The Dark by Jeremy Robinson (book review).

The Dark by Jeremy Robinson (book review).

There are a handful of authors I will read, regardless of what their new book is about. I see their name and go ahead and request or buy the book, confident I will enjoy it. In fact, I almost prefer going in blind, not knowing what the book is about. It’s a thrilling way to […]

How To Mars, by David Ebenbach (book review).

‘How To Mars’ is David Ebenbach’s first foray into Science Fiction. The basic premise is fun: six astronauts (‘Marsonauts’) are selected by popular vote for a one-way trip to Mars where they will perform ‘science’ in front of TV cameras for an audience of millions. ‘Destination Mars!’ is the ultimate reality show. But it turns […]

Unity by Elly Bangs (book review).

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 […]

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 […]
