The Spy Lover Book Review

Title: The Spy Lover
Author: Kiana Davenport
Length: 303 pages
Format: Paperback/ eBook
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Release Date: Aug 28, 2012
Buy Link: Amazon


Thrust into the savagery of the Civil War, a Chinese immigrant serving in the Union Army, a nurse doubling as a spy for the North, and a one-armed Confederate cavalryman find their lives inextricably entwined.
Fleeing drought and famine in China, Johnny Tom arrives in America with dreams of becoming a citizen. Having survived vigilantes hunting “yellow dogs” and slave auction- blocks, Johnny is kidnapped from his Mississippi village by Confederate soldiers, taken from his wife and daughter, and forced to fight for the South. Eventually defecting to the Union side, he is promised American citizenship in exchange for his loyal services. But first Johnny must survive the butchery of battles and the cruelties inflicted on non-white soldiers.
Desperate to find Johnny, his daughter, Era, is enlisted as a spy. She agrees to work as a nurse at Confederate camps while scouting for the North. Amidst the unspeakable carnage of wounded soldiers, she finds solace in Warren Petticomb, a cavalryman who lost an arm at Shiloh. As devastation mounts in both armies, Era must choose where her loyalties lie—with her beloved father in the North, or with the man who passionately sustains her in the South.
A novel of extraordinary scope that will stand as a defining work on the Chinese immigrant experience, The Spy Lover is a paean to the transcendence of love and the resilience of the human spirit


The Spy Lover was a very enlightening read. Well researched with a lot of insight into the Civil War, it is definitely headed for success.

The three main characters – Johnny, Eva and Warren are emotionally portrayed making the reader really get ‘into’ their lives. Johnny - a Chinese man, comes from China to America in search of a future. Instead he is kidnapped and made to join the fight against the south in the US Civil War, where he is treated in the worst possible way because he is not white. His daughter Eva becomes a spy in order to search for her father and meets Warren a Confederate soldier from whom she hides her past.
A poignant romance, a history retold – The Spy Lover is a book that you will be unable to put

Five Stars all the way!!

Book Review : Deja Vu All Over Again


IT HAD LONG BEEN DEBATED THAT THE END OF DAYS FOR PLANET EARTH WAS SET IN CONCRETE AS DECEMBER 21, 2012. Mathematical savant Ana Christensen was merely following her instincts when working a theorem in a direction and style that could have never been accepted by traditional mathematicians. As a result she stumbled upon an ancient Mayan creation, a time loop beginning in 3114BC and ending on the long contested twenty first century date. In a dynamic race against time, Ana and her male compatriot battle the forces of individual evil, bureaucracy, paramilitary mercenaries, and most powerful of all…destiny.


With December 21, 2012 fast approaching, most wonder whether it will be the end of the world and what it will be like. Deja Vu All Over Again is a story that is based around this date. A fast paced thriller this book combines Sci-fi and suspense to make it a winner. While I am not usually a sci-fi fan, Deja Vu All Over Again is a book I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

It tells the story of a woman called Ana who tries to save the world. The book has a little of everything – violence, romance, fantasy and action. Ana connects to quantum space and transcends the time loop.

A five star rated book, it is definitely one that will do well for a holiday read.
