Deadly Alliance

Book Details
Author: A. L. Sowards
Release Date: April 2014
Publisher: Covenant Communications
Genre: Historical


"A little mystery, a little history, a little romance, and a lot of action, adventure, and suspense."

I was fascinated by the many things that went along with the actual war battles...

The captures, the torture, the imprisonments, and the separation of loved ones.

Just when you think this book could have come to a wonderful ending and the good guys have won there is a new TWIST that takes you through yet another capture...another torture...another terrible situation.

Not so many details that it makes the book scary, but enough that you will definitely AND quickly turn the pages to see if they can ever make it through this terrible war...

Peter and his men have been sent on a mission...destroy a bridge behind the Nazi line in Bosnia.

Peter does not want to leave Genevieve, but if he doesn't her life will be in jeopardy.

What Peter doesn't know is that his commander has tagged this as "a suicide mission...."

One way or another Peter's life is suppose to end.

Can he endure and make it back to his Genevieve?

Genevieve has not heard from Peter.

Everyone believes he is dead, but she holds on to hope.

"Desperate for information, her work as a courier soon escalates into a counterintelligence duel with a Fascist assassin—and Genevieve is his newest target . . ."

Can she stay alive and find her Peter?

My favorite quote:

"What do you say to someone when you've saved their life and they've saved yours and you've been through the worst life has to offer together? What do you say to the men you've starved with, to the man you've face the firing squad with? How do you say good-bye, knowing it might be for the rest of your life?"


About the Author
I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in Moses Lake, Washington. Then I came to Utah to attend school and ended up staying. Books have always been an important part of my life. I remember writing self-illustrated storybooks at my grandparent’s house when I was in elementary school (none of those made it to publication for many good reasons) and attending my first writer’s conference when I was in third grade.

Another big part of my early life was swimming. I swam for the Big Bend Manta Rays, the Moses Lake Manta Rays, Moses Lake High School, and Brigham Young University. In addition to swimming, I studied Political Science and English at BYU.

Now I’m a busy mom with young twins. I still love to read and I also love to write. I’m usually reading a couple books at once and working on multiple writing projects too. Other than that, my life is pretty ordinary. I’m grateful for that. I’ll let the characters in my books have all the adventures.

What can you expect from my books?
Primarily, I write to entertain. I also hope my books will teach readers something new about history or about life (anything from the wisdom of wearing your seatbelt to the truth that it’s never too late to change). My novels usually take place during wartime, so there is some violence, but it’s not gory or excessive. I keep the language and romance family-friendly. My goal is for my writing to be thrilling, clean, and uplifting.
