The Nephilim Virus by John T. Prather

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from The Adams Group in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

The Nephilim Virus by John T. Prather was a book that I didn’t think I would enjoy reading but in the end, I loved the book.  I requested a copy of this book because I knew it would either be really good or terrible and I knew I wanted to find out which way it was going to go.  I had no idea who the author was when I saw this book and to be honest I still haven’t really looked him up because I couldn’t be careless that he is an actor.  I know I judge the book from the start because I was skeptical when it came to him being a writer and I loved that I was proved wrong because he is a fantastic author and I can’t wait to read more books by him in the future.

Anyway, let’s get on to talk about this book and my thoughts and feelings about it.  Like I said before I loved this book and I think I may like just as much like the book “1984”.  I can’t pinpoint what I want about this book, but I really did enjoy just about everything.  I really liked Nick right from the start but it did take some time for me to want Faith but by the end of the book I had fallen in love with her.  I didn’t like when they quoted big chunks of the bible because it just bored me.  Once I was in the middle of the book I just skipped those parts because I didn’t want to waste my time on those parts.  Other than that I loved this book.  If you like dystopian novels, then I would for sure check out this book.

About The Book

Nick Reese wakes from a three-year coma to find the world he once knew is gone. An ancient virus has infected two-thirds of the world’s population, turning humans into either incredibly intelligent super-humans or large and indestructible animalistic creatures. For the survivors, there is no government, no antidote, and no safety. With the help of a beautiful hematologist named Faith and a man they call the Commander, Nick must survive long enough to discover the origin of the virus and learn how his blood could hold the key to a cure. But he has to do it while being hunted by the infected. And failure means the extinction of the human race.

Author and Hollywood actor John Prather intertwines history, science, and the Bible to create a plausible post-apocalyptic tale. The Nephilim Virus is an intense thriller implementing spiritual ideas and subtle Christian symbolism. The Nephilim Virus is a nonstop race against time from beginning to end.

All Things Now Living by Rondi Bauer Olson

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

All Things Now Living by Rondi Bauer Olson was a good book.    I really did enjoy this book but I found that I was always comparing it to 1984 by George Orwell and Divergent by Veronica Roth.  Those are my favorite two books in this genre so I always end up comparing them all when I am reading.  Now with that being said I really did enjoy this book and I can’t wait to more books in this series.  Unlike the other books that I mention this book didn’t have anything it in that might offend people and I think it would be great for teenagers of all ages.  I really enjoyed this authors writing and like I said I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.  This book didn’t keep me on the edge of my seat and I was able to figure out how it was going to end but that didn’t bother me in the least.  If you love dystopian novels I am sure that you will enjoy this book as much I have.

Sixteen-year-old Amy doesn’t like anything to die, she won’t even eat the goats or chickens her mama has butchered every fall, but she can’t let herself pity the inhabitants of New Lithisle. In a few short months the dome they built to isolate themselves from the deadly pandemic is predicted to collapse, but her whole life Amy has been taught it’s God’s will they die.

Then, while on a scavenging trip with her father, Amy is accidentally trapped in New Lithisle. At first her only goal is to escape, but when she meets Daniel, a New Lithisle boy, she begins to question how less-than-human the people of New Lithisle are.

Sovereignty by Anjenique Hughes

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from iRead Book Tours in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

Sovereignty by Anjenique Hughes was a good book. Whenever I read books like this one I find that I am always comparing these books to the book “1984 by George Orwell”. I have always felt that books never quite measured up to that book but I really enjoyed this book so it is one that I would read again just like I would read 1984 over and over again. I liked this book right from the first page because I was left wanting to know what was going to happen and how things would work out in this book. This book kept me on the edge of my seat, and I wasn’t able to figure out what was going to happen, so I was always left wondering what was up next. If you love dystopian type books, I am sure you will love this book as much as I do.

The Remnant by Monte Wolverton

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

The Remnant by Monte Wolverton was an okay book to read. I did have a hard time getting into this book because it is a dystopian book and those types of books are hard for me to get into. This book was really well written but I found myself comparing this book to the book “1984 by George Orwell”.   I read that book back in high school and I always find myself comparing any dystopian books to that one.   In the end I really did enjoy this book. It was written well and it is a book that anyone who loves dystopian novels. It may take you a few chapters to get into the book so I would recommend giving it a couple of chapters before you give up on it.

About The Book

In the year 2069 the Apocalypse came and went, but Jesus didn’t show up, as some expected.

Instead, a cataclysmic war, natural disasters and pandemics eradicated 90 percent of earth’s population. Now, in 2131, a totalitarian government rules the world from the majestic, opulent capitol of Carthage, Tunisia. Blamed for igniting the war, religion and religious books are banned. Citizens who will not renounce their religion are sent to work camps.

Grant Cochrin, imprisoned in a bleak petroleum camp in what was once North Dakota, leads his family and friends to escape and embark on a long, dangerous quest for a Christian community. Their resource in this journey? A cherished page torn from the now banished Bible—a remnant of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount handed down from Grant’s grandparents.

What if there were an Apocalypse and Jesus didn’t return? What if the survivors found themselves living in a world ruled by a totalitarian government, where religion is forbidden and all religious texts have been destroyed?

In The Remnant, award-winning author Monte Wolverton tells the tale of a band of concentration camp escapees who trek through the lawless American wilderness on a quest for authentic Christianity, only to come face to face with an unthinkable dilemma. The Remnant is a fast-paced story punctuated with dry satire, memorable characters and hard questions about religious institutions.
