Hooked on Books

Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece

Race across the Jungle, Desert, Ocean & Mountain -the Brimstone Bleed

Fire & Flood - Victoria Scott

This is just what I needed tonight, a little bit of action! : ) The story reminds me of the show the Amazing Race. Contenders are selected to take part in a four month race, the Brimstone Bleed, in order to win a cure for someone in their family that is dying. There are so many more layers to the story then that though. I was really pleasantly surprised by how good it was because some of the reviews aren't very good. I liked it a lot though and I think I held my breath through half of it. It's one of those stories where once you start reading, you won't want to put it down until you finish. I got both the first and second book, Salt & Stone, at the same time and I'm really glad I did. Without saying too much, the story is split up so you'll definitely want to read them together.
