Zombies and unexpected deaths

“Rise of the Chosen” is a fantastic story that pulls you into the world ravaged by the Lifeblood. It’s an original tale with vivid characters, surprising plot twists and a refreshing take at zombie-like creatures who aren’t always the blood-thirsty beasts you’re used to.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

Goodreads blurb (since I won’t put it better):

In Sam’s world there are two rules. Rule #1: Nobody dies. Protect the living at all costs. Rule #2: Everybody dies. At least once.

The Waking was a global event in which a force called the Lifeblood invaded all humans who died. The few strong enough to control it came back as powerful immortals. The rest let the bloodlust take over and awoke with one goal – to kill.

Newly appointed Watch Guard Samantha Shields has a legacy to uphold. Her father died a hero defending their city and now she wants to follow in his footsteps. Except for the dying part, of course. Unfortunately, fate has other plans as she discovers deep dark secrets that make her choose between her loyalties and the lives of everyone in her city. Both rules are in play as Sam is forced to make hard decisions that could cost her everything – including the person she cares about most.

Ooooh I’ve got one thing to say about this book: I love it! The story’s awesome!

But seriously, I love the writing style. At first, I thought the introduction with all the definitions wouldn’t work, but they fitted in perfectly because they clearly stated what is what and how the situation looks like. The story read much better with me knowing what the author had in mind while using a certain word. Continue reading “Zombies and unexpected deaths”

Interesting and refreshing superhero story

Interesting and refreshing – a story of a superhero that would surprise you, make you laugh and definitely keep you entertained. It has superpowers, mystery, and a classic secret identity :).

I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Since NetGalley offered only two issues [half of the first volume] I can’t tell you if the whole thing is fantastic and exceptional, or if it’s simply a nice graphic novel. What I can tell you is that it surely picked my interest and I really enjoyed reading these two chapters. Continue reading “Interesting and refreshing superhero story”

Three brothers to save the fourth

Yea, I know the post title is cheesy, but this poem’s been running through my head for a while now. It started at work, we had this “how would you improve… question and I thought about all the trackers we’re using and then went with the “One tracker to rule them all”, etc :P.
Too many books 😀
Oh wait, there’s no such thing!

Anyway, the book review! Yes, I wanted to write about a certain book. A pretty good one too :). If you’re interested in a young-adult sci-fi novel with few brothers as main characters I’ve got just the thing for you!

Well, anyone’s help actually, but since the message reaches them it will have to do. Continue reading “Three brothers to save the fourth”

Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters

It’s been two weeks since my last Funny Friday, but for some reason, I couldn’t get into writing. But here we are again with two novels. Yes, only two single books. I thought I’d add one more, but somehow it didn’t fit. It’s not going to be a long post [I think].

Let’s start with a two-author story. Two fantastic authors that made an amazing job writing this book. The one and only…

Good Omens

Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

And try to tell me that book’s no good, I dare you!

The lazy or super busy ones had an occasion to listen to the adaptation of this story on BBC Radio. It was a rather good adaptation, so if you’ll ever have another chance just listen to it.

I’m not going to write a review, mostly because I just found some really nice ones on GR and I feel mine wouldn’t be as good, I mean, check out the first paragraph of this one: Jeremy Zerbe’s Reviews.

Why do I love this book? Continue reading “Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters”
