Book Review: The Final Winter by Iain Rob Wright

In my determination to read all of author J.A. Konrath’s books, I stumbled upon another writer who collaborated with him on one of his novels, Holes in the Ground, the sequel to Konrath’s Origin. For that novel, author Iain Rob Wright integrated a couple of his characters from his book The Final Winter, which is about a group of people trapped […]

Book Review: Gemina (The Illuminae Files) by Marie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Gemina is the second book in The Illuminae Files, and is just as good (maybe better) than the first novel. In this story we are aboard the Heimdall with two new characters, Nik Malikov and Hanna Donnelly, as they are hijacked by mercenaries for BeiTech as part of the coverup from the first novel. Meanwhile, Katy and Ezra […]

Book Review: Light (A Gone Novel) by Michael Grant

Book Review: Light (A Gone Novel) by Michael Grant

“I suppose we’ll behave like a bunch of holier-than-thou hypocrites. Because the alternative is to look at ourselves in the mirror and know that we are capable of dark and terrible things.” Light, the final novel in Michael Grant’s Gone series neatly wraps up all loose ends, had loads of actions, and left me feeling satisfied. At the […]

Book Review: These Broken Stars (A Starboard Novel) by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

Book Review: These Broken Stars (A Starboard Novel) by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

“For a moment the image before us is frozen: our world, our lives, reduced to a handful broken stars half lost in uncharted space. Then it’s gone, the view swallowed by the hyperspace winds streaming past, blue-green auroras wiping the after-images away. Until all that’s left is us” I didn’t learn about these novels until last […]

Book Review: Admiral by Sean Danker

Sean Danker’s Admiral is a tense psychological thriller set in deep space. While the pacing is slow, I was never bored as the pace was reminiscent of Alien. Four people wake up to find they’re alone on a ship in some unknown place, and the crew is dead. The protagonist is labeled to be the Admiral, but it’s […]

Book Review: Morning Star (Red Rising Trilogy) by Pierce Brown

Book Review: Morning Star (Red Rising Trilogy) by Pierce Brown

Even though I’ve wanted to read Pierce Brown’s epic Red Rising series since its release, I never picked it up until this past November. How I managed to wait so long, I have no clue, but I’m glad I finally got the opportunity to read it. It’s a wonderful story of an enslaved people rising up to […]
