"Children of Blood and Bone"

Ideas have consequences. Richard Leonard's tale of New America insightfully carries some of our unbiblical, politically correct doctrines out to their long-term ramifications. In doing so, the story challenges the notion that Christians won't have to deal with these consequences because the end of the world is near. This novel entertains, but also encourages Christians to live their lives for the glory of God and the welfare of future generations. --Mark C. Alvis, Pastor, Union Congregational Church, North Aurora, Illinois
Richard Leonard dares to step into the future and speculate about a New America, born from the throes of a godless society in his home country. What began as speculative fiction seems to mirror our modern times more with each new day. Romance, suspense and international intrigue will compel you to read to the last page. --Ann Knowles, Freelance Writer-Editor
