5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful story 7. September 2014
Format:Taschenbuch
I waited a long but good time for this book, because I have read Stephen J. Stirlings first book and was excited to see, which wonders and stories he has for me.

Obviously English is not my first language, actually I started to learn it in June 13. Since then I worked in London for a law firm, had wonderful talks with a lot of people and watched movie after movie in English. Then came the time I read about Paladin.

In his story are some points which happened in my life too, like to understand and talk in a language I hardly know and he is a wonderful example what can happen, when you follow your feelings. You never know where they will lead you, but when you have trust in them, happiness will follow.

Stephen Stirling is a wonderful person, with a lot of life experience and a talent for writing and if you need any further proof how inspiring his work can be, his daughter is Lindsey Stirling and the people who gave his books a chance became friends of him.

Den Rest schreibe ich für die deutschen Interessenten dieses Buches.
Es wirkt auf den ersten Blick kurz, aber es hat eine gut und spannend geschriebene Geschichte und bietet interessante Charaktere.

Ich bin Mitglied der Kirche Jesu Christi - der Heiligen der letzten Tage und hatte daher viel Freude an den kurzen Erfahrungen und Beschreibungen die Stirling gewählt hat und empfand sie auch als passend, da es sich um einen wichtigen Bestandteil im Leben vom Hauptcharakter Paladin handelt, sodass ich auch als "normaler Leser" gut unterhalten wurde und mir diesen Teil nicht als aufgesetzt empfand.

Stephen Stirling ist ein sehr angenehmer Gesprächspartner und man spürt seine Erfahrung in seinen Büchern, sodass ich jedem dieses Buch empfehlen kann ...

4.0 von 5 Sternen this is a fun introduction to basic church teachings and culture 23. Juli 2014
Von man10380 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
An interesting taste of Mormon culture mixed with political intrigue in an international setting. The main character is an Indian Jones type seminary teacher who is dropped into unusual circumstances. He responds to his challenges by reading the scripturs, praying, and relying on the spirit. The results are anything but typical. For LDS readers, this book helps you realize that gospel principles can be applied in any setting. For non-LDS readers, this is a fun introduction to basic church teachings and culture.
5.0 von 5 Sternen It is a quick and powerful read I highly recommend. 27. Juli 2014

Social media brought my attention to this gem of a book a few months ago well before its projected release date. I picked it up a few weeks after it came out through electronic means, but it inspired me to sit down and write this review. Author Stephen J. Stirling weaves a masterful tale of political intrigue that inspires the reader to think deeply about the power faith can have on the current state of the world. His strong narrative voice uses a fictional Russian nation called Crimea to warn the world and Americans of the need for vigilance in these times, but more importantly, gives us a believable example of the miracles we can accomplish when we trust in God.

Protagonist Paladin Smith is a charming and likeable character, every bit as chivalrous as his name implies. He is called upon by a shady politician to retrieve his niece from the influence of a vile US Ambassador named Ian Keller. (Are there any politicians who are not Shady?)

Keller intends to take advantage of the political turmoil of Crimea for his own gain. Stirling highlights his main villain as dastardly from the start, and for me this was the book’s only small weakness. There is no mystery as to who is scheming for the downfall of the tiny former Soviet Union nation. However, this does not slow the book down at all as the author keeps the reader guessing as to the nature of Keller’s plans. In particular, the suspense builds as the reader wonders how exactly a meager California seminary teacher of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints can possibly stand a chance against someone so politically powerful.

At first, Paladin is reluctant to take the assignment. The girl in question is Victoria Grant, a former seminary student of Paladin’s with a troubled history. After protecting her from a would-be rapist, circumstances led to Paladin having to cut ties and give up his calling as a teacher for a time. Paladin expects ill feelings from his former student as a result. Not only that, but Paladin would have to leave his wife and home for an unknown land to do the bidding of people he does not trust. However, the encouragement of his wife, the blessing of his father, and the power of the Holy Spirit convince him to take the quest.

Persona Non Grata follows a slow and steady pace, building layers of intensity and adding palpable conflict as the plot thickens. Smith’s simple mission to retrieve a girl struggling with her faith becomes complicated as he is shoehorned by events and the will of God into going toe to toe with ambassadors, tyrannical Monarchs, powerful military leaders and even an archbishop. As the book winds towards its climax, I found myself on a spiritual thrill ride I had not experienced since LaHaye and Jenkins “Left Behind” series. It is a quick and powerful read I highly recommend.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved it!! 22. Juli 2014
Von Melanie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Prologue starts with a meeting between an American and a Russian aboard a yacht. Something nefarious is going on and the American is confident that no man and no power in the universe will stand in their way.

