#Blogtour Riley’s War: Phase 1 by Kiersten Jackson @YABoundToursPR

Today I am very excited to be included on the blog tour for Kiersten Jackson’s book Riley’s War: Phase 1

The book was self-published on the 4th December 2017.

About the Book


Humanity​ ​has​ ​split​ ​into​ ​two​ ​halves:​ ​First​ ​World,​ ​the​ ​floating​ ​plate​ ​above​ ​that​ ​covers​ ​⅓​ ​of​ ​the planet​ ​built​ ​with​ ​futuristic​ ​technology​ ​and​ ​home​ ​to​ ​56​ ​million​ ​First​ ​Class​ ​citizens,​ ​and​ ​Second World,​ ​the​ ​Original​ ​Earth​ ​below​ ​running​ ​to​ ​ruin​ ​from​ ​war,​ ​famine,​ ​and​ ​poverty.

Recruited​ ​by​ ​Second​ ​World​ ​from​ ​jail,​ ​Jukebox​ ​is​ ​taken​ ​to​ ​their​ ​Base,​ ​discovering​ ​files​ ​with dragons,​ ​mythical​ ​shape​ ​shifting​ ​snakes​ ​from​ ​China—even​ ​the​ ​ghost​ ​from​ ​his​ ​past.​ ​And​ ​when the​ ​dragons​ ​actually​ ​show​ ​up,​ ​threatening​ ​to​ ​destroy​ ​humanity​ ​within​ ​three​ ​days,​ ​it​ ​doesn’t​ ​make it​ ​any​ ​better.​ ​Not​ ​even​ ​the​ ​androids​ ​and​ ​cyborgs​ ​that​ ​are​ ​sent​ ​to​ ​kill​ ​him​ ​on​ ​an​ ​everyday​ ​basis. Maybe​ ​it’s​ ​because​ ​they’re​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​his​ ​dad​ ​that​ ​holds​ ​all​ ​the​ ​original​ ​secrets​ ​and​ ​truths behind​ ​their​ ​world’s​ ​destruction,​ ​like​ ​him.

And​ ​when​ ​a​ ​comet​ ​is​ ​learned​ ​to​ ​hit​ ​both​ ​worlds​ ​soon,​ ​Jukebox​ ​is​ ​faced​ ​with​ ​the​ ​decision​ ​of fighting​ ​for​ ​his​ ​race​ ​or​ ​himself​ ​when​ ​the​ ​meteor​ ​is​ ​established​ ​to​ ​contain​ ​a​ ​power​ ​that​ ​could grant​ ​mankind​ ​renewed​ ​life,​ ​or​ ​instantaneous​ ​death—​ ​​his​​ ​power.​ ​Both​ ​worlds​ ​are​ ​at​ ​a​ ​clash​ ​to get​ ​to​ ​him​ ​and​ ​the​ ​comet​ ​once​ ​learning​ ​Jukebox​ ​can​ ​stop​ ​it—on​ ​the​ ​price​ ​of​ ​​dying,​​ ​deeming​ ​this battle​ ​as​ ​Second​ ​War—Riley’s​ ​War.​ ​And​ ​Jukebox​ ​doesn’t​ ​even​ ​want​ ​to​ ​​stop​​ ​it.

RILEY’S​ ​WAR:​ ​PHASE​ ​1​ ​is​ ​a​ ​powerful​ ​explosive​ ​sci-fi​ ​YA​ ​fantasy​ ​and​ ​action/adventure
complete​ ​at​ ​38,600​ ​words​ ​with​ ​undeniable​ ​series​ ​potential​ ​that​ ​would​ ​appeal​ ​to​ ​fans​ ​of​ ​diverse POC with​ LGBTQIA+ ​main​ ​characters​ ​and​ ​supporting​ ​cast.

My Review

I believe this is the debut novel of Kiersten’s but it definitely doesn’t read like one.

The book is really well written and flowed beautifully throughout with the plot and characters described well.

It took a bit of time to get into but once I understood it I thought it was great and couldn’t put it down.

The world that the book is based in has a lot of space and is very involved.

The characters are really well written, with a very good back story and the way they interact with each other made the book a very easy read.
