Monday Book Pick: Princess of Wands

April 27, 2009

Princess of Wands by John Ringo

A slightly different hero than the genre usally sees in this modern day horror/adventure tale by NY Times best selling author John Ringo.

Barbara Everett is a Christian soccer mom from the southeastern United States. Who just happens to an expert in martial arts and combat shooting.

This book is actually a collection of several stories, including one that takes place mostly at a SciFi/Fantasy con. A lot of industry inside baseball in that one, which makes it way cool.
