BLOG TOUR: Sunscorched by Jen Crane

I am really excited to be on the Blog Tour for Sunscorched by Jen Crane! I received a copy of Sunscorched for review, all thoughts and opinions are 100% honest and 100% my own. Thank you so much to Jen Crane and YA Bound Book Tours for letting me be a part of this fun tour and giving me a chance to read this great book.

Title: Sunscorched (Subterranean Series #1)
Author: Jen Crane

Synopsis: Death in daylight. Danger at dark. 

Life can’t possibly get more treacherous than a violent sun allergy in a solar-blighted world. At least that’s what seventeen-year-old Nori Chisholm thought before news of an impending sunscorch delivered her death sentence.

Desperate to survive the scorch, she’s forced to shelter underground and discovers a secret subterranean world where life is hard, and so are the people. Betrayed and left for dead by the man who pledged to help her, Nori is sold to a gritty pit fighting ring. There she makes a friend—and plenty of enemies.

Sam Cooper’s motives are at times impenetrable, but speeding through the underground world on the back of his motorcycle is a dark freedom Nori can’t live without. On the run from a group of cutthroat rogues, their escape takes an unexpected twist. A shocking discovery shatters everything they thought they knew. Can they use the knowledge to save what’s left of the world?
Winner of the Rosemary Award for excellence in young adult fiction, Sunscorched is a tale of survival and self-discovery at breakneck speed. Fans of Bella Forrest and Marie Lu, who crave dangerous heroes and dark secrets, will love the Sunscorched world.

My Thoughts: As soon as I saw the cover and read the synopsis, I knew I had to read this. This is my kind of book. I love gritty, post-apocalyptic tales where there is danger around every corner. Characters must struggle to survive in a world gone mad. I devour these kinds of stories, and this one was no exception. I liked it a lot. It grabbed me. Everything was so dangerous, messed up, thrilling, and I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next.
I really liked the use of a sun allergy in this book, how our main character Nori has to struggle with a disease that sucks when the world is normal, and sucks even more when the sun decides to attack everybody. I loved it.
I also liked Mr. Sam Cooper. He's cute, he's got a motorcycle, he's exciting!
The writing was great. I got very involved in the story because of the way it was written. I now need to know what happens next. Book 2, I'm coming for you!
Thanks again to Jen Crane and YA Bound Book Tours for letting me give it a read.

Though she grew up on a working cattle ranch, it's fantasy and sci-fi that shine Jen Crane's saddle. Her newest novel, Sunscorched, received the 2017 Rosemary Award for excellence in young adult fiction.

Book 2 in Jen's fantasy romance series, Descended of Dragons, was selected by iTunes/iBooks as "Our Pick" in fantasy/sci-fi.

Jen has a master’s degree and solid work histories in government and non-profit administration. But just in the nick of time she pronounced life *too real* for nonfiction. She now creates endearing characters and alternate realms filled with adventure, magic, and love. She lives in The South with her family and too many pets.
