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.

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

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: 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 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: Blackwing by Ed McDonald with Interview

Review: Blackwing by Ed McDonald with Interview

Minx’s Musings: Grimdark fiction is a story set in a ruthless world where only the negative qualities of a character come through. There is really no happiness or very little hope for these characters. Noir fiction is where the characters are very tough, cynical, and pessimistic. Blackwing is grimdark noir with a dash of anti-hero. The setting for Blackwing is in a world that is blighted and deplorable. The Misery […]

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: The Spirit Mage by Layton Green

What an exciting continuation of the Blackwood Saga! The Spirit Mage picks up right after the continuation of The Brothers Three where we first met the brothers Will, Caleb, and Valjean Blackwood. Will was bequeathed a very powerful sword from his father but he was given little warning to the fact that this was a sword of power and many would kill to have it in their possession. Having recently […]

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 […]
