Bleak Devotion

Bleak Devotion by Gemma Drazin
YA Futuristic Dark Fantasy
Published: 31st March 2014

Jessica doesn't know how long it's been, only that it seems like forever since she's allowed her feelings to show. Ever since they attacked her city. Monsters which appear human but are void of any expression, and seem bent on destroying all signs of sentiment in others. Their lethal blades shred anyone who shows even the slightest emotion.

After her only remaining friend is killed, Jessica flees the city hoping to find a place where emotions aren't fatal. A place to grieve those she lost and live out her meager existence. When she discovers the world of the emotionless creatures isn't what she believes, the love it leads her to may also be the path to her own death.

Excerpt

Jessica clamped her teeth together and took a deep breath. “I can stay calm if he can.”

Zach shook his head. “I don't think—”

“Let her speak with me.” A deep male voice resonated through the crowded hallway.

Throwing on an emotionless mask, Jessica slowly shifted her body toward the voice. A tall male, whom she could only assume was the monster they called Blade, had managed to sneak down the stairs and stood mere inches from her. If she reached out, she would be able to touch him. The thought disturbed her and she struggled to maintain her composure.

The only thing she wanted to do was run screaming at this monster who had ruined her life. Every emotion that she'd been forced to hold in since the invasion begged to be launched at him. Grief. Torture. Outrage. Terror. All of it, she wanted him to feel. She wanted the rage to coat him inside and out, no matter what it would do to him.

Panic by Lauren Oliver - Review

Panic by Lauren Oliver

PanicTitle: Panic

Series: N/A

Author: Lauren Oliver

Published: 
4th March 2014 by Harper Collins

E-copy from Netgalley for my honest review


Synopsis:

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.

Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.

Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.

For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.





My Review

I wasn't sure what this book was going to be like having seen a lot of mixed reviews and not sure what exactly the book was about. The first few chapters were very confusing for me as I'd forgotten the book's synopsis and really couldn't work out what was going on. I also didn't feel any great connection to the characters early on, but I warmed up to them as the book went along. So while the opening wasn't sound, as I progressed through the story I began to enjoy it more.

The game of Panic was an interesting idea and it was something I could imagine a group of teenagers doing. It's definitely not something I'd take part in though! The only thing I couldn't believe about the game was that it lasted all those years, with all those injuries and deaths, without the cops and parents knowing or doing anything. I know I'd be shocked if a kid suddenly became about $50,000 richer, but it appears that is the norm in Carp.

I thought some of the information in this book was unnecessary, I don't mean over-descriptive, big info-dumps, I mean a few lines here and there that really didn't need to be included. Such as Heather mentioning period blood and eating scabs. This was just thrown in for no apparent reason and only made me feel less inclined to like Heather and the book.

I found the story to be very interesting with a lot of good ideas, but the characters fell a bit flat. I liked Dodge more than Heather as a character, but his relentless focus on revenge put me off really liking him, he was a little to uncaring about his actions. I think the ending was just too 'Hollywood' and it really didn't seem to fit with the grittiness of those last few chapters, but overall I still enjoyed the story and was happy to see it through to the end. If you're a fan of Lauren Oliver I think you should give this book a go!

Sunset Rising (Sunset Rising, #1)

Sunset Rising (Sunset Rising #1) by S.M. McEachern
YA Dystopia
Published: 12th November 2013

February 2024: Desperate to find refuge from the nuclear storm, a group of civilians discover a secret government bio-dome. Greeted by a hail of bullets and told to turn back, the frantic refugees stand their ground and are grudgingly permitted entry. But the price of admission is high.

283 years later… Life as a slave in the Pit had never been easy, but for seventeen-year-old Sunny O’Donnell it was quickly careening out of control. Her mother was killed in the annual spring Cull, leaving her alone with a father who decided to give up on life.  It’s not that she blamed him for grieving, but if they didn’t earn enough credits to keep their place inside the Pit, they would be kicked out into a world still teeming with radiation. That left her to earn the credits for both of them.  It didn’t help that her boyfriend, Reyes Crowe, was pressuring her to get married and abandon her father.

Sunny didn’t think life could get any worse, until she was forced upstairs to the Dome to serve and entertain the elite at a bachelor party. That's where she met Leisel Holt, the president's daughter, and her fiancé, Jack Kenner. Now Sunny is wanted for treason. If they catch her, she'll be executed.  

She thought Leisel's betrayal was the end for her…but it turns out it was just the beginning.

