I hope to read several books this summer, but this one I recommend to your group. Here’s a brief description by Midwest Book Review. Enjoy!

“Author Alivia C. Tagliaferri became inspired to write Still the Monkey: What Happens to Warriors After War after she visited the Walter Reed Medical Center in the summer of 2003, and saw firsthand the casualties of the War on Terror. Her later interview with a former Marine and Vietnam Veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder helped cement her determination to express the devastating toll of war. Still the Monkey is a historical fiction novel about a Vietnam veteran plagued with pain and sickness, and his fateful meeting with an Iraq veteran who lost both his legs. For ten days inside the walls of Walter Reed’s Monologue House, the two of them begin a painful yet ultimately cathartic progression toward healing and learning to live again, one day at a time. A poignant and powerful novel, written out of the deepest respect and admiration for the men and women who put their lives on the line for the sake of their nation.”

I would love for your club to read my book, The First Chronicle of Zayashariya: Out of Night.

Order here:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/097997576X?ie=UTF8&tag=jestilonl-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=097997576X

Zayashariya abandons her birthright and escapes the planet Night on a spaceship destined for freedom. Once she flees, she unexpectedly arrives in the town of Wilzasp where she is blamed for the sudden rising death rate. The panic-stricken people seek to destroy her and she finds herself betwixt blood craving natives and demons chasing her through the realms. In the meantime, she is entangled within a concupiscent relationship with a prominent member of Wilzasp society and her love affair causes her to ponder the questions: Can a person truly change their nature? Can emotions blind reality? Is good and evil a distinctive definition or are there fine lines in which they blur into various shades of gray? Can love prevent you from seeing the inner demon in others? Is a spiritless world a realistic world?

The First Chronicle of Zayashariya: OUT OF NIGHT is a story of sorcery, slaughter, and struggle with self. “Out of Night” provides a spiritual twist that unites fantasy and science fiction with the battle with faith and the numinous world.
