New giveaway! Now I'm giving away Blood Covenant by Lisa Harris!

To enter for a chance to win this book you must post a comment answering the following question. Do you enjoy reading books set outside of the USA? Do you have a favorite book where the setting is in another country? I'll go first. I love Tom Davis's books. One is titled Scared and it was set in Africa, and the other was Priceless that was set in Russia. Now it's your turn. I'll pick a winner using the Randomizer program next Sunday.

Blood Covenant

About the book:

When fighting erupts between government forces and renegade Ghost Soldiers deep within the Republic of Dhambizao, thousands are forced to leave their homes. Dr. Paige Ryan, who works with Volunteers of Hope International, is sent to lead a team to set up a refugee transit site---where the immediate needs for shelter, water, sanitation, and food are critical. Nick Gilbert, a bush pilot for Compassion Air, joins the team to help fly supplies in and out of the area. With the refugee camp already experiencing overcrowding, raids, and uprisings, a group of American mountain climbers is attacked by the Ghost Soldiers. Paige's medical team responds immediately, rescuing survivors and taking them into the camp. When it's discovered that one of the trekkers is carrying an infectious disease, the harrowing conditions of the camp are forgotten. In desperate need of vaccines and the Ghost Soldiers blocking the only road out until their demands for amnesty are met, it won't be long before the disease is out of control ... and there is nowhere to run.

My thoughts:

I had to switch the order of a few books around because the book scheduled wasn't releasing until June, so that said, I didn't get a chance to read this book yet. However, I will try to post a review soon. I didn't read the prior book but it's my understanding that they can be read as stand alone titles.

Not sure what is meant by Ghost Soldiers. Otherwise, sounds intriguing. I love books written outside the USA as much as in the USA. It gives me more of an idea of what the rest of the world is like. My mostest (I know, probably not a real word) favorite set of books is by Michael Phillips, Secret of the Rose series.
As long as Blood Covenant is not about real ghosts, add me to the drawing. Thanks for the chance to win.

I love reading books set in places that I might not get to visit.

NOEL HYND’S Midnight in Madrid (Spain and parts of Europe)

I also enjoy reading about other countries, especially ones I may never visit. I enjoyed Robin Jones Gunn's Sisterchick series where they visited different countries.

I would love to be entered into the giveaway. Thanks!

Oh, I love reading books from a different country setting.

I would choose a couple of series. Bodie Thoene's WWII series set in Germany, Austria, etc. And Michael Phillips Rose Series set in Europe during WWII. The Rose Series was great because he showed the spiritual battle within the actual war. Fabulously done!

Please enter me for Blood Covenant. Definitely a keeper.

I enjoyed reading your responses to Michelle's question. Regarding the Ghost Soldiers, there are no real ghosts in this series. This is the name for the rebel soldiers.

Happy Reading!

This sounds so good and is definitely on my wishlist! I love books set outside the USA - it's my way of traveling! I really loved The Russians series and Francine Rivers' Voice of the Lion series was amazing.

I love books outside the US, I especially love books that take place in Europe. Where there are castles, motes, and knights.