In the (un)Likely Event of an Apocalypse

The Apocalypse. The end of civilization as we know it. Maybe even the complete annihilation of the Earth.

The thought is terrifying and has fascinated generations for decades. There have been thousands of predictions on how, why and when the world as we know it will come to an abrupt end. It’s the stuff that blockbuster films and best selling novels are made of (mine included!). But could an apocalypse actually happen? What are the odds? And more importantly, can the human race survive the end of the world? As the author of a post-apocalyptic series, I’ve actually done some research on apocalyptic scenarios and here are a few of my thoughts:

Nuclear War: Anyone who has read my novel, “Sunset Rising”, knows nuclear war is my apocalypse of choice (I say tongue in cheek). Consider the domino effect of just one nuclear explosion set off above a city: a) buildings and dwellings leveled and set on fire; b) the instantaneous death of anyone inhabiting the city; c) as the city is engulfed in flames, oil and gas stores (in vehicles and tanks) explode; e) the cloud from the firestorm rises into the atmosphere, blocking out the suns rays—the beginning of a nuclear winter; f) radiation fall-out. One nuclear warhead exploding over one city has the capability to wipe out millions of people.

There are more than 17,000 known nuclear weapons in the world, many of which are more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

In the (un)likely event of a global nuclear war, you might want to be digging out a bunker in your backyard and stocking it with canned food and clean water… In the meantime, you can join campaigns and groups dedicated to abolishing nuclear weapons globally.

Earth hit by an asteroid: How big does an asteroid need to be to cause global destruction? NASA says anywhere from 1 to 2 km in diameter and up will likely end civilization. Regional damage at the collision site would cause the most immediate destruction, but it’s the resulting “impact winter” possibly followed by an “ultraviolet spring” that would end life as we know it. For comparison, the asteroid responsible for the mass extinction of the dinosaurs was approximately 10 kilometers (6 miles) in diameter.

So what are the odds of Earth suffering a meteorite impact? Pretty good, actually. Asteroids have collided with our planet in the past so there’s every reason to expect it will be hit again. In fact, on March 5, 2014, a meteor approximately 98 feet in diameter—big enough to cause regional damage—passed between the Earth and Moon.

In the (un)likely event of a meteorite impact, those people who already have a bunker dug-out to survive the nuclear war have the best chance for survival. Although, if you live in a coastal area subject to tsunamis from the event, forget the bunker and head to high ground. If you’d like a heads-up before the big bang, check in with the “Near Earth Object Program” here: http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/risk/

Zombies: Can a zombie apocalypse actually happen?! The movie, “I am Legend” made it somewhat believable since people were turned into zombies via a rabies-type virus. And here’s the other thing that makes “I am Legend” mind-blowingly scary—the zombies could run fast! Biologists keep warning us we’re overdue for a pandemic. Could the zombie flu be the next one?

In the (un)likely event of a zombie apocalypse, you’ll need to be in good physical shape, know how to use a rifle, and make sure you’re a fast runner…or at least faster than your mate ;)

Well, those are just a few ways our civilization could suffer an apocalypse. Are you prepared?

Synopsis:

*This is NOT a standalone. It's the followup to The Line That Binds*

While searching for answers involving Stockton Estate's stone well, Ben Shadows and LJ Wayde discover one truth: the curse is real. 

Unfortunately, that truth has LJ facing the same fate that's been tied to her bloodline for generations. The curse has given her the ability to help others conquer their greatest weaknesses, but it comes with a torturous price. As the rush of helping people starts to outweigh the pain of the consequences, LJ moves toward acceptance. She considers it a gift, a chance to make up for the way she treated people in the past. 

Ben pushes on to find an end to the curse despite LJ's reluctance. He fears the real consequences are far worse than LJ's current symptoms, possibly linked to her Aunt Janine's memory loss. His love drives his need to protect her, even if it means hiding the next piece of the well's mystery. 

When LJ finds what Ben has kept secret, she may never forgive him.

Will he lose her heart before he can save her mind?

**Recommended mature YA for mild language and mild sexual content.**

My Review

The Line That Breaks is the second and final book in the series and having read the first only hours before starting this book, I have to say it is just as good. It start a little ways from the ending of the first book, don't worry you don't miss out on any of the juicy bits, with LJ and Ben struggling to find out more about the curse and how to break it. We also learn a few new things about the curse in this book, though you may have guessed some of them already.

