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, […]

Blog Tour Review: Legacy Strain by Taylor Brooke with Giveaway

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Legacy Strain is the third book in the Isolation series and it is the finale to the series. Author Taylor Brooke did a great job of including enough information that I was able to understand what had happened in the previous stories without having to have read those books. I will say though to really appreciate the […]

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 […]

I Want Superpowers by Steven Bereznai

I Want Superpowers is a wonder of a story! It was so much more than I ever imagined when I sat down to read this novel. Set in a dystopian society where the inhabitants are truly divided via the “Have, Have-Nots” rule, except in this case it is regarding genetics. Once the society lived as a whole until their children started being born with special abilities, referred to as manifestations. […]

This story, Qorth, is set in a post-apocalyptic world. Cameron lives in Yuma. Which is one of the two spots on Earth that survived the flood that wiped out most of humanity. Imagine it, 95% of the world is covered by water and Cameron is stuck in a desert. Talk about rough times. Not only is weather and access to resources a factor, there are biker gangs and outlaws that […]

Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson

This book is everything the synopsis promised and more. It was perfect for me! I love science fiction and the idea of technologically enhanced super humans just hits all my yes buttons. This book is exactly what I would find on the Syfy channel—well maybe waaay late night Syfy channel. It has quite the sexy times throughout the story. So not really “prime time” material but entirely enjoyable to read. […]

The Last Day of Captain Lincoln by EXO Books

I enjoyed this book! I was able to get my sci-fy geek on but there was also a deeper thematic significance that revolves around death. This is set in space aboard a ship that is run by the most advanced sentient supercomputer to have ever existed in their galaxy (oh hells yeah!!). The society set up on the ship is close to a utopian society. They exist on a nutritionally […]

Unfathomable Chance by K.T. Munson

What a hilarious novel! This is a fun and intriguing story set in a diverse universe. I love reading comic science fiction and I don’t mean comics, 😉 comic science fiction is a sub-genre of soft science fiction, it is also known as comedy science fiction. This story has much humor as well as extraterrestrial creatures, space travel, interstellar politics, assassinations, and romance. There is a great backstory on Diana […]

Mind Waves by Amanda Uhl

“They walked in formation, each of the three men taking an outside stance with David on the inside. Guarding him was critical, so he could track the information they were after, while concealing their presence. Their job was to help him navigate the energy fields and fight off the mind’s natural defensive system, which operated similar to white blood cells attacking invading bacteria.” A team of mind hackers working together […]

Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen

I have been waiting for this book to come out since April and it is finally in my hot little hands. It was so much more than I had hoped for. It has the steampunk elements that I adore. It has vampires, shape-shifters, mediums and humans with exceptional qualities. Loved it! This book for me is amazing; it felt like it had a blending of Jane Eyre, The Hound of […]

Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews

I am not going to lie, I judge books by their cover. It is a weakness, 😏. If it had not been for the Wobble Challenge that I am taking part in over at Goodreads I am 100% positive I would have overlooked this gem of a book! It is a short story by the husband wife team that writes under the pen name of Ilona Andrews. I love, love, love […]

The Rakam by Karpov Kinrade

I will admit I was a little lost in the beginning of this short novella. There was no backstory; you are just there, on the ship with “Sev,” the main character of this story. He is a dark and mysterious passenger who bought his passage on a whale-ship because he knows it will bring him to the ship he is truly after. A recluse, “Sev” appears to make everyone including […]
