Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Darkest Hour by Rachel Churcher. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my stop on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think.
Bex Ellman and Ketty Smith are fighting on opposite sides in a British civil war. Bex and her friends are in hiding, but when Ketty threatens her family, Bex learns that her safety is more fragile than she thought.
The Battle Ground series is set in a dystopian near-future UK, after Brexit and Scottish independence.
Have you started this series? If your answer was no, pause here and go read start this series. It’s amazing and I’m obsessed. Rachel Churcher has a fan in me and I can’t wait to see what’s next!
I love that this novel picks up with where the other landed. The world building is incredible. I’m in such awe that I was actually feeling like I’m there.
The pacing is fantastic. I never felt bored and I felt like I was there. I love the page turning pace. I was entertained the whole way through. Is book 5 ready yet?!?!
I suggest checking this one out! You won’t regret it if you love dystopian done in a unique way. 5 stars all around!!
Rachel Churcher was born between the last manned moon landing, and the first orbital Space Shuttle mission. She remembers watching the launch of STS-1, and falling in love with space flight, at the age of five. She fell in love with science fiction shortly after that, and in her teens she discovered dystopian fiction. In an effort to find out what she wanted to do with her life, she collected degrees and other qualifications in Geography, Science Fiction Studies, Architectural Technology, Childminding, and Writing for Radio.
She has worked as an editor on national and in-house magazines; as an IT trainer; and as a freelance writer and artist. She has renovated several properties, and has plenty of horror stories to tell about dangerous electrics and nightmare plumbers. She enjoys reading, travelling, stargazing, and eating good food with good friends – but nothing makes her as happy as writing fiction.
Her first published short story appeared in an anthology in 2014, and the Battle Ground series is her first long-form work. Rachel lives in East Anglia, in a house with a large library and a conservatory full of house plants. She would love to live on Mars, but only if she’s allowed to bring her books.
