“There is a moment just after the die is cast and before it lands upon the gaming table in which the smallest breeze may change its course – the way it rolls and where it comes to rest.”


 

SYNOPSIS:

Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion?

Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha’s past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.

With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.

“Time is the alchemy that turns compassion into love…”


 

SYNOPSIS:

Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.

This is the story of what happened first…

Jacqueline was her mother’s perfect daughter—polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it’s because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline.

Jillian was her father’s perfect daughter—adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you’ve got.

They were five when they learned that grown-ups can’t be trusted.

They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices.

April Wrap-Up

Another month has already passed and another late wrap-up for you guys. I really want to get this blog as active as it can be but I’m too lazy.

I’m really frustrated when it comes to my wrap-up lately because I’m not reading as much as I did before. On the bright side, I guess reading something is better than reading nothing. So I’ll make this wrap-up quick.

I’ve read 5 books in the month of April and I’m quite satisfied with that because I finally finally FINALLY finished The Complete Sherlock Holmes Volume 1.

Without further ado, here are all the books that I have read in the month of April…

She’s even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. ‘Jess and Jason’, she calls them. Their life – as she sees it – is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed.
