Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The dystopian romance series for adults. Readers who enjoy the world of The Hunger Games will love Joss Ware's Envy Chronicles.

"Embrace the Night Eternal took me by surprise and left me hungering for more.
Joss Ware's vision of the future is dark, complex and sharply original. I'm eagerly anticipating the next installment in what promises to be a fascinating new series."
- Nalini Singh, New York Times best-selling author of Branded by Fire

Format: Mass Market Paperback
What a difference one book can make! After lukewarm feelings for Beyond the Night, I wasn't sure I wanted to read this book... especially since the lead character, Simon, didn't really spark much interest for me. But I'm really glad I did. Unlike the first installment in the Envy Chronicles, I felt real emotion for the characters --a connection I just didn't have the first time around.

The concept for the series: the world is 50 years past a near-apocalypse. Many of the survivors are living in what was once Las Vegas, NV, which is now called N-V or Envy. Creeping around at night are killer zombies called gangas... and pulling their strings are the nefarious Strangers, people who were once human, now made immortal by implanting special crystals in their bodies. It is likely they were behind the "Change" that sent the Earth into near ruin. Five men from 2010 now find themselves in this new world. They had gone exploring in an AZ cave and went into a kind of stasis for 50 years, awaking only 6 months before the events of the story. They had not aged, but instead came out stronger, each with a unique ability.

Simon was a crime lord's bodyguard in his old life. But he sees the Change as a chance to become a new man. He is attracted to Sage, a quiet computer whiz and member of the Resistance, trying to bring down the Strangers. But he thinks she is in a relationship with another man, so he refuses to pursue his feelings. Sage is something of an outcast in Envy, because she comes from a settlement that's like a breeding camp. She and Simon end up teaming up to infiltrate her old town to learn more about one of the leaders of the Strangers.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although the world is not what he remembers having undergone the change five decades ago when he and friends (Dr. Elliot, Quint, Wyatt, and Fence) were trapped in a cave near Sedona without aging, Simon Japp still feels guilty for what he did back then. Still he and his buddies struggle to adjust as they battle the evil Strangers and the deadly Ganga. Elliot having found Jade (see Beyond the Night) is doing the best in their new compound Envy once called Vegas.

Sage Corrigan was born after the "change," but like Simon has a nasty past that haunts her. To survive she and her cohorts at Envy need information on their enemy the Cult of Atlantis and the mysterious Remington Truth. What they know leads to Falling Creek, the last place Sage wants to return to; but she knows she is only one who can get inside along with her pretend husband Simon.

The setting in Awakening Heroes makes the tale as the futuristic world of Ware feels genuine with references back to the old world and the mysterious malevolent Strangers and the Ganga enhance that eerie feeling. Through the flawed lead couple, readers learn more about the post apocalyptic America. Simon and Sage are a wonderful pairing as their respective past psychologically intrudes on the mission and on a future together. Joss Ware is two for two with this terrific urban fantasy.

My Review:
Simon was the odd-man-out from the group of men that emerged from that cave in Sedona after 50 years. He was not part of the hiking group. No, he had gone in there to die. Simon was a bodyguard to a mafia crime boss, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and completely disgusted with where his life had led him. He was being chased by henchmen when he stumbled into the cave and had accepted that he was going to die...in fact, was ready for it. When he woke up 50 years later, he decided that this was his chance at a new beginning. No one from this group knows about his past and he is determined to make up for all the bad that he has done.

I didn't realize until I got to reflecting on this book for my review, but there is something really different about these books that I really like. While the books do change POV's between both the hero and heroine, you definitely get a LOT more into the psyche of the heroes. I love that!!!

Simon is infatuated/intrigued with Sage, but so is Theo, and Simon has a personal rule not to tread on another man's property, so as far as he is concerned, Sage is completely off-limits. That becomes much more difficult to maintain when he is suddenly posing as her husband in a commune that believes it is their responsibility to re-populate the world. Even if there were not the barrier of Theo in the relationship, Simon knows that he is not good enough for Sage. He has blood on his hands... a lot of it and, regardless of who he is today, nothing changes that fact.

I loved Simon's character. Regardless of his past, he is a good man who is trying to make up for his past sins. His sense of integrity and honor is so incredibly high. He has a very strong and rigid self-discipline which tells you just how hard his life has been up to now.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of the five men who come out of a cave in Sedona to find that the world has changed forever, Simon Japp knows that the past can't stay buried. He hates the memories he carries around and keeps himself away from relationships, thinking people will learn about him and not be able to forgive him.

He and his friends are in Envy, the former Las Vegas, a town that is slowly rebuilding after the near destruction of the world. The group has come out of the cave with special abilities, and Simon isn't sure how to handle his at first, but as time goes on he's thrilled to have it.

Sage Corrigan enjoys her life in Envy. She enjoys her work on computers and loves the people she works with. She's worked hard to stay away from Falling Creek, the polygamist community where she was raised. In Envy she can work, enjoy the books she loves to read, and keep herself from becoming involved in a relationship.

Life in the post-apocalyptic world is not always enviable. There are the Strangers to deal with, along with the gangas. And now, the group from Envy is after Remmington Truth, the man the gangas are after as well. When a clue to Truth's whereabouts leads to Falling Creek, Sage and Simon agree to go undercover as man and wife, to see what they can find out.

Can these two fight their growing attraction for each other while they hunt for Truth?

The Envy Chronicles continue with Embrace the Night Eternal, and readers will devour it and want more. Ms. Ware has created a world that is dark and engaging. The characters feel as if they are old friends, and watching them together is a treat.

Simon's flawed past makes him all the more engaging as a character. He wants to give in to his feelings for Sage, but thinks that he will bring her nothing but trouble.
