Review: Lotus and Thorn by Sara Wilson Etienne

Review: Lotus and Thorn by Sara Wilson Etienne

June 16, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

LOTUS AND THORN is one of those rare stand-alone young adult books in a sea of trilogies and series, and it is so full of awesome and crazy that it left me almost speechless at the end. (Almost, because obviously I have to write this review.) LOTUS AND THORN has fascinating world-building, a wide variety of well-developed characters and did I mention the awesome and crazy?

Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

June 10, 2016 Review 1 ★★★★

While I was reading Just One Damned Thing After Another, I couldn’t stop thinking of another writer: Terry Pratchett. That has to be one of the highest praise I can give a book, and that was when I was only a few chapters in. It pressed all the right geeky buttons, while still managing to keep up the suspense and danger inherent in travelling back in time to observe critical moments in history.

Review: Company Town by Madeline Ashby

Review: Company Town by Madeline Ashby

May 17, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

I feel like COMPANY TOWN snuck up on me; at first I was reading a pretty good dystopian-type novel, and then BAM, it turned into a fabulous, terrifyingly too-close-for-comfort near scifi with interesting new concepts and amazingly real characters.

Audiobook Review: The Family Trade (The Merchant Princes #1) by Charles Stross

Audiobook Review: The Family Trade (The Merchant Princes #1) by Charles Stross

March 5, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

THE FAMILY TRADE isn’t Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance, and it’s hard for me to really classify it other than by using the broader term speculative fiction. But I enjoyed it so much I wanted to write a review about it. THE FAMILY TRADE follows a reporter, Miriam Beckstein, who quickly finds herself caught up in another dimension when she discovers that she has the very rare ability to “world walk.” Court intrigue, assassinations, and hidden romance fill THE FAMILY TRADE.

Review: Forget Tomorrow (Forget Tomorrow #1) by Pintip Dunn

Review: Forget Tomorrow (Forget Tomorrow #1) by Pintip Dunn

February 15, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

A promising concept that pays off, despite some pacing issues, FORGET TOMORROW blends science fiction with star crossed lovers. Oddly enough, though the world building was the more ambitious element, it was the run of the mill romance that slowed down the story.
