Heaven’s Power Reveals Itself in New Thriller by Pat and Chris Hoffman

coverHoffman

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Fury of the Fifth Angel” by Pat and Chris Hoffman.

Nights skies reveal something is on its way that could affect the entire world, but nobody is talking about it in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Two authors turn their experiences with electricity into a thriller of epic proportions.

When well-respected astronomer Ben Cohen confirms his suspicions about an impending meteorite storm, even the president of the United States sits up and takes notice. That storm, which will have a catastrophic effect on the world, begins its work quietly at first, but eventually people start to notice, including electric power grid control operator John Halloran working in upstate New York. This new thriller draws on the authors’ insider knowledge of electricity, meshing technical know-how with a realistic story about the human instinct to survive.

In “Fury of the Fifth Angel,” the president must make tough decisions about how to handle the threat of the storm. His task is made more difficult thanks to Rev. Randall Davis, a believer in signs who follows his heart and a heavenly authority who begins talking about end times. As John works to puzzle out what is happening to the power grid, he has help from a new acquaintance, Devon Grant of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. As the government moves in to cover up the severity of what the celestial sightings mean, John will need all of his instincts to prove what’s going on and what to do about this news that could signal the end of the world.

“The authors will open many eyes to both how a power system operates and the vulnerabilities of these systems,” writes O-T-S owner Mike Terbrueggen in the book’s forward.” “This is the first book I have ever read that combines a complex technical field (power systems), deep personal relationships, political intrigue, and old-time religion into one fast-paced story.” In a second forward, Edward Rhoads, an astrophysicist lecturer at Indianapolis University Purdue University in Indianapolis warns of the real-life dangers of objects from space. “It is not a matter of if but when, where, and how much damage. The events portrayed in this book will occur someday,” he writes, adding that readers need to choose leaders who will invest in equipment to detect space objects on a path to Earth.

Father-son writing team Albert James “Pat” Hoffman and Chris Hoffman both worked in the electric utility industry as well as visiting and working for many electric companies and organizations. Pat, now retired, lives with his wife in upstate New York during the summer and central Florida in the winter. Chris lives in central Indiana with his wife and four children. They already are working on a sequel to “Fury of the Fifth Angel.”

New Novel by Susan Rosvall Provides Thoughtful Look at Vietnam Experience

coverRosvall

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Silence is Broken” by Susan S. Rosvall.

A young man’s military ordeal is detailed in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. After a temporary withdrawal from college, William Scofield is drafted into a 1st Infantry artillery unit in Vietnam; decades pass before he breaks his silence, revealing the shocking story of his 1966 tour of duty.

Author Susan S. Rosvall taps into her brother’s personal Vietnam experience to create the character of Private William Scofield, who stars in this new book.  A naïve young man from a middle-class Southern California family, Bill is unprepared for the brutalities that await him in the III Corps battle zone of Vietnam.

In the relentless heat of Vietnam, Bill confronts both an internal and an external enemy.  Assigned to a seven-man howitzer crew, he meets the hateful Sergeant Moore, an illiterate Klansman from Alabama, who makes it his business to bring Bill down.  In spite of Moore’s insidious threats, and the bone-chilling attacks of North Vietnamese soldiers in the field, Bill performs with courage and self-reliance.  Unwittingly, he emerges a hero 

Meanwhile, Bill’s mother, Abigail, fears that her son will be physically or psychologically damaged by the war, or that he won’t return at all.  Desperately, she searches for information about the politics and progress of the war, hoping to stay emotionally connected to Bill.

“Silence is Broken” is a heartbreakingly realistic portrayal of a young man who becomes an instrument of destruction for an ill-defined cause.  Forever changed, Scofield could be any boy sent to war and forced to act in a manner that goes entirely against his nature.  In the end, his childlike trust of national leaders — and human nature itself — evolves into a mature cynicism.

This is the first novel for author Susan S. Rosvall, whose painstaking research is evident on every page. Rosvall, an English composition teacher at California State University, Los Angeles, lives in San Marino, Calif.
