This is a Surprise Book Review! Why? Because I surprisingly got an ARC and surprisingly read it in 2 days and surprisingly decided to post it here (the last one is surprising for you, not me, because I knew I’d post it here). SO! Enjoy!
(Have you voted on our poll in the sidebar yet? Just so you know, Heist Society is winning by, like a lot. We’re thinking of doing a discussion with lots of Ocean’s Eleven GIFs. Going to be a winner right?)
ASH WEDNESDAY releases on November 7th!
The boys in Pilot’s Coliseum have been killing each other for the better part of two years. Nuclear apocalypse destroyed everything, so now it’s the only way to get by. Pilot has the resources. He has the food, the water, the protection. He has the city, eating out of the palm of his hand. He has the way.And his boys–Pilot’s boys, Pilot’s handcrafted monsters–have the will.But no one has more of it than Red. He’s the greatest fighter in Pilot’s Coliseum, the golden boy, the best of the worst. It doesn’t matter what you put in front of him, he can kill with it. Doesn’t matter who. Doesn’t matter why. Red is Pilot’s perfect soldier. His perfect war machine.But it might not be enough.Because now Pilot is asking Red for more. He’s asking for everything–everything Red cares about, everything Red feels, everything human left in him. He’s asking him to give up everything but the knife, the bloody trophy of his last kill, so that Pilot can make him something more.Pilot wants to make him a hero.
Cait is bemoaning the odd lack of Ocean’s Eleven GIFs on the internet. She feels this is a great downfall of mankind. She’s currently reading Eat Brains Love by Jeff Hart (yes, zombies, don’t knock it until you try it). She plans to bake chocolate chip biscuits with her 3-year-old nephew. This will involve eating chocolate and not much baking.
