If you’re looking for a new way to scare yourself this Halloween, look no further than Megan Angelo’s Followers [Jan. 14, 2020, Graydon House]. Instead of ghosts and ghouls, Angelo serves up a cocktail of eerily on point speculative fiction, pulse-pounding technological thrills and just a touch of post-apocolyptic mayhem.
Told by our heroines, blindly ambitious Orla in 2015 and existentially discontented Marlow in 2051, Followers traces their paths through time toward each other, and toward a cataclysmic event that sends America into lasting upheaval. Booklist raves in their starred review:
⭐“Her writing is crisp and the familiarity of the characters is refreshing. Angelo also weaves in a perspective on contemporary political decisions and the effect they could have on us all in the not-so-distant future. This is an intricate and brave story of friendship, ambition, and love and the lengths people will go to protect it all.” –Booklist, starred review⭐
