Rinny presents Mailbox Monday #8




Welcome to this weeks Mailbox Monday!

Hey everyone! Hope your having a great start to the week after a lovely weekend?

It's Rinny here today bringing you what  I got in my mailbox this past week. So lets see then:




First up


We were extremely lucky and won a £25 amazon voucher from the lovely and awesome author Lizzy Ford. So as we do with all things blog related we went half's. With my voucher i got two new books. (Boy did i have a rough time choosing what to get and still have a lil bit to spend. I am hopeless at making decisions even worse when it comes to two things books and food lol.

The first book i bought was partly down to my new found obsession with free online action packed MMO game Marvel Heroes 2015, if you play let me know. However a author quote on the front really sold it to me " It's The Avengers meets The Walking Dead with a large order of epic served on the side." (Ernest Cline, best selling author of Ready Player One). Say what yup yup yup hell yes I just could not pass the chance up lol.

Ex-Heroes (Ex-Heroes #1) by Peter Clines




Blurb

The first in a spectacularly genre-mashing adventure series that pits a small group of courageous, flawed, terrified superheroes against hordes of undead.

Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes, using their superhuman abilities to make Los Angeles a better place.

Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Now, a year later, the heroes struggle to overcome their differences and recover from their own scars as they protect the thousands of survivors huddled in their film-studio-turned-fortress, the Mount.

But the hungry ex-humans are not the only threat the survivors face. Across the city, another group has grown and gained power.

Next up

The next book i got was the second from my books with my Amazon voucher. I haven't got round to reading the Percy Jackson series but have heard it is amazing. This series is meant to be like that but Norse mythology which i adore. I cannot wait to read this book first in a series and it has beautiful illustrations in it. Think it is classed as middle grade. Love the cover! So beautiful in person.

Loki's Wolves (The Blackwell Pages #1)by K.L. Armstrong, M.A. Marr




Blurb


In Viking times, Norse myths predicted the end of the world, an event called Ragnarok, that only the gods can stop. When this apocalypse happens, the gods must battle the monsters--wolves the size of the sun, serpents that span the seabeds, all bent on destroying the world.

The gods died a long time ago.

Matt Thorsen knows every Norse myth, saga, and god as if it was family history--because it is family history. Most people in the modern-day town of Blackwell, South Dakota, in fact, are direct descendants of either Thor or Loki, including Matt's classmates Fen and Laurie Brekke.

However, knowing the legends and completely believing them are two different things. When the rune readers reveal that Ragnarok is coming and kids led by Matt will stand in for the gods in the final battle, he can hardly believe it. Matt, Laurie, and Fen's lives will never be the same as they race to put together an unstoppable team to prevent the end of the world
