Weekly Book Round Up #42

30 May 2014

This was a bit of a weird one. The main character, Juneau, has been raised in Alaska in what she believes to be a post- World War III society. However, one day after returning from hunting, she finds her entire clan gone. Through her connection to the Yara (a form of natural magic) Juneau traces her clan, and discovers that World War III never happened, and that she has been lied to by everyone she thought she could trust. Enlisting the help of Miles (who has his own reasons for helping Juneau) she heads off on a trip to try and rescue her family and the rest of the clan, whilst being chased by several groups who seem to be after Juneau for her connection to the Yara. This is the first book in a trilogy and it's ended on a massive cliffhanger, I can't wait to see where the series goes!

Nicola's rating: 3.5/5

 This is a book I was super excited about! Charlaine Harris is one of my favourite authors and I couldn't wait to see what her new series was like. This story is told from the viewpoints of the different inhabitants of Midnight, Texas. The characters are all vastly different, and not all entirely as they seem. The book mainly set the scene for a murder mystery and introduced the new characters to everyone. Initially I found the amount of characters slightly confusing, mixing up who was who, but after a while I really got into the story and now I can't wait for the next book! If you enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse novels, these are a must-read!

Nicola's rating: 5/5
