The Wind In His Heart by Charles de Lint (book review)

So many of the books I enjoy most find their way into my hands by means other than me deciding to buy a copy. In fact, this has happened often enough that when I got a note from writer friend Douglas Smith asking if I’d like to read his friend Charles de Lint’s newest book, […]

From Ice To Ashes by Rhett C. Bruno (book review)

‘From Ice To Ashes’ by Rhett C. Bruno is a standalone novel set in the same world as ‘Titanborn’. The books are related and reading one will enhance the experience of reading the other. In ‘Titanborn’, we learned about the history of Bruno’s Earth and the meteorite that changed everything. In ‘From Ice To Ashes’, […]

Caine’s Mutiny (Caine Riordan book 4) by Charles E. Gannon (book review)

‘Caine’s Mutiny’ is the fourth in a series following the adventures of Caine Riordan, former journalist, reluctant hero and now commodore of the Terran fleet as humanity seeks to define its role in the galactic milieu. It’s been a long and complicated process and, based on events in this book, it’s far from over. There […]

Department Zero by Paul Crilley (book review)

Do you ever wonder if Lovecraft’s account of the Old Ones was true? I’m pretty sure you have. You’re a reader of speculative fiction. Now and again, your compass points toward the weird and you almost believe there’s other stuff out there: aliens, ghosts, alternate realities and Elder Gods. You’ve wondered. When something large and […]

Fire Country (The Country Saga book 1) by David Estes (book review)

I fell in love with the cover of ‘Fire Country’ by David Estes nearly four years ago. My first book was about to be published and I had been tasked with putting together ideas for my cover. ‘Fire Country’ turned up in a search within my sub-genre, post-apocalyptic stories with female protagonists, and I listed […]

The Circuit: Earthfall (The Circuit book 3) by Rhett C. Bruno (book review)

The third and final novel of ‘The Circuit Trilogy’ is ‘Earthfall’ is by Rhett C. Bruno. These books must be read in order and join together seamlessly to deliver a potent story. Because this review is for the final novel, it will contain vague spoilers for the previous books. ‘Earthfall’ opens with a reminder of […]

Judgment At Verdant Court (World Of Prime book 3) by M.C. Planck (book review)

I love the premise of M.C. Planck’s ‘World Of Prime’ series. One day, Christopher Sinclair wakes up in an alternate universe where technology is limited by a strict code of feudalism and the rules of magic, religion and time. I can’t elaborate further on that last point without spoiling the second book of the series. […]

Gods Of Nabban (book 3) by K.V. Johansen (book review).

The idea of a god and an assassin traveling together is what enticed me to request ‘Gods Of Nabban’ by K.V. Johansen from publisher, Pyr. The unlikely pairing alone promises a good read, but there’s more. These two have a long and torturous history. One is a fugitive slave and the other was formerly possessed […]

Looking For Group by Alexis Hall (book review)

Alexis Hall is one of my favourite authors. His ‘Prosperity’ series is some of the best and weirdest steampunk I’ve ever read. He’s also an avid gamer, so when I heard he had a nerdy gaming book coming out, I pre-ordered. The title of his new novel is ‘Looking For Group’, which is a phrase […]

Titanborn by Rhett C. Bruno (book review)

Previously, I have enjoyed the ‘Circuit’ series by Rhett C. Bruno. When I heard he had a new novel, ‘Titanborn’, and that it was ‘detectives in space’, I was pretty excited. Once again, Bruno gives us a post-apocalyptic future. On the surface, this one is far less bleak. Centuries before, a meteorite strike changed the […]
