I read this book because a friend of mine knew I was interested in starting a book club and her uncle is the author of this book As I read the back of it I was worried that it was going to interest me but at the same time sounded not bad Well I started reading it and it is a great book He is a very knowledgeable man when it comes to the gospel, the places in the book etc I wish he would have added an epilogue but maybe he is going to write a sequel There were a couple of things that I was a bit concerned about but that is on a personal level with the gospel I think whether you are LDS or not the book is a terrific read and he does have footnotes to explain the LDS references Thank you to my friend and her uncle for bringing this book to me Truly amazed. I do not have the book right here so I am not sure of what the parts of the book were labeled that I am going to refer to but I read the introductory author s note and thought, I am somehow repelled by this whole idea Then I read the intro chapter and felt just about the same I decided that I would give it one chapter to change my mind I got caught up in the story and somewhere around the middle if the book I realized I hadn t even noticed any chapters I did do some scan reading which usually means a 2 star rating but I liked it better than that overall So I guess I would rate the story a 4 but average it with the 2 for scan reading and get a three star rating. 5 STARS I loved it Had to stay awake till I was done reading at 1 30 am I like Paladin Smith Most of the other characters too, though some I did not like which ones I was supposed too Persona Non Grata is a exciting adventure LDS beliefs, and values were shared They were also explained terms people might not know in different ink on my ARC ebook Though the book is fiction a lot of things were right about the hot bed of trouble in the former Soviet Union Dramatic, spiritual, action packed novel Paladin Smith is a seminary teacher and history teacher He has been married for three years I would have liked to have had him as a teacher He cared about his students out of the classroom too He is asked by someone he does not respect too go to Crimea and help his former student get out of trouble I liked how he went and talked it over with his wife and father before he decided what to do Paladin is not what you expect from a thriller hero He follows his conscience and the spirit He asks for help through prayer, he respects people and their beliefs The setting of the book was loosely set in Crimea With Russia s army to go and take back the country He started writing this 5 years ago Before Russia really went in with its army into Crimea I would love to see Paladin again If you want a good clean exciting thriller than read Persona Non Grata I was given this ebook to read from Cedar Fort and agreed in return to give honest review of it and be part of its blog tour. I read Persona non Grata while working the night shift Not the most ideal sitting in bed sipping tea while reading scenerio, but a computer chair in the air conditioned charting room at the back of the hospital unit was good enough I don t often read religious novels, mainly because I m picky with what I read in general I m trying to be better about that , but I found myself having trouble putting this book down For what ever reason, Mr Stirling held my attention starting at the very first sentence and ending at the last I was certainly impressed with the descriptive wording He certainly has a talent for showing rather than telling, which is a skill many authors have trouble with I m guilty of this at times This story will take any reader on an unsuspecting journey to a foreign place few have heard of It s action packed, humorous and fun to read I certainly recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading Persona non Grata is an uplifting story that shows people to have faith and to never give up I look forward to keeping in touch with Mr Stirling and reading future works He s certainly opened my eyes to unknown possibilities What a talented family
