About Dale Amidei

Dale Amidei lives and writes on the wind- and snow-swept Northern Plains of South Dakota. Novels about people and the perspectives that guide their decisions are the result. It features faith-based themes set in the real world, which is occasionally profane or violent. His characters are realistically portrayed as caught between heaven and earth, not always what they should be, nor what they used to be. In this way they are like all of us. As Dale says:

"A novel begins with having something to say. Everything that comes next, developing the characters, the plot, the first draft, the editing, the polishing, all follow this. First have something to say, and then start writing."

Review by: Tracy Falbe on July 24, 2013 :
Excellent novel. The writing is absolutely fantastic. It's not even the type of novel I usually read, but it was almost impossible to put down. Every sentence just pulled me along to the next piece of action. All the characters were interesting. I felt empathy for the main character Jon Anthony. "Matt Kameldorn" was an enigma. He reminded me of the main character from Apocalypse Now, but he was less tormented. Really recommend it to anyone who appreciates gifted writing.

Review by: Seraphim Press on April 22, 2013 :
A heart pounding rideā€¦

This book grabs you by the seat of the pants and won't let you go as it drags you by through the IED-laden minefields of Iraq along with the hero/protagonist Jon Anthony and his spooky Special Forces protector, Matt Kameldorn. Along the way we are given fascinating, credible-sounding glimpses into the minds and motivations of not only the Al Qaida operatives, but also some of the ordinary people and tribal leaders who eventually rally against the foreign terrorists in their midst. I will definitely be continuing on with this series, but first, I think I'll go write me some serious Kameldorn fanfiction :-)
