The Blurb:The winter is upon us. The Survivors are in chaos. The war is coming.
One year ago, Sadie Matthau was living among humans, existing as one of them. But now she wakes each morning in a house in the Survivors’ City, listening to the invocations and insults of her family members as they cope with their new future. A war. Rogue abandoners turned monsters. Sadie and the icy Winters living in their midst, bringing the outside world in.
The Survivors: Point of Origin is Sadie’s quest to save her family. But can she find what she is looking for when she can barely stomach the Winters’ wintry demeanor and finds herself distracted by Cole Hardwick’s warm heart? Will she be able to uncover her family’s history even as the elders’ grip tightens around her throat? In an action packed ride full of magic and misery, terror and triumph, Sadie Matthau seeks the Survivors’ beginning just in time to face her end.
Point of Origin is the second book in The Survivors Series by Amanda Havard. There is so much that is involved in this series that you really need to read Book 1: The Survivors before starting Point of Origin. Sadie has been living life as a human for so long, it's hard for her to adapt back to the ways of The Survivors. Plus, now she has the Winter's with her, so making sure everyone gets along isn't easy. I'm not sure where her relationship with Everett is going. They say they love each other, but some of the things they do and say don't reflect that love. Sadie keeps visiting Cole too which really doesn't help her relationship with Everett. She's struggling even more with both her humanity and lack of humanity, and as a result both of these guys are being strung along for the ride. There was a lot of traveling in Point of Origin. She stops in New York, Boston, and Salem too name a few. I have been to these places so, it was a lot of fun being able to accurately visualize these places she was visiting. Like the first book, Point of Origin is so darn interesting. There is a lot of action, and I'm really wondering who I can trust. This is a story that definitely keeps me on my toes. Point of Origin is completely unique!
I won Point of Origin by Amanda Havard through Bookies. The opinions are my own.
Amanda Havard thinks in stories. She writes books and songs, tells stories to people over coffee or in elaborate iPad apps, in short films or subtle photographs. Stories are her life. THE SURVIVORS: BODY & BLOOD is her third novel, and is an amalgamation of all of her storytelling love combined. Originally from Dallas, Texas, she now lives in Nashville, Tennessee, a place where creativity drips from the sap of the trees, radiates from the attitude of the population, and seeps from the concrete. The inventor of the Immersedition™ interactive book app, Havard is always looking for the next best story-- and the most innovative way to tell it. Check out my interview with Amanda Havard!
