DNF at 16%. Gross gender stereotypes. I tapped out when I read "Bataan death march by Powerpoint." Just no.

Overall I think that this was a very interesting story and the descriptions of the monsters were wonderful. You could really imagine them and how they interacted with people and the world around them. Very interesting ending and I applaud that the author did not go the easy or basic route. The ending was rushed a little but still good.

4.5 stars...

When I saw The Phoenix Descent not only courted two of my favorite genres sci-fi & dystopian/post-apocalyptic, but also had a parallel story line set in outer space, which I also love reading about, I just knew I had to give it a try. I'm glad I did because it delivered everything I was hoping for and more!

In one story line, present day, three astronauts are on their way to Mars when something happens and they find themselves heading in the wrong direction - back to earth. Meanwhile, one hundred years in the future, a tribe of warriors and gatherers who have made their home in the Dak, previously South Dakota, are battling against what they call the Riy and the Takers in order to just survive.

I really liked Grossart's writing style! The story flow was spot on, it was a good length, there was just the right amount of action and he weaved the two story lines together seamlessly. There were also a lot of different facets to this story but they were all well-developed and mixed together nicely. I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for anything else Grossart comes out with.

*I received this ARC from NetGalley & 47 North in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

A Kindle First selection. Again (as with Miramont’s Ghost) what I thought I was getting turned out to be very different with the book I ended up reading. I thought this was going to be a science fiction book, it turned out to be a monster-horror novel. The book is about some toxic substance that accidentally ends up int the back of car in a junk yard, where it is forgotten about for years until it leaks out mixes with acid rain gets onto some rats who then mutate into monsters. As the book goes on the monsters multiply and mutate more and more. The country begins to fall apart, and there is some crazy subplot about a Soviet sleeper in the Presidents inner circle. The sub plot is absolutely ridiculous and in my option takes away from the real action of the story. The only good thing about this book is the twist at the end. Read it if you like monster-horror, but otherwise skip it.… (mer)
