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.
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.
