Last week was a bit of a let down as far as my book choices go. I had 10 books picked out and only 3 were good enough to share with you. I wonder if it is time for me to switch gears for a bit and try some reads from different genre's? We will see what the next week brings. :)
Here we go:
Affliction by Adrienne Lecter - 5 Stars *****
Something is rotten in the state of California…
The dawning civil war has ended in a truce. Scavengers and traders all over the country are settling down for the long, hard winter to come. With their new camp outside the maze of New Angeles at the coast growing every day, Bree, Nate, and the gang have their hands full—yet something is not quite right. Maybe one last run before the winter is all that’s needed to cure that itch. What could possibly go wrong?
The Savage Earth by P T Hylton & Jonathan Benecke
4 Stars ****
If humans want to take the Earth back, they'll need to survive the night.
It's been over a century since the humans lost the war for Earth. Cities have been reclaimed by nature, and the planet is quiet and empty by day. At night, feral vampires—more beast than man—roam the lands, hungry for blood.
The few thousand surviving humans live on a massive airship that circles the Earth, moving with the rotation of the planet so it's always in sunlight.
Alexandria Goddard is a member of the elite Ground Mission Team, a group tasked with making dangerous runs to the planet's surface for the supplies needed to keep the ship airborne. But even as the team fights for their people's survival, dangerous forces are working against them. A growing movement aboard the airship believes it's time for humans to resettle the Earth, and they are willing to go to extreme measures to make their vision a reality.
As the situation aboard the ship becomes more desperate, Alex and her team discover a terrifying secret about the vampires infesting the Earth.
Immune by Jacqueline Druga - 4 Stars ****
The initial infection ripples across the globe infecting half of the world’s population. A small fraction of the ill are fortunate and die quickly from the disease, the remainder are condemned to a living death on earth.
The virus turns the infected into mindless and violent beings, intent on the kill and spreading the infection to those who are not immune.
One bite, one scratch.
The virus is an anomaly. It moves too quickly for a cure.
The world quickly transforms into a darkened place, besieged with violence and sickness. Hope against extinction is in the hands of the immune. They can walk freely among the infected, fight to extinguish them, while protecting those who are still at risk.
Archaeologist, Grace Howard is one of the immune. While she dreams of traveling the world, learning about lost civilizations, the reality of being a wife and mother, kept her saddled to a local job at the museum dusting dinosaur bones and relics.
Grace finds herself with a small group of survivors, some immune, some not. Together they must struggle to live day to day in a dangerous world, while protecting those who can still fall prey to the infected. They must decide what is best. Fight it out or hide until eventually and hopefully, the virus runs its course.
That's it. I am excited to get started on this weeks book choices.
I hope you are reading something wonderful. If you have any suggestions for me, please leave me a comment.
Thanks for stopping by,
