The more of Regina Doman's writings that I read, the more impressed I am with her as an author and as a storyteller. Her ability to draw the reader into a story and capture their attention is amazing. Her skill at wrapping morality and fairy tales together is incredible. G.K. Chesterton states: "Not only can fairy tales be enjoyed because they are moral but morality can be enjoyed because it puts us in fairy land, in a world at once of wonder and of war." I think if he were alive today he would enjoy these stories for their sense of wonder, morality and the representations of the war between light and darkness, and between good and evil.

This is a modern retelling of the fable of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves. It is set in and around Washington DC, and in south Virginia. It is the story of Alex O'Donnell and Kateri Kovach, two young Catholics, who are trying to figure out if their relationship has a future. Kateri has just graduated and needs to find a job. Alex needs to finish a few courses to finish his schooling. Kateri is an activist, farm girl, hard-working and early-rising girl. Alex is a modern samurai, a martial arts expert, gamer, computer guru (though not as much as his dad) and very laid back and easy going. Kateri comes to visit and meet the O'Donnells. But the O'Donnells have mysteriously come into some money and are trying to figure out how to take advantage of it, without actually using it. Soon they have bought a motel and enlisted Kateri as the assistant manager. Then they find themselves interviewed by the FBI, and entangled in a conspiracy with 40 Cyber criminals. That is when life really starts getting interesting.

The story has generous doses of family life, faith, hope, discernment and computer espionage. The technical aspects of the story are very solid.

In the mood for a thought-provoking adventure with Catholic morals? Grab this book and "Open Sesame!"

Since this is Regina Doman's fifth fairy tale novel, I knew when I opened "Alex O'Donnell and the 40 CyberThieves," that I was in for quite an adventure. I was in no way disappointed. From start to finish, "Alex O'Donnell" was an exciting read filled with vivid descriptions, quirky characters, and a fully-loaded plot.

Fans of Regina's previous novels will already be familiar with the two main characters, Kateri and Alex, and will enjoy how this book gives them front and center stage, plenty of room for character development, and adventures all their own. The story picks up momentum as you read and climaxes with a breathtaking, action-packed showdown.

Kateri, a level-headed hard-worker, wants an orderly life perfectly on track and true to her ideals, so she finds it perturbing that she is so attracted to Alex. He cannot possibly be the right guy for her, can he? In her mind, Alex is too carefree, irresponsible, and unrealistic. After all, his life is devoted to video-game playing, martial arts, and sword-fighting!

Nonetheless, uptight Kateri agrees to come for a visit to Alex's home in northern Virginia. Meanwhile, a mysterious check arrives for the O'Donnell family, seemingly out of the blue, for over one million dollars--some kind of "winnings" from a sweepstakes the family never knew they entered. (But Alex's computer-hacker dad knows more than he's telling.) Kateri meets the O'Donnells and finds an endearing family including two amusing younger brothers and a mom who doesn't let her multiple sclerosis get the best of her. Kateri does, however, have misgivings about Alex's dad.

Probably my least favorite of the fairy tale novels. Kateri and Alex were hard characters to like and I didn't like all the tech talk.

Another fairy tale from Regina Doman, based on Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, has arrived. A book with quick humor, a very fun security system, and exciting fights. Is also contains some good advice from some old characters that make a visit to this book.

By Elizabeth Yank on September 4, 2010
Format: Paperback
I "love" this book! In Alex O'Donnell we meet Kateri and Alex on a whole new level. While they were minor characters in Waking Rose, they are up front and center stage here. Is it a love story, crime thriller, or . . .? Alex loves Kateri. They have met and "dated" at college. But he wants to know her more. In fact, he wants to marry her. Kateri, on the other hand, is not so sure about this guy. After all, he sports long hair, an ear ring, and tattoos. This was not her vision of Romeo. To top it off, he is into gaming and martial arts. What did he ever do at college? She on the other hand, grew up on a farm and loved it. She has now finished college and wondering about her life ahead. Alex is on his summer break with another year to go. While they are trying to sort out their relationship, they become entangled in murder, mystery, and mayhem.

So, why is this book awesome? The characters are real. They are likable, trying to do the right thing, but limited by their faults. We understand the characters. Their inner thoughts are revealed. We don't have to wonder at their illogical moves or fall asleep because of them rambling on. The dialogue is realistic, not stiff or preachy. It makes the point and moves on.

Their relationship is normal. She has doubts and has to wrestle with them. He has to convince her he really cares about her. At the same time, she needs to learn to not take herself so seriously and enjoy life. Alex has something to offer her.

While the techno-thriller spices up the plot, there are many themes running throughout the book. What is truth? What is reality? What is a good conscience?
