Looking for your next epic and thrilling adventure?
Make sure to take check out Beginning of Arrogance: Book 1 of A Paladin’s Journey by Bryan Cole.
Paladins are nothing but trouble. Stories about paladins are everywhere, noble warriors riding magic steeds into battle against terrible foes. Champions of their gods. Heroes to everyone, except those who already have everything. Paladins are notorious for upsetting the balance of power, to the detriment of any who don’t worship their deity.
So when Krell is called to service by the capricious god of the seas and skies, ReckNor, those with wealth and power can’t help but be concerned. ReckNor hasn’t called a paladin in years, and his nature is ever-changing and erratic. The fact that Krell is also an uneducated nobody with a stubborn streak as wide as the sea turns their concerns into fear.
All of which matters less than the threat clawing its way from the waves, ready to turn the ocean red with spilled blood . . .
Are you into the world of politics?
Then make sure to check out Silent Voices: Rule by Policy on Canada’s Indian Reserves by Mel Benvan.
This must-read book allows you to gain a closer understanding of Canada’s laws and policies that continually keep Indigenous people down and helpless, and how we can change this.
Mel Bevan set out to write the book never before written to find the root cause of the helplessness of the people who live on Canada’s Indian reservations. Bevan examines the laws, policies, and practices of the government of Canada and the provinces to find the reason archaic practices continue unabated to the present day. Native leaders accept the laws, policies, and rules not because they generally agree with them; they accept them because they have little or no alternative.
The people who live on the reserves have no method of changing their living conditions. The Indian Act and its regulations, along with rules, policies, and political decisions, both national and provincial, collectively fabricate and entrench a self-correcting and self-perpetuating system. The overall system fosters dysfunction, and the dysfunction created by the system fuels the system in a never-ending circle.
The system is self-correcting—any improvements achieved in some communities by progressive leaders revert to the original conditions or become worse when progressive leaders are eventually replaced. The sum of all actions and policies of colonial governors, laws, and policies created and enforced by successive governments of Canada and the refusal of provincial and territorial governments to consider residents of Indian reserves in the same context as their respective citizens has deeply entrenched the deadlocked public policy of Canada, perpetuating the endless struggle to nowhere.
Enjoy these great additions to your collection! And don’t forget to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads after you’ve finished reading.
