About the Author
"The Coalition has a lot of good action and suspense, an unusual female assassin, and the potential to be another The Day After Tomorrow [the runaway bestseller by Allan Folsom]."
--James Patterson, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
"A rigorous historical novel that reads like the best World War II fiction...a sharply entertaining, in-depth tale of desert warriors."
--Kirkus Reviews (for Lions of the Desert)
"Lions of the Desert is a character-driven historical adventure featuring daring actions and an intense rivalry...a nuanced and insightful historical novel."
"The stuff of which blockbuster movies are made, Lions of the Desert is an impressively researched, deftly written, and exceptionally well presented epic that will have particular appeal for World War II military buffs."
--Midwest Book Review
"Told through multiple viewpoints in a series of vivid scenes, Lions of the Desert is rather like a multi-character miniseries (a miniseries I'd love to see!)...Terrific storytelling."
--Historical Novel Society
"When I read a book about World War II these days, I look for something new...Lions of the Desert by Samuel Marquis delivered this in spectacular fashion. He has written another great book about the war that we should never forget."
--Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite (5-Star Review)
"Spies of the Midnight Sun is not only a skillful, rapid-fire historical spy thriller, but also a fine source on one of the least-known and most heroic chapters of the Second World War."
"Marquis is a student of history, always creative, [and] never boring...A good comparison might be Tom Clancy."
"A simply riveting read from beginning to end, Spies of the Midnight Sun is impressively informed and informative, and a work of solidly researched history."
--Midwest Book Review
"Samuel Marquis's Spies of the Midnight Sun weaves historical truth with masterful storytelling in an action-packed and intriguing tale of covert spy operations during World War II."
"Altar of Resistance is a gripping and densely packed thriller dramatizing the Allied Italian campaign...reminiscent of Herman Wouk's The Winds of War."
"Marquis is the new Follett, Silva, and Clancy rolled into one."
--Prof. J.R. Welch, Editor of Dispatches from Fort Apache
"Marquis grabs my attention right from the beginning and never lets go."
--Gov. Roy R. Romer, 39th Governor of Colorado
"The Coalition starts with a bang, revs up its engines, and never stops until the explosive ending...Perfect for fans of James Patterson, David Baldacci, and Vince Flynn."
"In his novels Blind Thrust and Cluster of Lies, Samuel Marquis vividly combines the excitement of the best modern techno-thrillers, an education in geology, and a clarifying reminder that the choices each of us make have a profound impact on our precious planet."
--Ambassador Marc Grossman, Former U.S. Under Secretary of State
