Book Review: Light the Way (Bk2) by Joe Kipling

I received this free book by the author in exchange for an honest review. 
Goodreads summary: In the near future, when the world's population has been decimated by disease, the fortunate few live inside the Boundary, while the unlucky ones are left to die on the Outside. 
MaryAnn Hunter has crossed over to become a fugitive on the Outside. Hiding out in the Union headquarters MaryAnn is slowly coming to terms with the lies she has been brought up with.
But when a friend asks for help MaryAnny finds herself on a dangerous rescue mission that takes her on a terrifying journey back into the desperate clutches of the Director and the Light. MaryAnn faces a fight for survival. It's a fight she must win against insurmountable odds - but is it one she is willing to win at any cost? 

Light the Way is the second book in The Union Trilogy. Set in a dystopian future The Union Trilogy is about death and coming to terms with loss, the abuse of power, discrimination and the fear of the unknown.

This is one of my favorite series. I love that the author contacted me again to read and review Light the way. If you have not read my review for Blinded by the light you can check that out here.

I loved reading this book. The dystopian setting for this story was written well. I was happy to see that MaryAnn has grown some from the first book. It still is a lot for her take and to understand but she does try. This story is written from two POVs but it does not take away from the main character. 

Peter is still the fun witty guy that I loved from the first one.  He and Daryl are great together and are more like brothers. The relationship that Peter has with MaryAnn is sweet. She is like his little sister. There was one part in the book between Peter, MaryAnn, and the Watch.I don't want to spoil it but you can see the influence that MaryAnn has on him. There were a tons of others but that was my favorite one. 

The journey for the characters was a big risk. The consequences were understood but for what they all believed in it was worth it to them.  The plot in this story was good and it had me guessing the whole way. I could really see this trilogy becoming a movie. 

Overall I love this series and I can't wait for the next one to come out.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.

This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.
