About the book:
Sophie Frangos is torn between the love of two men and the promise that binds them all together. Markos Stavros loves Sophie from afar while battling his thirst for vengeance and his hunger for honor. Dino, his quiet and intelligent brother, simply wants to forget the horror that drove them from their Greek island home to start a new life in America. One of these sons of thunder offers a future she longs for, the other the past she lost. From the sultry Chicago jazz clubs of the roaring twenties to the World War II battlefields of Europe to a final showdown in a Greek island village, they'll discover betrayal, sacrifice and finally redemption. Most of all, when Sophie is forced to make her choice, she'll learn that God honors the promises made by the Sons of Thunder. 

Sons of Thunder launches the new Romantic Suspense line for Summerside Press - it will be available to purchase in Wal-mart mid-January. Also - its uniquely written - its an epic suspense story written as three novellas - 3 points of view, 3 settings

My Review:
I am a huge fan of Susan May Warren and her latest release just confirms why she is one of my favorite authors! Sons of Thunder has drama, adventure, violence, love, and most importantly faith! Right from the first page I was hooked! There were definitely NO boring parts in the story! It not only included awesome scenes in a Chicago speakeasy but WWII espionage in Greece and a really touching scene on the battlefields of Europe!

Sons of Thunder is sooo terrific I could not put it down! I wasn't sure how I would feel about the book divided in 3 parts between the 3 main characters but I love it, each part flows naturally into the other. And let me tell you those Stavros brothers are 2 of my favorite fiction heroes *hubba hubba.* Who can resist tall, dark, and handsome? Not me!!! This is one story that both readers of Christian fiction and secular fiction will enjoy. It's not at all preachy but it doesn't lack a good message either! I definitely think Sons of Thunder is a must read!

  1. I'm commenting here just to tell you that I enjoyed reading your review, Renee. Your enthusiasm is terrific. Have a terrific weekend!

  2. Thank you so much Suko! I'm glad you enjoyed my review! I hope you have a great weekend too! :-)

    XOXO~ Renee

  3. Great review, Renee. :) Going to have to get this one. I've never read a book by her and now I really want too!

  4. The premise sounds really good, but I'm not quite sure on the idea that the story is basically told through three novellas. I may keep an eye out for it though.

  5. @'s actually not really told in 3 novellas it's just basically what's going on in each of the 3 characters lives at different times. Really a good story.

    XOXO~ Renee

  6. WOW! Thank you for another great review, Renee. Your review are always fun to read, unlike mine, which could rival any theology professor, on the "Boring Scale".LOL I definitely will have to go out and buy SOT for sure;)
    Renee, have a fantastic weekend!
    Love Ya,

  7. No surprise you loved this one, Renee! of your faves. :p

    Susan May Warren is one of my fave authors, but I'm not big on "war" romances. However, I'm willing to give it a try. I have it on my TBR mountain, but won't be able to start it for at least a month. :(

    Yet another wonderful review...thanks for sharing!


  8. Great review! I just finished a book about WWII also.
