It’s been five-years since the release of Shudder, the second book in the Stitch Trilogy and I was a tad nervous going in. How much would I remember with over 1,000 books read between them? I needn’t have worried, Samantha Durante quickly pulled me back into this nail-biting science fiction dystopian with Struck.
Of Blood and Bone is the second novel in Nora Roberts, Chronicles of the One. In the first book we saw the world fall and learned of the Chosen One and of the prophecy. Thirteen years has passed and much has happened with the Uncanny, Purity and Raiders. Come witness Fallon become as we prepare for the battle between light and dark.
Beautifully written prose with haunting images and depth, Alyson Hagy pulled me into the dystopian world of Scribe, as narrator Shannon McManus’ southern twang enveloped me.
Smoke and Iron by Rachel Caine is the fourth novel in the Great Library series. As addictive as its predecessors. I could not set this down. Jess and his motley crew face their greatest danger yet. Jam packed from begin to end with plots, deception, danger and nail biting suspense. Gads I love this series.
The Unblessed Dead by Rhiannon Frater is the first in her new series, The Hidden Necromancer. Frightening and suspenseful The Unblessed Dead was an addictive page-turner.
STORM GATHERING by Rebecca Zanetti is the fourth book in the Scorpius Syndrome series, a dystopian romantic suspense following groups of survivors following a global virus that killed most of the population and infected others. Intense with a heavy dose of romance and heat this tale held me captive from beginning to end.
Nothing makes me happier than a stronger second book in a series and such was the case with A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir. This is the second novel in young adult dystopian fantasy series An Ember in the Ashes. (Which ironically was standalone, then duology and now there are two more books in the works) Brilliant, fast paced and exquisitely written the audio narrated by Katharine McEwan, Fiona Hardingham and Steve West was completely addictive.
