Stars Beyond by SK Dunstall @SKDunstall ‏@AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub

This Stars Uncharted series should be read in order.  I really enjoy this author and the first book in the series, also Stars Uncharted was excellent and harrowing.  I have been reading several different science fiction / space opera type series where there are corporate groups running things and they are greedy and corrupt. That […]

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 […]

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 […]

If you have enjoyed Jack Campbell’s other series, Lost Fleet and Beyond the Frontier, and Lost Stars,  Genesis Fleet series will feel familiar. The writing style, space opera and military strategy are all here. It is a prequel series.  Ascendant is the second book, following Vanguard by three years, and now Triumphant. The series could be read […]

Audio:  Deathstalker Destiny by Simon R. Green @TheSimonRGreen ‏ @TantorAudio @AceRocBooks #LoveAudiobooks

You really need to read the  Deathstalker series  in order or you would be pretty much lost. Even reading in order, each group of chapters will just drop into a scene and if you don’t know what was going on in the previous book, then you have no hope of following the story, particularly with the […]
