The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind by Jackson Ford @orbitbooks @Netgalley #NewRelease #JacksonFord

Hello Book Friends,

I’m excited to bring you a new super fun book that is going to hit the shelves in a couple of weeks.

Why did you pick it up Vicci? –  Ummm have you seen that title???

IntGdBN4_400x400

My Thoughts

This was such a fun read, it follows the main character Teagan, who has Psychokinesis or PK for short, so she can indeed move shit with her mind.

Tegan works for the Government, who send her on secret missions, simply because she is able to do things that other people can’t.

But all in all Tegan is a young girl, she thinks her abilities are cool, but that’s really about it, she wants to be able to drink beer and have a good time, she really isn’t that bothered about working for the Government, but she does know what will happen to her if anyone ever found out what she can do, so she does the bare minimum, much to her teams frustration.

Tegan’s real passion, is food, and not any old food, she really wants to own a restaurant, and her dream is to eat in every swanky place she can to get ideas for this, but this is just a pipe-dream.

The last job that she took on with her team didn’t go according to plan, and now a body has turned up, but he could only have been killed with powers the same as Tegan’s, she is adamant that she didn’t do it, but her team-mates are not so sure, so she is given 24 hours to prove her innocence before she is reported.

A really fun read, I loved Tegan, she was funny and sometimes really really stupid, but i think that made her more likeable.

A crazy ride that drops you right in the centre of it on the first page, you will never get bored with this story, some great characters and a bit of a cliffhanger that makes you think that book 2 will probably be coming your way soon!

**Many thanks to Orion Books and Netgalley for my copy of this book**

About the Book

For Teagan Frost, sh* just got real.

Teagan Frost is having a hard time keeping it together. Sure, she’s got telekinetic powers — a skill that the government is all too happy to make use of, sending her on secret break-in missions that no ordinary human could carry out. But all she really wants to do is kick back, have a beer, and pretend she’s normal for once.

But then a body turns up at the site of her last job — murdered in a way that only someone like Teagan could have pulled off. She’s got 24 hours to clear her name – and it’s not just her life at stake. If she can’t unravel the conspiracy in time, her hometown of Los Angeles will be in the crosshairs of an underground battle that’s on the brink of exploding . . .

Full of imagination, wit, and random sh*t flying through the air, this insane adventure from an irreverent new voice will blow your tiny mind.

Dead in Venice by Fiona Leitch @fkleitch @audibleuk #DerynEdwards #Mystery #Thriller #AudiobookReview

Hello again book buddies!!

I’m super happy to share my review of this little surprise that I didn’t even have on my radar.

Why did you pick this one up Vicci?

Well, funny story, I didn’t even know this book existed, I was chatting to a lovely lady on TBC (THE Book Club) on Facebook and someone was asking for Audio recommendations, I jumped in to give some of my favourites, and ended up in a messenger chat with her.
I sent her an audio with the Audible ‘Send this Book’ option, and luckily she loved it (Phew) and to say thank you, she gifted me a code for her book, I had no idea she was an author either, Anyhoo, I downloaded it, listened to it, and Loved it!!

41813137

My Thoughts 

Bella Tyson is a famous author, her genre is crime and she loves to write a good old Murder Mystery, but there is one thing holding her back at the moment, and that is writers block, after a messy and bitter divorce a couple of years ago, she just can’t seem to get back into the swing of it.

She receives an email from a fan who offers her an apartment in Venice to help her with new ideas for her new novel.
Bella obviously jumps at the chance, and soon starts thinking of ideas for her new book.

After arriving in Venice and meeting the very dashing Will, the two set off to see the sights of Venice, well until the murders start happening obviously!

This is brilliant for Bella as she can use these brutal murders for inspiration for her book, but then weird things keep happening that she can’t explain!

A super fun read, I loved Bella’s character, she used humour a lot to get herself out of situations, and I love her for that as I tend to do the same thing, although not as brilliantly as her!

Expertly narrated by Deryn Edwards, who bought Bella’s character to life and showed her sparkling personality.

A short listen at only 6 hours, and well worth grabbing!

