Embrace the Night Eternal

Right now is a great time for those who love post-apocalyptic sci-fi. I am reading three different series with that theme and just finished watching the last episode of Dollhouse, which had a post-apocalyptic thread running through its season closers. I was surprised - and delighted - to find that ...

Skin Tight

It began with the X-Men and continues all the way through to Heroes. My obsession with humans with atypical abilities, that is. I don't mean psychics or people who speak to the dead (all though those can be intriguing) but mind readers, touch healers, time travelers - and they are especially int ...

Beyond the Shadows

This is book two in a series, but you definitely don't have to read book one to enjoy the story. Good thing since I hadn't known it was a series book going in ;-) Yara is a member of the Elite, the ruling class of Azra, a matriarchal society reigned over by the Grand Sister. As next ...

Star Raiders

In the dark days of science fiction television/movies before the 1977 release of Star Wars, there was camp. Shows like the old black and white Flash Gordons, Lost in Space, or the fodder that makes up the punch lines in Mystery Science Theater 3000. Yes , there was the brilliance of Star Trek bu ...

Born of Night

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Born of Night, first book in the League series, was originally published as Born of the Night in 1996, went out of print for a time, and has now been reissued in an extended version including scenes edited out of the original version. I haven’t read the old version; so this re ...

Beyond the Night

I used to read lots of science fiction, and I particularly liked a good post-apocalyptic story. Destroy civilization as we know it, and I would happily join the survivors as they attempted to make the world anew. My own personal favorite novel of this type is Earth Abides by George Stewart which ...

The Sword and the Pen

In The Sword and the Pen, a popular sword and sorcery writer comes face to face with his most popular character. Brandon Alexander Davis is the reclusive author of a very popular series of fantasy novels featuring the leather wearing, sword wielding heroine Serilda D’Lar and h ...

Hope’s Folly

Hope’s Folly is about a man, Admiral Phillip Guthrie, who is leading a nascent organized counter-force against the corrupt leader of an empire. Guthrie is working with less people, less ammunition, and less money - but not less skill. His talents and that of his crew aboard the airship of the titl ...

The Warlord's Daughter

I had such high hopes for The Warlord’s Daughter. Since Star Wars, I’ve had an affinity for futuristic, outer-space romances and, though this second installment in the Borderlands Series started well, it fizzled before the end. As the daughter of the Supreme Warlord of the ...

Finders Keepers

Finders Keepers by Linnea Sinclair is a book I find myself re-reading at regular intervals, three times in three years so far. The first time I read it I considered it a guilty pleasure, with its dramatic plotline and the so very obvious Cinderella theme. It was only on rereading it that I discovere ...
