As Harper and the survivors of Flight 305 struggle to stay alive in the aftermath of the crash, they soon realize that this world is very different from the one they left. Their lives are connected, and some believe they've been brought here for a reason.
In addition to Harper, several other passengers seem to hold clues about why Flight 305 crashed. There's:
Nick Stone, an American on his way to a meeting with The Gibraltar Project, an international group dedicated to building a dam across the Strait of Gibraltar and draining the Mediterranean.
Sabrina Schröder, a German scientist who has unknowingly sealed the fate of half the flight's passengers.
Yul Tan, a Chinese-American computer scientist who has just made the breakthrough of a lifetime: a quantum internet capable of transmitting more data, farther, faster than ever thought possible. His invention, however, does much more than he ever dreamed possible.
With time running out to save the survivors of Flight 305, Harper and Nick race to unravel the conspiracy that crashed their plane. As they put the pieces together, they discover that their decisions have already doomed one world and will soon determine the future of ours.
But that’s just the beginning. Cacy has a secret life, and the breakneck pace of her high-stakes story propels this rich and utterly original fantasy. (You’d never guess how versatile an amulet can be!) Throw in a pulse-quickening romance and a memorable cast of flawed but often heroic characters, and the result is a darkly imaginative, genre-straddling story that offers much more than the sum of its parts.
But don’t take my word for it. I shared my now dog-eared copy with friends who are die-hard fans of romance novels, fantasy, or whodunits, and Sarah’s symbiotic weaving of elements from all three genres left everyone asking how soon they could read the sequel. Now that’s a true testament to a story.
So whether you want to heat up a winter night with the fiery love of two gorgeous protagonists, be teased by a gauntlet of potential villains, or simply bask in the escapism provided by all great entertainment, Sarah Fine’s new Servants of Fate series will beckon you in. Welcome to a world that greets adult readers warmly and leaves them with more than they came for.
Gideon’s warm disposition reminds me of his author, Alan Russell. Well over six feet tall and broad-shouldered, Alan cuts an imposing figure. I remember meeting him for the first time at a very crowded party and feeling quite small (I wasn’t; at the time I was obviously pregnant!).
But he’s affable, a natural storyteller—and the stories he tells are thrilling, funny, satisfyingly puzzling, and ultimately driven by the kind, thoughtful heart of a man who sent an ornament to commemorate my daughter’s first Christmas.
Guardians of the Night is a special book that, like all of Alan’s work, offers a fantastic “What if?” Then he delivers an ending that quenches my thirst for justice without supplying easy answers.
Meg Goodwin’s best friend Alex disappeared when they were reporting the unrest in Honduras. But Meg thinks her dangerous life as a journalist is behind her when she settles back in Arizona. Then a mysterious bleeding man turns up in her barn, and her life will never be the same again.
In this absorbing thriller, Meg must face not only drug cartels and corrupt politicians, but also an international cover-up. And if she survives, and solves the mystery of her lost friend, can she also find love?
