You know that feeling you get when you can’t wait to get back to reading a book? That was me with THE RIVER AT NIGHT. I have been in a bit of a rut with reading lately. This book got me excited about reading again. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened […]
This was an unexpected read. I loved Nick Cutter’s THE DEEP last year, so I was expecting a lot from LITTLE HEAVEN. Too much maybe? The author has distinct style of writing fucked up characters. You think you know what to expect. The author invites you to judge these characters, then he throws […]

‘Set in a vividly realised world of elite Alphas and their ‘weaker’ Omega twins, it holds a mirror up to our obsession with perfection’ Guardian
The second book in Francesca Haig’s incredible Fire Sermon series.
The Omega resistance has been brutally attacked, its members dead or in hiding.
The Alpha Council’s plan for permanently containing the Omegas has begun.
But all is not entirely lost: the Council’s seer, The Confessor, is dead, killed by her twin’s sacrifice.
Cass is left haunted by visions of the past, while her brother Zach’s cruelty and obsession pushes her to the edge, and threatens to destroy everything she hopes for.
As the country moves closer to all-out civil war, Cass will learn that to change the future she will need to uncover the past. But nothing can prepare her for what she discovers: a deeply buried secret that raises the stakes higher than ever before.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series The Fire Sermon. Map of Bones is the second book in this series. **This review contains major spoilers for book one.** Map of Bones continues with it’s dark setting and bleak future for the survivors of nuclear fallout. This story follows Cass after the […]

From the acclaimed author of The Troop—which Stephen King raved “scared the hell out of me and I couldn’t put it down.…old-school horror at its best”—comes this utterly terrifying novel where The Abyss meets The Shining.
A strange plague called the ‘Gets is decimating humanity on a global scale. It causes people to forget—small things at first, like where they left their keys, then the not-so-small things, like how to drive or the letters of the alphabet. Their bodies forget how to function involuntarily. There is no cure.
But now, far below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, deep in the Mariana Trench, a heretofore-unknown substance hailed as “ambrosia”—a universal healer, from initial reports—has been discovered. It may just be the key to eradicating the ‘Gets.
In order to study this phenomenon, a special research lab, the Trieste, has been built eight miles under the sea’s surface. But when the station goes incommunicado, a brave few descend through the lightless fathoms in hopes of unraveling the mysteries lurking at those crushing depths…and perhaps to encounter an evil blacker than anything one could possibly imagine.
This book was terrifying. I don’t mean some parts of it were gross, it was full of creepy ideas and hopeless situations. Not only that, The Deep had me completely engrossed so that I was up reading into the wee hours of the night. The small hours when everyone else is already asleep […]
