Book Suggestions: Salvation Day, by Kali Wallace (2019).

The title caught my eye whilst browsing and the description I found to be quite intrigueing. Not my usual read but it looks as though it may be worth taking a look.

Book Synopsis

They thought the ship would be their salvation.
 
Zahra knew every detail of the plan. House of Wisdom, a massive exploration vessel, had been abandoned by the government of Earth a decade earlier, when a deadly virus broke out and killed everyone on board in a matter of hours. But now it could belong to her people if they were bold enough to take it. All they needed to do was kidnap Jaswinder Bhattacharya—the sole survivor of the tragedy, and the last person whose genetic signature would allow entry to the spaceship.
 
But what Zahra and her crew could not know was what waited for them on the ship—a terrifying secret buried by the government. A threat to all of humanity that lay sleeping alongside the orbiting dead.
 
And then they woke it up.

Book Suggestions: Eye Spy, by Mercedes Lackey (2019).

The second book in the Family of pie series. The cover is sensational and I think will attract readers easily as it has myself. Perhaps this book could merit further investigation! 🧐🤔👀📖💡📚📗

Book Synopsis

Mags, Herald Spy of Valdemar, and his wife, Amily, the King’s Own Herald, are happily married with three kids. Their daughter, Abidela, dreams of building on her parents’ legacy by joining her father’s network of spies, hoping to offset her seeming lack of a Gift.

But when Abi senses the imminent collapse of a bridge only moments before it happens, she saves countless lives, including that of her best friend, Princess Katiana. The experience, though harrowing, uncovers her unique Gift—an ability to sense the physical strains in objects.

Intrigued by the potential of her Gift, the Artificers seek to claim her as their own—but only the Healers can train her. Through training with both of them, Abi discovers unique facets of her Gift, including a synesthetic connection to objects that allows her to “see” as well as feel the strains.

Her Gift may also grant her a distinct advantage as a spy—there won’t be a building in the entire kingdom of Valdemar with a secret room that she doesn’t know about. With the help of her mentors, she must hone her gift to uncover the hidden secrets in the depths of Valdemar.

Reading Suggestions – Across the Void, by S. K. Vaughn (2019).

The cover of this is quite different. It does look however that this might be quite a good book and definitely something to take a closer look at.

Book Synopsis

May Knox floats in space, the only survivor of a catastrophic accident. There is just one person who can save her: a man whose heart she broke, millions of miles away.

It’s Christmas Day, 2067.

Silent Night drifts across the ruins of a wrecked spaceship, listing helplessly in the black. A sole woman, May, stirs within – the last person left alive of a disastrous first manned mission to Europa, a moon of Jupiter.

There is only one person who can help her – her ex-husband Stephen, a NASA scientist who was heading up the mission back on Earth. Until, that is, she broke his heart and he left both her and the mission.

Now May clings to life and it is only his voice travelling across the fathomless miles that can bring her home.

In this twisty, gasp-inducing thriller, when each breath is a fight for survival, their relationship is the difference between life and death.
