sprawling metropolis left unaffected by natural disasters. The United States of America? Pffft. That’s been gone for years. In its place there are...
Exhaling through his nose, aiming through the scope of his rifle, Navy SEAL Chris Kyle pulled the trigger. The bullet leapt out of the rifle, screamed through the air, and directly hit its target: a woman. The women, a middle-aged Iraqi, had been attempting to set off a grenade and to blow herself up, taking many U.S. Marines along...

This “meticulously researched and beautifully...
Christopher Paolini took over 3 years to write Inheritance, the final book in the Eragon cycle, and Inheritance is most definitely worth the wait. For those not familiar with the four books, Paolini’s bestseller series records the tale of a young adult named Eragon as he struggles to overthrow Galbatorix, an evil tyrant who rules the fantasy word of Algaesia...
                Five seconds. Five seconds of machine-gun fire was all it took for the modern FBI to be created. The Kansas City Massacre of 1933, which at the time was the second deadliest murder of law-enforcement officers in American history, left four government officials bloodily murdered in a train station parking lot, sparking a shock wave felt all the...
