“The Hollowmen” Book 2 in the Hollows Series continues on with Remy, the strong female character. These are your typical zombie apocalypse dystopian books, and the first one didn’t have a lot of the zombie stuff in it. This one did. I am still enjoying the storyline, but this one had way more gore, swearing and added some sexual contents, including an almost rape. So for me, that was a little much. I wouldn’t recommend for readers under the age of 17. Its action packed, easy reading, not too deep and there is a small element of romance. I am giving this second book three stars. If you love all things zombie, this one’s for you.
Bristles was a great spin on the traditional Cinderella story. Good YA book set in a alternative society where the government is strong arming its people. Bryssa or Bristles as her step mother calls her, steps out of her horrid life to change it all for everyone. I give this book 4 stars for YA.
I just finished the second book in the Eden trilogy called “The Human.” The series is a dystopian world where modern technology and medical science has created a virus that was meant for good, but has mutated in a way that is going to destroy all human life. The main character is a strong female, Eve, who is willing to fight and die for their colony of humans to survive. I loved the first, “Bane” and the second just as much. I have also read the short prequel “Ashes” and a short story, “Raid” they are all great and am impatiently waiting for the last book “Eve.” These books are intended for YA, and are suitable. There is a lot of violence so I recommend for readers 15 and up. I give this book 5 stars.
