Raptor's Prey: Vietnam 1966-1967
G. K. Stesiak
Checkmate Productions, 2002
Through a Soldier Eyes
I have read books on the Vietnam Era but they have all been from the academic/political point of view. This is the first book that I have read that brought me down to ground level and allowed me to see the war through the eyes of those fighting it. Whether the war was right or wrong is irrelevent; these men answered their country's call, draft or not, and fought in what is quite arguably one of ...
GREAT! but obviously not as breath-taking as the first one
(rating: 4 stars and a half) Personnally, as a teen, i loved Noughts and Crosses. It's my favorite book to date and Checkmate really ended the trilogy on a good note. It was great, though i suggest to not read this one first and really start with the first one (Noughts and Crosses). I do think the whole trilogy really goes deep and the whole series makes an amazing gift for a teen (not for ...

Michael Crichton is back... but better!
I'm new to Kindle and eBooks in general, having just bought an iPhone, and this was one of the first I happened across. I've read every Michael Crichton book, as well as Michael Cordy, and I wasn't expecting such great things from this, but I needed to fill the time on a trip, so I gave it a shot. I'm really, really glad I did. I don't know if A.D. is male or female but he/she can write and ...

Checkmate (The Lymond Chronicles)
Michael Joseph Ltd
Conclusion to a series which is quite brilliant, but not for everyone
This is the sixth and last book in a series which you will either love or hate.

Adventure and love story that I could not put down
I could not put this book down till I finished, literally. I am very very pleased to find several m/m romances in a row that not only have a love story, but an interesting plot. This is sure one of them. It is an adventure! With swords fighting, assassins for hire which have honor and lovely romance. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be getting a paperback copy too (I bought it in e-book ...
The Phantom: Checkmate
All in One, One, for all!
Celebrating a fantastic run on the Phantom, Moonstone Books has released issues 21-25 of their running series. Having read the issues separately over their release, I loved the continuity WITH the covers included. Gentile and company set the bar high for anyone else who may do the Phantom for both cover art (that is NOT just poster fodder) but for selling what is in the book and high adventure ...

Competitive Chess for Kids: Winning Strategies Plus 25 Classic Checkmates from an International Grandmaster
Great introduction for kids
GM Seirawan is one of the best chess teachers/authors in the US today. His book is fun introduction to chess tactics and mates that captivates kids pretty easily. I used this book early on with my twin boys (at the time they were 6 years old and unrated) to supplement my own instruction to them. Now that they are 9 years old and rated 1770 and 1683, I find them still browsing back through the ...
How to Beat Your Dad at Chess (Gambit chess)
My Son is Reading the Book!
I purchased this book for the 9 year old son for Christmas. I am not a good judge of the content (since my chess skills are limited) but I can say that my son is reading the book and wants to play chess. My son is very picky about what he is interested in reading so I thought this book was a success from that point of view.

Great for children learning Chess
Several years ago, my son bought this book when he was in first grade. He loved it because he likes mazes. This book taught him how to move the pieces in Chess. He then went on to join his schools Chess Club, and got a lot of enjoyment from that. It is a great teaching tool for young Chess players. It is also great fun for children who like mazes and puzzles.

A great read!
This book is an easy-to-read mystery with plenty of humor and charm. The protagonist, R.A. Huber, is delightfully original, as are the many other characters found in "Reaching Checkmate." I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good, old-fashioned mystery.
