My Review

5/5 Stars

What starts out as an ordinary day turns to something out of The Twilight Zone when bus driver Terrance realizes that every teacher and all but one student have disappeared from the school in town. With the aid of the remaining child, Terrance sets out on a journey for answers, and what he finds is chilling.

When I started reading Children of the Future, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was no let down. Full of mystery and intrigue, this is a real page turner, mostly because I haven’t read anything like it before. The conclusion of the story was imaginative, and I loved it.

The writing style is easy to follow and the characters are written in a believable way. This is one of those books that leave you thinking after you’ve turned the last page.

Recommended for fans of mystery and thriller.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
