With high school finished for the summer, Nick looks forward to visiting his aunt and uncle in New Jersey. What awaits him is a heat wave like no other – and the last two Greywings on the planet. Nick has an innate ability to train horses but will he be able to translate his amazing skill to these teenage dragons?

The steaming soup of mid-summer heats up tempers and tests resolve as Nick vies with fellow trainers, Keith and Maxie, for mastery over their new charges. The dragons, Nikita and Michael, typical teenagers themselves, have other ideas.

Nick treads a torturous path through a minefield of competing demands: the expectations of his aunt and uncle, recalcitrant horses, the Academy’s female students and the overwhelming egos of Nikita and Michael. One small mistake erupts into a conflagration that hurls everyone into a race against time and the overwhelming forces of nature.

Suspense – Succession

Succession
Author: Herbert Lobsenz
Publisher: LFOD Books
ISBN: 978-1463632892
Pages: 324
Published: November 2011

The time is 1963. The place is Manhattan. To pay his dying father’s hospital bills, ex-Army Ranger Jake Garrison must accept another company downsizing assignment. He’s expert at the job, but hates the pain, and this time the target is the iconic Kensington Typewriter Company. Worse, the paymaster will be “vulture capitalist” Charles Carnusty, whom Garrison suspects of seducing his wife, Diana. She is a top executive at Colepool Publishers, another nineteenth century icon, which recently made the mistake of going public and is now feeling twentieth century financial pressures. Diana blames Garrison for failing to make her pregnant.

As Garrison overturns stones inside Kensington, he meets a cast of executives, workers and wives who have given their careers to a company that allowed itself to become trapped in a doomed technology.

Diana becomes more frigid; their circle of her literary and artistic friends, all pursuing their own versions of the 1960s American dream, turn more distant and hostile.
Racism, feminism, poverty, corporate outsourcing, the line between vulture and venture capitalism all come into focus as President Kennedy is gunned down in Dallas and Kitty Genovese is stabbed to death in Kew Gardens. When Diana unexpectedly becomes pregnant, Garrison is convinced he is not the father.

An abrasive look at the era of “Mad Men,” Succession’s cast of vividly drawn characters speak a dialogue one reviewer called “laced with testosterone in a novel whose every page has a distinctive, almost uncomfortable realism.”

“Succession” is Lobsenz’s second novel. His first was the Harper Prize winning and best selling “Vangel Griffin.”
