There is something truly terrifying about an apocalypse setting that scares and fascinates me at the same time.  I think Wendy Higgins did a good job of building a truly scary world in Unknown.  I finished this book in two days.  I only put it down to sleep.  Even when I put the book down I still kept think about how frightening this book actually was.     Unknown starts out like any other contemporary love story.  A girl grows up with her brother and his best friend.  Then the brother’s best friend becomes her friend as well.  Of course,… Read more »

  Welcome to COLLECTIVE PERSPECTIVE A segment where at least two of our bloggers collaborate to share their thoughts in a joint review discussion.     Today, Bry and Fry discuss the latest segment of Mira Grant’s Parasitology series, Symbiont F: Going to have to tell you all now, this will not be a spoiler free review. Just stop reading if you don’t want to be spoiled, otherwise, continue on into the tapeworm madness. B: Symbiont has finally arrived, and while we anticipated the next (and thought to be the final) segment of Parasitology eagerly, we were saddened by the prospect that this series was supposed… Read more »

Welcome to COLLECTIVE PERSPECTIVE A segment where at least two of our bloggers collaborate to share their thoughts in a joint review discussion.     Today, Bry and Fry discuss the conclusion of Mira Grant’s Newsflesh series, Blackout F: Blackout is the thrilling conclusion to Mira Grant’s (penname for Seanan McGuire) series of bloggers in a post apocalyptic world. The insect vector for Kellis-Amberlee has caused Florida to be deemed a disaster area, shutting it off from the rest of the United States. Alaric Kwong’s sister is still stuck in Florida, and Dr. Abbey tasks Shaun with both the task of fetching the girl, but… Read more »

As horror books go, this was actually pretty creepy, up until a point. The apocalyptic nature of the scenario, plus limited information, following those who were not in charge around as they tried to survive and figure out what was happening, is remnicient of a Roland Emmerich film. Yeah, as most apocalyptic stories do, this one started with very little. A blackout on New Years Eve doesn’t render many into panic. Most people continue their revelry and enjoyment of the evening. When morning comes, they find the sky blanketed in dust and aftershocks from something destroying buildings. Jeanie has come… Read more »

I honestly don’t know where to start. I LOVE this entire series, and this latest book just reinforces my love for it. In case you haven’t heard of this series, yes it is a zombie apocalypse series. However, they are not the living dead, which leads to many options for naming the infected other than zombies. A manufactured virus released by an unknown agent has infected most of humanity with something similar to rabies. Society has collapsed, and there is one light in the darkness that fills the world now. That light is Wolf Squadron. I can’t help but laugh… Read more »
