Synopsis: Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.
But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.
Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.
They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.
During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.
27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.
27 Hours is a gripping, action packed adventure! This story hits the ground running, and doesn’t stop until it reaches a cliff hanger! For fans of YA Sci-Fi, LGBTQIAPK representation, and fast paced books, this one is for you!
I really enjoyed this one! I felt like it had an action packed pace and an interesting plot. It had a uniqueness to it, mixing the human race in space with mythical creatures like hell-hounds, dragons, and gargoyles. The plot seemed to flow well with regards to world building and history telling. I didn’t ever feel like things were jumbled or jumpy. I also really enjoyed the unique, diverse characters and their development.
The characters were the best part of the story for me. I loved the racial, and sexually oriented, diversity of the group. I loved how they all came together for a common cause and I loved how the gargoyles (or chimera) mixed in and added to the plot conflict and story-line.
Rumor was a very strong character. He was brave, but vulnerable. He was determined to seek vengeance, but also intelligent enough to realize right from wrong.
Jude was one of my favorites. He had my sympathy throughout the book. I loved the ability he had and I loved that he was an ally too the chimera.
Nyx was definitely my favorite character. She was strong and fierce, but also soft and vulnerable inside. She had an amazing ability that stood out through the story and also had a life obstacle that she did well with living with.
Braeden and Dahlia were great characters as well. They were both unique and compassionate. They were each important to the story and developed well with interesting backgrounds and plot roles.
27 Hours is an amazing story of life, love, loss, family and friendship! It offers danger, romance, moral lessons, and entertainment! The characters are awesome and the plot is well developed and exciting! If you are looking for a diverse, YA, Sci-fi read, look no further!
