The Contingency – Book Review

The Contingency War by G J Ogden
Published on: September 20, 2019

This is a science fiction novel I see in two very different lights. The Contingency that I started reading and the one I ended with were so very different from each other. It was a cohesive story line, but the reality of the story I was reacting too at the beginning was not the one I was reading in the end.

[ARC Review] – The Cruel Stars

by John Birmingham
Published on: August 20, 2019

To me, space opera’s are just so much fun. An adventure across an entire galaxy is just so entertaining because it allows you to imagine bigger than what reality is. But while I enjoyed this story, it did have a bumpy beginning for me.

[ARC Review] Star Child: Awakening – Book Review

The Zentoki Fables #1 by Petra Landon
Published on August 8, 2019

I was not ready for this book to be over.   I knew it was coming since I had been watching the percentage of book left on my tablet, but was still so sad when it did.  I love fun adventure stories and this one was so nicely done with great, extensive world building, characters that are interesting, likeable, and sympathetic, and a nice plot and story.

It always feels like a breath of fresh air when I read a book I enjoy and don’t have to talk myself into finishing.  The Necromancer’s Prison combines three of my favorite genre’s:  YA, science fiction, and fantasy.

[ARC Review] Aftershocks

The Palladium Wars #1 by Marko Kloos
Publication Date:  July 1, 2019
5-stars

Aftershocks

Aftershocks is a very solid first book in a new science fiction series that revolves around six planets striving for stability after a war has ended. The story is told through multiple points of view – each showing a different area of how order is maintained within the solar system and how it affects different individuals. However, it doesn’t take too long in the story before we see that the “order” they are striving to maintain is fragile and occurrences of guerilla type warfare begin occurring. Throughout the entire book, you can almost feel the drumbeats of war coming – but the question is from whom and how are they doing what they are doing? In fact, this story is a very large prelude to something major – you can feel it with every page you turn.
