When Camels Fly by NLB Horton

I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.

The Synopsis:

when-camels-fly.jpgA mother’s fatal shot. A daughter’s deadly choice.

In Israel, archaeologist Grace Madison shoots her daughter’s abductor. Seconds later, a handsome shepherd drops from the sky to kill a second assassin. Their world crumbles in two blinks of an eye.

Unbeknownst to them, a fierce evil is destroying everything in its path—the unconventional path Grace and Maggie, a hydrologist, take as they struggle to right a wrong as old as time. But they soon discover time is running out. A vortex of intrigue and espionage threatens to sweep away everything and everyone they hold dear, extinguishing old flames even as it ignites new loves.

When the scale tips precariously toward disaster in the Middle East and beyond, family and friends with secrets of their own are exposed and millions of lives hang in the balance. Mother and daughter realize nothing is as it seems.

Even each other.

Because choosing what’s right is all that’s left.


When Camels Fly is a really good book. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and traveling across the Middle East with them.

The novel is written extremely well, with enough suspense to keep you reading, but ensuring that the story is completely clean, unlike most suspense authors. There were absolutely no sexual scenes, no language (not even taking God’s name in vain), and the action wasn’t gory in the least.

The characters were, for the most part, all Christians and portrayed it, but, they we not the “perfect Christians” that you tend to find in Historical Fiction. These characters messed up, asked God to forgive them, and then tried to do better, only to do worse, and I liked that about them. They seemed more real. I also enjoyed the simple family quarreling and the siblings picking on each other even adulthood, it lightened the book up!

So I give When Camels Fly 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it as a very entertaining read!
