Navigating the Stars

Much as I’ve enjoyed Ms. Snyder’s work in the past, I don’t follow her release schedule very closely. But when I do find out about a new release, I’m ready to dive right in. It didn’t even take ten pages of Navigating the Stars to have me hooked and desperate to read more. The premise o ...

Nightchaser

Virtual Sabotage

Virtual Sabotage is a standalone blend of mystery and science fiction, set in a world not all that different from the one you and I currently inhabit. I was fascinated by its premise, since virtual reality has been an interest of mine for the past few years, but the story itself failed to meet my ex ...

Entropy

Entropy is book four in Jess Anastasi’s Atrophy series of Sci-Fi romances, and the first thing I’m going to say is that it’s not really a standalone. While each of the books has a self-contained plot and different romantic pairing, there are long-running storylines begun in book one (Atrophy) ...

Dangerous Promise

Megan Hart is best known for writing erotica and erotic romances so I already know from past experience to expect some high quality sex scenes in her writing.  However Dangerous Promise goes in a whole new direction than her previous books. The first in a futuristic sci-fi romance series entitled T ...

Because when I read that the hero is a cyborg, I imagined mechanical body parts used in sex. Resistance is futile. The fa ...

War Games

Having thoroughly enjoyed Jess Anastasi’s Atrophy (book one in her Atrophy series), I’m keen to read more of her work, so while I wait for the next Atrophy book to appear, I decided to pick up War Games, which is the fourth and final novel centring around the UEF battleship Valiant Knox. I haven ...

Contingency Plan

Contingency Plan is the second book in Robyn Bachar’s Galactic Cold War series. Set in an alternate future in which the Cold War never ended, the series follows the crew of the privateer spaceship Mombasa as they follow the trail of a super weapon developed by the Soviets that may paint the entire ...
