Unity is a bold and impressive debut novel from author Elly Bangs. The premise and the plot are made out of big ideas spread over a landscape scarred with the detritus of innumerable lifetimes. War is coming to Bloom City, an underwater ‘aquapolis,’ and three people are looking to get out before it happens. Danae […]

Infinite2 by Jeremy Robinson (book review)

It’s been a few years since I read ‘Infinite’, the first book in the ‘Infinite’ series by Jeremy Robinson. The first few pages of ‘Infinite2’ took me right back there. William Chanokh seems to be right back there, too. Trapped in an infinite universe, living countless lives. Will isn’t sure what’s real and what’s not. […]

Exo-Hunter: Dark Horse Rising by Jeremy Robinson (book review)

If you’re lucky, you’ll read six books in a year that really strike home. The story is engaging, the pace perfect, the characters full of deliciously faulty holes – don’t ask me how that works, just roll with it. The experience of reading is as much fun as the book itself. You laugh, you may […]

Set in a possible future, ‘The Rise Of Oceania’ series tells an old story, a war for independence in a new and inventive setting. As the oceans rise, humanity takes refuge beneath the water, creating cities thirty metres under the surface. Life underwater is tough and consequently breeds tough men and women. Any threat to […]

The War Beneath by Timothy S. Johnston (book review).

Timothy S. Johnston knows how to write thrillers set in tight spaces, so the setting for his latest novel, ‘The War Beneath’, may seem a little expansive, until you consider just how tight a space the ocean can really be. Despite the fact water covers over seventy percent of our planet, it’s actually a rather […]

The Last Sun (The Tarot Sequence book #1) by K.D. Edwards (book review).

‘The Last Sun’ by K.D. Edwards is one of the most entertaining books I’ve read this year. It’s funny, exciting and heartwarming. I have an iffy relationship with Urban Fantasy, but decided to pick this one up based on the characters and the premise. Both delivered. Briefly, Rune Saint John is ‘the last Sun’, the […]

Blade And Bone (Book Of The Black Earth Part Three) by Jon Sprunk (book review).

I’ve probably said it before, but it’s worth repeating, Pyr is one of my favourite publishers of speculative fiction. What I love about their books is that they’re always a little different. Fantasy and Science Fiction can be so very same-same and I don’t mind that. There’s a certain comfort to be derived from sinking […]

The Wind In His Heart by Charles de Lint (book review)

So many of the books I enjoy most find their way into my hands by means other than me deciding to buy a copy. In fact, this has happened often enough that when I got a note from writer friend Douglas Smith asking if I’d like to read his friend Charles de Lint’s newest book, […]

From Ice To Ashes by Rhett C. Bruno (book review)

‘From Ice To Ashes’ by Rhett C. Bruno is a standalone novel set in the same world as ‘Titanborn’. The books are related and reading one will enhance the experience of reading the other. In ‘Titanborn’, we learned about the history of Bruno’s Earth and the meteorite that changed everything. In ‘From Ice To Ashes’, […]
