6-16-2014 7-44-26 PMTitle: When Camels Fly

Author: NLB Horton

Genre: Suspense


A mother’s fatal shot. A daughter’s deadly choice.

In Israel, archaeologist Grace Madison shoots her daughter’s abductor. Seconds later, a handsome shepherd drops from the sky to kill a second assassin. Their world changes in two blinks of an eye.

Unbeknownst to them, a fiercely ambitious evil is destroying everything in its path—the unconventional path Grace and Maggie take. They struggle to right a wrong as old as time, and discover time is running out in the race for their lives. Family and friends are swept into their vortex, extinguishing old flames while igniting new loves.

While the scale tips dangerously toward disaster, millions of lives hang in the balance. And the mother-and-daughter team soon realizes nothing is as it seems. Even each other.

Because choosing what’s right is all that’s left.



I received a free uncorrected proof of this book for an honest review.

When Camels Fly is a thriller full of suspense. It grabs your interest from the beginning.

You really get to know the main characters, the Madison family. Grace, the mother, is an amazing woman and mom. She’d do anything to keep her children safe. Her daughter, Maggie, finds herself in some trouble. Graces race to help and her husband, Mark, and son, Jeff, aren’t far behind.

When Camels Fly is well written. Along with intrigue, espionage, and suspense there are great family dynamics. All members of the Madison family have their own secrets. There are also religious references but it’s not over done.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes action, espionage, and thrillers.
