The Sniper

After skiing in an unsafe area, Max’s friend Sayid ends up with a busted leg. On top of that, he loses his late father’s beads on the mountainside, and Max promises to try and find them. But when Max returns to the mountain, he sees an unusual sight: a monk skiing down the slope, and a sniper aiming a gun at him. On instinct, Max shouts to the monk and unwittingly becomes involved in a complicated mystery.


The Monk’s Secret

An avalanche hits, and the monk rescues Max from the blanket of snow. But when the edge of a cliff falls away, the monk falls to his death, leaving Max with a clue to his attacker’s motives. As Max and his friends follow the monk’s clues, Max must learn who he can trust, and who is a traitor. When Max’s allies get picked off, he realizes how much danger he’s really in. Especially now that the world thinks he is responsible for the monk’s death.


The Bottom Line

Ice Claw is a complicated adventure. It’s a quest to uncover the truth about an upcoming environmental disaster. The book drags at times, and is hard to follow at others. But those moments are interspersed with deadly action. This is definitely a book for boys, or for girls who love action, mystery and violent killers.

If some girls want to walk on the street with literally no clothes on, is that fine too?Thats their way of expressing themselves! But then, they are lost anyway, so who cares?It doesnt matter if you are gay or not, if you are not a Christian!  THE BIBLE:Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the ######## immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. SO FLY A KITE if you think you can be a gay christian. Now, now. Calm down. And, everyone is entitled to their opinion. But, you, young lady, have carried yourself around on this forum as a heavy homophobic whether you would like to admit it or not.   How someone else dresses shouldn't concern you. Just because someone might wear more than another, doesn't always make them any less modest. And just because someone has one religion than another, doesn't make much difference. Does it alter your life in a personal way? Does someone being gay alter your life in a personal way? Or what about if someone chooses to wear a skirt over pants? No, it doesn't. Because it shouldn't concern you. Here's a clue: Not everyone believes in the same things that you do nor are they going to view it the exact same, Christian or not. If I believed in God, but I didn't see things the exact same way that you do, does that make me any less of a believer?   My, my, you really like the phrase "go fly a kite." Anyways, hate to break it to you, but sexuality actually has nothing to do with what religion you decide to be as well. You can be gay and Christian while you can be bisexual and Muslim.

I believe that if they dont get saved and quit theyre freaking lifestyle, they will go to hell. Dont you dare call me ####  phobic, either. I am not afraid of gays. homophobia; dislike or prejudice against homosexual people. i'm a christian and i believe that everyone should have the right to actively live the lifestyle they choose. what did gay people ever do to you? what's wrong with love? it's people like you who give christian's a bad name. it's 2017, get a grip of your prejudice ways! god would be ashamed at this kind of behaviour. your bigotry makes me sick!
