Jack Ryan, The Innocents, AHS: Apocalypse | August Roundup

August Roundup

Well, the heatwave seems to have slithered to a halt and with Meteorological Autumn officially beginning on Saturday, September 1st who can blame it. But I have heard that we’re going to get a reminder of those summer heats through the beginning of September. So, on the cooler evenings, you can hunker down with some hearty food and binge watch The Innocents or Jack Ryan. And with the evenings getting darker you won’t mind being in front of the TV when American Horror Story: Apocalypse begins next month. So, grab an early pumpkin spiced latte and take a few moments of ‘me time’ as you find out what you’ve missed and what’s on the way for your TV viewing pleasure in this month’s Roundup.

The Innocents

On Netflix since the 24th, I’ve watched about three episodes and am finding it a little strange. Desperate to escape the life she has for one less controlled June and her boyfriend plan an escape to London. For a better life. But soon they are simply on the run, two strange men trying to capture her and her father and brother on her trail, the stress of it all leads to some very unexpected changes when June starts to shift into the physical identity of other people.

Jack Ryan

Based on the books by Tom Clancy, Jack Ryan is an up and coming CIA analyst is forced into a dangerous field assignment where he soon uncovers a pattern of terrorist communications.

New Books Released

Download STARS by KT McQueen for free. The first in the Noctisbellum Inc. series which begins my Monster Universe. And sample the first few chapters of Moon which is now available from most eBook sellers.

The second book, Moon, is the novella that began as a CryptTV/Inkshares entry, wanted to be a script and is currently entered in the ScreenCraft Horror Competition. And both books are now available for download on Amazon too.

This was a damn good read. The set up seems like it will be a little cliched ghost story at first, but then it turns into something else entirely. The characters are well developed and I actually cared what happened to them. There’s some nice suspense and the tale builds the tension nicely and comes to a satisfying and horrifying conclusion. If you appreciate a quick read and a nice little twist, I highly recommend this introductory story to what is promising to be the start of an interesting new horror universe! I can’t recommend this enough. Buy it, enjoy it and bite your nails waiting for the next book in the series!
