I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. I love the sound of this book. I think I would need to wait to read it though, because of covid anxiety.

    1. Olga Nunez Miret says:

      I read the Renova series before COVID but I must admit I kept thinking about it when all this started, Priscilla. This book happens many years later and it only talks about ‘the fall’ in passing, but I understand your reluctance. Have a great week and keep safe.

  2. A very good review of Terry’s book, Olga. It always interests me that all dystopian books centre around a dismal future for humanity when most people live in poverty and our world and lifestyles have regressed from the current situation. It is fascinating to know that most people view our lifestyles as unsustainable. I guess coronavirus is going to fast track us towards discovering the truth on this matter over the next months and maybe years.

      Thanks, Robbie. In Terry’s book things take a very nasty turn and very few people survive to the original ill ness. You are right about dystopias. I read Bellamy’s Looking Backward years ago, but in general dystopias are much more entertaining than utopias. I guess it’s the same with disaster movies. It’s OK as long as you’re only an spectator. I’m reading an optimistic nonfiction book at the moment, to compensate. Keep safe and have a great week!

    Olga, thank you so much for this wonderful review. I’m so pleased you saw everything in it that I hoped a reader would – and that you loved Evie, though as I was writing it, my favourite character ended up as Hemsley.

    I really like how you’ve made it clear that, though related to the Project Renova series, it’s a stand-alone – it was important to me that readers know that, which is why I didn’t list it on Amazon as part of the series.

    Thank you. A lovely surprise this Tuesday Book Blog morning! xx

    1. Thanks, Terry. I know what you mean about Hemsley. Yes, he is the one that changes the most, and he is truly inspiring.
      I hope you write more about the adventures of Evie and Byron, but all your writing plans sound equally interesting, so…
      Take care and keep writing! I’ll keep trying to catch up with my reading! ♥

  4. Hi Olga. Your review has caused me to be much more intrigued by the story than before. I do enjoy great world building. Wishing Terry huge success. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Terry is an author well-worth following. Big hugs and take care!

  5. Olga, I skipped your review as I have this book on my Kindle still unread. Terry gets such great reviews for her books, I am sure it’s doing well.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I know what you mean, Pete. I have another one of hers (Wasteland, following on from Hope) waiting as well, and I’ve been avoiding the reviews. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Take care.

    Excellent review for Terry’s book Olga, and you make it so tantalizing. I enjoy Terry’s books and I’ve added this to my list. Hope you’re getting out a bit more Olga. but staying masked! <3

      Thanks, Debby. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the book. Yes, I’m getting out a bit more. I even manage to cover a story for the local radio yesterday, mask and all! Take care!

      1. dgkaye says:

        Oh that’s fantastic Olga. 🙂

        1. Yes. There hasn’t been much going on because we cover local news, but things are starting to move a bit. Keep safe and keep reading! 😉

          1. dgkaye says:

            Well, you stay safe out there Olga!!!! Happy weekend! 🙂 xx

    1. Thanks, Sally. I saw your review, although I was trying not to read the details. I’m looking forward to Wasteland very soon. Take care!

        1. You too! ♥

  7. I always love reading your reviews, Olga… This one sounds good to me my type of book.. Thank you

    1. Thanks, Carol. It’s a fabulous book, and I can recommend the author’s work in general. Keep safe, Carol and thanks for all your recipes and suggestions! 🙂

      1. Thank you, Olga..

  8. It sounds awesome, Olga – the ideal story for these virus times. Thank you for sharing it. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. Yes, the Renova Project series is fabulous (although I read it well before the health crisis), but this book can be read as a standalone, although I suspect anybody who reads it will want to know what happened in the series as well. Good luck with all your projects.
