Oceans of Red Volume One
Oceans of Red Volume One by Willow Cross
Title: Rise Of The Demons: Oceans of Red Volume 1
Author: Willow Cross
Publisher: Self Published
By 2015 the streets of Los Angeles have been transformed from a thriving metropolis to a hostile world ravaged by demons bent on assimilating the human race. Standing between this total apocalypse of humanity and their chance for survival is 19 year old Remy Martin.
A warrior in her own right, trained to think on her feet and kill if the situation requires, she is flanked by her older brother and younger sister. Together, they devise a plan to take back the streets. Against the wishes of their father, who commands the resistance forces, they venture into unknown realms of the supernatural in a race against time with the fate of the entire world in their young hands.
Join them on their mission into darkness where death lies around every corner, it is virtually impossible to distinguish your enemies from your allies, and a single mistake could result in the annihilation of everyone you've ever known and loved.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of this book for my honest review.
Loved this one!!! This is a new twist on the apocolyptic/dystopia genre, demons have been released and are taking over the human race. First thought to be a disease, humanity was forced to face the truth of the cause of this red eyed madness. Remy is a strong female character that is take charge and a tough fighter. She still has hope that this menace can be beaten and she isn't giving up.
Remy, along with her siblings Greg and Shane are a great team. Its nice to see a sibling team instead of a romance. They are each strong in different ways and really rely on each other. Shane is the little sister that's really smart and Greg has alot of strength. Feeling that not enough is being done in this war, they take it upon themselves to come up with a strategy that will work.
This is a great read. Once you start you don't want to put it down. When I came to the end I couldn't believe it was over already. I want to know where this story is headed. This is an original read that is full of wonderful characters, evil demons, and a lot of action. Definitely for the YA crowd, there is no profanity, no romance, nothing that I would warn against (other than evil demons). This one is a perfect Halloween read. Can hardly wait for volume 2.
