    1 thought on “Wake (An End Times Novel)”

    1. A copy of Wake was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review, and because she intentionally added a thrum. How could I resist?I enjoyed Maia Sepp's other End Times writing, a novella called An Etiquette Guide to the End Times, which I remember making me laugh. This is the story of the time right before that novella, about how the rising water levels occur. Key characters include a California girl (who has lived all over) working for a Toronto marketing firm, an iceberg scientist (h [...]

    2. "It's the end of the world as we know it" (R.E.M.) This should be Camilla's theme song. The year is 2020 and Camilla Lou Brightly is having a little bit of bad luck. The ice in Greenland is melting and scientists like her father are predicting dire consequences. Meanwhile, Camilla is working for a PR firm that numbers among its most recent clients a firm that specializes in networking the smart appliances in homes so that you can do things like make coffee from your couch.After her home is netwo [...]

    3. A fantastically funny, yet horrifyingly realistic prequel to Maia Sepp's apocalyptic novella, An Etiquette Guide to the End Times! In Wake, Sepp gives us a tale that rings true; we are currently living in a climate of climate change, and life as we know it could cease at any given moment. But would any of us be able to cope as well as our heroine, Camilla Brightly? And is no one else terrified of Morty, the omniscient, talking fridge???

    4. Maia Sepp’s new novel Wake, takes place before her previous book, The Etiquette Guide To The End Times. I don’t usually like prequels (SORRY MAIA!) because they have to be so, so good to let readers overlook that the definition of prequel means they know how everything’s going to end up.But this prequel is based around Camilla, a minor character from the Etiquette Guide and someone I really, really wanted to know better. In The Etiquette Guide To The End Times, Olive says Camilla used to d [...]

    5. Why did it take me so long to read this? I really enjoyed An Etiquette Guide to the End of Times, it should have been a no brainer to jump right into this. Anyway, at least I got there eventually. This was a lot of fun and really, really timely. Climate change, the internet of things, keeping your privacy private (especially online). Added bonus, Camilla was a gas.

    6. Loved getting to know Camilla and more of The End's back story. Am so eager for the next book that I have started rereading An Etiquette Guide to the End of TimesI never reread books this soon after finishing the first read!

    7. Rating: 2 1/2 starsEntertaining! And a little bit scary.This novella manages to tap into two of my personal sometime-phobias in one story: personal data invasion, and the climate change tipping point. Plus a little taste of 'Authority' stepping a little close to abuse of power. I'm not sure why these last two aspects were in there, as they really were very incidental to the main plot. I'm guessing there's some yet to be revealed relevance to the ongoing story, given this one is apparently a preq [...]

    8. I was already a Maia Sepp fan from reading The Migraine Mafia. When I saw that An Etiquette Guide to the End Times was available, I put it on my TBR list, but never followed through. When Wake popped up as available on my NetGalley dashboard, I knew I had to get it and read it right away.I would classify Wake as a dystopian, but there are some soft sci-fi elements and a very soft whodunit. The eighteen months since she released The Migraine Mafia, Ms. Sepp has improved her writing. Plus, with Wa [...]

    9. While global warming, identity theft, and an almond heist would seem an unlikely trio of themes, Maia Sepp blends them together to form an intriguing mystery novel. Camilla Brightly is an American expat in Toronto trying to build a career as a young associate at a PR firm. Her life is upended when she becomes a person of interest in the hijacking of an almond truck and a mysterious blackmailer attempts to draw her into a scheme to destroy her employer. Under the watchful eyes of the police and h [...]

    10. Maia Sepp's books are always a fun read. Great character development and quirky main players make this book an entertaining way to spend several evenings. I find I need to pace myself so I don't read the whole book in one go so I can enjoy it longer.

    11. A good, engaging read that had continued story progression. Characters are well described and likable, with an intriguing plot.

    12. Another fun and interesting book by Maia Sepp. I enjoyed "Migraine Mafia" and found this one to be just as well-written.

    13. It is my first ecological apocalypse novel, but it is more a mixture of cyber security and PR junior position kind of issues. The narrative goes unsurprisingly but the writing is enjoyable.

    14. When Camilla sets out for a life of her own,she has no idea of the challenges ahead of her. THANK YOU FIRSTREADS FOR THIS FREE BOOK!!!
