In this masterful post-apocalyptic tale, a Fly Flu has decimated the human population, leaving only a few young stragglers alive. Connected in ways that stretch beyond mere survival, this eccentric cast of memorable characters try their best to find hope and love in a world gone dark and cold. ⁣ ⁣
I absolutely enjoyed this remarkable story, and the philosophical questions it raises about survival, love, grief, death, and moving on. A tear jerker, for sure, and a journey that’s wholly unforgettable! I highly recommend this gem! ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

Every broken world, no matter how damaged it is, can be fixed, and the only price to pay is a human sacrifice... In this mind bending horror story that effortlessly explores the concept of interdimensional traveling, demons, and dark magic, "The Book of Accidents" places a tight knit family in the center of it all, testing how resilient the bonds of unconditional love is against the encroaching, twisted shadow of pain and evil that is being forcibly thrust upon them.
A worthy, terrifying read; I am forever a fan of Chuck Wendig! ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon
