Seek The Truth

by Giselle Aguiar, Award-Winning, Christian Author

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me," and "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 14:2; 3:16-17)

Review: Invasion (A C.H.A.O.S. Novel)

This entry is part 6 of 17 in the series Reviews

I got into BookSneeze to get free books if I blogged a review. My favorite genre is historical fiction/romances and I had read all the ones they had available so I tried “Invasion” because I enjoy a good sci-fi novel every so often. Not this one. First, I’m not a comic book fan and second, I don’t particularly care for teen fiction.

It’s the story of a young man whose parents are killed in a car accident and he slowly figures out that his grandfather is the “Phantom Flyer” who used futuristic weapons during World War II. These weapons had been brought to earth by aliens who use “portals” to travel from their planets to earth. (Gee, sounds a bit like “Stargate”.)

Except the historian in me didn’t buy the laser weapons or the flying backpack in WWII.

In all honesty, I got halfway through and gave up.

Not my cup of tea, but if you like sci-fi comic books, you might like this.

Review: Pompeii: City on Fire: A Novel (Paperback)

This entry is part 3 of 17 in the series Reviews


Pompeii: City on Fire: A Novel (Paperback) By T. L. Higley


I literrally stumbled upon this title when I was looking for ways to market my own novel, “Deo Volente! (God Willing):Love in the First Century.” My story ends in Pompeii with Vesuvius erupting and so does this one. It released the month before mine and I had to read it. The stories are different. “Pompeii – City on Fire” is the story of a teenage Jewish girl taken prisoner after the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD and is sold into slavery and taken toRome. Trying to escape, she sees the opportunity in switching identities with a young gladiator trainee and eventually ends up in Pompeii just before Vesuvius erupts in 79 AD. Having thoroughly research that era myself, I was impressed that the author was historically accurate. Tho many of the most interesting details of the events of Vesuvius’ eruption that I cover in my story were left out.

Review: The Centurion’s Wife (Acts of Faith, Book 1)

This entry is part 2 of 17 in the series Reviews


The Centurion’s Wife (Acts of Faith, Book 1) by Janette Oke and David Bunn

I’ve read several of Oke/Bunn’s novels and this one caught my eye as it’s in the same genre as my book, Deo Volente! (God Willing): Love in the first century. As a history buff and a Christians I started writing asking the question “what would it have been like to live in the first century among Jesus’ early followers and builders of the first churches?” “The Centurion’s Wife” does just that. I takes you to the time right after that Easter Sunday morning as Pontius Pilot and his wife Procula each send “spies” to investigate the death and mysterious disappearance of “the prophet” and to find out if the Jews are planning a revolt. Pilot’s spy is Alban, the centurion who is betrothed to Procula’s spy, Leah. Each mix and mingle with Jesus’ followers and dutifully report back to their respective masters. The title is a bit of misnomer since Leah is really the centurion’s betrothed not his wife. This is a first in a trilogy. I will read the others.
