Welcome to the "Second Chances" daynight blog tour! Over the last few day/nights I was really excited to share with you:
April 22 - Launch!
- My Seryniti - Review
I honestly didn’t know who to trust.- Little Library Muse - Part I of III
Thankfully I got Brad Darcton, a member of the ruling Ten of the SCI to help me out... no one said that I couldn’t bring a guest to my guest post so I’m going for it. I warn you to take what he says with a grain of salt. The guy’s a walking SCI propaganda poster.23 - Tressa's Wishful Endings - Part II of III
The dystopia category is pretty broad these days. By definition a dystopian world must have:Extremely bad living conditions due to deprivation, oppression, or terrorBy that definition my kids probably think our home qualifies.- Buckeye Girl Reads - Excerpt:
- Marked by Books - Review
I don't necessarily think that the SCI is evil, even though I may believe that some of the things they do are. They have a reason for doing what they do, and I'm so thankful to Megan for daring to explain those "whys."- Red Headed Bookworm - Part III of III
Brad: We want only the best for humanity. All you have to do is turn on the news on Earth to know that humanity’s been in a downward spiral. Someone’s got to step up and nip these issues in the bud. And I don’t know any organization better prepared to do just than than The Second Chance Institute.
24 - Coffee Books and Me - Guest Post
The idea for Thera came to me as I was hiking the canyons of San Diego...Stressed Rach - THERA FACT SHEET
Snuggling on the Sofa - Review
I have to say how refreshing I found this book when I began to read it.Christy's Cozy Corner - Excerpt
All Fantasy Words - Review
daynight is a gripping, fast-paced novel that combines the intricacies of science and technology with a sense of magic and surrealism.
26 - My Passion for Books - Review
I was very impressed with this book. I read it in a couple of days, even though I had a lot of work to do for school and other things. I just couldn’t put it down.- Paranormal opinion - Blake
- The Cozy Reading Corner - Kira
I needed all three characters to fully tell the story... Each perspective adds important pieces to the puzzle and as the characters collide there’s a few fireworks.- Getting Your Read On - Review x2
We get a glimpse of the characters from daynight in this novella and it definitely perked my interest in the next book to see how everything fits back together and intertwines.- All Fantasy Worlds - CSC Review
clean slate complex was a fast read and it went very well after reading daynight. You know that feeling when you finish reading a good novel and you know you’re going to miss the characters and the world the author created so much until the next book comes out? Well, this novella is perfect for those who need their daynight fix.
All in all, this book was a nice read that'll leave you wondering what's going to happen next.- Pause Time - Part I of III:
There’s nothing like starting the morning with a little controversy, so let’s get a couple important things out of the way:- A Backwards Story - Part II of III:
- So what is Cleaving?
Many readers have mistaken all the Cleaving discussion for pushing sex. On the contrary, it is all about who you end up with for life.- Beck Valley Books - Part III of III
Extremes are extreme by nature and intended to shed very bright light on societal parallels and make the reader think, feel uncomfortable even.29 - I Am a Reader, Not a Writer - Teaser
What I expected did not happen, especially what I predicted with the Blake and Kira's relationship... I like it because it was a twist for me...- Mel's Shelves - Review
Wow!! I'm really not sure where to start with this one. This book is full of twists and turns and turns and more turns. There's LOTS of secrets, deceit, betrayal, friendship, love, lust, power hungry adults, creepy rules, etc. You name it, this has it (aside from swearing and detailed sex--a plus).
The story starts on page one, the writing is fantastic, the characters are well-drawn, and the narrative is so much... more than a YA dystopian novel.
Escapism: an inclination to retreat from unpleasant realities through diversion or fantasy.
Knowing that escaping won’t make the bad stuff go away, why do we do it? I think that the diversions and fantasies can give our brains enough of a “timeout” to be able to return back to our circumstances with renewed vigor and determination.
You never know who to trust. You honestly don't even know until the very end. Some of the characters, who will remain nameless, you still don't know their true intentions! I can't wait to read Thomason's next book, once it comes out. I'm just dying to know what happens to these characters, if who we think we can trust is really trustworthy... if the SCI has some other twisted objective.
If you can't tell just yet, this was a five star read. Many of my notes in my kindle are highlights that say "HOLY CRAP" or "OMG!" or "ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!" My poor kindle probably has bruises from me punching the screen with my finger to get to the next page as quickly as I could.- Lovin' Los Libros - Review - daynight & CSC:
There is a bit of a love triangle here, as both Adam and Joshua have expressed interest in Alexa. We get a pretty big plot twist and Alexa learns SCI is not at all what it claims to be, and Joshua’s allegiance is wishy washy at best.Alexa, Adam, and Joshua will all appear in Arbitrate, the second book in the Daynight series.
I can’t wait!Paulette's Papers Part I of II
You are thrust into a dystopian society. What do you do? Do you submit to the regime or fight to the death?Becky's Barmy Book Blog Part II of II
Good news! We’ll likely die before being forced to live in a dystopian society. Our only exposure will be through fiction. And thank goodness. Because realistically, none of us would have much of a chance of making it in a dystopia without meeting an early demise or becoming one of the brain-dead masses.Backing Books - Excerpt:

What a weird feeling. I started daynight over 3 years ago. I spent more than 6 months writing, and way more than 6 months doing edits and rewrites.- Mortality Bites - Part II of II
daynight explored the SCI’s iron grip on Thera and the Second Chancers. clean slate complex explores what the SCI is up to on Earth (nothing good).
- Deco My Heart - Review
There are many sinister things about Thera that are slowly revealed and lots of twists and turns which makes for an interesting read.6 - Jack's Junk Drawer - Review
The opening prologue was hilarious. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard so soon when reading a book- The Reading Diaries - Review
The book is filled with twists and turns that kept me guessing till the last page I had a hard time putting it down.
