Joseph, wake up, wake up, wake up...
She says it over and over. It's her mantra, her prayer, her plea. But life doesn't stop while he's sleeping. With a newborn baby in her arms, Rosa's thrown into a new world, with new rules and a philosophy that sounds too good to be true. She's sure they didn't rescue her out of the goodness of their hearts. The Survivors must want something in return.
The Wall finds Rosa eagerly entering a new life, yet struggling to keep the demons and ghosts of the past from dragging her backwards. She's left so many people behind.
There's freedom in the Survivors' world, more than she'd ever dreamed of, but there's also secrets. The darkest of which pulls Rosa headfirst into a trauma, forcing her to reevaluate her past and pushing her to make a choice that threatens to destroy the tenuous, sewn-together family she's built on the outside.
To continue the journey, lookout for book three of the four book Woodlands Series, titled The Wounded to be released in February 2014!
I was so excited to get my hands on The Wall after reading The Woodlands. Lauren Taylor created a wonderful world based on what we currently know and I swear I could see it in my head. After the cliff hanger at the end of the first book I was dying to find out what happened to Joseph and if he was able to pull through or not.
I'm going to leave that information out, but I have to say that the second book was even better than the first, and the cliff hanger at the end was by far better than the first. I know, cliff hangers suck; but trust me when I say it was the perfect place to end this story! It leaves you wanting more, with just enough closure
Who am I kidding? I wish I would have waiting for the next book to come out before I read this one! lol
I am anticipating that The Wounded is going to be exceptional. I cannot wait to see what happens with Rosa, Joseph, and the rest of the gang. Including some people from the past who we thought weren't going to be in the future...
Purchase The Wall on Amazon!
About Lauren Nicolle Taylor
Daughter of a Malaysian nuclear physicist father and an Australian doctor mother, Lauren Nicolle Taylor was expected to follow the science career path. And she did, for a while, completing a Health Science degree with Honors in obstetrics and gynecology. But there was always a niggling need to create which led to many artistic adventures.
Lauren married her high school sweetheart at 24. They had their first child the following year. The next six years of her life were taken up with caring for her three children. She found out early on that being a parent could be as devastating as it is wonderful. Her first two children developed life-threatening conditions. At four weeks her son developed pyloric stenosis and two years later, at eight months of age, her daughter contracted meningococcal disease. Many surgeries and some very scary hospital stays later Lauren's third child was born and her parents cross their fingers and thank the gods that, so far, she hasn't needed any life-saving surgery! Her son (8) and two daughters (6) and (3) are now happy, mostly healthy and extremely boisterous.
When Lauren hit her thirties and her children's health problems began to settle, she started throwing herself into artistic endeavors, but was not entirely satisfied. The solution: Complete a massive renovation and sell their house so they could buy their dream block of land and build. After selling the house, buying the block and getting the plans ready, the couple discovered they had been misled and the block was undevelopable. This left the family of five homeless.
Taken in by Lauren's parents, with no home to renovate and faced with a stressful problem with no solution, Lauren found herself drawn to the computer. She sat down and poured all of her emotions and pent up creative energy into writing The Woodlands.
Family, a multicultural background and a dab of medical intrigue are all strong themes in her writing. Lauren took the advice of 'write what you know' and twisted it into a romantic, dystopian adventure!
