“I just kept turning the pages and could not put it down… The story was fast-paced and very interesting and kept me on the edge of my seat.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Alma Boucher (5 STARS)

“I seldom read a book and start laughing out loud, but with Playing with Fire… this happened more than once. …Waiting for the next book is going to feel like an eternity. I can’t wait to read more about these characters who later on felt like friends.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Antoinette Wessels (5 STARS)

“…a fascinating and exciting story that has depth and different cultural references. This shows how much effort the author put into the story and added to the already amazing writing and plot.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Miche Arendse (5 STARS)

Uncommon Bonds –
Book 2

A grainy photograph and a cry for help begin a new descent into terror for long-separated friends Lotte Schwarz and Eric Schneider.

“Noland has a gift for vivid description and a sense of place; his action scenes are wonderfully cinematic. As much as I liked Playing with Fire, the first book in the series, I liked Hammer to Fall even more. The characters are older and their adult dilemmas are more relatable. Eric in particular continues to develop and to grow in self-understanding and confidence.” ~ JCH (5 STARS)

“Noland masterfully weaves historical fiction with modern fiction, with two equally interesting intertwined narratives that converge over the course of the story. Perhaps my favorite aspect is the development of Lotte and Eric, both as individual people and as the ‘odd couple’ that is the hallmark of their relationship. Highly recommended!” ~ Rose W. (5 STARS)
