2. Ex-Patriots (Our favorite book in the series)
Three other books by Peter Clines that we highly recommend are:
The Junkie Quatrain
Four connected short stories set in a world nearly destroyed by The Baugh Contagion. Those infected by the disease (Junkies) are adrenaline fueled cannibals influenced by instinct and hunger.
When Nate moves into an apartment with amazingly low rent he begins to notice things that are very “off” throughout the building. Curious enough to investigate, but not frightened enough to move, Nate beings exploring only to find that some questions are best left unanswered.
The Door is a newly invented device that can fold dimensions and make teleportation a reality. While the scientists responsible for its creation are sure it is safe on man is certain that this miraculous invention is not what it seems.
There are other books by Peter Clines that have received wonderful reviews and are on our “need to read” list. So far he is one author who has never let us down and does everything from steampunk to lovecraftian amazingly well. Keeping our list of recommendations short was nearly impossible, but these are all the books that fans of horror, science fiction, fantasy, post-apocalyptic, or dystopian should read.
