Atlas Alone (Planetfall 4) by Emma Newman (book review).

‘Atlas Alone’ is the fourth novel set in Emma Newman’s ‘Planetfall’ universe, all of which I have enjoyed and found to be engaging and emotionally charged, with wonderfully complex characters and an intriguing background. Each of the first three novels stands alone and could be read in any order, but this book follows on directly […]

After Atlas (A Planetfall Novel) by Emma Newman (book review).

The first novel by Emma Newman, ‘Planetfall’, was a masterpiece in characterisation. It could have been set anywhere and at any time and still made an impact. A bonus was the way the society had been set up as a very believable colony on an alien planet. The second novel is not exactly a sequel […]

After Atlas (Planetfall book 2) by Emma Newman (book review).

‘Planetfall’ was a fabulously engaging novel of deep characterisation and otherworldy intrigue that left me highly impressed. ‘After Atlas’ and ‘Before Mars’ are both dubbed as ‘Planetfall’ novels, as they are set in the same universe, but the stories are seemingly unconnected other than a shared background and references to the departure of Atlas, the […]

Before Mars (Planetfall 3) by Emma Newman (book review).

In the third of her ‘Planetfall’ books, Emma Newman returns to a loosely-related setting in ‘Before Mars’, a book with the same background but this time set on Mars several years after the departure of the colonists who feature in ‘Planetfall’. Just as in the first book, the setting and plot are intriguing but once […]

Planetfall (book 1) by Emma Newman (book review).

In a small colony settlement on a far planet, the appearance of a stranger from outside brings change to the community and unpleasant echoes of the past in Emma Newman’s haunting interstellar tale ‘Planetfall’. It’s a psychological drama with convincingly complex characters and a multi-layered plot that wraps interplanetary colonisation around faith, biology and betrayal. […]

Between Two Thorns (Split Worlds book 1) by Emma Newman (book review).

‘Between Two Thorns’ is the first in the new ‘Split Worlds’ series of books, this also includes a set of short stories (see more information at the bottom of this review). Currently, there appear to be two more novels in this series ‘Any Other Name’, and ‘All Is Fair’, but there’s no mention of it […]
