E is the END with Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza, by Shaun David Hutchinson (book review)

book cover of Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza by Shaun David Hutchinson, published by Simon Pulse | recommended on BooksYALove.comHer virgin birth – science proves true.
Toys speaking messages from Beyond – also true.
People snatched by a sky-portal when she heals others – ditto.

Elena didn’t ask for healing powers, or for a drunken stepfather, or for inanimate objects to channel divine instructions to her since childhood.

But in author Hutchinson’s odd Florida (setting of his At the Edge of the Universe , my pick here) strange things happen regularly.

What is stealing away people? Why? Where do they go?

Maybe it’s a better place than Elena’s high school and now-constant demands that she heal people.

Fiction or science fiction? (or fantasy?)

  1. Not sure if it’s science fiction or fantasy? Yes please.This looks right up our alley! Thanks for sharing this for A-Z. Most of your posts are going to get a second look after the obligatory visit to some of the other bloggers.

    • More SF than fantasy (no dragons, just ‘something’ that speaks to Elena through objects), maybe ‘magical realism’ – glad that it’s your type of book, so go find it!
