I’m about halfway done Never Coming Home by Hannah Mary McKinnon. I really like the narration. He speaks to the reader sometimes, and I find that just very interesting. I can’t wait to see who is messing with him.

First comes love. Then comes murder. Lucas Forester didn’t hate his wife. Michelle was brilliant, sophisticated and beautiful. Sure, she had extravagant spending habits, that petty attitude, a total disregard for anyone below her status. But she also had a lot to offer. Most notably: wealth that only the one percent could comprehend. For years, Lucas has been honing a flawless plan to inherit Michelle’s fortune. Unfortunately, it involves taking a hit out on her. Every track is covered, no trace left behind, and now Lucas plays the grieving husband so well he deserves an award. But when a shocking photo and cryptic note show up on his doorstep, Lucas goes from hunter to prey. Someone is on to him. And they’re closing in. Told with dark wit and a sharply feminist sensibility, Never Coming Home is a terrifying tale of duplicity that will have you side-eyeing your spouse as you dash to the breathtaking end.

I admit it – I always worry about reading books written by blog friends – for reasons you can imagine (what if I hate it, etc..). But I shouldn’t have worried about reading Teri’s duology because boy it delivered. I read the two books in two days and couldn’t put either down. My review will be posted tomorrow on the publication day for The Insurgent,

If a megalomaniac threatened your family, would you give up your freedom for them? Would you give up your soul? Asher Solomon is faced with that choice. And makes the ultimate sacrifice. Exactly as Director Silas Reeves expected him to. Unable to live as the Colony’s premier assassin, Ash retreats to a corner of his mind, ceding control of his body to the alter-ego he was engineered to be—Subject A36. As he’s unleashed to battle the Insurgents, the only family he ever knew, the tide of war shifts in Silas’s favor. Combined with his expansion into new territories, the director is poised to take over the world. But the Insurgents don’t give up easily. Not on their cause, and not on their people. With the help of a few double agents deep in the Colony, they stand a fighting chance at ending Silas’s reign. In order to shut down the program, they face almost insurmountable odds. And their most dangerous foe—their former champion turned killing machine, A36.

Did you notice all the mentions about dragons in the blurb of Together We Burn by Isabel Ibanez? Be still my heart! I actually was invited to an author event about an hour and a half away with Isabel Ibanez. I must say, it has me thinking of making the trip.
