ARC: Escaping Exodus by Nicky Drayden

Thank you to NetGalley and Harper Voyager for sending me a free advanced reader copy of this book for an honest review. Escaping Exodus debuts October 15th. The seemingly acid trip-inspired cover of Escaping Exodus does the words inside justice: this book is unabashedly weird. Just look at this cover, omg.

I feel a bit like Jenna Marbles right now. "We-put-out-new-videos-every-Wednesday-slash-Thursday-SUBSCRIBE!!!!" Sometimes life happens, and you run a little late. This week it was health stuff... But I'm here now and ready to rumble. 🙂 So this week I returned yet again to Tor.com to check out their original fiction.
