Book Description

In Vijaya Schartz' "Checkmate" published by "Books We Love, to quench his vengeful lust for the Archangel who scattered his remains at the edge of the universe, the Reptilian ruler orders the sacrificial death of Michael's teenage daughter. Half human and a full fledged Archangel on his father's home world, Michael must return to Earth to save his daughter from fiendish claws, and his native planet from enslavement or worse... But the way home is fraught with dangers, some more insidious than others. Nothing prepared Michael for the kind of trial he must face, when his rambunctious past catches up with him at the worst possible time...

"Sword-and-shield adventure... aliens and angels and dreams truer than life and depraved shapeshifters and evil sorcerers and parallel universes... Funny and sad and very intelligent." --The Book Reader Magazine

"...charm that keeps you reading... A fun piece of escapism... hours of sheer entertainment." --Rapport Magazine

"You will be hooked... a good read from start to finish." --Alan Caruba - BookViews

"Rollicks right along at a good clip... a fun concoction and a fast, zippy read... Really, this one is among the most pleasurable." --Writer's Digest

5.0 out of 5 stars Book #2 is even more excellent October 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Book 1 and Book 2 was even better. The author has a knack for bringing events into full circle with lots of action, twists and turns. I could not predict what was going to happen next. My boss read both books as well and enjoyed them too. He was wanting to tell me about it before I read it but I wouldn't let him. It's a book for both genders. The characters came to life for me and I didn't want it to end. I will be reading more of her books for sure.
