Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

The Zero Stone is a magical book for me in some ways. I first ran into The Zero Stone (and Andre Norton) in elementary school. I was a voracious reader even then and apparently, my elementary school had a fabulous catalog. At the time I read The Zero Stone, I… Read more »

Review: We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse #1) by Dennis E. Taylor

Review: We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse #1) by Dennis E. Taylor

I adored We Are Legion. The Bobs are a lot of fun – though I prefer Bob 1.0 (or is that Bob 2.0?). I have to say, I’m really running into some great Space Operas. I have high hopes this trend will continue. The beginning was only sightly slow but… Read more »

Review: After the Crown by K.B. Wagers (The Indranan War #2)

I love Empress Hail: I took the glass. “To vengeance.” [Redacted] raised his glass. “I have seen that look before. I would have pity for those you seek, but for the fact that I know they deserve whatever you have planned. May you find your revenge and may it taste… Read more »

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

I loved All Systems Red. The very first chapter let me know that I was really going to enjoy this ride. And I did. I COULD HAVE BECOME a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module, but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels… Read more »

Review: Behind the Throne (The Indranan War #1) by K.B. Wagers

Review: Behind the Throne (The Indranan War #1) by K.B. Wagers

I really enjoyed Behind the Throne but not for (all) my usual reasons. I was a little skeptical in the beginning – Haili IS a runaway princess and that’s trope-y from beginning to end – but this was a runaway hit for me. I like that Haili isn’t a push… Read more »

Review: She Wolf and Cub by Lilith Saintcrow

Review: She Wolf and Cub by Lilith Saintcrow

Even though I have now finished She Wolf and Cub, I’m still not sure how I feel about it. It felt like a lot of the book was set in an already established universe. As a reader, I was not given a map to this universe and thus I felt… Read more »

Review: The Collapsing Empire (The Interdependency #1) by John Scalzi

Review: The Collapsing Empire (The Interdependency #1) by John Scalzi

WOW. John Scalzi is quickly becoming one of my favorite Sci-Fi writers. I enjoyed reading The Collapsing Empire so very much, I have no words. I devoured this book in huge chunks and I was distracted at work all day yesterday – I was so anxious to get home and… Read more »

Review: Earthrise (Her Instruments #1) by M.C.A. Hogarth

Review: Earthrise (Her Instruments #1) by M.C.A. Hogarth

I’m not really sure how I feel about Earthrise. I went through several stages of emotions while reading and…they just don’t add up. Earthrise is the first book in the Her Instruments series. I initially started reading because I was drawn to the cover. Several friends on GR have been… Read more »

Review: A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers #2) by Becky Chambers *spoilers*

Review: A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers #2) by Becky Chambers *spoilers*

I absolutely loved reading A Closed and Common Orbit. I enjoyed reading the sections on Pepper/Jane 23 more than on Sidra/Lovelace but when taken as a whole, I wanted to hug this book! I felt that A Closed and Common Orbit clearly exemplifies the idea of “if you can’t see… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Original Flash Fiction (3/3)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Original Flash Fiction (3/3)

Standard Deviant by Holly Schofield – Narrated by Cassandra Campbell – 2.5 stars “Standard Deviant” is rather long (for flash) with very little payoff. The majority of the story has the heroine hiding behind a car. She calls the car’s owner her boyfriend (but he’s not) but then says she… Read more »
