The C Enigma
By Spiros Gratsias
ISBN: 978-1499625608
Published: August 2014
Pages: 312
Genre: Historical Fiction
A particular brand of evil has reared its ugly head at certain points throughout history, and humanity must fight to keep it in check. This balance is sometimes managed on the scale of world wars, but it can also come down to an individual’s actions. The C ENIGMA explores the premise that one man’s courage can influence the outcome of a war on evil as large and powerful as Hitler’s Nazism. Chance—or perhaps fate—leads Matthias Adkins up to his grandfather’s attic, where he discovers a hidden picture of Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, the head of the German secret service during WWII. A few other items reveal that his grandfather has left him a set of riddles that will lead him through three time periods—1945, 1988, and 2008—on a hunt for his family’s identity and his own destiny…which turns out to be a destiny beyond his wildest dreams.

The Evolutionist
By Avi Sirlin
Publisher: Aurora Metro Press
Published: September 2014
ISBN: 978-1906582531
Genre: Historical Fiction
Formats Available For Review: pdf

The Malay Archipelago. 1858. In these remote tropics, a young British naturalist, Alfred Wallace, toils in obscurity. He collects specimens - beetles, moths, ants and birds - that sell for pennies apiece in England.

One night, suffering from fever and hallucination, Wallace solves the greatest mystery of the era: the origin of species. To circulate his discovery, Wallace contacts a distant acquaintance - Charles Darwin, who has been secretly penning a near-identical version of the same evolutionary theory for twenty years. Darwin achieves world-renown and Wallace earns, if nothing else, widespread grudging respect. But then Wallace returns to England where his advocacy for ideas ranging from socialism to spiritualism sets him on a collision course with the men at the very heart of the scientific establishment, including Darwin.

The Evolutionist is an historical novel concerning one of Britain's most controversial and misunderstood Victorians. In a pivotal epoch that pits science against faith, Alfred Wallace steps forth alone, an enigmatic maverick who boldly and unabashedly declares equal belief in both.
