Book Review: The Foster Child by Jenny Blackhurst

The Foster Child - Jenny Blackhurst

I’ve had my eye on The Foster Child for quite a while, and each time I saw the cover, it gave me this feeling that the plot could be extremely creepy – so I finally decided to read it…

Book Review: Defender by G X Todd #HearTheVoices

Defender - G X Todd

“What if the voice in your head didn’t belong to you?

‘On the cusp of sleep, have we not all heard a voice call out our name?’”

From the inside cover:

In a world where long drinks are in short supply, a stranger listens to the voice in his head telling him to buy a lemonade from the girl sitting on the dusty road.

Here and now it’s dangerous to listen to your inner voice. Those who do, keep it quiet.

The voices have purpose. And when Pilgrim meets Lacey, there is a reason. He just doesn’t know it yet.

Defender pulls you on a wild ride to a place where the voices in your head will save or slaughter you. Continue reading “Book Review: Defender by G X Todd #HearTheVoices”

Book Review: The White Road by Sarah Lotz

The White Road - Sarah Lotz

When I read the synopsis for this one, I knew I had to read it – Man vs. Nature. I love the cover and the tagline on the front of the book – “Death waits at the top of the world”.

From the inside cover:

Adrenaline-junky Simon Newman sneaks onto private land to explore a dangerous cave in Wales with a strange man he’s met online. But Simon gets more than he bargained for when the expedition goes horribly wrong. He emerges, the only survivor, after a rainstorm trap the two in the cave. Simon thinks he’s had a lucky escape.

And then his video of his near-death experience goes viral.

The whole world will be watching. There’s only one place on earth for him to pit himself against the elements: Everest, the tallest mountain in the world.

But Everest is also one of the deadliest spots on the planet. Two hundred and eighty people have died trying to reach its peak.

And Simon’s luck is about to run out. Continue reading “Book Review: The White Road by Sarah Lotz”
