10.4.19 Alan Gratz—a master of Historical Fiction… and more

Today is {BOOKflix Friday}!

Get the popcorn ready.

Alan Gratz is a prolific author who is becoming better known every year. His books even have a distinct look to them—I can spot one from across the room. You would probably want to visit his site to check them all out.
His last four books are historical fiction. Lots of action. Lots of drama. Very gritty.
Let’s have a look:







Coming Oct 15, 2019


June 6, 1944. D-Day.

Nearly 160,000 troops crossed the English Channel to invade German-occupied France, most of them from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Thousands more in France fought the Nazis at home. It was a day of unprecedented unity and cooperation.

But many people played heroic roles on D-Day only to return to lives after the war filled with prejudice, segregation, and injustice. Algerian Muslim soldiers fought in the French Resistance and the Free French Army, only to have to wage a bloody war for independence after the war. Jewish soldiers fighting for the liberation of concentration camps dealt with anti-Semitism among the very men who fought alongside them. African-American soldiers fought on the beaches at D-Day but remained segregated from white soldiers throughout the war, and returned home to find German prisoners of war treated better than they were in their hometowns.

Their stories and others are told in Allies, a novel that, like D-Day itself, proves we are stronger together.


He has a couple other books as well. Keep your eyes open for these and more:



Book One in 

Thirty days hath September. Seven heroes we remember.

Young Archie Dent knows there really are monsters in the world. His parents are members of the Septemberist Society, whose job it is to protect humanity from hideous giant monsters called the Mangleborn. Trapped in underground prisons for a thousand years, the Mangleborn have been all but forgotten–until now.

Evil genius Thomas Alva Edison and his experiments in the forbidden science of electricity have awakened a Mangleborn in the swamps of Florida. When Archie’s parents and the rest of the Septemberists are brainwashed by the monster, it’s up to Archie and his loyal Tik Tok manservant Mr. Rivets to assemble a new team of seven young heroes to save the world: the League of Seven.
