The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig

booksThe Fire Sermon is a great dystopian novel about what happens after all technology burns up in a nuclear apocalypse. It takes place years after the earth has been all but destroyed and the human gene pool has gone a bit wacky. For some reason, only twins are born — one twin is perfect (the Alpha) while the other twin is “deformed” in some way (the Omega). The connection between the twins (if one dies so does the other) is really cool and kind of freaky. You could just be walking around one day and drop dead because your twin got kicked in the head by a horse.

When Zach, an Alpha with a lot of ambition and power, turns on his twin Cass, an Omega whose “deformity” is a psychic ability, she finds herself on the run with an unexpected stranger. And she never expected to end up where she does. The twist that came at the end was unexpected and a little shocking. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!

Sweet by Emmy Laybourne

Sweet by Emmy Laybourne was really amazing but also freaky about how the events could downloadpossibly happen. The story takes place on a cruise ship. Most of the passengers are there to celebrate a brand new sweetener with great diet possibilities. But when the passengers ingest the sweetener, well, things start to go sour pretty quickly.

I liked how the story line switched between two people and showed them interacting from their different points of view. It drew me in immediately and held my interest all the way through. The twist that came from people taking the sweetener was unexpected and slightly freaky. It’s a great book that will intrigue and horrify anyone who picks it up.
