Book Three of The Forgotten Ones trilogy

The Echo of a Thousand Voices by Jillian Webster is the third and final book of The Forgotten Ones trilogy. In only 408 pages the author creates a perfect ending to her series, packing the plot with adventure, romance, emotion, and the thrill of the unknown. She has managed to squeeze every emotional response possible out of my body through the use of her words. I can easily say that this book is my absolute favourite out of the series. Read more

Neands by Dan Salmon is an absolutely stunning story. There were some things I noticed that could be changed or explained better but overall, it was an awesome novel.
This story is based in the year 2022, and I feel it was aimed to imitate what is happening in the world now with Covid. A mutation of the genes is infecting humans and turning them into Neands. When this happens, they become vicious and harmful to humans. When the parents of main character Charlie disappear one day, he’s sent out on a quest to find them and figure out more about the disease. Read more
