Hey everyone! How you dooin’?! 😀
So this came in a week back and I thought I must must put it up. I love surprises! A lot! That instantaneous feeling of bewilderment and glee. That feeling of facing the unexpected – its heady! 😛
I have a Goodreads account and like any book addict I sign up for giveaways. I have been doing so for a long time but I’ve never really won anything. But one fine day, I come home from college and see that I’ve got mail. The security guard brings a box with my name and address (duh obviously!). And I almost return it, saying I haven’t ordered any book so there’s no way this is mine, right?!
But then again, who doesn’t love freebies? Especially when your name is taped on it 😀 So I start yanking at the wrapping, like a frenzied kid after the birthday party 😛 And guess what I got???
Its this book called X0 by Sherrie Cronin. I won the giveawaaay! How awesome is that!!! I went berserk on seeing this beautiful thing inside the box. Like literally, I was jumping around the house.
What if you are capable of far more than you realize? Lola, a Texan geophysicist who doesn’t believe in nonsense, finds that a near fatal accident reintroduces a disturbing phenomenon into her mind. Lola pretends it isn’t there until the changes taking place inside of her just won’t be ignored.
Across an ocean, Somadina is a young Nigerian who thinks that her telepathic abilities are perfectly normal. When her sister becomes a captive, the young Igbo woman draws upon her powers to find an ally like herself, a woman with a strong sense of justice and a desire to protect the helpless. As Somadina discovers that her sister has become a strategic pawn in a larger and more dangerous game, she vows to do anything to get the attention of this kindred, uncooperative lady.
x0 is an ancient organization with good reasons to stay hidden, but it knows that these two women have more important things in common than they realize, and that such will forge a powerful link. This forces x0 to reluctantly emerge from the shadows. Somebody needs to intervene. Both women are far stronger than they know, and to make matters worse, a fringe fanatic may be on the verge of altering a nation’s future.
The plot sounds amazing! And I will definitely review it once I’m able to get past my assignments 😛 So do look forward to that 🙂
A BIG BIG THANK YOU TO THE AUTHOR/PUBLISHER FOR SENDING THIS! You made my day 🙂
Everybody should receive surprises once in awhile. Live the “unplanned” moment. Experience the thrill and joy of being caught unaware. 🙂
