The nitty-gritty: An addictive, fast-paced science fiction thriller in space, full of buried secrets, cool tech and endlessly interesting characters. I loved the premise for Six Wakes when it first made its way onto my radar, but I had no idea what I was in for when I started reading. This is one of those […]

The nitty-gritty: A feast for the eyes, Gemina surpasses Illuminae in both story and format. This is one science fiction series you need to be reading! According to Goodreads, I finished Gemina on December 7th, which was about three weeks ago. Due to life-stuff, I haven’t posted any reviews since then, which I feel terrible […]

[…]

The nitty-gritty: An instant classic, Railhead deserves a spot up there with some of the best young adult fantasy/science fiction ever written. The train was gone, but he could still see her, striding along beside him in the sodium glow from the trackside lamps. The smell of space clung to her, rich and smoky. What […]

The nitty-gritty: A delightful blend of fantasy, the modern-day film industry, and quirky characters that will make you smile. It was midmorning on a Monday when magic walked into my life wearing a beige Ann Taylor suit and sensible flats. I’ve been salivating over this amazing cover for months now, and I was so excited […]
