Writers read. We might have as much time to do it as we’d like, but most of us always have something waiting on the Kindle, the Nook or the iPad.
Since I am knee-deep in a new book under deadline, I shouldn’t be involved in any book, but. . .I’ve wanted to read this one for a long time, and I finally just said heck with it.
The good news is that this book is excellent, and I’m so enjoying it. The bad news is that I can’t just sit and read it, since I’m only allowed to read before bed or when I’m in a situation where I absolutely cannot write (think: in line at the drugstore, sitting the car waiting on a kid. . .)
But this shouldn’t stop you from running to pick up Myndi Shafer’s HANNA, HANNA, ONE AND TWO. It’s on iBooks and Amazon, AND it’s also included in the amazing eleven book box set LOVE POTION NO 11, which includes eleven full-length novels for only 99 cents.
Twenty-two year old Johanna Cochrin’s world is broken. Eating mists ravage the plains, and wilder-than-most hunt and kill in all but the most protected lands. Sickness shadows the populace, and the minds of men are slipping. And even though there’s something she would do about it, she can’t. She’s a prisoner.
After witnessing her brother’s brutal murder, she’s spent the better part of the last decade in self-imposed silence, hell-bent on taking his secret to the grave. Even if that means living the rest of her life confined in a remote government compound.
But when she is kidnapped from that compound, her silence becomes a liability. Annabel Haier, the ruthless dictator of a fragile government, will stop at nothing to see Johanna back in her clutches and sacrificed to a time-altering Device. If Johanna is to survive, she must learn to trust people she has never met and share the secrets she never meant to share. And if she is to discover her place in the world, she must come to terms with her own mortality – a thing that has the power to save, or condemn her broken world.
