Scorpion

Updated: Jul 29

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the SCORPION by Jeff Sweat Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours.


This was quite an interesting read that has you gain curiosity for the direction that Jeff Sweat's vision for Southern California in a near future. This portrayal of an imminent future future was well within the realm of possibility and the paired narrative makes you really sympathize with this great cast of characters. I'll certainly have to check out the first book though to get further reference!

But there's a lot the Old Guys aren't telling them. In fact, some of them don't seem interested in solving the End at all and just want Jemma and her friends to leave. Meanwhile, war is brewing among the tribes of the rest of the Children. Jemma's old home has fallen into disorder, and is far from prepared for battle. It won't be long before the fighting reaches Jemma and the Old Guys, if they even live to see it.
