Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for 27 Hours by Tristina Wright. I will have my review and a giveaway below.
27 Hours by Tristina Wright
Publication Date: October 3, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.
But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.
Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.
They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.
During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.
27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.
Link to Goodreads:
To be honest, it took me longer than normal to read this book. That’s not a bad thing. I think it’s somewhat normal for me with sci fi and fantasy, but I also think I was in a bit of a reading slump. The first 40% went slower than I liked, but the last 60% was fast paced which really helped me out.
I loved all the people, but also the chimera in ths book. Rumor was probably the hardest to like, but I understood his anger. Rumor watched his mom die from “monsters” when he was young and then watched as gargoyles, hellhounds, and dragons destroyed his home and everyone on it. He was raised by his father to kill and not trust.
My absolute favorites in the book were Jude and Braeden. Jude was just sweet. He’s that kind of guy you can’t help but love. Braeden has that sarcastic personality that I like so much. But he was also loyal with a good heart.
There was plenty of diversity in this book. I don’t know that anyone was really straight and that was nice. The sign language was also a pleasant surprise that really added to the story. I really liked how Nyx could feel the vibrations from the moon.
The chimera and the history were the best parts of the book. Humans arrived from earth and took over their land. Obviously some similarities there to real life. There was a lot of action in 27 Hours. Plenty of blood and a little romance here and there. But I found that the focus was more on the friendship of the group. They were a family and each one would protect the others with their lives. I panicked a few times and even cried during one scene.
I’m glad there will be another book. I can’t wait to find out what happened. There were a lot of betrayals in this one and I want to know who we can really trust.
I gave this book 4 stars. Thank you to Entangled Teen and Netgalley for the chance to read this one early.
