Review: Land of the Free by Michael W. Huard

  Review: Land of the Free is a futuristic dystopian fantasy filled with kick-butt heroines, villains, intelligent robots, and the never-ending desire to throw off the shackles of tyranny. The setting is in the year 3016 where the world has been ravaged by a series of wars that has significantly decreased the human population, essentially destroying the middle class, dividing the humans between the rich and the oppressed. Under the […]

Review: Fluency by Jennifer Foehner Wells

I read this book, Fluency, as part of my book club reading for my local library book club. I was exciting to read this book because of the fact that it was a science fiction based book and had a lead heroine. I soon found that there were parts about the story that I really enjoyed and parts that I wished had been done differently. What I found most fascinating […]

Review: Artemis by Andy Weir

At first blush I was geeking out while reading Artemis. The attention paid to the details of the colony on the moon was fascinating. I could absolutely see the setting as it was meant to be. I loved the start of this book. Then when I read more about Jazz Bashara and her shenanigans I was definitely not that enthused about continuing to read Artemis at that point. I liked […]

Review: Prism by Nina Walker

Prism is a wonderfully engaging story that has magical realism mixed in with eastern influences. Set in a dystopian world where many societies have already collapsed, the New Colony Kingdom had thrived. This kingdom was rumored to have done so well due to the royal family’s guidance and the use of alchemy. Specifically, their use of color alchemy. Color alchemy was a rare talent that usually manifested itself when children […]

Review Short Story Collection: Deadman’s Tome Final Contact

Deadman’s Tome Final Contact is a collection of eight short stories that all fit nicely into the science fiction genre. Each story is independent of each other but share the common theme of finality. For a sampling of what to expect you can look forward to space exploration, aggressive aliens, asteroid mining, wormholes, children being used as vessels, alien octopods, and echoes of a past revisited. As you can see […]

Review: Perfect Gravity by Vivien Jackson

Perfect Gravity picks up where its prequel, Wanted and Wired, ended. These two stories slightly overlap each other, so I was already familiar with the characters Kellen Hockley and Angela Neko. Although I did not know their backstories and history together. So, I was very excited to read the story behind them and I just adored Kellen’s character. I didn’t think I was going to like Angela’s character, but I most […]

Review: The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

I was beyond excited to get The Empress as an advanced read. I loved, loved, LOVED the series starter, The Diabolic, and couldn’t wait to read its sequel. Not mention that both covers are just downright gorgeous, #coverlove! I will admit I was a bit nervous to read The Empress because in some cases the sequel to an amazing book is not nearly as good. I should not have even […]

Review: The Heart of the Alchemist by Penny Wells

For the last three years Katie had wallowed in her misery after her break-up with the man she thought she would spend forever with. Although she knew that she was in a downward spiral she just couldn’t seem to care enough to do anything about it. I think she had untreated depression, honestly. When her ex suddenly showed up at her place of business, it was the catalyst that she […]

Review: Interpretation by Dylan Callens

What a mind trip! Interpretation is one of those stories that just makes you think and maybe double check that what you think is real still feels the same. I just cannot imagine the scenario that is put forth in this story, it is oddly fascinating but at the same time horrific to consider. Carl Winston is an everyday person who starts to experience oddities that impact him physically. He […]

Review: Gatekeepers by Sam Ferguson

Gatekeepers is the type of read that when you pick it up you find yourself caught up in the excitement until the end. I love reads that have creatures from other planets or dimensions and this story certainly delivered. Joshua Mills has had a rough go of things lately. After he was acquitted of patricide, had lost his wife and child to divorce, and was finally released from prison, all Joshua […]

Review: Veiled Planet by Teagan Kearney

I absolutely love stories that are set in the future and on other worlds. In Veiled Planet, a space exploration vessel had been mapping the outer arm of the Eucleides galaxy and had come across a planet that met the threshold criteria for habitation. This planet, designated XL3198, had a species of hominids that lived in the northern continent of the planet. It was with this species, the Marut, that […]

Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

In the near future space exploration has hit an all-time high and a large conglomerate has done something that no one else has before. Known as NASA’s dark little shadow, Babel Communications has successfully found a habitable planet referred to as Eden. Not only is this planet habitable but it is also populated by an alien species referred to as the Adamites. What draws the attention of this company though […]

The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net is about the “what if’s” regarding the internet. What if the internet could be utilized for truly evil purposes and possession? What if there was a demonic select that had a location on Earth, specifically Portland, that they used for their ritualistic reasons? What if they were tired of the status quo and hatched a plan for worldwide domination? If you ever considered any of those questions, […]

The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

I always dig any book where the story is set on another planet or in outer space. In this book, I have all that plus the planets are terraformed and colonized by humans who would rather have the hardships than be ruled by tyranny. The rest of society, the elite, all live on space stations built with all their needs in mind. Everything they need is cultivate or simulated. Ohh, […]

Edge of the Future by Andria Stone

What drew my interest to Edge of the Future was that it was military science fiction, a debut, and a new author! I am always on the lookout for a good sci-fi read and this book looked just right 😊. Once I started reading it what really got my blood pumping was that it has cyborgs, medical nano-technology that is able to heal just about every sickness and injury, hi-tech […]

Blog Tour Review: When Planets Fall by Abby J. Reed

 ***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: I devoured When Planets Fall! This was such a good science fiction series starter. It had just the right elements of futuristic technology, alien lifeforms, space travel, and the underdog losing it all in order to gain everything. I just loved this story! There was even a little bite of romance but it is short lived. This […]
