Book Review: The Spectras Arise Trilogy by Tammy Salyer

Book Review: The Spectras Arise Trilogy by Tammy Salyer

From the archives! I read these books back in late 2014 and early 2015. If you're a fan of military sci fi, heists, and a good resistance-versus-evil-empire setup, check this series out.

Book Review: Secrets of PEACE by T.A. Hernandez

Book Review: Secrets of PEACE by T.A. Hernandez

I'm in kind of a unique position when reviewing this book because I had the opportunity to read it way back in its infancy. Comparing what it was then to what it has become now would compel me to rate it 5 stars right off the bat. The amount of care and dedication that has been put into...

Book Review: Rath's Trial by Piers Platt

Book Review: Rath's Trial by Piers Platt

I was approached about joining the ARC team for this series last fall and ended up really enjoying the first three books. Imagine my surprise when I received the latest newsletter announcing there would be another trilogy! 

At the end of Book 3, Rath's Reckoning, our heroes more or less wrapped things up in terms of their ongoing battle with the ruthless Janus Group. But nothing...

Book Review: Abysm by G.S. Jennsen

I kinda felt like I'd just reviewed one of G.S. Jennsen's books, and then I realized I had. YOU GUYS, IT HASN'T EVEN BEEN THREE MONTHS. The woman is a machine.

Book Review: Renegade by Joel Shepherd

Book Review: Renegade by Joel Shepherd

I want to start out by saying how absolutely terrible I feel about how long it took me to finish this book. According to Goodreads, I started it February 24, which actually wasn't as long ago as I feared. It really WAS excellent, and the last 30% or so really flew by because I was actually able to devote a proper amount of focus to...

Book Review: Dissonance by G.S. Jennsen

Book Review: Dissonance by G.S. Jennsen

It seems like after every Aurora Rhapsody book I read, I wonder what could possibly come next. Then when those next things happen, I always have a "D'oh!" moment because everything seems so obvious. So inevitable. So perfect. 

While the Aurora Rising trilogy was centered around war and conspiracies...

Book Review: Sidespace by G.S. Jennsen

Book Review: Sidespace by G.S. Jennsen

Let me just start by saying that it has been an absolute honor to beta read for and work with this wonderful lady over the past couple of years. This sprawling saga she has created has become one of my favorite stories!

When I finished Transcendence, I was satisfied. I knew the story wasn’t over...