**Thank you to the author for gifting me a copy of this book**

Dead in VeniceCrime Grant Finalist
By: Fiona Leitch
Narrated by: Deryn Edwards
Length: 6 hrs and 4 mins
Release date: 11-09-18
Publisher: Audible Studios

AUDIBLE CRIME WRITING GRANT FINALIST – AUDIBLE EXCLUSIVE

Bella Tyson is a famous 40-something crime writer suffering from writer’s block ever since a bitter divorce two years before. When a fan offers her the use of an apartment in Venice, Bella jumps at it, hoping a change of scene will have her writing again. Once there, she soon meets Will, a charming Englishman, who shows her around the city.

Enchanted by both Will and her new surroundings, Bella decides to write a supernatural murder mystery and begins researching local legends and the city’s more sinister side, including an illicit visit to the island of Poveglia, spooky former home of Venice’s asylum. Soon Bella uncovers more than she has bargained for and finds herself enmeshed in a series of gruesome real-life murders that uncannily mirror the legends she is researching.

As she and Will join forces to investigate, real life and local lore merge disconcertingly – for nothing in Venice turns out to be what seems, including Will….

The Women by S.E. Lynes @SELynesAuthor @bookouture @Netgalley #NewRelease #HappyPublicationDay

Hello book friends,

Super happy to bring you a review for this cracker of a thriller, I was completely blown away with this book.

Happy Publication Day to S.E. Lynes!

Why did you pick it up Vicci?

After reading the blurb on Netgalley I was crossing my fingers hoping that I would be accepted for this one, it just sounded like I would love it, and I wasn’t wrong!

44091295

My Thoughts 

Wow, what a crazy ride that was!

After meeting both Samantha and Peter on their no-so-happy honeymoon, we then get flashed back in time to when they met.

Samantha is a normal student, she likes to go out drinking and having fun with her friends.

When the handsome lecturer Peter sidles up behind her and starts to show her some attention, she is of course flattered, he is after all, the sexy man that all of the girls have their eyes on.

He is a very well-knowledged man, and although he didn’t actually call her stupid, she feels it, and he definitely didn’t imply it…did he?

The attraction between them is palpable, and a very quick relationship is formed, so much so, that Samantha is moving in with Peter within a week of meeting him!

She soon learns that living together is very difficult, I mean she’s never lived with anyone before, so it is only right that he tells her when she is doing something wrong, like eating at the wrong times, or taking too long in the shower.

Only someone that really loves you would make sure that you are reading the correct literary fiction instead of that “propagandist tosh” in her women’s magazines.

He is a very clever man, and appreciates things like a glass of red wine every night (that he has chosen), with the dinner (that he has cooked), and after the meal they have (he has) a strict 10 o’clock bed time (after sex of course) routine.

And she really is happy…….right?

After starting her new job as a Creative writing teacher (that Peter kindly got for her), she starts to receive poems that make her very uncomfortable, are they from one of her students? they could be I suppose, but then, that would mean that the person writing them knows about her life, how can someone else know what is going through her own head?

I was totally gripped by this book, I could clearly see the red flags, they were there for all to see, except Samantha didn’t, and unfortunately (myself included) unless you have been in this situation, the flags do not show until you are at rock bottom.

A fantastic read, grab it ASAP!!

**Many thanks to The author, Bookouture, and Netgalley for my copy of the book**

About the book

The Women
by S.E. Lynes
The night she moves in with Peter, she’s so happy, so exhilarated, so in love. Later, she will remember a much smaller feeling, a tiny one percent in her gut. And she will remember pushing that feeling aside…

Samantha Frayn doesn’t know why Peter Bridges picks her – a nobody with bitten fingernails and a troubled childhood behind her – but she falls quickly. He’s older, charming, likes fine wine and French films, and his beautiful home has real art on its walls.

Peter transforms Samantha’s life in an instant. He sees the better version of herself – the one she’s always wanted to be. It’s only normal that there’s a little friction, when she moves in, over domestic matters like where things are kept, or the proper times to eat, sleep and shower. She’s lucky to be with someone who can help her find a new job, move on from childish friends, and speak with greater sophistication.

But as Samantha notices, more and more, Peter’s temper, she starts to wonder if there might be consequences to breaking the rules of the world he has so quickly built around her.

And then she receives an anonymous note that makes her ask: is she the first woman to feel trapped by Peter? Is she being paranoid, manipulated, or could she be in danger?

