Do you have a hard time leaving once you’re introduced to a new dystopian world? I do. I want to learn everything about how the world fell and how the people left took advantage of everyone’s fear to control them. The new laws and norms fascinate me, and I’m entirely hooked when a small group of people starts to rise and demand more.
Her boyfriends always laugh at Henry’s warnings not to hurt his daughter, Vanessa. He gets it. He’s not an intimidating man, but there’s nothing Henry wouldn’t do to protect Vanessa.
Wool by Hugh Howey is one of my favorite books of all time. It made me fall in love with apocalyptic stories by demonstrating that such stories aren’t just about crumbling worlds because of zombie-creating infections. I had to pick this book up when I saw Hugh Howey edited and wrote a story for The End is Nigh.
I was hooked from start to finish. Red Hands is a thrilling read full of heartbreak, empathy, and supernatural mysteries.
