PRIDE AND PROMETHEUS is not only a clever, thought-provoking mash-up between two beloved stories -Frankenstein and Pride and Prejudice – it expertly captures the tone and themes of each book.  There is such an excellent balance between Gothic Horror and Regency Romance.

Review: Realm FM by Tyrolin Puxty

For a book with good writing and a distinct voice, REALM FM was a terrible disappointment. With a finale that rendered most of the characters useless, I was left wondering why a book that started out so fun soured so badly.

Review: Dead On Arrival, by Matt Ritchell

DEAD ON ARRIVAL sells itself as a zombie/medical thriller, but comes across as an almost-right-wing preachy cautionary tale about the dangers of technology. I thought the book was headed in FEED or THE AFFINITIES territory, but I was sorely disappointed in this near-future scifi novel.

Review: Nemo Rising by C. Courtney Joyner

Review: Nemo Rising by C. Courtney Joyner

I’ve got a lot of mixed feelings about NEMO RISING. I enjoyed the whole story, but when I sat down to write this review and really started thinking about it, I realized that I gave the book too much slack because of my love of 20,000 LEAGUES. If NEMO RISING wasn’t about Captain Nemo and the Nautilus, but about some other random submarine post Civil War I would not have liked it anywhere near as much.

Release Day Review: Sinless (Eye of the Beholder #1) by Sarah Tarkoff

Release Day Review: Sinless (Eye of the Beholder #1) by Sarah Tarkoff

January 9, 2018 Review 0

When I pick up a new dystopian novel, I’m always hopeful that the author will put a new spin on the genre. But at it’s core, SINLESS is nothing new. Tarkoff has found a different, problematic way to divide society, but the same beats exist. The hero is at first blind to the horrors of her world, then her eyes open, and she decides to revolt and become the savior everyone apparently needs.

Review: Star Hero: A Star Series Novella (Star #4.6)

Review: Star Hero: A Star Series Novella (Star #4.6)

November 24, 2017 Review 0

STAR HERO is a novella sequel to THE CHAMPION OF BARESH (re-released as STAR CHAMPION) which I adored, so I jumped at the opportunity to return to Baresh, the smelly, dirty mining town under a glass dome. Baresh is a world crawling with packs of wild dog-like creatures, mobs of feral children and overwhelming despair.
