David was the Chosen Drone. He Didn't choose to be it. He was chosen.
David had a bright future. He was intelligent, likable, and fit. He lived in New York, where all the advantages were. How could he cope with trying to live a normal life?
Carlos Beltowers is a hard man, taking what he didn't earn and reaping what he did not sow. He wanted the Case that David protected. It meant immense power to him.
Bridgett was always on David's mind. If there was one thing he wanted more than anything else, it would be Bridgett.
Death could result from keeping the Case out of Beltowers' hands. David was in constant danger.

I had some extra time, so I read The Chosen Drone. Here's my review:
The Chosen Drone is a fast-paced, international thriller/fantasy. David, a young man, must not only deal with finding a career and love, but he must also solve the mystery of the case he inherited. I read it in one sitting, and definitely give it five stars!
The Chosen Drone is a story about a young man who unwittingly gets chosen to be the bearer of a case that has mystical powers and connections to a bygone world.
I found this to be fascinating. I would like to get more of this author’s books. Interesting storyline and well-thought-through characters.
Carlos Beltowers must get the Case at all costs. It didn't matter to him who he used or stepped on to get it.
The Triads were involved and so was the Roman Catholic Church, but none of them counted on The Sons of the East to have the interest, influence, and finance, to be a player in this game of possession
War blossomed around every corner of Europe at the beginning of the 1900s.
It was a time of Mystics and Mysticism.
Alexander Drummond arrived in Russel, New Zealand, with his parents; from Dumfries in Scotland. Russel at that time was the Capital City; a raggle-taggle of a place filled with hopefuls, the lost, and the leftovers. In 1896 Alex was 8 years old and orphaned, his mother had died and his father was the victim of Blackbirding.
In 1914 the Great War broke out. The war to end all wars. Alex enlisted in the Navy as a Seaman and soon moved up the ranks to become an officer. It was during this time he took possession of the Case.
Johann Holzel was connected to the administrative side of the Holy See. He was also tied in with the Great Lodge. Holzel knew of the existence of the Case and the origins of its contents. The Roman Catholic Church wanted it back
After the war, Alex met Agnes (his foster parent's caregiver), and they married and had one child. Katy was adventurous and found her husband on a trip to New York.
Alex meet his grandson David Chen when he was in his nineties. At that time he passed the Case on to him. David accepted it as an heirloom of his family and treasured it

I am an adventurer. I have always been an adventurer as long as I can remember. Always going around the corner to see what is there. Life has taught me to be cautious of leaping over the fence to see if the grass is better. So I have learnt many precautionary tricks, like check out the surroundings before going head first into any situation.
Anything can be an adventure. Looking into a nearby forest or taking a trip into a Country you have never experienced before. I have been fortunate to have gone to many places and lived there for a short time and been able to search out the makings of their society while taking in the sights, sounds, food and culture. It has been fun and given rise to my love of writing.
Since I was a child I have loved to write stories. My imagination is like that. The teacher may not of appreciated this, he only commented on my grammar but I took great pleasure in telling my tales. Sort of an innermost satisfaction.
I hope I can convey to you my love for telling stories, just like I did for my children when they were growing up

Surfieron is an inhabitable planet in the W26 area of space. It was discovered back in 2017, and it was shown to have signs of liquid water. When the first explorers arrived they found other groups of humanoid species living there. Some were primitive others had technological advancements. Soon settlers arrived with high ideals. They were Onewayers. Since then a thriving community has evolved with people coming from all over the Earth; as Earth disintegrated under meteor showers, the division and dissension of society, and plagues.
Five generations later have we learned anything?
Henriek descended from the great Teratama, the founder and Chief Herdsman of the Suotsuy nation. He knew little about his heritage, because his mother had assimilated into the Celtonic society, and as far he was aware he never knew his father. Growing up wasn't easy in an evolving society.
Thomas Tutanakye took control of the developing country of Gambolina by stealth. He was ambitious and desired to rule supremely. Piece by piece, and bit by bit he shaped the proletariat into a submissive force. That wasn't enough for him, he wanted to be a Divine ruler.
His wife, Jocelin had her own agenda. Bored of a husband who was only interested in his own ego-driven ambition, she slipped into a disposition of satisfying her own desires.
What would you do you if your life was threatened? Not imminent death, but your lifestyle, your family, your child, your home. Would you go to the ends of the earth to make things right? Many of us wouldn’t. But some of us…

After trying to get help through all of the legal avenues, Leonard is getting nowhere and decides to take matters into his own hands. His own, very competent and angry hands.
As a young First Nations man with his own history in his back pocket, Leonard takes hostage a bus load of tourists bound for the Alberta oil sands. His purpose is to find a way to get the nation’s attention - the world’s eyes on his concerns…on the truth.
What Leonard is not prepared for is his own truth that he encounters during this ordeal. One that shows him that love, trust, and forgiveness really does exist.
Victoria lives in the rural Canadian Rockies with her husband where they regularly enjoy hiking, kayaking, and cycling.
Could a relationship forged in the heat of the moment last?
Peter was determined to do things right, more than once he stood up for Aroha.
Nigel was determined to break them up. He claimed a prior right to Aroha.
Could Aroha please them both?
Would Nigel completely destroy Aroha, so nobody could have her?
Aroha's Cowboy is a wonderful read.
The author manages to pull the reader into the story
right from the start.
It’s a love story but more than that,
it is a story about human frailties and heartbreak.
The writing brings different cultures to life
and the needs of a young man to experience them.
I just finished and I did really enjoy it! Beautiful and tragic story! I loved all the New Zealand references too.

Dan Davidson - Author
Aroha's Cowboy is a wonderful read. The author manages to pull the reader into the story right from the start. It’s a love story but more than that, it is a story about human frailties and heartbreak. The Protagonist, Peter, is a complex but vulnerable character. The reader is taken on a journey from the United States to New Zealand, to “Down Under” and eventually returning to the United States. The author’s description is fantastic, you feel like you are there experiencing it all, just like Peter. The pace of the narrative is quick and holds the reader’s interest from beginning to end.

Review by Dan Davidson
I read this book. It is really good and really different.
This bookstore has many exciting novels which can be obtained at Amazon books
Society is unchangeable. As decade after decade passes, one thing remains sadly the same, human nature. Modern inventions improve our lives, but many people's behavior stays the same. Bullying, racism, and antisemitism remain firmly in place. This story examines those same behaviors during the decade of the 1950s.
Teenagers were exposed to this daily, and each teen handled it their way. There were victims and villains: the helpless and the heroes. "So Gently Goes the Hummingbird" will do everything possible to break your heart and joyfully heal it. It's a story that will bring tears to your eyes and remind you, no matter what your age, of your first love and the wonderful feeling it gave you.
D. Davidson was born in New Jersey. In his early years, he grew up in Sunnyside, Queens, N.Y., and attended P.S. 150. Dan moved to Long Island in 1955 (the year the Brooklyn Dodgers finally won a World Series). He enjoyed his teenage years growing up in the small town of Farmingville. After high school, at age 17, Dan enlisted in the United States Air Force. He met his co-author, R. Marcano, while stationed in South Korea in 1963. After returning home, their lives moved in different directions. By chance, they found each other again via the Internet and met in Las Vegas in the summer of 2012. After going down memory lane, they wrote the book "Butterfly Wish." Although it's a work of fiction, it's based loosely on some incidents they encountered or heard about while serving in South Korea. They pull no punches in telling the story. It is brutally honest but not intended to be offensive to anyone. D. Davidson has been writing stories for years as screenplays "a tough industry to crack." He decided to turn some of his scripts into novels. He and his co-author write primarily historical fiction because they believe understanding history makes us all wiser and better human beings. The second novel, 'Twice Upon a Time," is a paranormal narrative about time travel and going back to the past. Their third book, "Soul of Jubie Walker," is a Paranormal/Reincarnation story, and their newest novel, "So Gently Goes the Hummingbird," is a coming-of-age story about teenagers in the 1950s. There are several more historical novels on the horizon. Dan and Rich look forward to sharing many other great stories with you. Presently D. Davidson resides in San Tan Valley, Arizona, with his wife of fifty-seven years, Kathy. The couple has three sons, eight grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
