REVIEW TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson by MH Snowy

 

GENRE:  

Science fiction

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB: 

Hidden inside the most unlikely person can be the most extraordinary hero …

Jeremy Sunson is surrounded by crazy. Mrs Abercrombie, upstairs, is widowed because her husband glued feathers to his arms, jumped off the building and tried to fly. His neighbour, Strykland, has gone mad since his wife died in a freak car accident—his only thread to reality the doomsday machine he’s building and his daughter … and, of course, spacemen invade Jeremy’s living room.

Every night, in glorious Technicolour, there’s a battle royal between two high-tech assassins who continually blast Jeremy’s apartment to shreds. Each man has one mission: Red wants to kill Jeremy, Bronze wants to save him!

Though his therapist insists he’s just having bad dreams—Jeremy knows better. It’s time to fight. He’s sick and tired of being sick, scared and tired! Armed with rare confidence and a baseball bat, this night, Jeremy fights like the crazy man he isn’t!

But how can he ever imagine when he’s won the battle, the war is only just beginning … over and over and over again?

The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson—ride a wave of laughter, fun, and sci-fi fantasy all the way to Armageddon!

Jeremy practiced for the rest of the day. He swung the baseball bat with vigour, ducked out of the way and weaved behind the furniture. Even pulled out an unused pair of sneakers after he stubbed his toe on the couch and hopped around howling in pain. Jeremy discovered that kicks were much more effective using the heel instead of the toe, and especially so when you didn't wear slippers. He certainly taught that couch a lesson!
                                                   
After his foot became stuck in the couch with a well-placed heel strike, he decided he needed something a little less expensive and more durable to use as an enemy. Jeremy propped a mattress against the wall and used it for target practice with the bat, only missing once or twice. After several hours non-stop practice when he'd swung, kicked, rolled and shouted like never before, Mrs Abercrombie knocked on the door and asked if everything was all right.

"Fine, thank you, Mrs Abercrombie." Jeremy wiped his cheeks, certain the unaccustomed moisture more than just tears, though his shin still ached from where the mattress repulsed a furious attack from the bat a moment ago. "I'm just trying to prepare. You know, get in shape."

Mrs Abercrombie didn't seem to know, but she nodded with that patient gleam in her eye when she talked of her late husband—who woke that last day after eighty-two years deciding he could fly. Jeremy didn't know why she gave him that look now: he had no intention of gluing feathers to his arms and finding, after he jumped off a six storey building, that he could not in fact fly. But Mrs Abercrombie nodded with a sad smile once more, asked him to keep the shouting to a minimum, and let him know she would be upstairs if he needed anyone to talk to.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!


I enjoyed this book and if you like Groundhog Day sci-fi style you will like this. It's well thought out with a double storyline that I won't spoil for you!! Such a good short story I'd like to see more from this author. 

It will take you through a gamut of emotions and you will gasp, laugh and want to know it's ending. 

I liked the character of Strykland , even if I wanted to shake him !! His reactions to events were normal for a while at least. 

Well worth reading

  1. Hi, thanks for hosting Jeremy’s story. I’m happy to answer any questions, though I’m afraid my time zone is quite out of sync. I’m just about to cook dinner. So please bear with me until I can check back in the morning (twelve hours from now).

    2. Hi Andra, a mid-week meal: chicken fillet partially crumbed with herbs and parmesan, served on a bed of fresh noodles with baked cherry tomatoes and kalamata olives.Not as glamorous as it sounds: frozen chicken never is. Tasty, however.

    3. Om nom nom! Sounds delish to me. I've only recently mastered basics like cooking rice. One can only dream of kalamata olives at this point!
