Rx: “Year One”
Prescribed by: Nora Roberts
Prescribed for: Readers who love dystopic fiction and the start of a new series! Perfect for anyone who loves movies like “Contagion” and “World War Z.”
Side Effects: A desire to stay indoors where it is warm and cozy, and binge-read.
“Year One,” is the first in a new series from bestselling author, Nora Roberts. It represents a departure from her usual romantic-suspense format. This is a stark, fast-paced, character-rich novel that does not disappoint.
Directions: The entire world is rocked by a plague that takes the lives of more than half of the world’s population. Many of the survivors are shocked and bewildered as to why they made it, while their loved ones did not. Among the survivors are the “uncanny,” people with magical gifts–fairies, witches, and elves. However, among the uncanny there is a divide between those consumed by the dark, and those drawn to the light. A special child is born amid the chaos. She is…the One.
Special Instructions: Take with food and drink, and keep the lights on. Alcohol and carbohydrates highly recommended.