You can tell the truth about your life, but someone needs to be listening. Someone needs to trust you. And someone needs to save you from the man you thought you loved.

Her Last Move by John Marrs @johnmarrs1 #BrillianceAudio #Thriller #Crime #AudiobookReview

Hello friends,

It’s Bank Holiday here over in the UK so we get an extra long weekend YAY!

I’m super happy to bring you a review for this twisty little tale!

Why did you pick it up Vicci? – Well I have read a few of this authors books before and reviewed them on here, I have also picked up his latest book but it is on Pre-order from Audible so I have to wait .. boo! So I thought I’d dive in with this one first.

IntGdBN4_400x400

My Thoughts

I loved this thriller, it is full of twists and turns and a finale that I didn’t see coming, everything I love about a thriller.

We hear the story from multiple POV, one from DS Becca Vincent, and her partner, a ‘Super Recogniser’ Joe, and then from the serial killer themselves.

The opening scene sets the rest of the book up, we start with a packed tube station and a murder, DS Becca Vincent is there on her way to work, but she is quite far back and has her headphones in, so she doesn’t realise there is a problem until the police show up.

She is having struggles in her home life, she has a daughter with special needs and her mother has moved in with her to help, she is finding it difficult to juggle her home life with her career, and now it is going to get twice as tricky.

Joe is a ‘super recogniser’ (I had to google it myself, and it is an actual thing) He can look at a face and store it in his memory, and then pull it out maybe years later with a name.

From Wiki – The skill is recognised and employed among the British intelligence community.

In May 2015, the London Metropolitan Police officially formed a team made up of people with this heightened capability for recognising people and put them to work identifying individuals whose faces are captured on CCTV. Scotland Yard has a squad of over 200 super recognisers.

Who knew?? Well Becca didn’t for one, but Joe is the man that she is partnered with to try and catch this serial killer, who seems to have some sort of pattern, if only they could work out what it is!

Some grizzly murders and some great twists in this one, and a big WTF which I always enjoy.

John Marrs has written some great thrillers, and although this is not my absolute favourite of his, it is still a fantastic read.

🎧🎧 – Narrated by Elizabeth Knowelden who gave a fantastic performance, I will certainly be looking out for more books narrated by her.

But how can she identify one face in a sea of thousands? With the help of Police Super Recogniser Joe Russell, she strives to catch a glimpse of the elusive murderer, but he’s watching her every move.

Time is not on their side. The body count is rising, and the attacks are striking closer and closer to home. Can Becca and Joe uncover the connection between the murders before the killer strikes the last name from his list?

The Stolen Marriage by Diane Chamberlain @D_Chamberlain @MacmillanAudio #AudiobooReview #Historical #Mystery

How are we all today book buddies?

Happy to bring you a review of this Historical Fiction book that had me gripped.

Why did you pick it up Vicci? – I’ve already read one of this authors books and reviewed it on here, and I really like her writing style, I also want to start reading more Historical books as I had previously given them a wide berth.

IntGdBN4_400x400

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed this story and it is the second I have read from this author.

Tess DeMello is happy, she is engaged to a wonderful man, and is excited to become his wife, her husband-to-be is a doctor and is very passionate about his work, so much so, he hot foots it to Chicago to help out with the Polio epidemic that seems to be rife there.

She naturally misses him, and his time there seems to be getting longer and longer, each call she gets from him seems to be him changing the date that he will be coming home, this turns into months.

He friend tries to snap her out of her slump by inviting her to go away with her for a couple of days to her aunts house who lives out of town, but when they get there, it seems that her aunt has had to leave for a few days and has left instructions for them to have a good time, unfortunately there are also 2 men staying in the house with them.

Tess is very cautious about this, but they soon start chatting and the gentlemen invite them out for a friendly meal, which turns into an evening of bad choices for Tess, too much alcohol and another bad decision leads her into being single, pregnant and alone.

After finding out where the father of her unborn child lives, Tess breaks off her engagement, packs a bag and leaves to find him, Henry does the right thing and moves her in with him, and promptly marries her.

But things are not right in the house, Henry doesn’t seem to be the man she thought he was, and why doesn’t he want to spend any time with her?

