The Annihilation of Foreverland by Tony Bertauski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Annihilation of Foreverland by Tony Bertauski is now my favorite read of 2013. However, this book came out in 2011, so I feel like I stumbled on to a great party just as everybody was leaving.
The premise is that a group of old men with A LOT of money "acquire" young men who are considered--at least by them-- to be disposable. Nobody will miss them if they vanish. Since it is my rule not to give away any spoilers, I will simply say that there are twists and turns throughout this book that will keep you turning pages or tapping your e-reader depending on your preference.
This is a fantastic story that swirls around Danny Boy. Mr. Bertauski does a fantastic job of keeping you off balance. You want to believe that everything will turn out for the best, but you are always kept wondering.
I highly recommend this wonderful book and have just heard that there will be a sequel later in 2013.
