The nitty-gritty: A thought-provoking family saga set far in the future, with corporate intrigue, secrets and plenty of finely drawn relationships between children and their parents. Star’s End was not the Cassandra Rose Clarke book I was expecting. But then again, I didn’t really have any expectations when I started, other than I knew that […]

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 […]

And I always love when a favorite author ventures out and […]

The nitty-gritty: Weird and wild, this is one alien invasion story you don’t want to miss. “Give him a change of clothes,” says Oyin Da. She code-switches into Yoruba where her speech is not so devoid of emotion. “I’m not going to see potential adversaries smelling of meat.” “Touch these clothes and you die,” I […]

The nitty-gritty: A fast-paced adventure, back in the exciting world of the quasing, with some new characters, old friends, and plenty of cons, deals and double-crosses. “I’m surprised a man of your qualities managed to find a woman to produce an offspring.” “For every ugly and desperate man, there is an equally ugly and desperate […]
