Bryan Davis, my favorite author, has made Reapers, a dystopian adventure written by a Christian (what a novel idea), free on Kindle until April fourth. Here’s the Amazon description.
Reapers is a dystopian tale with a supernatural twist. Taking place in a futuristic, urban setting, this first book in a planned trilogy will appeal to readers of The Hunger Games and similar fast–paced stories for young adults. Along with a blend of real life and imagination, it delivers action, danger, and suspense through the adventures of three teenagers—Phoenix, Singapore, and Shanghai—Reapers who collect the souls of the dying or already dead and transport them to the Gateway where they will travel to their final destination … or so they are told.
This book is for teens, not for children. The atmosphere is quite dark, but, if you finish this book and read Beyond the Gateway, Reapers Series #2, it will get lighter.
In addition, there is some content for more mature readers. Use your discretion. But, if you’ve read a book like The Hunger Games, this book is probably has less of such content.
Personally, I liked the second book in the Reapers series more, but you can’t get to the sequel without reading the original. 🙂 (Well, technically you could, but I wouldn’t recommend it)
If you’re disappointed with the depression and darkness of the dystopian genre, start this series. It may start similar to others you’ve read, but by the end of the second book, it will be different and so much better.
Happy early weekend, everyone! Keep on writing! Now I had better leave and follow my own advice ;).
