As many of you know, I don’t read a ton of sci-fi or speculative fiction but when one catches my eye, I’m always excited to share with my readers even if it’s a genre that I don’t read a ton of.
I know sci-fi and speculative fiction both have a huge fan base so odds are some of my readers are fans. This one caught my eye because it sounds like it’s going to be a mix of sci fi, speculative fiction and thriller genres and I am eager to share all the details of this upcoming book!
This book has been getting a lot of notice on Goodreads as well as a number of rave reviews! The plot line is being praised as being innovative and full of twists and turns. The genre blending is enough to make me intrigued but all the praise has piqued my interest to say the least.
You’re riding in your self-driving car when suddenly the doors lock, the route changes and you have lost all control. Then, a mysterious voice tells you, “You are going to die.”
Just as self-driving cars become the trusted, safer norm, eight people find themselves in this terrifying situation, including a faded TV star, a pregnant young woman, an abused wife fleeing her husband, an illegal immigrant, a husband and wife, and a suicidal man.
From cameras hidden in their cars, their panic is broadcast to millions of people around the world. But the public will show their true colors when they are asked, “Which of these people should we save?…And who should we kill first?” (summary from Goodreads)
