Ann and I are both big fans of RT Book Reviews, and we can’t wait to see everyone at the RT Booklovers Convention in Chicago next April. Until then, we’ll bask in the glow of these two back-to-back 4 1/2 Star Top Pick reviews!
Writing as Ellen Connor, Ann Aguirre and Carrie Lofty join forces to create a chilling, post-apocalyptic series, Dark Age Dawning. Frighteningly intense in its depiction of the struggle to survive in a world run amok, there’s edge-of-your-seat thrills mingled with supernatural forces, giving rise to a dangerous and passionate story.
For MIDNIGHT, coming September 6:
The middle book in Connor’s (aka Ann Aguirre & Carrie Lofty) post-apocalyptic trilogy revisits the world three years after the initial horrific Change. Chris Welsh was a secondary player in the first novel, but it is his exploits that are now examined. The authors’ writing styles blend together seamlessly, bringing forth a dark tale of endurance that manages to hang on to a flame of hope. A bare-knuckle struggle for survival gives this intense story poignancy and a gritty realism.
Shall we root for a third fantastic review for DAYBREAK, due out in December? Hell yeah! Go Ellen, go!
Oh, and All About Romance dug NIGHTFALL too. This just in:
With Nightfall, Ellen Connor kicks off an apocalyptic romance trilogy which, if this first book is anything to go by, looks like quite the inspired collaboration. This book features unusual and vivid world building, paired with a good, steamy romance. In addition, the authors aren’t afraid to take risks in presenting a story of love and hope set against a truly dangerous, bleak world.
