Parole is an American city that’s been cut off from the rest of the world because it’s on fire and the flames can’t be put out. The creepy evil government/police, Eye in the Sky, watch over the city from their helicopters. Also, a drug exists within the city that can cure anything, but can have negative side effects and/or cause its users to develop superpowers. So it’s an awesome blend of dystopian, apocalyptic, urban fantasy and s

I enjoyed it more than the first book and was very surprised on how Jenny Lynne made it work. I really didn’t know how it was going to work out. As usual, the characters are their awesome selves. The book was filled with betrayal, action, and drama worth reading. I was satisfied with the ending of the pretend story told in the hospital room and the actual story. It made me hopeful for a better future to make the sacrifice worth i

What if three hundred thousand other people from around the globe disappeared at the same time? This mystery filled with intrigue, suspense and mass hysteria gripped me from the very beginning and never let me go. I was fascinated by each turn in the story, the way the puzzle of “what really happened to the departed” divided the world, the community, and even individual relationships.

Book Rating:8.3 Characters: Cargon, Honour & Privilege (Cargon Trilogy Book 1) First published: June 5th 2011Rating: 0 stars GoodReads:Cargon, Honour & Privilege Review: I’m really liking this author’s style. Lots of stuff has been told and it’s only page 15. But I don’t feel like it’s been rushed or forced.

Book Rating:9.5 Characters: Unclaimed: The Memoirs of Jane E, Friendless Orphan (The Memoirs Of Jane E, Friendless Orphan Book 1) First published: December 1st 2016Rating: 9.42 stars GoodReads:Unclaimed: The Memoirs of Jane E, Friendless Orphan Review: Erin McCole Cupp has a gift for painting the social misfit in brush strokes so sharp and transparent, they cut you to the heart within a handful of paragraphs. Jane E is infinitely relatable and her world so meticulously drawn, it seems like a world you know, even though it’s clearly not. I devoured this book and wait breathlessly for the next installment. Nameless (The Memoirs of Jane E, Friendless Orphan, #2) (The Memoirs Of Jane E, Friendless Orphan Book 2) First published: October 7th 2016Rating: 9.6 stars GoodReads:Nameless (The Memoirs of Jane E, Friendless Orphan, #2) Review: Erin McCole Cupp continues her futuristic retelling of Jane Eyre in Nameless. Before you read this one (and you will want to read it!), definitely pick up the first book of the series: Unclaimed. I enjoyed that initial installment a great deal and gave it five stars, but this second part is even better.

Book Rating:8.6 Characters: The First Principle (Emancipation Warriors, #1) (Emancipation Warriors Book 1) First published: December 19th 2014Rating: 8.56 stars GoodReads:The First Principle (Emancipation Warriors, #1) Review: I received this book as a review copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I requested the book for two reasons. The first being that futuristic dystopian literature is still such a hot area for young adult fiction. I like to explore authors’ different takes on the prevalent theme. However, the bigger draw for me was the author herself, Marissa Shrock. She is a middle school language arts teacher, as I was once, publishing her first novel. So my assumption was that she would hav The Liberation (Emancipation Warriors Book 2) (Emancipation Warriors Book 2) First published: February 20th 2016Rating: 9.04 stars GoodReads:The Liberation (Emancipation Warriors Book 2) Review: In this sequel to The First Principle, Marissa Shrock writes one of the best Christian speculative novels I’ve read in a long time.

Did it make you marvel at all of the wondrous things that could be made reality by the force of imagination and the human spirit? Did it make you wish the future would just hurry the hell up and get here already so you could experience the magic yourself?

Book Rating:8.1 Characters: Liam’s Promise (The Doomsday Kids Book 1) First published: April 30th 2014Rating: 8.06 stars GoodReads:Liam’s Promise Review: I received this book as a first-reads giveaway but I planned to buy it no matter if I had not won. MY oldest child has gotten into this kick about how he is going to blow everything up and violence is great (I know, its the video games and TV and even just friends) Well, I wanted him to read something (because he LOVES to read) that would show him the emotional side. He is old enough to know bombs are bad and has read about Hiroshima but hasn’t been able to emotionally connect to these things ye
