I'm a writer. That's all that can be said here. I love writing and I absolutely hate marketing. It just goes to show you where your natural talents lie. Writing comes easy. Marketing...that's something I will be learning until the day I die. All I can say about my books is that they're meant to entertain.

This is a very clever and exciting book. Edita A. Petrik has done an amazing job, with a combination of great characters and a unique storyline. Certainly something that sets this story apart from other Thrillers Is the mythological ‘Peacetaker’. How can you catch a person who is causing mayhem and death when you can’t identify them from anyone else? I also enjoyed that this story takes us to different countries, and the detail and background of how the ‘Peacetaker’ came into existence. AuthorDr Fineas Gahji the Assistant Director of Cairo Museum of Antiquities knew he had found something quite amazing. However, it took him a long time to find someone that believed him. It’s not surprising though, as most people don’t believe in mythological figures. Dr Gahji uncovered the ‘Peacetaker’ who has the power to alter animals and people’s minds, just not in a good way. Unfortunately, Dr Gahji was broke, and he badly needed funds, and this is why he approached the billionaire Nicola Moses. Nicola wasn’t a good man, and the US believed he posed a serious threat to them with his involvement in funding terrorism around the world. He already had power because of this vast wealth, and he had political aspirations as well. Dr Gahji made a terrible mistake selling the ‘Peacetaker’ to such an evil man. After witnessing and experiencing firsthand the violence in Egypt where many people died, Carter knows he needs to find someone to help him with such an unusual adversary. After he experienced the mind shift in the stadium in Cairo, he knew the blinding anger the ‘Peacetaker’ could invoke in people. He’s no stranger to violence after being in Special Operations as a Ranger, but he has never experienced violence on this scale. He tracks down Stella Hunter, an expert in Mythology and convinces her that she has to help. They both realise that the ‘Peacemaker’ has made it to America when there is a deadly massacre at the “Warriors Festival” in Washington. However, finding and stopping him is going to be easier said than done, especially since they don’t know what he looks like. This was such an easy and enjoyable book to read, and I would certainly recommend this story as a very worthwhile book to read.

Loved this Stella Hunter Adventure! Whether you've had the pleasure of reading author Edita Petrick's "Stella Hunter series" or not, her "Ribbons of Death" is one not to be missed. Also a story that has Stella Hunter as a primary character, this one is another great story that combines the elements of mystery, suspense, adventure, and history into a fantastic adventure. After an accidental archeological find, Stella teams up with a skeptical Carter to solve the mystery of "the Peacetaker". The idea of this myth is fascinating as is what happens to the person who is "infected" by it, as Carter has been in the past. I found this to be an awesome story with a unique story line and a great resolution that was much better than anything I could have cooked up. The chemistry, non-romantic in nature, between the two main characters was built up very well and added a nice element to the book. Definitely recommend this one.

overall this was a very entertaining and interesting read for me. “Ribbons of Death” definitely kept me turning the pages after what was admittedly a bit of a slow start. But when the people start acting CRAZY, attacking others and the madness lets loose, well, the story just takes off from there and kept me so engrossed I was reading late into the night. I’ve always been fascinated with Egyptian (and other) myth and legends but have never really read much of them… so for me this book was a total delight and made me think. And I liked that it wasn’t predictable or cliché at all… Whatever this author writes next I’ll be adding it to my TBR pile. Recommend for adults, as there is a bit of language.

from the opening pages of “Ribbons of Death” I knew it would be different from the books I’ve been reading lately and I was right! Ms. Petrick sets up the intricate storyline and characterizations in a skillful way that not only pulls us in, but creates great visualizations and elicits emotional investments. I truly cared about the characters’ fates, and was shocked and saddened at certain things (no spoilers). An interesting and diverse cast of characters, along with several intriguing plotlines interwoven against unique setting makes this a memorable read for me. Highly recommend.

4.5 stars wow Ribbons of Death by Edita A. Petrick was awesome... I have not read anything like that in a long time, if ever. For once it seemed like the characters were anything but the stock, ordinary typical hero/protag guys, but instead all had different angles and secrets (well, some) and I loved the myth/legend angle and the Egyptian mythology. The conversations and dialoge were all very natural and did a great job of pulling the story forward as a good pace (for the most part… there are some lulls here and there). But overall it all came together to create a fresh-feeling novel that was out of the ordinary and kept me hooked throughout. “Ribbons of Death” is a standalone novel (not a part of any series, it appears), but I’m looking forward to reading more from Edita Petrick!

I found myself wavering around while reading Ribbons of Death by Edita A Petrick. At first I was immediately grabbed by the writing and characters, and became immersed in the unique world setting and plot development. But there were times I felt the story wasn’t as focused as I’d like, with some conversations and scenes maybe weren’t necessary and perhaps could have been eliminated to tighten the narrative some. But at the same time, the pacing was mostly pretty good, especially once the story really kicked in (approx. 10% in…) and there was pretty much nonstop action and some unexpected developments toward the end. It felt fresh and unpredictable, always a nice experience, especially in a genre that is fraught with copycats. If you like mystery, suspense, and some global flavor, this is a great book for you.

this book was amazing... Okay I do not even know where to begin because so much happens and I don’t want to give anything away… “Ribbons of Death” by author Edita A. Petrick is one of the most just flat out interesting novels I’ve read in a long time, and has totally piqued my interest in Egyptian mythology and other cultural legends. I liked it for so many different reasons, first the writing was stellar. The strong word choice and fluid prose makes it a very easy book to sink into. There are enough descriptions where you can picture everything perfectly, but not so much that it bogs down the pacing. It just felt more “intelligent” than a lot of books (like maybe I learned something), but was very easy to read at the same time. Highly recommend.

one of the most original and well-crafted novels I’ve read in a long time! I was completely drawn in from the get-go, and absolutely loved the author’s use of description of the different scenery and locales, and her attention to detail. The characters are all interesting and well-developed (and there are so many of them!) There is something of everything in “Ribbons of Death”… mystery, thriller, action, drama, history, and even some paranormalish/fantasy elements. Excellent editing, and I will love to read more from Ms. Petrick in the future… happy to see she has quite the backlist!
