This amazing father and daughter writing team, Jeff and Erynn Altabef, have done it again and gone a little farther. More Chosen have joined the company bringing their gifts, talents and weaknesses to defeat the evil ones…if they can defeat the challenges within themselves.
If you have not read the first book, you might do well to do so. But it can be read alone.
The book comes in paperback and Kindle. If you have Amazon Prime, you can read the book for free on Kindle.
The cheeky Porter Girl is off on yet another adventure dragging The Professor and all of her readers. And it all begins with an innocent cup of tea. So, fasten your seat belt and take a deep breath. Mayhem of all sorts is about to wreak havoc.
Blanche addresses the issue of racial bias in this story. But not the kind you were probably thinking. This story has Blanch in her usual domestic position, but from a perspective that makes everyone take a second look. She looks at the bias that black people have to the varying shades of “black.”
The action runs through the story with people disappearing and corpses. Even the dead, apparently, leave a baggage of bias behind them. Blanche determines to get to the bottom of all the shenanigans, and comes very close to sleuthing herself into a coffin of her own.
I love reading Blanche’s books. She is out to find the truth, even if it means pointing it out to friends…or alleged friends. Laughs and tears abound. And she always makes me think.
Blanche White works as a domestic in Boston where she lives with her dead sister’s teenage children and their cousin. As if that were not enough drama, the house where she works seems to have more secrets than even Blanche can keep up with.
During this season of political glad handing everyone in the family seems to be up to something. Or else they are dying.
Last, but not least, Blanche’s children are in danger. Drug dealers are looking for something of value that has disappeared.
The book is a page turner that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
This post apocalyptic coming of age story is full of action. Three young adult live in a small village where it is dangerous to flout the status quo. Those who flaunt the law pay dearly. When anyone in the village gets out of line, he or she is taken by the vicars, who are the law, to be educated.
Orah, Nathaniel and Thomas were good friends, but Thomas fell afoul of the vicars who then took him off for a “teaching.” When he was sent back to the village, he was a broken young man. It was as though the life had been sucked out of him. Orah and Nathaniel were also targeted for “teachings.” Rather than submit to the vicar, they choose to go on a quest to find a better life.
Dystopian literature is found almost every where anymore. But don’t think this is more of the same. The Children of Darkness has its own interesting plots and twists and turns. One of the best parts is that it is only the beginning of this story and there is more to come.
