ARC REVIEW: The Island

Dear lord, what did I just read?! There is barely a second of this book that is not pulse pounding action. Probably more horror than your typical thriller, I really loved the survival aspects of this one. It is rife with violence and gory scenes, there are probably 20 trigger warnings so definitely beware ifContinue reading “ARC REVIEW: The Island”

REVIEW: Girl in Ice

This was my kind of thriller y’all. A little science, a little historical linguistics, a remote setting… all elements of a compelling mystery. Val, our protagonist, is a linguist by trade… she reminded me a lot of Amy Adam’s character in the movie Arrival. Anyway, she is called out of the blue by her late brother’sContinue reading “REVIEW: Girl in Ice”
