World Book Day is here and I couldn’t let it pass without a quick post about my current reads.
I have just finished beta reading Sarina Langer’s debut novel, ‘Rise of the Sparrows’. What a thrilling, entrancing read. I shall say no more… okay, I will- Loved it! Keep your eyes peeled for publication dates for this gem of a book.
Colossus by Jette Harris
Blurb: Four high school seniors find themselves locked in a house, forced to entertain the whims and appetites of an unpredictable man for one month. He calls himself Avery Rhodes. They call him Colossus, the looming, threatening figure who seems to be teetering on the edge of sanity. Heather Stokes, no stranger to tragedy, does all she can to protect her classmates, going as far as sacrificing herself time and again. As the month winds down, both Heather and Rhodes realize that they are in over their heads, and it is possible that none of them will survive. COLOSSUS is a brutal psychological thriller, with characters reminiscent of Alice Hoffman, but a plot worthy of Karin Slaughter.
Trigger warning: Sexual violence, torture, suicide.
Nowhere by Jon Robinson
Blurb: Alyn, Jes, Ryan and Elsa are Nowhere. A concrete cube in the middle of a dense forest. Imprisoned inside are one hundred teenagers from all over the country. They’re all criminals. But none of them remember committing any crimes. Who has put them there. What do their captors want? And how will they ever break free . . . ?
