Twisted Concepts?

Standard

Here are 17 books, I think, have unusual twists and/or concepts. I’ve read them all, but please note they are in no particular order. Hope you find something you enjoy!

1) Partials by Dan Wells (part of a trilogy) Partials2

A Young Adult, Science fiction, Dystopian, Fantasy. I’ve suggested an age range for this book of 15+.

The two enemies will have to set aside their past wrongs and differences in order to survive. Continue reading

Ring of Conscience by James Stoddah

Standard

My thoughts:

The best thing about this novel is not only the gripping, fast-paced, addictive storyline, but the mystery is also a reality. James Stoddah has created two websites, one from the story itself and the second, another, real life, treasure hunt for readers to participate in and enjoy. (I will put links to the websites below).

The characters are extremely likeable, even the villains, which surprisingly, I felt sorry for some of the antagonists. There is a clash of opinions and emotions between all the characters with a couple of unstable bad guys thrown in the mix, making this story very intriguing indeed. Continue reading