A fab little mystery that had me guessing all the way through.

A great read, I personally thought that Tess was not totally to blame in this situation, Yes she had drunk too much alcohol and was a little worse for wear, but I didn’t really see any consent going on, I don’t remember Tess saying No, but she also didn’t say Yes, and I think really that Henry took advantage of the situation.

🎧🎧 – Narration was perfectly done by Susan Bennett and I will certainly be looking out for more of her narration.

IntGdBN4_400x400

About the Book

The Stolen Marriage
By: Diane Chamberlain
Narrated by: Susan Bennett
Length: 14 hrs and 7 mins
Publisher: Macmillan Digital Audio

One mistake, one fateful night, and Tess DeMello’s life is changed forever.

It is 1944. Pregnant, alone, and riddled with guilt, twenty-three-year-old Tess DeMello abruptly gives up her budding career as a nurse and ends her engagement to the love of her life, unable to live a lie. Instead, she turns to the baby’s father for help and agrees to marry him, moving to the small, rural town of Hickory, North Carolina. Tess’s new husband, Henry Kraft, is a secretive man who often stays out all night, hides money from his new wife, and shows her no affection. Tess quickly realizes she’s trapped in a strange and loveless marriage with no way out.

The people of Hickory love and respect Henry but see Tess as an outsider, treating her with suspicion and disdain. When one of the town’s golden girls dies in a terrible accident, everyone holds Tess responsible. But Henry keeps his secrets even closer now, though it seems that everyone knows something about him that Tess does not.

When a sudden polio epidemic strikes Hickory, the townspeople band together to build a polio hospital. Tess knows she is needed and defies Henry’s wishes to begin working at there. Through this work, she begins to find purpose and meaning. Yet at home, Henry’s actions grow more alarming by the day. As Tess works to save the lives of her patients, can she untangle the truth behind her husband’s mysterious behavior and find the love—and the life—she was meant to have?

The Bone Collector by Jeffery Deaver (Lincoln Rhyme, #1) #Mystery #Thriller #Crime #AudiobookReview

Hello book friends,

A little Oldie-but-goldie review today, I keep meaning to read the rest of the series but keep getting distracted but other pretty books Lol

Why did you pick it  up Vicci? – Well it was an Audible Daily Deal so I thought ‘Why not!’ I’d already seen the movie about a hundred times so I was interested in how the book measured against it.

IntGdBN4_400x400

My Thoughts

WOAH this is sooo much better than the movie, and I loved the movie (I must have seen it 20 times)

Lincoln Rhyme is a forensic criminalist who is good as his job, brilliant in fact and was often called to help with crime scenes as he is the best…… was the best.

After a terrible accident Lincoln has ended up lying in a hospital bed and paralysed, now as a quadriplegic Lincoln can only dream of his old job, until he gets a visit from an old friend.

There has been a murder, a gruesome one at that, and the murderer has left clues to another one that is going to happen, the clues were found by Amelia Sachs, a street cop who is then paired with Rhymes to help solves these grizzly crimes.

Lincoln and Sachs are a good pairing, him in his bed talking Amelia through what he wants her to do.
He is also a very angry man who doesn’t want to live any more, and has arranged his own suicide, however the job seems to be getting his creative juices flowing again.

I liked the narration of this book and the gruesome murders were even more graphic when they are being spoken to you.

If you have seen the movie i would take it with a pinch of salt, it is completely different to the book, different murders, people, even the bad guy at the end is different.

So even though it is a brilliant movie, the book always does it better.

IntGdBN4_400x400

About the book

Lincoln Rhyme was once a brilliant criminologist, a genius in the field of forensics — until an accident left him physically and emotionally shattered. But now a diabolical killer is challenging Rhyme to a terrifying and ingenious duel of wits.

With police detective Amelia Sachs by his side, Rhyme must follow a labyrinth of clues that reaches back to a dark chapter in New York City’s past — and reach further into the darkness of the mind of a madman who won’t stop until he has stripped life down to the bone.

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus @writerkmc @PenguinUKBooks #AudiobookReview #YA #Mystery #Thriller

Hi Book lovers! Vicci again,

I love a good YA read, but I also love to get my teeth into a good Thriller, so this one was killing two birds with one stone.

