Throwback Thursday #42 - Nightfall

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while and I wanted to jump on board! There are plenty of books out there I desperately want...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?
Nightfall - Ellen Connor
Growing up with an unstable, often absent father who preached about the end of the world, Jenna never thought in her wildest nightmares that his predictions would come true. Or that he would have a plan in place to save her-one that includes the strong, stoic man who kidnaps and takes her to a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest.
The mysterious ex-Marine named Mason owes a life-debt to Jenna's father. Skilled and steadfast, he's ready for the prophesied Change, but Jenna proves tough to convince. Until the power grid collapses and mutant dogs attack-vicious things that reek of nature gone wrong. When five strangers appear, desperate to escape the bloodthirsty packs, Jenna defies her protector and rescues them. As technology fails and the old world falls away, Jenna changes too, forever altered by supernatural forces. To fight for their future, she and Mason must learn to trust their instinctive passion-a flame that will see them through the bitter winter, the endless nights, and the violence of a new Dark Age.
This book is co-written by one of my new favourite authors (New as in I've only discovered her in the last year and haven't read everything she's written yet!) - Ann Aguirre. Along with Carrie Lofty, Ann has written this post-apocalyptic series that I want to start reading as I like action films and can't help feeling this is an action blockbuster in book form! But alas, other books have come between me and the end of the world...
Has anyone read it? Am I correctly in my blockbuster assumption? :)
PS - Ann and Carrie's author name was named after two kick-ass Sci-fi heroines - Ellen Ripley from the Alien films and Sarah Connor from the Terminator films


  1. I love this trilogy!! The post-apocalyptic setting is so amazing! Go read it!

  2. Wasn't this one the one you were crazy for and now you still have not read it? ;)

  3. Oh I really want to read this one. I also want to run my hands up and down that guys chest. *sigh* ;)

  4. Yep Blodeuedd, I was so excited over this - it's even been sitting in my 'must read asap' pile for a while now! :-)
