The Given by Gary Clark – Book Blitz

I am thrilled to participate in the book blitz for The Given by Gary Clark, the first book in a brand new YA adventure series.

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT

In a world where the power to read minds is outlawed, can Jay ever find freedom?

Jay must hide her true abilities if she is to stay safe. But as her powers grow stronger and the authorities more intolerant, she knows that time is running out.

When Jay’s energy is detected by a powerful Reader, she has little choice but to take action. On the run with her friends, and just one step ahead of her pursuers, she must decipher the words of the Legend and reveal the secrets of her childhood stories if she is to find safety.

As she unravels the mystery, the Readers close in. Will Jay unlock the true potential of her power in time, and find the courage to fight her way through to the sanctuary of the Interland?

The Given is the first book in a YA adventure series. If you like an intriguing, grounded fantasy, a fast-paced adventure with characters coming to terms with inner conflicts, and battling powerful enemies, then you’ll enjoy this brand new dystopian YA adventure.

Suffer the Children by Craig DiLouie – Review

A perfect read for October.

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT

Suffer the Children presents a terrifying tale of apocalyptic fiction, as readers are introduced to Herod’s Syndrome, a devastating illness that suddenly and swiftly kills all young children across the globe.

Soon, they return from the grave… and ask for something unimaginable. Without that, they remain listless, vacant eyes staring at their parents. As soon as the children receive it, they become themselves again… But only for a short while.

As that commodity becomes scarce, the inevitable question for parents everywhere becomes: How far would you go to bring your child back?

Summary paraphrased from Goodreads.

Phoenix by T.S. Alexander – Book Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

In their quest to find an inhabitable human colony in space, the exoplanet surveyor, Endeavour, arrives in the Kepler 452 system. The crew of Endeavour is surprised to find an alien civilization, known as the Haillar, thriving there. Endeavour’s arrival triggers a first contact with the Haillar, who seem to be technologically backward and non-threatening. However, first impressions are seldom correct.

Aldeea, Kepler 452 to the humans, is a planet on the border of a star-faring empire dating back countless millennia. The Haillars can wield astonishing psychic powers called eka. They are also the most technologically developed species inhabiting the empire. However, their enemy—the Scourge—is even deadlier. A war has been going on between them for millennia.

The Endeavour has landed on Aldeea on the verge of one such imminent attack. Caught between two vastly superior enemies, the humans can survive only if they and the Haillars stand united. Easier said than done. Read Phoenix, the first book in the Queen’s Avatar Series, by T.S. Alexander to find out who wins this war.
