I’m stopping by to let readers in on an exciting new series I’m currently reading! Uncontrollable, by S.R. Johannes, launches today as the second book in “The Nature of Grace” series that started with Untraceable. The series seems like an exciting addition to the Young Adult genre that’s full of mystery. I especially like its wilderness setting and that they’ve been described as page turning thrillers. I can’t wait to finish these books myself and I’ll be posting reviews and fun so you all can get excited too. In the meantime, check out the series and stop by the links below for her many contests and fun.
Book Summary: Uncontrollable
As 16-year-old Grace recovers from tragedy, her science class is chosen by Agent Sweeney at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to help with research on the new “Red Wolf Reintroduction Program”.
While she’s excited about helping with the conservation of the endangered wolves, Grace knows this means being outdoors in the worst winter recorded, in a place she no longer feels comfortable. It also means working closely with Wyn (her ex) and his annoying girlfriend (Skyler), a girl whose idea of getting close to nature is picking silk plants and growing fake plants.
After a couple of wolves show up dead, Grace almost quits. However, when a fellow project team member goes missing, Grace continues the assignment under a renewed suspicion that someone might be sabotaging the conservation program. She quietly begins to hunt for clues.
Little does she know, she is being hunted too.
Untraceable, the first book in the series, has won and been nominated for several awards including Winner of the 2012 IndieReader Discovery Award (YA), 2012 Georgia Author of the Year (YA Nominee), and a finalist in The Kindle Book Review’s “Best Indie Book of 2012 (YA)”.
Previously, Kirkus reviewed Untraceable as “A thrilling story is a dramatic entanglement of mystery, deception and teen romance. The action flows like a brisk mountain stream interspersed with rapids, holding suspense to last page.” What will your opinion be? As I prepare my reviews of this series, I hope to see your thoughts as well.
