Rise written by Mira Grant and narrated by Christine Lakin and John Glouchevitch delivers eight novellas surrounding the world created in the Newsflesh trilogy in one collection. Two of these stories have never been published sharing Michael and Stacy Mason’s story and a fan requested epilogue for Georgia and Shaun Mason.
The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin is the third and final book of the Passage trilogy. The wait was long, expectations were high and attempts to savor this last book failed. The City of Mirrors was a brilliant finale to this epic post-apocalyptic fiction. Unique and brilliantly written the dark and light clash for one last battle as our future is determined.
Mercury Striking is the first novel in Rebecca Zanetti Scorpius Syndrome series an intense post-apocalyptic romantic suspense that I devoured. Zanetti is an author I have been meaning to try and when I saw this was a new series in a post-apocalyptic setting, I knew it was fate. Action packed, with strong alpha males and snarky, intelligent women Zanetti started this series off with a bang.
Some books just naturally translate to audio and suck the reader into their story. Thicker Than Blood by Madeline Sheehan and Claire C. Riley is one such novel. Narrated by C.J. Bloom I quickly became caught up in this post-apocalyptic zombie tale and the characters within. Friendship, survival and a world that seems to have lost its humanity Thicker Than Blood will help alleviate withdrawal symptoms for fans of the Walking Dead.
I was very fortunate to receive an advanced finished copy of Symbiont by Mira Grant. It is the second book in her Parasitology series that started as a duology and is now a trilogy!! After the release of Parasite, Grant’s fans demanded more. Fans wanted more details, fleshed-out characters and world building. Grant obliged and I am ever so grateful. Symbiont changed my perception, raised questions, and had me holding my breath as we plunged deeper into this apocalyptic nightmare.
Lina Gardiner’s Gift of Prophecy is a post-apocalyptic tale filled with strange creatures, a fearless girl, a prophecy and two brothers who must overthrow a ruthless ruler to save the world. Gardiner captured my attention from the first pages and held me riveted as she painted this world and brought her characters to life. Mini review: Captivating, colorful and action-packed.
