I absolutely love NetGalley and I’m so grateful it exists and publishers are willing to trust me with approving me to access digital review copies. I sometimes get to click happy and request too many books, and I just don’t have time to read them all no matter how much I’d love to.
I haven’t made such post before, but I think it would be great to go through all the books I received, appreciate them and again familiarise myself with what they are about. This will definitely help me decide what should I read next.
The Incendiaries by R.O. Kwon
Phoebe Lin and Will Kendall meet their first month at prestigious Edwards University. Phoebe is a glamorous girl who doesn’t tell anyone she blames herself for her mother’s recent death. Will is a misfit scholarship boy who transfers to Edwards from Bible college, waiting tables to get by. What he knows for sure is that he loves Phoebe.
Grieving and guilt-ridden, Phoebe is increasingly drawn into a religious group—a secretive extremist cult—founded by a charismatic former student, John Leal. He has an enigmatic past that involves North Korea and Phoebe’s Korean American family. Meanwhile, Will struggles to confront the fundamentalism he’s tried to escape, and the obsession consuming the one he loves. When the group bombs several buildings in the name of faith, killing five people, Phoebe disappears. Will devotes himself to finding her, tilting into obsession himself, seeking answers to what happened to Phoebe and if she could have been responsible for this violent act.
The Incendiaries is a fractured love story and a brilliant examination of the minds of extremist terrorists, and of what can happen to people who lose what they love most.
I included this book in my Exciting releases – July 2018, so I’m extremely excited to get ARC of this book! It’s definitely on top of my TBR list. I’m mostly drawn to the cult aspect of the story.
