Since I was a teen I've suffered recurring apocalyptic nightmares, stuff like RED DAWN where we're being invaded and I'm traveling the U.S., trying to stay alive amid the enemy and chaos. And there are always sexy undertones to these frighteningly realistic dreams. After all these years I think it's time to put those nightmares to good u ...more

The edge of extinction wasn’t a place childhood friends Amber Tate, and Rylen Fite, ever thought they’d find themselves. Growing up in rural Nevada, Amber believed the only thing that could destroy her was her unrequited love for Rylen. She was wrong.

It may be tagged with romance but you will only find the amount of romance you would expect in the first few pages of the average romance novel. By that I mean the attraction, the interest, the friendship but none the kissing or moving towards a relationship that you normally see. As a matter of fact, there is a huge event that makes it clear that's not in the cards. And it was hard to read for this romantic at heart. I understand that changes for ...more
The story is about Amber, her love for her brother's friend, and her family. I love the way the author included her she met Rylen and grew up together an the way her feelings for him grew as they become adults. Now faced with an unknown enemy that is bombing people all over the world they have to stick ...more
When I learned that Wendy Higgins would self-publish a new series I was quite excited! It came as a surprise and for someone like me who was introduced late to her previous series "The Sweet Trilogy", I was sold.
The story follows Amber and her family who live quite normal in Nevada. She has a long crush on her brother's best friend Rylen, yet she is way too shy to confess her feelings.
But when the bombings begin and a national spread illness begins to ...more
Where do I even start? This was an action
packed story from beginning to end.
So I am basically still freaking out about
this book and I have to concentrate in order to be able to write this review
without making it just a load of fangirl words and squeals/shrieks.
did I know that I was in for a huge, gigantic and massive surprise when I picked
best combination of words that I can use to describe this book won’t
Life is filled with good and bad. We have to appreciate the good while we have it.What impresses me the most is that Wendy Higgins manages to become better and better with every book she writes. Her debut Sweet Evil was rather mediocre, and her sophomore novel The Great Hunt was entertaining. Unknown, however, is atmospheric and frighteningly plausible.
When an unknown organization starts bombing major cities across the world, Amber Tate knows that the world as she knows it will be turned up ...more
As a Latina, I am very offended with the way the author wrote about us. I am outraged that she stereotyped my people. I will be writing a full discussion on my blog soon, then update this.
♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪
♫Hanging By A Moment by Lifehouse --One of my all time favorite songs…feels just right for Amber and Rylen and also for the overall feel of the story.♫
This book…wow, I loved this book and I am desperately wanting to read book 2 and I think it's killing my chances of liking anything else (book wise), lately. I just don't want to read it quite yet, because book 3 doesn't come out until November. I'm trying space them o ...more
Growing up in their small Nevada town, she has done a good job of hiding her feelings, but it’s getting harder and harder to do. Then something happens and the country is at war with an unknown entity. Bombs go off all around the US and all, save one elected leader, is killed. What happens when leadership is gone and things ...more
This is a portion of my email [edited to remove spoilers] to Wendy upon finishing the book--which I read in a short amount of time. I couldn't put it down!
"I finished UNKNOWN, and I'm going to need Book Two like yesterday, okay? Thanks.
I really enjoyed the story, especially the old school Red Dawn vibe it had going on! I still remember how scared I was to go to school after watching that movie, convinced enemy soldiers were going parachute onto the playground and take me hostage.
I lik ...more
I asked myself, Jen, how many more times do you think this dumb bitch Amber is going to get dizzy and/or collapse again so men can worry over her? I mean, Jen, she's only gotten dizzy and collapsed seven times already. There's room for more.
This should have been a book about a tough as nails nurse, fighting her way through the collapse of the United States, having new adult sexy times with he ...more
Two of my favorite things about the story:
(1) It's not all about the romance. It's there (complete with sexy-hot tension and painful misunderstandings), simmering in the background or making an appearance in quiet mome ...more
On the other hand, it was completely addictive. I was up until 2am reading, and it was so realistically creepy and believable. I'm looking forward to book 2!
The book starts off a bit slow; giving us the backstory to Amber and her “unrequited” love with her brother’s best frien ...more
