This week’s spotlighted author is John Hennessy…
About the Author – Born in 1988, John Hennessy became entranced by the world of fantasy at a young age, playing video games and reading books for many long nights/early mornings. He recently graduated from Western Washington University, and now lives in the green land of Bellingham, at work on the second book in The Cry of Havoc series.
Night 1: 12 billion taken. Day 1: Confusion.
Night 2: 13 billion taken. Day 2: Panic.
Night 3: 13 billion taken. Day 3: The fight for survival begins.
In 2048, the human population borders 39 billion after the termination of
the birth control industry, and the realities of overcrowding have sunken
into the minds of the world, until billions mysteriously go missing. In
the wake of civilization’s collapse, a trio of teenage gamers from
Washington struggle to endure. Maggy, a strong-willed intellectual, leads
Darrel and Félix, two shy geeks, on an expedition down the west coast, as
they try to determine the source of humanity’s downfall.
At the End is a fast-paced post-apocalyptic sci-fi novel geared toward
teen+, featuring two strong female protagonists and two geeky male
protagonists. The book’s chapters alternate from Darrel’s point of view
and Maggy’s point of view.

This week I found:
At The End by John Hennessy just sounded so interesting and I like the dystopians born of realistic orgins (so population explosion is an intersting one). Found this on a Goodreads thread looking for readers. Looking forward to reading this and as it was gifted from the author I will be reading/reviewing it first – I love it when a plan comes together 🙂
The only other book I picked up this week was from one of the lovely security guards at work – I saw him reading it this week in the mess room and it looked interesting, so be brought it back for me to read. So because I’ve not bought it myself I’ve still been good 😉 it is Vlad but I can’t remember the author and so can’t find the cover from the numerous books named ‘Vlad’ on Goodreads – oh well – I’m sure I’ll be doing a review on it soon enough. I’m definitely heading for a vampire-themed reading phase – have about 10 in the tbr pile now!
So, not too many this week as I’ve been doing well with not buying any more books…let’s see how the reading pile looks next week 🙂