Why did I pick it up? – This is the author of One of Us is Lying, a great YA book that I really enjoyed last year, so I grabbed this one as soon as I could.

Two Can Keep a Secret
By: Karen McManus
Narrated by: Sophie AmossKirby Heyborne
Length: 10 hrs and 6 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
Release date: 10-01-19
Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd

My Thoughts

This was a great little Thriller that kept me on my toes, and thinking “It was him…NO it was her…NO it was them..NO, who the hell is it?”

Ellery and her twin brother Ezra are going to live with their grandmother, while their mother is away in Rehab, Echo Ridge is their mothers hometown and this is the twins first time there.

The twins soon find that the town is seeped in secrets and lies, and it also seems that girls seem to go missing.  5 years ago a girl went missing and was found murdered, this is not the first time this has happened int this town, and it seems like history is going to start repeating itself again!

Ellery is a True Crime nut, and things just don’t seem right to her.

🎧🎧 – Narrated by Sophie Amoss, and Kirby Heyborne,

They did a fantastic job narrating this book and kept me on my toes throughout.

81DitPFuVqL

About the Book

Ellery’s never been to Echo Ridge, but she’s heard all about it. It’s where her aunt went missing at age 16, never to return. Where a homecoming queen’s murder five years ago made national news. And where Ellery now has to live with a grandmother she barely knows, after her failed-actress mother lands in rehab. No one knows what happened to either girl, and Ellery’s family is still haunted by their loss.

Malcolm grew up in the shadow of the homecoming queen’s death. His older brother was the prime suspect and left Echo Ridge in disgrace. His mother’s remarriage vaulted her and Malcolm into Echo Ridge’s upper crust, but their new status grows shaky when mysterious threats around town hint that a killer plans to strike again. No one has forgotten Malcolm’s brother – and nobody trusts him when he suddenly returns to town.

Ellery and Malcolm both know it’s hard to let go when you don’t have closure. Then another girl disappears, and Ellery and Malcolm were the last people to see her alive. As they race to unravel what happened, they realize every secret has layers in Echo Ridge. The truth might be closer to home than either of them wants to believe.

And somebody would kill to keep it hidden.

The Flower Girls by Alice Clark-Platts @aclarkplatts @EmiliaFox @audibleuk @BloomsburyRaven #Thriller #Mystery #AudiobookReview

The sun is finally shining here in the gloomy UK, I’m not sure how long it is going to last, but my windows are all open, and I can hang my washing on the line Wahoo!

I get so excited about the most ridiculous things 😂

I am super happy to bring you my review of this fab little thriller.

 
Why did I pick it up? – I received a paper copy of this last year, my first unsolicited paperback, I was so excited lol, but because I am an audio girl I patiently waited for this one to be released, and then grabbed it as soon as I could.

My Thoughts

This one is a bit of a slow burner, it starts off at a steady pace, but once it gets it’s heels in, it’s a race to the finish line, and I think a photo finish is just what it deserves!

1997 – Laurel and Primrose (Rosie for short) are sisters, Laurel is 10 and Rosie is 6, they are out playing in the park when they entice a small toddler to play down the canal path with them.

The body of that toddler is later discovered brutally murdered and the 2 girls dubbed The Flower Girls in court are arrested, unfortunately Rosie is too young to be prosecuted, so Laurel stands trial for murder.

Rosie and her parents are given new identities because of the media backlash and they move far away.

Laurel serves her time, and 19 years later is up for parole, but the family of the murdered toddler have strong objections.

Meanwhile, Hazel and her boyfriend are at a fancy hotel celebrating her 25th Birthday when a little 5 year old girl goes missing.

The similarities between Hazel and the lesser known Rosie are noticed.

Could she be the missing Flower Girl?

Could she be responsible for the missing girl?

🎧🎧 – Narrated by Emilia Fox who is a regular on TV in the UK in things like Silent Witness.

Emilia did an outstanding job narrating this one, I was very impressed with her narration skills, and will certainly not hesitate in buying another book that he has narrated again.

If you are familiar with the news in the UK, then you may remember the murder of James Bulger, this was the first thing that popped into my head while reading this, I remember it being on every TV channel, and in every newspaper when I went into the shops, so I think that the media portrayal in this book was very well done.

