ABOUT THE BOOK

“It happened fast. Thirty-two minutes for one world to die, another to be born.”

An epic and gripping tale of catastrophe and survival, The Passage is the story of Amy—abandoned by her mother at the age of six, pursued and then imprisoned by the shadowy figures behind a government experiment of apocalyptic proportions. But Special Agent Brad Wolgast, the lawman sent to track her down, is disarmed by the curiously quiet girl and risks everything to save her. As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escape—but he can’t stop society’s collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.

Book Review: Forbidden Temptation by R.L. Kenderson (Forbidden, Book #3) Kindle book

51FRvg6qQOL._SY346_To say they had a complicated past would be an understatement.

Human, Mackenzie (Kenzie) Swanson, and cat shapeshifter, Sawyer Lennar, were kidnapped by mistake and were able to escape their kidnappers and hide out for a while.  Sawyer hated humans so when he got amnesia from a blow to the head and his personality changed for the better, Kenzie was grateful for small favors.  In the past, he was downright cruel to her, but now he was sweet and accommodating.  How long would this last, why did he hate humans so much and why did she let him mark her?

Book review: Sunshine by Robin McKinley (9780142411100)

2347c307062eb5f593233375477434d414f4141This is not one of your typical vampire books. In fact, it is more about Rae “Sunshine” Seddons, a young baker, who happens to get thrown into a situation where she actually saves a vampire named Constantine by using an unlikely power of her own…sunlight. The pairing is surprising and their friendship and what the consequences mean are written in a way that is clear and interesting to the reader.

I read a lot of books and many of them don’t surprise me like this one did. That is what made this novel a joy to discover.

I want to thank my friend Annie who let me borrow this book. She truly has good taste in authors.