LJ and Ben's relationship hits a lot of rough spots in this book, and while in some cases I feel that there's a ridiculous overreaction, the relationship always feels real. I don't agree with some of the things LJ does but her constantly putting others first is somethign I definitely agree with and the fact that even though her life's been rough she still able to give so much of herself to help others really endears her as a character. Ben too, is such a sweet and lovable guy. In fact this book is filled with awesome, lovable characters, even some of the not-so-great people redeem themselves somewhat. Except Emily, never Emily.

I thought the pacing in this book was great right up to the end where everything seemed to rush together. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the ending, but it just felt like everything unravelled too fast, like when you drop a ball of wool and it unravels completely before you can blink. It may have just seemed that way to me because I was getting really tired by that stage (1am does not make for great reading time, but I had to finish the book!) but I would've liked more of a slow build-up like the rest of the story was. This is just a minor thing, and I still really enjoyed everything about the book!

Figuring out the secrets of this curse is not easy and pretty much everyone is pushed to breaking point at one stage or another, which is what makes this book so great. It's not just an easy here-are-all-the-answers quest, Ben and LJ struggle to make sense of what is happening and to find out how they can fix things. This is not an action-packed book but since even the 'boring' bits of the story are engaging, you don't notice at all. If you read the first book then what are you waiting for, and if you haven't read the first book then you should get on it right away! A really great, quick, 2-book series that I thoroughly enjoyed!

Excerpt

The alarm clock kicked on. Its music was distant, muted. In another room? I shifted my stiff body. My back protested the movement with a pinch that rivaled a knife wound. There wasn't a comforter or any pillows around my body, only a coldness seeping up from . . .

The floor.

Cracking my eyes open, I realized I was in the bathroom. I palmed the frigid, ivory-colored tile and pushed up to my knees. Every part of me ached. I glanced around and noticed a shallow pool of water inside the footed tub. A sponge lay at the bottom.

Ugh.

I'd cleaned again. It was starting to happen more often. Time was slipping away without recollection. I'd be lying if I said it didn't scare me at all. Part of me was terrified. The other part was already numb, ready to accept this fate. My family's fate.

YA Dystopia

Published: 19th August 2013

Remy Alexander was born into the elite meritocracy of the Okarian Sector. From an early age, she and her friends were programmed for intellectual and physical superiority through specialized dietary regimes administered by the Okarian Agricultural Consortium. But when her older sister Tai was murdered in a brutal classroom massacre, her parents began to suspect foul play. They fled the Sector, taking their surviving daughter underground to join the nascent Resistance movement. But now, three years later, Remy’s former schoolgirl crush, Valerian Orleán, is put in charge of hunting and destroying the Resistance. As Remy and her friends race to unravel the mystery behind her sister’s murder, Vale is haunted by the memory of his friendship with Remy and is determined to find out why she disappeared. As the Resistance begins to fight back against the Sector, and Vale and Remy search for the answers to their own questions, the two are set on a collision course that could bring everyone together—or tear everything apart.

Interview with K. Makansi

When did you decide you all wanted to write together?

We knew from the get-go! When Kristy (the mom of our trio) first had the dream that sparked The Sowing, she immediately shared it with my younger sister, Elena. The idea fell by the wayside for a few years, but in 2012, she brought it up to me as something she was still interested in working on. I fell in love, and the spark was rekindled. Kristy wrote another chapter, I wrote chapter three, and then Elena joined in and wrote another chapter shortly after that. We all dove in together, and took ownership over the story collectively. It just happened that way!


What has been the best part about writing together?

I think, for me, it’s been learning from the writing styles of my co-authors. I’ve always loved to write, but working with two other talented writers has really honed my skill and taught me how to use different voices and new techniques. I think we’ve all learned a lot from each other both professionally and personally. It’s great knowing that your two collaborators are also two of your best friends and closest relatives!


Did you encounter many difficulties/differing ideas while writing The Sowing?

Actually, no. We’ve all had fairly similar views on the direction of the story, our vision of the world, and the arc of our characters. There have definitely been minor disagreements—and believe me, minor disagreements can turn very quickly into major arguments when we’re all as passionate about the story as we are—but everything has been resolvable. At the end of the day, we all recognize how passionate we are about the trilogy, and respect each other’s ideas because of that passion. We all want to succeed, and in order to do so, we share ideas and learn from each other.


Where did the idea for The Sowing spring from?

