Book Trailers: Pandemic by Scott Sigler

Every second Saturday I share a book trailer of new releases, books we (other readers and myself) love, want to read, and anything that fits in with BA, in the hopes of helping readers find something new to enjoy.


If you’d like to share a trailer for other readers to watch, including if it is your own, please read through my Special Features Policy and feel free to forward any enquiries.

Review: Leviathan by Jared Sandman

Kept hidden from mankind forever, it is about to surface.

When it rises up, the mighty are terrified.

After a rash of violent attacks throughout the Caribbean, marine biologist Kelly Andrews captures evidence of an unidentified predator species in the Atlantic.  Something unknown to science, something altogether new . . . or else something very old. 

It makes the depths churn like a boiling cauldron and stirs up the sea.

Billionaire Oscar Wright learns of the sea monster’s existence, which he considers to be the Biblical Leviathan.  Driven mad by grief, the old man devotes his vast fortune to kill the beast for a personal vendetta, harvest its hide as the ultimate trophy.

Nothing on earth is its equal — a creature without fear.

Two separate expeditions race across the ocean to find the animal.   And when it’s finally located, one thing becomes clear:  humanity no longer tops the food chain. Continue reading

Giveaway: Win An ARC of Bandits by LM Preston!

EDIT: I’m running this giveaway for another day (well really two days) because I haven’t been able to get online to end it and announce the winner. So now it will end tomorrow at 8pm (Tuesday the 19th) AEST. Get in there quick before it ends!

I’m excited because it’s giveaway time! If you follow my blog and my little rambles you might remember me mentioning Bandits by L.M. Preston several times now, at least I feel like I’ve been talking about it quite a bit (here’s my review and here’s Preston’s guest post).

Well now you can win yourself your very own ARC, that’s right, your very own Advanced Readers Copy of Bandits to enjoy!

A little about Bandits if you have no idea what I’m on about and just want to get to the giveaway part – Bandits is an action packed young adult science fiction/fantasy novel set mostly on the planet Merwin.

It follows the adventure of Daniel and his friends after his father is murdered. Daniel not only has to find out who these people are, but is also in a race against time to prevent a world wide catastrophe.

Bandits has a little bit of romance, strong and interesting characters, a sense of humour, a diverse ecological setting, and plenty of action. For a full synopsis check out my review, but otherwise on to the giveaway!
