Dangerous Games

I really like horror and I am a gamer, so I thought that I would really like this book. I was right. Each story is different, and yet they all include the adrenaline rush of winning or losing. Some are horror, some are science fiction and s...

Willful Child - Willful Child, #1

It would be so nice if this author could write a science fiction novel that would appeal to both male AND female readers. There ARE female readers who enjoy reading sci-fi – as well as female book reviewers. I love Star Trek but this partic...

Adam - Cyborgs: More Than Machines, #6

Of all the cyborgs, Adam has seemed the most human of them all. Perhaps because he's been on earth among humans, hiding in plain sight. When he interacts with Laura though, he really finds out he's just been imitating life and emotion becau...

Universal Alien - Aliens / Katherine "Kitty" Katt, #10

The science fiction genre can occasionally overwhelm one with esoteric concepts and an overabundance of facts until one is almost bored to tears. That is definitely NOT the problem with this rollercoaster ride of a story. It is already rema...

Hunt for the Hydra - The Jupiter Pirates #1

Hunt for the Hydra was a very good read. My daughter thought there were a few boring parts scattered throughout the book yet she still claims it was an awesome read. There was mystery, action, adventure and lots of characters with amusing n...

The Cipher

This techno thriller is very close to the real world. Which just made it really creepy! Robert (Smiles) was a very good and convincing character. With a side cast of techno geeks this story will grip you until the end pages. These character...

Gods and Monsters - Mythbreaker

Gods and Monsters is the first book I have read by Chuck Wendig and it is one of the best books I have read. The characters were crazy in the best possible way. I really liked that Sam stuck by Fitz through all of the craziness going on. Th...

Stolen - Heart of Dread, #2

Stolen started out really well. It has a fast paced start and it was going very well. But, somewhere along the way it got lost. The story took a turn for the worst and just started to drag. I really loved the story. It made me think about t...

Solaris Rising 3 - The New Solaris Book of Science Fiction

When picking up an anthology to read, I never know what to expect. I do know there are stories that fall under a theme or fit into a genre, but I never can predict just how far those stories will go to stretch the genre just a bit or take m...

Nyctophobia

"Nyctophobia', by Christopher Fowler, is creepy, to say the least, but in a good way. The characters are well-developed and we learn a lot about them throughout the story. Callie, the main character, is easy to identify with. Her lack of co...

Valley of Fires - The Conquered Earth, #3

The Fire Seekers - The Babel Trilogy, #1

This is one of those books that I really wonder how it got published. The book is very very slow. The characters go from being at deaths door to all of a sudden fighting. Things just didn’t make sense. This book is classified as Science Fic...

Feuds - The Feuds Series, #1

UGH. Yup that one word. The story started out weird. It didn’t keep my attention and well it just didn’t work out well. The characters weren't fully developed and the plot started out in the middle of the story. I think it would have been b...

Crewel - Crewel World, #1

Sci-fi Nights - Alpha bad boys & wild girls of futuristic romance

While I love romance set in space or imaginary worlds, I was leery about this box set as some of these stories are part of an ongoing series. However, no fears. Each stands alone is absolutely awesome. It is easy to follow the story lines a...
