New Book!

This week is going to be busy for me personally and the blog. I'm heading back to school tomorrow but I'm going to do my best to keep the reviews and interviews coming! So up next is Suki Michelle and Carlyle Clark's Apocalypse Gene. Read on to find out more!

Apocalypse Gene
Global pandemic is raging. Olivya Wright-Ono's once loving home has been converted to a hospice for the dying.  Her ability to see auras forces her to witness, with agonizing detail, the vibrant colors of life consumed by malignancy.  The beautiful and troubled, Mikah, is an elite Empath in the ancient Kindred clan, led by the brooding, ever-morphing, monster named Prime. Mikah has learned a terrible truth . . . the plague is linked to Kindred origins.  When Olivya sees evidence of disease creeping into her mother's aura, she has no one to turn to but Mikah. Can he unearth the Kindred secrets and find a cure?  Can she trust this boy whose power allows him to  manipulate her very emotions? With her mother's life, and that of the world, in the balance, Olivya and Mikah embark on a quest to stop the Pandemic, only to discover it is far, far more than a mere disease . . .

" ...a wildly imaginative young-adult apocalyptic thriller that also utilizes elements of science fiction, fantasy, folklore, mythology and romance...the well-choreographed, thematically powerful conclusion, coupled with the deeply developed characters of Olivya and Mikah, make this a memorable read.” --Kirkus Critics' Pick
"With its snappy, razor-sharp dialogue and wildly vivid imagery, the book, while geared toward young adults, has plenty for adults to enjoy as well." --Foreword
""The Apocalypse Gene" is a thoughtful read with plenty to consider, highly recommended." --Midwest Book Review

So everybody go out and get your copy and read long with me. I'll also be posting an interview with Suki and Carlyle, as well as backtracking for a minute tomorrow to post the interview Jenni James, author of Pride and Popularity which was reviewed on the blog a few weeks ago. 

Happy reading!
