I loved The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind, and if you enjoy quirky humor, sci-fi, and fantasy, you'll enjoy this one too!
The Caladrius Chronicles is a fairly new Vella with an outstanding voice, introducing us to an escaped science experiment trying to survive a dystopian cityscape long enough to save their family.
Beechwood has been thriving on Kindle Vella and now I certainly understand why! The prose will pull you in to a sci-fi world that maintains a contemporary feel, as a hidden enclave of meta humans has to deal with the first ever murder in its community.
You never quite know what you're going to get with a Lester story, which makes for great thrilling and suspenseful reads. His voice throughout is very distinct, and he does well to create an ominous atmosphere, while also providing levity and irreverence.
I am a hit or miss fantasy reader, but all you bookworms looking for your next magical female chosen one, may want to buckle in for Rysa's amazing journey!
Hawkins is not only one of the most prolific Vella writers on the scene right now, but arguably one of its biggest rising stars.
Go read Dark, it'll grip you from the first line and I doubt it ever lets go!
The contemporary nature of this novel is incredibly inviting, and the looming suspense will make it difficult for readers to put down.
But my favorite dynamic is the mother-son relationship, as a 12 year old tries to raise himself under an alcoholic's roof.
Nearly six months later, this book still sticks with me, and I am excited to say it was definitely my favorite book from 2021, and it's up there as an all time favorite.
