As you know, on Fridays I bring you new books and authors. Today I bring you a writer who’s visited us quite a few times and who’s a great blogger and reviewer. Christoph Fischer. I’ll let you check his author page. And don’t miss the big piece of news at the end!
I’m very intrigued by his newest book as I’ve really loved Sebastian but so far my reading list hasn’t caught up yet. But I hope you might be able to get to it before me, because the subject matter is fascinating.

She locates the man whose touch could heal her but finds he has retired from the limelight and refuses to treat her. Erica, consumed by stage four pancreatic cancer, is desperate and desperate people are no longer logical nor are they willing to take no for an answer. Arpan has retired for good reasons. casting more than the shadow of a doubt over his abilities.

It has fantastic comments and I thought about sharing a few with you, but I’ll let you read them yourself, because one of Christoph’s books is included in a box-set with novels by many other authors that I’d be happy to feature here at some point too, so I thought I’d take the chance and bring it to you as an incredible opportunity to discover these talents that might be new to you.

I prepare my posts a few days in advance when I can, and on the same week when the post was due to come out I read one by Christoph about his new book.
In Search of the Revolution is currently available in preorder here.
In 1918 young Zacharias Nielsen boards a ship in Copenhagen to join the Red Guards in the Finnish Civil War.Encouraged by an idolised teacher with communist leanings, he follows the call for help from his Nordic Comrades, despite his privileged background.
His best friend, Ansgar, has opposing political ideals to Zacharias but, for his own personal reasons, finds himself soon stuck in the Scandinavian North with Zacharias and Raisa, a Finnish nurse who helps them in their new life.
Through the years that follow the brotherly war the trio see the political landscape in Finland and Europe change as Communists and Fascists try to make their mark and attempt to change the world order.
Our heroes must find their own personal and ideological place in these turbulent times as friendship, honour, idealism and love triangles bring out some personal truths.
The book spans almost thirty years of history and the various Finnish conflicts: Civil War, Winter War, Continuation War and the Lapland War. Watch the political and personal self discovery of characters in search of their own revolution.
Just in case you want more information on the book, including an excerpt, I leave you the link to Christoph’s post. And if you don’t know his blog, I recommend it. You’ll have great insights into his writing, his work, and also the many books he reviews. He’s always hard at work not only with his own books but promoting those of others.
Thanks to Christoph and the fellow authors in ‘At Odds with Destiny’ for their books, thanks to all of you for reading, and you know, if you’ve enjoyed it, like, comment, share, and CLICK!