**Thank you to Bloomsbury Raven and the author for sending me a copy of the book

The Liar by Nora Roberts #NoraRoberts @justjanuary @audible_com #AudiobookReview #Mystery #Romance

Another day, another Nora Roberts, where has she been all of my life!

Why did I pick it up? – I’m not sure why I didn’t ever pick up anything by Nora Roberts, I think I’ve mentioned before that The Witness is one of my favourite reads, but for some reason I had the idea that Roberts was a bit like Danielle Steele or Mills & Boon (I have no idea why)
So her books didn’t even pass my radar.

Silly me, i’m currently making my way through a few of them, and I’ve loved them all so far!

This one had me gasping, swooning, and wishing I was part of the family. To me, it felt a little like one of the Rock Chick books by Kristen Ashley with all of the family dynamics, and I loved it!

My Thoughts

This story is about Shelby Foxworth, she comes from a “hick” town in Tennessee, and was swept off of her feet by a rich businessman. They were married very quickly and soon became pregnant.

A boating holiday was to be the downfall of their marriage, unfortunately due to her daughter being ill, Shelby stayed behind, but her husband nevertheless went alone, there was an accident, and he died.

When Shelby starts to deal with the aftermath, bills etc. she comes to find that her husband wasn’t the man she thought she married at all, in fact, alongside the millions of dollars in debt that he left her in, it also seems that he was a cheater and a liar, in fact he didn’t even really exist at all!

Moving back to her family home she tries to start living her life again, but trouble has a way of catching up with you!

🎧🎧 – Narrated by my #VoiceCrush January LaVoy, who was awesome as always, this one was a fantastic read.

About the book

The extraordinary new novel by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Collector.

Shelby Foxworth lost her husband. Then she lost her illusions …

The man who took her from Tennessee to an exclusive Philadelphia suburb left her in crippling debt. He was an adulterer and a liar, and when Shelby tracks down his safe-deposit box, she finds multiple IDs. The man she loved wasn’t just dead. He never really existed.

Shelby takes her three-year-old daughter and heads south to seek comfort in her hometown, where she meets someone new: Griff Lott, a successful contractor. But her husband had secrets she has yet to discover. Even in this small town, surrounded by loved ones, danger is closer than she knows—and threatens Griff, as well. And an attempted murder is only the beginning …

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch @blakecrouch1 @audible_com #AudiobookReview #JonLindstrom #SciFi #Thriller #Mystery

Well this fancy little mindfluff was certainly something that I didn’t see coming.

Why did I pick it up? – Well, if you know me at all you will know that I cannot let everyone have all of the fun, I saw this book being read, reviewed and enjoyed all over the place…..That was my queue to jump into that madness, and what a ride it was!

Jason has a great life, he is married to the woman of his dreams Daniela, and they have a fantastic 15 year old son Charlie.

Did his life go the way he planned it? Not really, he didn’t see himself as a Physics Professor at a college, and his wife Daniela didn’t see herself giving up her budding art career to be a housewife, but they are happy with the choices they made, I mean who ever manages to get there ultimate dream?

Jason pops out one evening, to quickly say congratulations to his buddy at a bar as he has just won a prestigious award, Daniela tells him that dinner will be ready for him when he comes back, and to grab some Ice cream for her. He does exactly that.

Except he gets back to the car, only to be held up by a masked gunman, who makes him drive at gunpoint to the middle of nowhere, just before he promptly bonks him on the head, the man asks him “Are you happy with your life?”

After eventually waking up with a sore head, Jason finds he can’t move, looking around he finds that he is strapped to a gurney, surrounded by people in hazmat suits, asking where he is, he is told “Welcome back, my friend.”

Jason doesn’t understand what is going on, he tries his best to get back to his wife and child, but the thing is, he was never married to Daniela, and Charlie was never born, even stranger than that, Jason is a celebrated genius who was the person to discover the impossible!

🎧🎧 – Narrated by Jon Lindstrom, this crazy clever little Sci-Fi book had me sitting on the edge of my seat multiple times.

His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible. Is it this world or the other that’s the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could’ve imagined—one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe. From the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy, Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human—a relentlessly surprising science-fiction thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we’ll go to claim the lives we dream of.

May all of your dreams come true!
