Overview:

Chloe Burke has nightmares of a world burned to ash and the strange boy who saves them both.

Underneath the dreams lurks a deeply buried reality; Chloe and a handful of others are survivors of a decade old apocalypse that burned their home world to the ground.

Now their ancient enemies hunt them again. To keep their adopted world safe, Chloe must undergo a ritual of blood sacrifice that will have life-long consequences if she survives. Her lethal protector, Eliot Gray, must keep her alive long enough to do it.

Together they will uncover even more dangerous secrets buried in the past’s deepest, darkest ashes.

 

 

 

 

My Thoughts on Worlds Burn Through:

 
Worlds Burn Through is a really good intro for what I hope will be an exciting series: The Chronicles of Nowhere. The story gives you just enough to suck you into an enticing world, where the total destruction of our human world is nigh. A world where one girl who has lost her memory is all that stands between it.

 

We are quickly introduced to our main heroine, Chloe, though she has no idea what she is. There is also introduction of her guardian, the young man who plagues her dreams filled with fire. Eliot had been protecting her from the destructive forces who seek to kill her before she can bind herself and save them all – including the unknowingly human race.

 

But the main problem is Chloe doesn’t remember. She has no memories of the first time they fought the Abandoned – fiery creatures set on greed and destruction. Her parents, seeking to give her a normal life, had decided that it would be best for her not to remember, or to even know her past. This plan works out wonderfully until Chloe’s father, Arran, is murdered.

 

Now that’s all I’m going to give you folks. So if you want to know if Chloe succeeds, or if Eliot fails his ward, you’ll have to nab yourself a copy to read the more in-depth plot lines, action and extreme conflict.

 

For me this story was a major tease, and it does leave you hanging BIG time. I know some may not enjoy stories that just chop you off, but I relish in them. I can’t wait to see what happens next, and though it generally kills me to wait, I find I enjoy the suspense. I recommend this to young adults, although I’ll disclose that there is a cuss word or two in the book. I also feel that older teens, college aged, and adults who love fantasy can enjoy this story too.

 

I think it’s also best to point out that this is a novella – 78 pages. So it should make for a rather quick read, and this is why it works as a cliffhanger. But don’t let the size fool you. Worlds Burn Through is an adventure; an action packed novella that is sure to please.
