Blog Tour & Reviews - Killshot & Ballistic, Icarus Series by Aria Michaels

Book: Ballistic (Icarus Series Book 2)
Author: Aria Michaels
Genre: Genre: Young Adult dystopian
 The sequel to Killshot 

It's been three days since Solar Storm Icarus silenced the world...three days since the GRS virus wiped out most of humanity and started changing the few who remained. Liv and the others made it through the initial wave, but they've lost a lot along the way and the journey to Salvation is far from over. A rogue military organization has taken hold of the area and they possess a weapon that could change everything. 
When Liv finds out her brother and the other refugees are being held captive at Camp Seco, she will risk everything to get him back. As the group embarks upon a dangerous rescue mission, a rival band of survivors threatens their safety and a new storm gathers overhead. The virus has spread and the infected are being drawn together. What's worse, the beast that lurks inside of Liv is growing stronger and more difficult to control. But Liv has a promise to keep--and her little brother is running out of time.
Will Liv be able to harness her strength to save her brother and the hundreds of other innocents beyond the walls of Camp Seco, or will she let the monster out and put them all at risk?


"We go were you go . Your  fight is our fight. You didn't put us in danger, it was just there, and you got us through it."

I jumped straight into Ballistic, Icarus Series #2 by Aria Michaels after i finished Killshot, i was so glad that i got to read this series one after the other because i think the wait would have killed me, i was that eager to carry on the journey. Both books grabbed hold of me and didn't let me go. The continuation of this amazing series was flawless. It's a fast paced, action packed, edge of your seat reading. There is also quite an emotional side to this read on how protective Liv is of everyone and the dangers they faced, drawing you deeper in as Liv, Zander and the gang are still surviving in the world after Icarus, with Liv desperate to find her younger brother Lucas (Beans).

"It is far easier to die having done what's right than to live with having not."

There are twists, turns and secrets throughout this read with glimpses into Lucas's life and what he has been going through while being held by the military. Jumping from one to the other only added to the story for me and i enjoyed getting an insight into Lucas's Character.
Again Aria has done an outstanding job with this book and i couldn't put it down. I'm hoping there is going to be a book 3 as i feel there is more to come in this Apocalyptic adventure.
I would Highly Recommend this series and this Author.

"You only lose control when you choose to give it up. Regret, fear, pain? They are nothing more than vicious parasites, do you hear me? Parasites cannot survive without a host. As long as you stay strong and you continue to fight, those things will never have power over you."

Aria Michaels is a new author to me and for this to be a debut novel all i can say is Wow what amazing writing i was hooked from the first chapter. I was intrigued by the synopsis but what i got was so much more than i was expecting. I'm so glad i took a chance with this YA Sci-Fi Dystopia novel. Killshot is a fast paced action packed enthralling page turner with heartbreak, romance and friendships built in an intense situation.
The Characters will pull you in and hold your attention throughout. There are twists and turn and some you never see coming. Am i going to spoil this read by going into lots of detail... Hell no i'm not this is a must read for any age and i would highly recommend this book and author even if your not a fan of Sci-Fi / Dystopia i'd still recommend give it a go i think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Aria Michaels you have gained a new fan and i'm jumping straight into Ballistic i can't wait to find out what happens to Liv , Zander and the rest of the gang following this new world after Icarus.
