Book Review // The Planetsider

Well here we are, it’s officially May! Can you believe that!? I know I can’t. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a while, you’ll know that each month, I review a different book. This keeps me going each month and helps me to achieve my Goodreads Reading Challenge, I would like to read a total of 15 books in 2018 and I’m currently on 15. For starting the fifth month, that’s not too bad going!

This month, I’ve got quite a few surprises that I can not wait to show you! I’m not going to let the cat out of the bag here though, you’ll have to stay tuned to find out what they are about. Today, I am sharing with you my thoughts on The Planetsider, thanks to participating in the Book Blog Tour hosted by Jenny Marston, over at Neverland Blog Tours.

I am the seventh stop on The Planetsider Blog Tour, I am also sharing today with Tangents and Tissues so please check out their blog to read what they thought.

Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to read The Planetsider, this month I have been a little preoccupied. I thought I would still introduce you to this Science Fiction book though, as it definitely sounds amazing. I’m really intrigued by the blurb and I’ve heard good things about G J Ogden as an author. Hopefully, once things have calmed down a little I’ll be able to read and review this book, so watch this space!

The Planetsider? Let me tell you a little bit about it;

Several generations after The Fall, the scattered clusters of civilisation that grew in its wake live in ignorance of the past. No-one wants to know what caused such devastation or why. No-one, except Ethan.

Ethan used to believe in the guardians; mysterious lights in the sky that, according to folklore, protect the survivors, so long as you believe in them. But the death of his parents shattered his faith and forged within him a hunger to know more. One night, a light grows brighter in the sky and crashes to the planet’s surface. Ethan then embarks on a heartbreaking journey in which harrowing discoveries unveil the secrets of the past, and place him at the centre of a deadly conflict.

Powerful, thought-provoking and emotionally absorbing, The Planetsider is a gripping, post-apocalyptic thriller that will keep you hooked until the very end.

G J Ogden
