Note: I scheduled this entry in advance so that it posts at 8:00 AM. I’ll be late getting the link posted on the host’s blog.
The meme is hosted by Reading at the Beach.
The rules are very simple: spotlight a book written by an author whose first or last name begins with the featured letter. Include the book cover, title and author, a synopsis, and link(s) to retailer(s). If it’s a book you’ve already reviewed, link to the review. Return to Reading at the Beach and leave a link in the comments.
This week’s letter is: K
This week pick: Kenin, Eve — Driven
From my review: It was suppose to be simple. Be the first to reach Gladow Station with a load of grain and receive a fat bonus. All Raina needed was a special license that would allow her to drive the transcontinental highway, and that was going to be supplied by a guy named Wizard. The problem? He was late for their meeting, and when he finally shows up, he incurs the wrath of a trucker gang. Thanks to this encounter, Wizard is without transportation, and Raina grudgingly allows him to tag along. With the license now useless, she is forced to take a more dangerous route through pirate territory if she wants to stay in the race. But the race is not what it seems, as she learns, and an enemy from her past has decided that the time is right to hunt her down. There are secrets about her family she doesn’t know about, and she finds herself falling for a man with secrets of his own. (Go here to read the rest)
Comment: Some weeks, I know which author/book I want to feature in this meme. This week, I had almost resigned myself to featuring a book I hadn’t read, when I stumbled across Ms. Kenin’s name in my database. I really liked the post-apocalyptic stories she wrote for the Shomi imprint. I chose Driven over Hidden because I liked it more.
