#ThrowbackThursday ~ HellHole by Gina Damico #AudioBookReview #YA #Fantasy #SciFi

My Throwback Thursday choice for this week is HellHole, an audiobook narrated by MacLeod Andrews and released in January 2015.

Renee at It’s Book Talk began this meme as a way to share old favourites, as well as books that have been waiting on the ‘to be read’ pile for however long, and are finally getting an airing.

My Thoughts

Max is the quintessential awkward teen who has zero luck with girls, loves crosswords and digging for fossils on Ugly Hill. He cares for his sick mother who’s waiting for a heart transplant as well as attending school and working long hours at a convenience store. One day at work he steals a cat statue for his mother, who loves sparkly junk. He can’t afford to buy it but wants to give his mother something he knows she’ll appreciate. Max is terrified the security camera will pick up his theft but little does he know getting caught is the least of his worries.

The Rise of Magicks (Chronicles of The One: Book 3) by Nora Roberts #PostApocalyptic #Fantasy #TuesdayBookBlog

Author: Nora Roberts

Performed by Julia Whelan

Published: November 2019 by Brilliance Audio 

Category: Dystopian, Post Apocalyptic, Fantasy, Audiobook Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fallon Swift has spent all her life preparing for this moment. No longer can she stand by whilst her fellow Magicks are hunted by the fanatical Purity Warriors or rounded up and experimented on by the government.

Fallon must follow her destiny to restore the magical shield that once protected them all. The final battle has begun…

Twenty years ago when a deadly pandemic was unleashed upon the world, destroying civilisation, a child was conceived. She, who would come to be known as The One, was destined to fulfil a prophecy and lead the light against the dark.

On the shield, one of seven forged in the timeless past to hold back the dark, fell a single drop of blood. 

So the shield weakened, and the dark, spider-patient, waited as the decades passed, and the wound spread under grass and ground.

And on the last day of what had been, a good man, in all innocence, broke the shield open. The dark rewarded him with a deadly infection, one that would pass from man to wife, from parent to child, from stranger to stranger.

#ThrowbackThursday ~ Morrighan (The Remnant Chronicles 0.5) by Mary E Pearson #YA #PostApocalyptic

Morrighan by Mary Pearson is my Throwback Thursday choice this week. An audiobook narrated by Julia Whelan and MacLeod Andrews, two of my favourites, and released in 2016.

My Thoughts

Although this is a prequel it can be read as a standalone novella. I haven’t yet read any of the Remnant Chronicles so I’m not sure of the connection to the series. From what I can gather the characters in this don’t feature in the main storyline and are, perhaps, ancestors.

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead is about how small decisions can have profound and unintended consequences, but how we can sometimes get a second chance.

On the way home from a dinner party, Lorna Love steps into the path of an oncoming car. When she wakes up she is in what appears to be a hospital – but a hospital in which her nurse looks like a young Sean Connery, she is served wine for supper, and everyone avoids her questions.

#BookSpotlight ~ Bollywood Invasion by Ricardo Alexanders #Fantasy Time Slip Novel #Extract

I’d like to welcome Ricardo Alexanders as he explains the idea behind his new book…..

What if Lennon was born an Indian…

If John Lennon was born in India in 1940 with the same talent, could he still conquer the world? 

This is the very question that I kept asking myself during my writing of Bollywood Invasion. Something extraordinary had to happen if the Indian (British) Invasion was to take America by storm as the world back then was not even close to be as multi-cultural as we are today.
