There has been a lot of talk about holiday shortages and people not getting what they ordered due to the shipping crisis. One thing that is easily available and a great gift....a BOOK!
Author Phyllis Cherry follows up her debut novel about angels and a little girl who earns her wings. MYSTERY AT CAMP ESTHER is a wonderfully delightful, action packed story sure to entice fans of Hatchet. MYSTERY AT CAMP ESTHER features danger as Halo has to find out who is targeting a family and why. Thankfully she has some heavenly help.
Halo’s life changed the day she flew up to study with the angel academy. Now she has wings of her own, and so does Midas, the big golden dog and her best friend. They are ready for their first real mission--a dangerous one that could cost them everything.
Arriving at Camp Esther, Halo and Midas become the target of a killer after helping an injured man. But they are determined to fulfill their mission, even if they are not sure what it is. Could it be helping Marie, a lonely teenager confined to a wheelchair?
Marie’s dreams often come true and foreshadow the danger surrounding Halo and Midas. Things are further complicated when Halo questions the sincerity of Marie’s new crush. Could he be the person who hurt Midas? Halo doesn’t know who to trust.
At the camp, accidents, sabotage, and death threats happen, and everything points to the new girl and her dog. Someone wants them to fail their mission and will kill to get rid of Halo and Midas. Will they survive return to White Feathers Academy as failures, or will this mission cost them their lives?
After tossing around in my bed for what seemed to be hours, I called Koze and showed him the latest note. This caused more blinking and twirling followed by a few seconds of silence before he gave me a surprising answer.
“The Fallen Ones are the children of wrath.”
My first thought was maybe they were children who did not survive their world, either. Maybe they were on a mission.
“No, not like you.” It was amazing how Koze knew exactly what I was thinking.
“The Fallen lived within our realms and enjoyed all the blessings of the protective angels until their submissions to Deadly Sins claimed their souls. They became scavengers who ravage the souls of the good.”
“Koze, you’re frightening me.”
“I must tell you the truth. You have been warned. Your mission has declared itself. Now, you must be strong to survive. I am a link away.” I sat on Midas’ favorite rug and watched Koze fade away then cried myself to sleep.
