5.0 out of 5 stars A DYSTOPIAN RIDE FOR SURE, 3 July 2013
This review is from: Bugocalypse (La Cucaracha V. 1) (Kindle Edition)
Love the author's style of writing. She manages to marry the ordinary mechanisms of LA life with Dystopian fun successfully and keeps you turning the pages.

Like her other works that I have read, this book is dark and captivating. But even if you don't like dark, you will want to read more about alien invasion, and be fascinated with DNA level changes, not to mention the human to bug mutations.

She creates a very vivid picture of LA and you have to believe that she is from there.

Some things that stood out in the book for me:

Lacy lives in LA and this is how she introduces herself: "I'm Lacey, Stellar Pest-Control of Los Angeles. I heard you have a bug problem."

I don't like bugs but I did learn a lot eg:

"Roaches are also seriously weird. They can live without food for a month. You can decapitate one and it can remain alive, headless, for a week or so."

An easy interesting read.

Heard H Raven Rose has a new book coming out soon. How many sleeps till it's released? A five star read from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Hated Bugs Before..., 20 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Bugocalypse (La Cucaracha V. 1) (Kindle Edition)
H. Raven Rose's "Bugocalypse" is exactly what the title promises: a story of the End of the World, this time brought to us by giant, man-sized cockroaches. Which are exactly as creepy and gross and upsetting as you think they are, if not worse.

It's also the story of Lacey, a wanna-be actress in what she refers to as La La Land, struggling to make ends meet and keep her sanity in a crazy world (and that's before the insect apocalypse). With the help of her best friend Marisol, and the good advice of her father guiding her, she's (barely) keeping her head above water. Then everything goes mad (madder, anyway), and civilization as Lacey knows it comes crashing down. And Mr. Cucaracha shows up. With many, many, many friends.

This is an immensely fun read; it's told from Lacey's first-person POV, and she's got a lively, sassy but also sympathetic voice, and her view of life on the fringes of Hollywood rings true (at least, before the apocalypse changes everything). The supporting characters are great as well, and the writing is very engaging, carrying us along.

This is just the first book in a new series, so Lacey has a lot more adventures to come, and I'm very much looking forward to them. I highly recommend this book - but I take no responsibility for any bug-filled nightmares you may have after you read it!