Next we meet Paladin Smith, a school teacher who uses unique methods to get the attention of his class. He is visited by Congressman Chase one day. Seven years earlier, the Congressman's niece, Victoria Grant, was in his seminary class. Congressman Chase wasn't thrilled with the attention Paladin gave his students and forced him to resign. Now the Congressman has come to Paladin to see if he will go to Crimea to get Victoria to return to the United States. Paladin goes, not knowing how he's going to accomplish this mission. And once he arrives in Crimea, not everyone is happy he's there.

This book is fantastic!! It held my interest from the first page and was hard to put down. Paladin is just a regular guy that agrees to do something that seems simple but he still has no idea how he's going to accomplish it. He didn't do everything perfectly but was able to figure out what the next step should be, and as he got more involved, he realized that Victoria was surrounded by men she didn't understand.

Victoria respects Paladin but is also wary since her perspective was that he deserted her before. Victoria is trying to make a good life for herself but is in over her head. Paladin's married so there's no romance between him and Victoria, which I thought worked well in this book. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough as I wanted to know what would happen next.

Some of the villains in the book were obvious and I found others to be hard to figure out. It kept me guessing until the end. There is an LDS element to this book, but it's not preachy. The author explains terms in footnotes to help the reader understand what he's referring to. There are some great messages to take from this book and it will appeal to anyone looking for a clean, suspenseful read!

I received a copy of this book to review. My opinion is 100% my own.

I loved it. Had to stay awake till I was done reading at 1:30 am. I like Paladin Smith. Most of the other characters too, though some I did not like which ones I was supposed too.

Persona Non Grata is a exciting adventure. LDS beliefs, and values were shared. They were also explained terms people might not know in different ink on my ARC ebook. Though the book is fiction a lot of things were right about the hot bed of trouble in the former Soviet Union. Dramatic, spiritual, action packed novel.

Paladin Smith is a seminary teacher and history teacher. He has been married for three years. I would have liked to have had him as a teacher. He cared about his students out of the classroom too. He is asked by someone he does not respect too go to Crimea and help his former student get out of trouble.

I liked how he went and talked it over with his wife and father before he decided what to do.

Paladin is not what you expect from a thriller hero. He follows his conscience and the spirit. He asks for help through prayer, he respects people and their beliefs.

The setting of the book was loosely set in Crimea. With Russia's army to go and take back the country. He started writing this 5 years ago. Before Russia really went in with its army into Crimea.

I would love to see Paladin again. If you want a good clean exciting thriller than read Persona Non Grata.

I was given this ebook to read from Cedar Fort and agreed in return to give honest review of it and be part of its blog tour.
5.0 von 5 Sternen There's a new hero in town, and his name is Paladin Smith... 6. August 2014
Von Matthew Carson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This novel is a quick and satisfying read. It is concisely written and tightly plotted. It's a testament to the author's skill that he can pack so much into a book in so modest a space. It's the literary equivalent of dynamite, folks. That's just to start out.

The story itself is timely, almost as though it were ripped from the headlines. I understand, however, that Stirling wrote this book well before the current troubles in Crimea, which only goes to demonstrate his prescience in the matter. Real-world parallels aside, the story is engaging and filled with political intrigue. Imagine this: a more gentle Indiana Jones in a Tom Clancy-esque thriller, and you can begin to get the vibe of this book.

But it doesn't stop there. There's also a thread of destiny and faith wound up in this narrative that I've not seen in mainstream fiction since perhaps Stephen King's book, The Stand. This isn't just a passing nod to it, or merely lip service, but a living, breathing party of the story. It's also interesting to note that the protagonist's faith is clearly defined as Mormon. Fiction seems to always use non-specific Protestantism or Catholicism as its 'go-to' religions, so it's refreshing to see a religious POV that is rarely, if ever represented in media.

So, this a promising start to what I hope is an ongoing/multiple volume series, and I hope Stirling continues it. I very much want to know where the adventures of Paladin Smith and Victoria Grant will lead.
