This is my favorite of Shaun Hutchinson's books, and I've t loved the others - especially his realistic novels that swerve into surrealism. WE ARE THE ANTS, and AT THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE are brilliant, and thoughtful, and full of dark humor. THE APOCALYPSE OF ELENA MENDOZA are all those things, except instead of dark humor, this book seems lighter. More hopeful. More comedy than dramedy, if that makes sense. The f/f romance is rom-com light and funny, and that's not easy to do when your title character is at the center of the end of the world, and hold the future of humanity in her hands. It's also amazing in that this is a comedy about the apocalypse, which in no way trivializes the end of the world.
I will insta-buy every book from this author forevermore.
