BLOG TOUR – Lavender Dreams (Life after us #2) by Rebekah Dodson #dystopian @junctionpublish

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for LAVENDER DREAMS. This is book 2 in the Life after us series by Rebekah Dodson and is a gripping read that will appeal to readers of Dystopian fiction.

 

Lavender Dreams (Life after us #2) 

Available from AMAZON

On the run from invading forces, Vicki escapes into the woods with Ambrose. After his truck is stolen, she has to make a choice: accept her fiance, Will, is dead, or keep searching — possibly in vain. Can she learn to love Ambrose as she loved Will?

Khaki. That’s what everyone thinks of him, but Vicki knows the truth, and after that kiss, Ambrose yearns for more. He wants Vicki to forget about her fiance and accept the fact he is dead. They saw him being dragged off in handcuffs before the explosion!

But, what if he’s not dead?

What if he made it out alive?

When Vicki is kidnapped by terrorists, Ambrose fights to find the woman he loves. Yet their lavender dream promises of serenity may never come.


My thoughts

This is book 2 in the Life After Us series and it does work as stand alone but I would advise that Poppy Bloom is read first if possible.  Poppy Bloom ended on a cliff-hanger and that is where this book picks up.

The USA has been attacked and is now under the control of a group of ‘Military’ who are armed with high tech weapons capable of reducing people to dust.  Add to the mix a young girl with an agenda and danger is all around.

Ambrose and Vicky are on the run and Ambrose is injured just when they think they are safe they encounter more problems.

I do not normally read dystopian but I do like to read something different on occasion and read Poppy Bloom so I needed to know what happens next.

The characters build in depth and complexity as the book progresses to become well rounded, realistic characters with a strong will to survive.  The story is a very engaging one that kept the pages turning.

Again the book ends on a cliff-hanger so I am now waiting for the next in the series.

5 stars from me.

Many thanks to Junction Publishing for the advance copy.  This is my unbiased review and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
