On April 18, 2112 the sun exploded in a Class X solar storm the likes of
which humankind had never seen.
They had nineteen minutes.
Nineteen minutes until the geomagnetic wave washed over the Earth, frying
every electrical device created by humans, blacking out entire continents,
every satellite in their sky.
Nineteen minutes to say goodbye to the world they knew, forever, and to
prepare for a new Earth, a new Sun.
Generations after solar storms have destroyed nearly all human technology on
Earth and humans have reverted to a middle ages like existence, all
knowledge of the remaining technology is kept hidden by a privileged few
called the Reticents and books are burned as heresy. Alana, a disfigured
slave girl, and Recks, a traveling minstrel and sometimes-thief, join forces
to bring knowledge and books back to the human race. But when Alana is
chosen against her will to be the Vessel, the living repository for all
human knowledge, she must find the strength to be what the world needs.

I don't have a particular theme. I read many genres and am drawn in by the blurb and first page of the story. I read according to my mood each morning.

Interesting characters draw me into a book and even the book covers. I mostly read mysteries so the suspense draws me in.
