I really hate to do this to you--keeping you in suspense for five months. However, I’m convinced that you should be informed early. You know you can take it. After all, you waited years for all the "Harry Potter" books to be released, and that was just magical kid stuff.

Who’s going to provide the magic to thwart political revolution, Batman?

I can see this as a blockbuster in the making.

International Latino Book Award-winning author, Raul Ramos y Sanchez, is in the process of writing a best-selling trilogy, with the first release, "America Libre," scheduled for July 2009. It is an action-packed story of love, ethnic turmoil, and intrigue; plus, the author adds deeply moving, thought-provoking commentary. Ultimately, you will get absolutely hooked on the entire trilogy--"American Libre," "El Nuevo Alamo," and "Pancho Land."

"America Libre" is the best dramatic fiction that book sellers will have to offer you this summer; with the economy stifling vacations and other expensive leisure activity, you deserve a good read.

The events in "America Libre" take place in the second decade of the twenty-first century. As the immigration crisis reaches the boiling point, once-peaceful Latino protests explode into rioting. Cities across the nation are in flames. Anglo vigilantes bent on revenge launch drive-by shootings in the barrios, wantonly killing young and old.

Exploiting the turmoil, a congressional demagogue succeeds in passing legislation that transforms the nation’s teeming inner-city barrios into walled-off Quarantine Zones. In this chaotic landscape, Manolo Suarez is struggling to provide for his family. Under the spell of a beautiful Latina radical, the former U.S. Army Ranger eventually finds himself questioning his loyalty to his wife--and his country.

In "El Nuevo Alamo," the sequel to "America Libre," Hispanic insurgents are joined by conventional forces from the U.N. during a protracted war of independence. As of this writing, there is no release date announced.

And in "Pancho Land," the final installment of the "America Libre" trilogy, the storyline follows the struggles against tyranny and corruption in the fledgling Hispanic Republic of North America.

This is one for your "must read" list!
