Review + #Giveaway: The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson by MH Snowy @MHSnowy_Dreamer @GoddessFish



The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson
by MH Snowy
GENRE:  Science fiction


BLURB:

Hidden inside the most unlikely person can be the most extraordinary hero …

Jeremy Sunson is surrounded by crazy. Mrs Abercrombie, upstairs, is widowed because her husband glued feathers to his arms, jumped off the building and tried to fly. His neighbour, Strykland, has gone mad since his wife died in a freak car accident—his only thread to reality the doomsday machine he’s building and his daughter … and, of course, spacemen invade Jeremy’s living room.

Every night, in glorious Technicolour, there’s a battle royal between two high-tech assassins who continually blast Jeremy’s apartment to shreds. Each man has one mission: Red wants to kill Jeremy, Bronze wants to save him!

Though his therapist insists he’s just having bad dreams—Jeremy knows better. It’s time to fight. He’s sick and tired of being sick, scared and tired! Armed with rare confidence and a baseball bat, this night, Jeremy fights like the crazy man he isn’t!

But how can he ever imagine when he’s won the battle, the war is only just beginning … over and over and over again?


The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson—ride a wave of laughter, fun, and sci-fi fantasy all the way to Armageddon!


Excerpt:

"Dear me." Dr Smith snapped up his ever-ready notepad, pen poised to take dictation. "Another dream? That is terrible," he said with the grin of a Cheshire cat. "You must tell me all about it."

But Jeremy didn't have the energy to worry about Dr Smith's behaviour. In mournful tones he related the story, unable to understand the way Dr Smith's pen flew across the page, devouring every word that passed his lips. Jeremy shrugged—at least someone was getting a boost from his misery; though what that could be, he hadn't the foggiest.

"Incredible ... I mean, how terrible for you," Dr Smith said, pen not pausing for a moment. "And they didn't interact with you at all?"

"No," Jeremy replied. "Though I'm pretty sure Ultimo scrunched his mouth at me."

"He did what?"

Jeremy's head snapped up. Dr Smith's expression made Jeremy gulp. "Ah, he ... he scrunched his mouth at me. I think. Raised it a bit on one side."

Dr Smith jumped up and paced.

Jeremy followed the muttering figure with his gaze. "Does it ... does it mean anything?"

Dr Smith stopped in his tracks. "Mean anything?" he said with a cry. "Why, it means everything!" He paced anew and then stopped. "Contempt, Mr Sunson. It means contempt."

Fantastic, Jeremy reflected, now even my dreams think I'm a loser.

But Dr Smith continued. "It means you are not acting as Ultimo expects you to. He—your dream saviour, the alpha part of your personality if you will—showed that you are not assisting him with your behaviour. He is trying to save you and you are not helping yourself. Battle, Mr Sunson! Your dreams are instructing you to battle."


My Review:

Jeremy Sunson wakes up every night with two guys, Red and Bronze fighting in his living room and tearing the place apart. One wants to kill him and the other is out to save him. Jeremy thinks he is dreaming but eventually he gets fed up with all the noise and the fighting and decides to fight back.

Jeremy’s neighbor Strykland has lost his wife in a tragic accident and has left him to raise their little girl all on his own. But Strykland being lost in his own little world now is obsessed with building his doomsday device. This doomsday device may be just what brings the world to an end unless Jeremy can figure out what is going on and stop it before it is too late.

The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson has been quite the adventure and was comical to an extent which I did enjoy. I think The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson would make a great science fiction/comic TV show with Jeremy trying to save the world over and over; night after night. I can just see him with a sword, (or maybe a Draco or machine gun pistol) helmet and a cape with his sy-fi suite.


If you like science fiction and looking for a quickie then look no further The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson may be the book for you give it a try.

Hi, thanks for hosting Jeremy’s story. I’m happy to answer any questions, though I’m afraid my time zone is quite out of sync. I’m just about to cook dinner. So please bear with me until I can check back in the morning (twelve hours from now).
