Sixx by Cara Bristol @CaraBristol

I’ve really enjoyed the stories of the Dakoians, but I have found I like the stories on Dakon a bit better than the ones set on Earth. I found it a bit doubly so with this story, and I think it was because of Sixx. He comes to Earth to find a mate with every […]

Audio: Salvaged by Madeleine Roux @Authoroux @AceRocBooks

I like science fiction and Salvaged seemed like it might have the first phase of an apocalyptic change.  What I didn’t consider in advance was the world-building and character aspects.  The world is one with space travel, and other advanced technologies such as bioengineering.  It is also a world with politics and greed with some […]

Echo by Jordan Leach  @JordanLeach1987

Echo is a spacetime adventure with an interesting premise and story structure.  When I opened my copy and it started at chapter 29, I thought maybe it got scrambled and I didn’t get a final version of the book.  But this is by design, it is to help the reader understand where you are chronologically […]

Audio: The Queen’s Advantage by Jessie Mihalik @Jessiemihalik #RachelDulude @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I really loved Mihalik’s Polaris Rising so I had no hesitation in starting this Rogue Queen series.  These shorter books began as a free online serial on the author’s website.   The feel is similar to Polaris Rising.  It is set in space with various factions, political and action battles between planets and various coalitions. Samara […]

In  Aftershocks, Marko Kloos explores this scenario as the consequences of being the losing faction in the war become clear and new little rebellions begin popping up in various areas.  This was a completely easy read.  Sometimes […]

Audio: The Queen’s Gambit by Jessie Mihalik @Jessiemihalik #RachelDulude @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

I really loved Mihalik’s Polaris Rising so I had no hesitation in requesting The Queen’s Gambit.  It is shorter but has the same feel I enjoyed in Polaris Rising.  The action is set in space and on planets involved in various disputes.  This novella was an online free serial on the author’s site. Samara leads […]
