Twinkle by SJ Parkinson – Review & 2 Giveaways


Twinkle – Book Review

Have you ever tried to do something really spectacular, only to have things go terribly wrong?

Welcome to the world of multi-billionaire Sir Marcus Brandon – the richest man in the world.

To celebrate the launch of his latest venture, Global News Network, Brandon has planned a record-breaking international 4th of July celebration: the largest and most expensive pyrotechnic show ever staged – the first global firework display staged from space, where the entire world will see the same show in their time zone as the earth rotates.

Imagine the thrill of hosting the most incredible firework show the world has ever seen.

Imagine the excitement of creating a unifying historic event.

And then – imagine the horror of waking up the next day and discovering – for reasons you cannot fathom – that all around the world, people are going blind.


Welcome to the world of Twinkle – a world that only author SJ Parkinson could envision.

Twinkle is an action-packed sci-fi thriller with strong post-apocalyptic and political elements. If you are a fan of any of these genres – this is a book you will not want to miss!

Twinkle has a unique and well-conceived plot, but my husband and I both appreciated the fact that the characters take center stage throughout the story. As you’re drawn into the lives of the characters, you’ll find it hard to put down the 500+ page book – and you’ll be disappointed when the story ends.

It’s easy to envision Twinkle on the big screen as well.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
