L.K. Simonds sets up a wonderfully heartfelt drama with Stork Bite! The novel follows two timelines. In 1913, teenager David Walker kills a Klansman in self defense. In 1927, two women struggle to reach their dreams in a time when the world was aligned against them. Simonds really hits you in the heart with her writing and I felt fully invested in the characters! I also found it interesting to see how the two storylines were connected. This is a beautiful read, so definitely take a dive back through history with Stork Bite!

After his life completely and utterly falls apart, Frank Clayton has no choice but to sign up for a deadly reality TV series. It’s there that he decides to take the fight to the people who destroyed his life in the first place. I love a good revenge tale, and Salkovic does a great job of blending action with moral depth and the interesting character of Frank! This book is a great action thriller, but it also asks some deeper questions. It’s sort of a more gritty version of the Hunger Games in a way, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! If you love action, dystopian lit, or even gladiators, come battle through Kill Zone!
