Capture by Heather Renee

Capture (Elite Supernatural Trackers, #2)Book Description:
One final task to complete before they're released, but what price will it come with?

I never would have predicted I'd still be stuck in Mandora Supernatural Prison for as long as I have been, but I refuse to give up hope. No matter how long it takes, I'll find a way out from under the warden's twisted rule. More importantly, I'll do it the right way because a life on the run isn't one I'm after.

With the Fabled Four at my back and my feisty fairy sidekick on my shoulder, I won't stop until we're all released from the hell we've been stuck in. But with tensions high, escape isn't as easy as it sounds while we hunt down those the warden wants.

It will take all the power I can acquire, and for our group to finally work as a team, in order for us to come out on top, but just when victory in our sights, we realize not everything is as it seems.

My Thoughts:
Yep!  Another great one from one of my favorite authors.  Okay, so this book picks up where the first one left off (Start with book 1, you won't be disappointed).  I'm brimming with questions after reading the whole thing, but some of my initial questions were answered.  The characters I loved from the first book are still here and still making me smile.
I love the snappy comebacks and sassiness.  These characters absolutely have unique personalities and I love it.  Cara and Jax--yay!  Nixie was great in this one.  Cara grew so much as a character and I think we are getting closer to answers for her.  Not to mention the FF, yep this is a series that I cannot wait to continue reading.
It was a 5/5 for me.

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.

My book is a crazy book! Unbelievable, really. I had taken one year of bible college and lived focused on one doctrine. Divorce. I have now studied under the top professors in the world. It looks at divorce and remarriage in the first church. The Jewish system, verses a open minded Gentile legal system.

The holy spirit, and a girl. Always a girl is involved somewhere in every good story.

What it would have been like in first century

Everything. The most difficult was studying national and international law.

Venues: Marriage and Family

Unilateral marriages in the Old Testament, (bride price) transfers authority from the father of the bride to the groom, preventing the wife from being able to divorce her husband and allowing the man to marry in polygamy. Bilateral marriages under Greco-Roman law, (like we have today) creates an egalitarian society where either spouse can initiate the divorce, and polygamy is not allowed. These two ideals were at war in the first century church. The Law of Moses allowed man to put away his wife for uncleanness. The Law of Ezra commanded the circumcised men of Israel to put away their pagan wives and children born unto them. Was the woman given the equal right to put away her husband in the New Testament? And why does Paul seem to talk about men and women differently regarding divorce and remarriage in his letter to Corinth? This short-book explores marriage, divorce, and remarriage in ways you have never heard before.

Britfield and the Lost Crown by C.R. Stewart

Britfield and the Lost CrownBook Description:
Britfield & the Lost Crown is the first book in a thrilling seven-part series for middle school and young adult readers. It will inspire children to engage both their creativity and their critical thinking skills as they encounter actual places, authentic characters, and exciting but realistic events in seventeen action-packed chapters.
Based on family, friendship, loyalty, and courage, Britfield & the Lost Crown and its hero, Tom, take readers on an epic adventure across England – from the smoldering crags of Yorkshire to the heart of London and, finally, to the magnificent shores of Dover.
With help from his best friend, Sarah, and a hot air balloon, Tom flees Yorkshire, escaping from Weatherly Orphanage and the clutches of a relentless detective, in pursuit of the truth about himself and his heritage: Are his parents still alive? Is he the true heir to the British throne? As Tom and a memorable cast of both heroic and dastardly characters unravel a royal mystery that could change the course of history, readers are taken on a breathless journey to a surprise ending that will leave them clamoring for more .
Built on more than seven years of extensive research and development, Britfield & the Lost Crown creates a real world that readers can embrace as it weaves accurate geography, literature, architecture, and history into its fast-paced story. With stimulating language and active writing, Britfield engages the reader from the first pages and doesn’t let go until it reaches its exciting conclusion.

My Thoughts:
I was excited to get this book to review and it certainly did not disappoint.  Tom and Sarah are orphans and they have to escape the horrible orphanage they live in.  There is a detective that specializes in tracking down children and they must evade him if they are going to remain free and get answers to some very puzzling questions.
This book was one adventure/escape after the other.  It is aimed for children but I completely enjoyed it and have shared it with my 12 year old who is enjoying it immensely.  I loved the action, the mystery, and the friendship.  Overall the entire story was well thought out and wonderfully written. 
It is a 5/5 and will stay on my keeper shelf.
