Virtual Book Tour: The Compendium by @chris_a_hart #review

New Adult / Sci-Fi Romance / Paranormal

Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing

Irina and her renegade variant friends are scrambling to pick up the trail of their former employer, Ivan, and his globally catastrophic scheme.

Their attention develops a laser focus on an engineered earthquake mere days ahead of them in San Francisco. While they fight to stop the earthquake, Irina pushes the love of her life Jonah as far away as she can, trying to keep his unstable genetic degradation in check.

Irina’s friends think they’ve seen the worst that Innoviro could bring forth by the time they reach a secret facility in the Mojave Desert. As they near the property, the group uncovers a horror none of them had ever imagined.


First of all, I think that the story itself was imaginative and the author did a great job of giving something new to the series in this installment. 

The characters are well developed and engaging. There are ups and downs for their relationship and you will most likely find yourself wondering what they are thinking some of the time. 

My only complaint would be that the story didn't have a big enough climax like the first one. 

I do, however think the genre was executed well. 

Located on BC’s beautiful West Coast, Christine writes speculative fiction for YA & NA readers.  She has an undergraduate degree in writing and literature, a corporate background in communications and design, and an Etsy alter-ego named Sleepless Storyteller.

  3. I saw the cover and was going to pass by, but the more I read the better it sounded. I wonder what the horror is.
