Dark Ages: 2020 (Dark Ages #1)Dark Ages 2020 J.D. Dutra by J.D. Dutra

Synopsis: No civilization has ever stood the test of time. When societies collapse… How do the unprepared survive?

After ancient Rome fell to the barbarian hordes and its light went out, 500 years of economic and cultural deterioration followed in Europe – The Dark Ages. In the 14th century, the most brutal pandemic to ravage mankind finally pulled this part of the world out of the darkness. The Black Death decimated over 60% of the population, creating an immediate surplus of goods and land, which catapulted Europe into a new age of the rebirth: The Renaissance.

The Black Death pandemic of the 14th century was no act of nature. The outbreak was unleashed on purpose, by an ancient and occult cabal which still operates at the present time, behind the secret societies of the rich and powerful.

In the year 2020, moved by the desire to launch humanity into a new era of enlightenment and scientific advancements, this same obscure society plans to release a virus which can wipe out up to 90% of the world’s population. Political maneuvering and the biggest false flag event in generations sets their plan in motion, and immediately the President of The United States is caught in a web of horror weaved by this powerful global elite.

In the midst of it all, a clandestine CIA agent is torn between honor, duty and family. A struggling entrepreneur obeys the State and yet pays the ultimate price. An influential philanthropist has a dark secret that can alter the course of history, one which might lead a trio of scam artists to get more than they ever expected.

As modern society crumbles and the final unleashing of a New World Order takes place, these 5 lives will collide in a violent struggle for control, power and ultimate survival.

Hey guys! I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting much. My anxiety has been pretty bad the last few months. Last month it was horrible. I’m not sure, but I think I’m finally over the worst of it, but I can’t be 100% sure. I can be fine one minute and the next I’m freaking out because something triggered my anxiety. Needless to say I haven’t really been reading. I tried but most times I couldn’t sit still or I just wasn’t taking anything in. I did manage to read one book since my last update (April 18th). I want to start reading and blogging more. I’ve really missed it. However, I’m not going to make any promises. I don’t want to say I’m back when I don’t know what the next little while will be like. I will do my best. For a bit of good news, MY BIRTHDAY IS TOMORROW!

The Sleep Room by Frank Tallis

Synopsis: When promising young psychiatrist James Richardson is offered the job opportunity of a lifetime by the charismatic Dr. Hugh Maitland, he is thrilled. Setting off to take up his post at Wyldehope Hall in deepest Suffolk, Richardson doesn’t look back. One of his tasks is to manage Maitland’s most controversial project–a pioneering therapy in which extremely disturbed patients are kept asleep for months. If this radical and potentially dangerous procedure is successful, it could mean professional glory for both doctors.

As Richardson settles into his new life, he begins to sense something uncanny about the sleeping patients–six women, forsaken by society. Why is Maitland unwilling to discuss their past lives? Why is the trainee nurse so on edge when she spends nights alone with them? And what can it mean when all the sleepers start dreaming at the same time? In this atmospheric reinvention of the ghost story, Richardson finds himself questioning everything he knows about the human mind, as he attempts to uncover the shocking secrets of The Sleep Room . . .

Sorry I wasn’t really around last week. Once again I got sick and didn’t feel up to reading. I don’t know what is going on with me this year but I was sick for two weeks last month, and now I’m sick again. I am starting to feel better but I’m still getting headaches pretty much every single day. I’m not sure how much I will post again this week because I don’t think I have any reviews ready to go. I am hoping to read more and write some reviews this week.

Blindness (Blindness #1) José SaramagoBlindness (Blindness #1) by José Saramago

Synopsis: From Nobel Prize–winning author José Saramago, a magnificent, mesmerizing parable of loss

A city is hit by an epidemic of “white blindness” that spares no one. Authorities confine the blind to an empty mental hospital, but there the criminal element holds everyone captive, stealing food rations and assaulting women. There is one eyewitness to this nightmare who guides her charges—among them a boy with no mother, a girl with dark glasses, a dog of tears—through the barren streets, and their procession becomes as uncanny as the surroundings are harrowing. As Blindnessreclaims the age-old story of a plague, it evokes the vivid and trembling horrors of the twentieth century, leaving readers with a powerful vision of the human spirit that’s bound both by weakness and exhilarating strength.
