5 STARS I loved it. Had to stay awake till I was done reading at 1:30 am. I like Paladin Smith. Most of the other characters too, though some I did not like which ones I was supposed too. Persona Non Grata is a exciting adventure. LDS beliefs, and values were shared. They were also explained terms people might not know in different ink on my ARC ebook. Though the book is fiction a lot of things were right about the hot bed of trouble in the former Soviet Union. Dramatic, spiritual, action packed novel. Paladin Smith is a seminary teacher and history teacher. He has been married for three years. I would have liked to have had him as a teacher. He cared about his students out of the classroom too. He is asked by someone he does not respect too go to Crimea and help his former student get out of trouble. I liked how he went and talked it over with his wife and father before he decided what to do. Paladin is not what you expect from a thriller hero. He follows his conscience and the spirit. He asks for help through prayer, he respects people and their beliefs. The setting of the book was loosely set in Crimea. With Russia's army to go and take back the country. He started writing this 5 years ago. Before Russia really went in with its army into Crimea. I would love to see Paladin again. If you want a good clean exciting thriller than read Persona Non Grata. I was given this ebook to read from Cedar Fort and agreed in return to give honest review of it and be part of its blog tour.
OH. THIS. BOOK. IS. GOOD! A GREAT SUSPENSEFUL READ with political, national and even personal unrest! What is a high school teacher doing in Easter Europe? Being way out of his comfort zone! The congressman's niece is in Crimea, a nation that is ready to go to war, and the only person that can persuade her to come home is her former teacher, Paladin Smith. Trying to convince himself that this will be an easy-in, easy-out...Paladin says he will go. What truly awaits him is a scene of political up-rise, and international conspiracy. As soon as the plane touches down Paladin finds himself being questioned of who he really is and why he is really there. Paladin is creative in the classroom... But can he be creative in getting his former student out of the country or is this just "a mad journey across half the globe?" "Dive into a world of corrupt diplomats and ambitious tyrants" and a guy just trying to do what he thinks is right. LOVED. LOVED. LOVED. IT! DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS ONE! I WOULD LOVE TO READ MORE FROM THIS AUTHOR!
