I loved the romance, but the true connection built between Antika and Drevon was the magic. The way they spoke to each other and treated one another… The sex scene were steamy, but they were moving because they were emotionally based. So well done!
I did some editing in my head (the word that is over-used), but the story is captivating. It’s not a new plot, but it’s beautifully crafted with charming players and a moving story. It’s well paced and enjoyable to read.
I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series and to discover more from Sharon C. Cooper. If all her books are as lovely as this, she has a dedicated fan in me!
Everyday knowledge we took for granted as we grew up are now lost in our modern world. People don’t even know how to change a flat tire. And I like that this story is also aimed at both boys and girls.
If you own a car, you should at least know how to change the oil. So kudos to Northup for tackling this lost art of teaching children what they need to learn to make it on their own.
I highly recommend this series and can’t wat to see what he’ll be teaching next in Grandpa’s Garage. I give it 5 stars.
One man alone in a city of zombies. It doesn’t sound like something I would read, especially as he talks to no one. Cleverly done by the author as the story is told by journal entries. Only the day and time gave it away, the rest read like it was being told in the first person narrative.
The only thing I didn’t like was the entries were the chapters and appeared randomly and at any length. There never seemed to be a proper place to stop.
Overall, I found Surviving the Evacuation so compelling, I literally could not stop reading. Once I’d reached a certain point, Bill’s quest for survival and resilience sucked me in. He learns so much, despite being impeded. The biggest thing he learnt comes at the end, and I was really thrilled to discover it too.
I’ll probably be reading the whole series over the next year because there are a lot of books. But if this is anything to go by, then they are going to be a heck of a ride!
