Quantum Night by Robert J. Sawyer

08/19/2017

Quantum Night was my first experience with this author’s work. I saw that it had mixed reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, but I did not let that stop me. The concept was appealing and I like to think that I went into this without bias.

I love all kinds of Science Fiction, but I am drawn to stories like this, because they can be so much more relatable than some others. With that said, I really thought I would enjoy this story, but as it turned out… {Continue reading}

The Dark Army by Joseph Delaney

08/15/2017

The Dark Amy is the second book in the Starblade Chronicles. Most of the story takes place in Polyznia, the principality under the rule of Prince Stanislaw. The story picks up right after book one, A New Darkness, leaves off. Tom Ward, the new County spook is dead, slain by a Shaiksa assassin.

I can’t say that I enjoyed this book, but I didn’t hate it either. I give it a solid three stars, and here is why. {Continue reading}

Faerie Moon by Matt Mark

08/26/2017

I believe Faerie Moon is the debut novel by author Matt Mark. I couldn’t find much about him.

Time’s Up by Annette Santiago

09/07/2017

Time’s Up was referred to me as a “controversial novella” and boy did it not disappointment. It is quite short, about 72 pages, and is written as a screenplay. I don’t usually read plays, but the story sounded like something I would be interested in. {Continue reading}

The Lyons Orphanage by Charlie King

09/09/2017

I adored this novel so much. Sam, the protagonist, was a very likeable character and you can’t help but want to see him excel at whatever he sets out to do.

When I first started reading the book, it felt like your normal middle grade/young adult novel, but as the novel progressed, I realized anyone could enjoy this book. It was referred to me as “a mystery novel with a difference; a fantasy idea of mind-reading grounded in reality.” {Continue reading}

Matriarchs: Eliza’s Revenge

10/31/2017

Let me just take a moment to applaud Susan McDonough-Wachtman and her superb book. I love Science Fiction. Especially Science Fiction with strong heroines written by intelligent women.

I was tempted to give this book five star, but to be honest there are a couple of issues I have so my honest opinion is four stars. {Continue reading}
