Book Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Anguish Unfolds (Nature's Fury 1.5) by AE Faulkner @AuthAEFaulkner @SDSXXTours

Anguish Unfolds
Nature's Fury 1.5
by AE Faulkner
Genre: YA Dystopian

With the life she knew all but gone, Riley must decide if she’ll let the road ahead break her spirit or bolster her drive.
When her sister’s safety is threatened, Riley discovers just how far she will go to protect Quinn. No matter the toll – emotionally and physically. With little faith in returning to the only family she has left, Riley follows the path that she believes is her only choice. Relying on others to lead the way, she is forced to face some of her deepest fears.

NOTE: You must have read Darkness Falls in order to understand Anguish Unfolds. Although I recommend you read Anguish Unfolds before diving into book 2 in the series (Chaos Ensues, coming in 2020), it is not necessary.

Riley is kidnapped by a couple of guys from the past. Riley, Quinn and their friends took these guys bikes. They wanted them back and Riley too. Jim has always been in love with Riley. Riley, Jim and his brother come in contact with some other guys who want their bikes. Jim is not going to let them his bikes or Riley either. Jim attacks them putting Riley’s life in danger and saving it at the same time.

When the new guy comes into the RV and demands they turn over their motive of transportation Riley is stuck she doesn't know what to do. Explain to the new guys that she has been kidnapped hoping they will help her or stay quiet. The question is stay with the kidnapper you know of go with one you don't. That question is soon taken out of her hands.

Now her only hope is to stay on track stay alert and wait for her best opportunity to make her escape and then find her way back to her sister Quinn.

Anguish Unfolds is a great book that grabbed my attention from the first page. Is a fast paced read with plenty of action to keep the pages turning. I love the world that has been created for Anguish Unfolds. The world building is amazing and so are the characters. The story just flows along real smoothly. Riley is very tough and brave girl doing what it takes to survive and playing it smart with her kidnappers. I can’t wait to read more in the world of Nature’s Fury.

I highly recommend Anguish Unfolds to all dystopia fans. 

Darkness Falls
Nature's Fury #1

As nature tires of human destruction, two sisters must face a changing environment that stands between them and survival.

When Quinn and Riley set out on a family vacation with their parents, the trip ends before it begins. Mother Nature interferes with their plans, setting off a sequence of events that thrusts the teens into a hostile landscape.

Stranded, with limited supplies, struggling to figure out who they can trust along the way, they must determine how to survive nature's evolving fury.

“Aidan, man, we should probably get going soon,” Jeff says, pulling me away from the threatening spiral of memories. His interruption is a welcome distraction.
“You’re right,” Aidan says, his eyes locked with mine. “But before we go, Quinn, you need to know, you’re not safe here. Do you have somewhere else to go?”
“What are you talking about?” My head volleys back and forth between the guys. Jeff runs a hand through his short brown hair and exhales a sigh. He leans in conspiratorially and says in a hushed voice, “Look, we’ve been checking out the unoccupied homes around here. You know, just borrowing things to help us get by. But one of the trailers we went to, we thought it was empty…”

Aidan finishes for him. “Quinn, one of your neighbors is dead. We thought the trailer was vacant, so we went inside. We grabbed some canned food and other stuff from the kitchen and then we went to the bedroom to see if there were any blankets and pillows.”

AE Faulkner is a young adult dystopian author. Her debut novel, Darkness Falls, is the first book in the Nature's Fury series, which explores the Earth’s response to humans poisoning her streams, abusing her animals and destroying her beauty.

She has a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Millersville University and a master’s degree in advertising, public relations & journalism from Temple University.

Although she escaped in books as a child, college textbooks sucked the fun out of reading. Years later, The Hunger Games trilogy became the spark that rekindled her love of books. After devouring that series, she quickly became captivated by dystopian novels.

After several years of reading them, she decided to take a stab at writing one that combined her love for nature with her fear of human destruction