As I mentioned earlier, Kristy had a dream years ago that was the genesis for the story. In the dream, a young girl was running through a dark, abandoned city, crumbling buildings around her. Gunfire rattled in the distance and explosions lit up the night sky. The girl had a gun slung over her shoulder and was running from—or to—something. She rounds a corner and comes face to face with a boy, a young man she never expected to see again, a boy she’d once been in love with. She skids to the ground and lies there, helpless. When the boy stretches his hand out to her and their fingers connect, a bolt of electricity flies through her and sends him flying.

It was an intense and visual scene, Kristy says. She knew the stakes in the battle were high, and she knew the two young people had once been lovers. Eventually they became Remy Alexander and Valerian Orlean, the two protagonists of our story. Remy lost her electroshock powers—we decided that idea was a little too cliché—and Vale and Remy both grew up as we wrote the book. But the heart of the scene remains, and the moment when Vale reaches his hands out to Remy is still one of our favorites in the series.


Was there a part of the book that was harder or easier to write than the rest?

I personally had a lot of trouble writing the scenes where Vale attends the Solstice Celebration and makes a critical and incredibly challenging decision (no spoilers!). It was really hard for me to get into his head there, and I had to do a lot of writing exercises to think about how he would have approached that situation. In the end, I actually wrote a Caesar Flickerman style interview a la The Hunger Games where Flickerman asks Vale how he’s feeling about everything that’s going on. That was what enabled me to really see things through his eyes, and the emotional tension behind those scenes finally came together.


Do you have a favourite character from The Sowing?

We love them all! But two of my favorites are Eli and Jeremiah, for totally different reasons. Jeremiah is a clown, incapable of taking things seriously. When he does bow his head and think hard, you know the situation is dire. But most of the time, he’s hilarious, and his light-hearted approach to the world provides some comic relief in dark times.

Eli is great for different reasons. He’s a troublemaker and a hothead with a serious problem with authority. He operates under his own set of rules, and his traumatized past and dark sense of humor make him one of the most interesting characters to write.


What are you currently working on and/or what do you have planned for the future?

So many things! We have a novella from Soren’s perspective, as yet untitled, coming out at the beginning of April. The Reaping, book two of the Seeds trilogy, will be released in late summer or early fall. And I’m working on a solo project called Porous, an experimental work in a genre I’m calling “scientific paranormal”, wherein a girl named Noomi discovers she has paranormal abilities that are rooted in the principles of quantum physics. It’s also darkly psychological, and the reader will spend a lot of time wondering what’s real and what’s not. The story is being released for free in serial installments on my blog and Wattpad.


Thanks for the wonderful and insightful interview, Amira! I'm really looking forward to seeing more of K. Makansi!

Flawed Perfection Cover

Flawed Perfection (Beautifully Flawed #1) by Cassandra Giovanni
NA Contemporary Romance
Published: 7th March 2014 by Show Not Tell Publishing

Bobby Beckerson was the American All-Star hockey player--he was the spitting image of perfection to his family. Goofy, sweet and undeniably gorgeous, he had everything but the one girl he wanted: River Ahlers.

River Ahlers is successful in everything but love. She's been in love with Adam Beckerson since they were kids. Worst of all she's stuck right in the middle of the brother's dueling over everything and anything, and she doesn't even know she's the ultimate prize.

Adam Beckerson was a boy with a guitar, a smile that sunk girl's hearts and a stone wall around his own. He was anything but perfect, and no matter how hard he tried he was nothing compared to Bobby. Sweet, damaged, with boyish good-looks, nobody thought Adam loved anyone but himself.

Bobby loved River, River loved Adam and Adam only loved himself--or so everyone thought. Then one night everything changes, and as it threatens to destroy everyone involved a tragedy strikes that will break them all...

Excerpt

Some things are almost impossible to fix. The relationship I had with Mom was one of those things. In truth, it had never been that great. I always just agreed, held my tongue and was respectful to her attitude and opinions.

I closed my eyes.

As a child and even now as an adult, I wondered if she could love me for who I really was, and now— now I knew. No. My chest tightened with the thought, and then my mind went to Bobby. The thought tightened my chest so much I had to take a deep breath.

Bobby knew. He knew how it was! Yet his own anger at his multiple losses had driven him to say something he’d regret forever.

Something I’d regret forever.

I looked over at Adam as he parked the car and placed his hands firmly on the steering wheel. His fingers paled with the pressure as his lips moved, air whishing out, but the words seemed to escape him.

He squeezed his eyes as he released the steering wheel and scratched his chin.

Finally he spoke, “How do you feel about me living with you?”

Adam continued to look ahead, his eyes flashing over something in the distance.
