hollow kingdom

Why we like the novel:

An extremely funny and original zombie novel, told from the point of view of animals that live in a world ravaged by zombies. The unusual thing about "Hollow Kingdom: The Year of the Crow" is that it tells a doomsday scenario from the perspective of a crow.

blackcoat rebellion

Why we like the novel:

The author Aimée Carter, who is known for the "Animox" series, has published an incredibly compelling prelude to a new fantasy series with her dystopian novel "Blackcoat Rebellion - The Lot of Three". She creates a dark world consisting of a cruel government, suspenseful characters and unpredictable twists and turns. As I read it, I kept wondering who I would trust if I were Kitty. Absolutely worth reading!

the grace year

Why we like the novel:

Kim Liggett's new book was heralded in the media as a mix of the bestsellers The Hunger Games and The Maid's Report, and that is exactly what it is. The author creates a very dark dystopia with her work. But the main protagonist never gives up hope. "The Grace Year - Your Resistance is Love" is an absolute page-turner that you can no longer put down. Highly Recommended!

the plus one

Why we like the novel:

Sarah Archer entertained me very well with her debut novel. Kelly is an exciting protagonist who finds herself little by little. She is smart, good at her job and more geared towards numbers and perfectionism. Ethan makes her life a little more colorful. It's fun to accompany Kelly on this. The topic of “robots” is also described in a captivating and realistic manner in this social science fiction novel.
