Ashamet, Desert Born by Terry Jackman (book review).

‘Ashamet, Desert Born’ by Terry Jackman has a fascinating setting. Ashamet is a desert prince, only son and heir to his father, his royal highness, the Voice of Heaven. Being the only son is more significant in this world because a single birth is rare, with twins and triplets being more common. The story opens […]

Down by Ally Blue (book review)

  ‘Down’ by Ally Blue is a surprisingly creepy book! The setting is one of the least explored vistas on Earth, the ocean floor, seven thousand metres down. They might as well be in space. The BathyTech 3 mineral mining facility is pressurized and air-locked. Any trip outside requires specialised equipment, including an oxygenated mist […]

The Talon of the Hawk (The Twelve Kingdoms, #3) by Jeffe Kennedy (book review).

The Twelve Kindgoms is a richly textured world. There are kings and queens, sword and sorcery, knights and princesses, and most importantly, history. Picked out against this colorful tapestry, we have the tale of Uorsin, the High King, and his three daughters – Andromeda, Amelia and Ursula. ‘The Talon of the Hawk’, the third and […]

‘The Sword Of Destiny’ is the second collection of stories by Andrzej Sapkowski following the adventures of the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia. The release of this volume has been highly anticipated, not just because there will never be enough stories about Geralt, but because this is the first time this particular collection has been translated […]

The Circuit: Executor Rising by Rhett C. Bruno (book re-release).

Last year I reviewed the exciting near future space opera, The Circuit: Executor Rising by Rhett C. Bruno. The book had all the ingredients I look for in science fiction adventure – an apocalypse, a compelling mystery, mercenaries and assassins, and artificial intelligence. All it needed was a sequel. The re-release will hopefully fix this […]

Peripheral People (Ylendrian Empire) by Reesa Herberth and Michelle Moore (book review) 

The cover copy could have said nothing more than ‘psychic detectives in space’ and I’d have still picked up ‘Peripheral People‘ by Reesa Herberth and Michelle Moore. By the end of the first chapter, I applauded my decision. In the Ylendrian Empire, two teams of detectives work together to solve crime. The physical evidence is […]

Undertow (Undertow book 1) by Michael Buckley (book review).

‘Undertow’ by Michael Buckley tells an ugly story. Three years ago, the Alpha arrived on the beach of Coney Island, New York. They’re made up of mixed races of sea dwelling creatures, many of whom appear to be plucked for our very own myths and legends. Calling themselves the Sons and Daughters of Sirena, Triton, […]

The Void (The Tanner Sequence book 3) by Timothy S. Johnston (book review).

CCF Homicide Investigator Kyle Tanner has experienced his share of untenable situations. In the previous two novels of this series, ‘The Furnace’ and ‘The Freezer’, he got up close and personal with a massive sun and found himself sinking through the ice of one of Jupiter’s moons. In between these extremes exists the void, a […]
