I received this book for review from Dorchester Publishing.
Summary: With her bad ass rain boots, her faithful dog, and the ability to predict the monster tsunamis that have reduced the US to a series of islands, Kathryn O’Malley isn’t afraid of much. Cut off from all society, she takes to the airwaves as Tsunami Blue, hoping to save something of humanity as the world around her crumbles. But Blue should be afraid—because her message reaches the wrong ears.
Now she’s the target of ruthless pirates known as Runners who want to use her special talents for their own profiteering—as soon as they can find her. Blue’s only shot at survival lies with the naked stranger who washes up on her rocky beach. A man who might just be working for Runners himself. Torn between suspicion and attraction, the two will have to navigate a surging tide of danger and deceit if they hope to stay alive.
Thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Tsunami Blue is a dangerous new world to fall into. A story filled with danger and the fight for survival. A sexy adventure, not to be missed. I thought Blue was an amazing character, strong and independent but still a bit vulnerable too. She has a great sense of humor and has a habit of having conversations with her dog, which is quite endearing. Blue lives a life of everyday danger, whether it's from the runners or the threat of another Tsunami.
In one scene, Blue finds a stranger has washed on shore. I love her desperation in that moment- her hope for some kind of companionship. Even though she has been alone a long time and her life ripped to pieces - her humanity still shines brightly. Gayle Ann Williams is a debut author. Her characters and world are a wonderful addition to the paranormal genre.
Score: 5 Stars
