ARC Review: Dogma of the Five Kingdoms (Book 2 of A Five Kingdoms of Cordizal Series)

Dogma of the Five Kingdoms by Charles K. Jordan In Dogma of the Five Kingdoms , Book 2 of his Five Kingdoms of Cordizal series, Charles K. Jordan again plunges us straightaway into the events unfolding on the continent of Cordizal. Though the war between the Five Kingdoms and the undead Scourge continues, the focus in Book 2 is on the unfolding scheme of the mysterious figure Ta'Lin and his followers. As the book unfolds we see Ta'Lin working to resurrect powerful magik from the past. His scheme threatens to bring an end to the Five Kingdoms themselves, and may lead to a fate worse than death for their citizens. Book 2 picks up right where Book 1 left off. (My review of the first book is here .) While there is the occasional bit of backstory provided, most of the action proceeds apace. The Kingdoms of the Grang, the Nawahl, the Ramons, Arzans and Xandrans, and the ongoing war, are taken as a given. Some of the happenings in Book 1 are alluded to, but not delved into or repeate

Review: Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America

Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America by Michael Eric Dyson

Written as a sermon, this is a fairly short and clearly articulated, engaging read.

The book was published in 2017, and many reviews by White readers include words like "revelation" that, from the perspective of late 2020 look dated and out of touch. Our year this year has been filled with incidents like those that inspired this sermon; incidents leading to protest and discussion on race injustice in America.

My hope is that out of our collective experience this year we are all able to come together to bring about a brighter and more hopeful future for all of our fellow Americans, Black and White. Toward the end of the book, Dyson includes some suggestions for actions that we as individuals can take to help bring that future about.

I rate Tears We Cannot Stop Four Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐.
