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. […]

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. […]

Gilded Cage by Vic James

Brilliant, dark and intense! Creative world building filled with fantastical imagery and deplorable cruelty. Brings to the front issues of class inequality set in a world with no boundaries. Definitely agree with the consensus that if you are a fan of Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen series then you will enjoy this novel. The setting of this story is a modern day alternative Britain where there are even alternate world histories, […]

Kingdom of Ashes by Elena May

Utterly alluring and remarkable! This story was set in a dystopian future where humanity is at the brink of annihilation. When I started this book I was struck by how Ms. May created a terrifying reality for humans who survived a harrowing extermination attempt. I so enjoyed the attention to detail that explained the positions of both the side of the vampires and the humans in this conflict. I was […]

The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher

If you have made it through the synopsis and have not figured this out yet, this is nothing like the Dresden Files. If you are looking for humorous dialogue with plenty tongue-in-cheek snarkiness coupled with pop-culture references, you will not find it in this book. This is also not your traditional steampunk fantasy; there is no real grittiness and no “punk.” What this story is about is a futuristic dystopian […]
