Ghost Planet

Last Kiss Goodnight

Generally, I don’t like SciFi books, but since I am a huge Showalter fan, I thought I would give this one a try. Though it had just about everything I hate – circus story, aliens, alternate earth reality – I still devoured this book because Showalter is a master story teller!        ...

Liar's Game

I've always been something of a sci-fi junkie. Space stories are my favorites, although they have been in relatively short supply lately. When I saw this one available on Amazon, I was delighted. The plot brought to mind the series Firefly and in particular the episode Trash, which involved a con w ...

In reading retellings of beloved classics, you kind of have to go in knowing how much you can take. For me and Jane Eyre, it’s simple: I don’t like the book. Parts of the plot draw me back every time - governess, tortured hero, etc. - but it’s just not my favourite story in the world. This ...

Reading The Last Warrior by Susan Grant was like revisiting my first introduction to fantasy and sci-fi books. While this book brought back feelings of nostalgia, it also lacked the more complex world building that I see in many of today’s science fiction and fantasy novels, resulting in an avera ...

Blue Galaxy

By
Fast-paced Blue Galaxy had me glued to the pages, and I finished this novella in record time. That is the good news. The bad news is that inconsistent characterization of the heroine was one of the reasons I was so fascinated with the story. I kept wondering who the heroine would metamorphose into ...

Collision Course

By
Two hundred pages. I have to say, I find that a rather odd length for fiction. It’s more than a novella, less than a novel, and in this case becomes rather like a ten-year-old trying to figure out what they want to be when they grow up and changing their mind every day. Despite many positive at ...

Jaq's Harp

By
I like science fiction romances; I enjoy the settings, the possibilities and risks that come with world-changing inventions, the societies that evolve. As a result, I am always happy to come across a book or story in this genre written by a new-to-me author. I am also very fond of fairy-tale varatio ...

Rebels and Lovers

In my eyes, nobody does a better job at writing a fine science fiction romance than Linnea Sinclair. Her heroes and heroines are marvellous, strong characters, the tech talk is fun without being overwhelming, and the world-building with all its political implications captures me each and every time. ...

Abandon the Night

Many would have believed that rich playboy Quent Fielding never wanted for much - after all, what could a man who could do whatever he wanted and date whoever he wished crave in life? But Quent, an abused child, had always wanted for love. The real, no strings attached kind. And no ...
