This week’s book is Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Horror
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Pub. Date: 20th February 2018
Soo, I don’t usually read sci fi and horror books but there is something about the plot (and the awesome cover to be fair) that just made me really want to read it.
There is still quite some time before the book is released but I’m really exited about this one especially since I would be trying something different from usual.
Let’s see the plot:
Tuck Durante is a shipraider, combing space for Earth artifacts from a war that ended 500 years ago. When his parents’ ship crashes in the dead zone and the crew goes missing, Tuck hires a ragtag rescue team.
Meanwhile, curator Lana Gray is fighting to keep the US PANAM John Muir—and the remnants of its crew—alive. Their space capsule housing Yosemite National Park was hijacked. The hijacking turned ninety-five percent of her crew into nightmarish creatures called mourners who flay, dismember, or decapitate with nothing more than sharp-pitched shrieks.
Now, despite their differences, Lana, Tuck, and their crews must work together to save the John Muir. In space, nobody can hear you scream…but on the John Muir, the screams are the last thing you’ll hear.
Hope you like my choice, let me know what you think about this book and if you already knew this author. 🙂
