Praise for ⚡Thorunn⚡

“A rollicking sci-fi adventure . . . with all the craziness going on in the world, it’s nice to be able to escape from everything and journey to another world.”
.
– Anna C. (Full Review/Bookstagram)

“This adventure-filled high-stakes fantasy is a rollercoaster ride of enjoyment.
_
“I couldn’t help but gasp every time a character ran into trouble, hurriedly turning the page to find out what happens next. As fun as this book is, it has a healthy amount of darkness and angst; when I began reading, I wasn’t expecting things to get so intense or blow up so much—sometimes literally—and it was a wonderfully thrilling surprise!
_
“I was one-hundred percent invested . . . you should go read this book.”

“THORUNN was a consistently compelling and fun read.
_
“Jones truly shines with her action scenes, which take up a majority of the second half of the story, and are peppered in throughout the first, and I felt myself completely glued to the page while truly wild antics were happening with our main characters.
_
“I was so enthralled by the story of THORUNN, a tale of trust, doing all in your power to look out for those you love, and trusting your sense of self above all else to do the right thing.”

“Imagine being whisked away from Earth, relocated to a foreign planet where you’re expected to start anew . . . you’ll be on the edge of your seat the whole time, holding your breath as Laine, Kenton, and Bo escape, attack, and save the day on countless occasion[s]!”
.
– E. S. Barrison, author of “The Mist Keeper’s Apprentice (The Life and Death Cycle Book 1).” (Full Review/Website)

“A fast-paced adventure with no end of twists and enemies, that I imagine sci-fi fans will really enjoy.
.
“I enjoyed the idea of humans being able to start again on another planet – can we do it better if we start from scratch somewhere else? Can humanity’s worst excesses of greed, selfishness and cruelty be left behind on Earth? A timely question . . .”
.
– Kim. (Full Review)

“Very interesting concept[s] with some great main characters . . . I found myself not able to put this book down.”

“Thorunn took everything good in Jones’s debut novel . . . and expanded on it. The world building and the character development were phenomenal . . . I would love to read another book set in this universe.
.
I would recommend [it] to fans of science fiction, people who like adventure stories, and anyone who wants a book that keeps holding out hope.”
.
– Nat. (Full Review/Blog)

“SO. FREAKING. SATISFYING.
.
I read this in jolts, eyes flitting across the pages like I used to when it was like we could swallow books in half a day. It was thrilling and emotional in a great balance. I cried several times and felt deeply for the main characters.
.
The setting? Phenomenal. I loved how it played into the story. The frix and the way the seasons revolve around it? So cool.”
.
– Jessica Shubert. (Full Review)
