Notes: This series continues to delight. It went a different area than what I expected, though still pulled through with a happy ending with plenty of things to resolve in the next book.

Following the continuation of Book One “Contact” which I read last year, and really enjoyed, I was delighted to find myself approved for this book within hours of requesting it. Therefore, my thanks to the publisher Nine Star Press, and I am pleased to have read and am reviewing almost immediately within receiving it. (If only all my requests worked out this way!)

Todd Landon is recovering from the attack that took his husband, and many of the Nantreaa that had arrived at Earth last year when they had first visited San Jose. He’s still grieving the loss, but he’s determined to help these visitors of another world settle in without too many hiccups along the way. Yet others are bound and determined to prevent them staying, fear, bigotry, and outright hatred making it difficult for him to do his job as well as he can.

Then there’s Mi’cen and his family. With the political aspects of this book proving to be challenging, as well as interesting in reading, Todd’s attempt at getting to know and understand Mi’cen’s family is fascinating to read and see through his eyes. I loved Todd’s interaction with Faa, a small creature that can speak, and I also liked how everyone was their own person and unique to the story. Each character breathed life to the pages that otherwise would have seemed to be dull and overly political when dealing with an alien ‘invasion’, though really the Nantreaa are more political refugees than anything, as they are trying to find a safe place to stay after their planet was destroyed, their sun having gone supernova.

The whole situation is a bit impressive build-up, and I found myself devouring each page. I really like the author’s writing style, and he explains things reasonably well without pandering or info-dumping the reader. My one complaint was the religious aspects of the book. Granted, it wasn’t bad, and more debatable between aliens and humans which is understandable, but attempting to sway aliens over to a god that they know nothing about? No. Sorry, but I don’t think that would actually fly. Not to mention “God is mysterious, his ways of hurting people always has a reason”-I never liked nor believed that was a good line to tell worshippers. You need to have a better reason than that to make innocent people suffer. Sorry, but that’s just my opinion.

Though since the religion aspect did actually matter and come to play a part in the story-surprising me completely, actually-I actually didn’t mind it overmuch. I found it was actually helpful in the plot as well, because of course when introducing aliens to a human world, they’re going to touch base on religion at some point or another, and it seemed that much more realistic than anything else.

But I digress.

The plot was excellent. The world-building was cool, and the aliens were unique and fascinating. I would have liked to have learned more about their technology, animals, and history, but it focused more on the characters than the actual history of the Nantreaa this time around. I’m hoping that those things will be more explored in book three, or perhaps four if this is a series and not a trilogy.

Overall, I’m definitely giving this a 5/5 stars, because this was a delicious LGBT science fiction with politics, humor, some pretty hefty action towards the end, and a HEA but with enough unresolved issues that it still leaves things wide open for at least two more books. I highly recommend reading these if you like realistic characters, believable science fiction, and a fast paced plot. Book three cannot come fast enough!

Until next time,

New Release Review: The Black God’s Drums

The Black God's Drums

Title: The Black God’s Drums
Author: P. Djeli Clark
Genre: Science Fiction, Adult
Series: Hopefully a Book 1
Publisher: Tor.com
Page Count: 108
Type of Book: New Release, Paperback
Received: Library
Review Word Count: 500
Rated: 5/5 stars
Notes: So short, but oh so good! (Also that mention of Fillory at the acknowledgments at the end of the book!)

The Black God’s Drums swept me away for a solid half hour. I could have finished this book quicker, yet I lingered. It was short, but there was so much packed into it, that I find it’s hard to review such a beautifully well written read. I loved Creeper, and the Captain, and Feral was easily quipped my interest as to her backstory. The rich history and magic flared brightly through each page, and I tip my hat off to the author for one of my now top favorite reads of 2019.

Creeper, a scrappy young teen, is done living on the streets of New Orleans. Instead, she wants to soar, and her sights are set on securing passage aboard the smuggler airship Midnight Robber. Her ticket: earning Captain Ann-Marie’s trust using a secret about a kidnapped Haitian scientist and a mysterious weapon he calls The Black God’s Drums.

But Creeper keeps another secret close to heart–Oya, the African orisha of the wind and storms, who speaks inside her head and grants her divine powers. And Oya has her own priorities concerning Creeper and Ann-Marie…

~As seen on Goodreads

I am hopeful to check out other authors works as they are published. This is well deserved of the hype, and I highly recommend you read this if you read nothing else for the rest of the year. It’s an impressive piece of fiction, and the first piece that I’ve read from this author. It brings to mind short novellas like Binti by Nnedi Orkorfar, and Murdberbot by Martha Wells, it’s that good. Novellas are definitely making a come-up, I think.

Overall, 5/5 stars for a gorgeous piece of fiction that I’m re-reading as soon as I finish posting this review.

New Release Review: Arabella and the Battle of Venus

Arabella and the Battle of Venus

Title: Arabella and the Battle of Venus
Author: David Levine
Series: Book Two
Genre: Science Fiction, Adult Fiction
Publisher: Tor Books
Page Count: 415
Type of Book: Hardback, New Release
Received: Library
Review Word Count: 600
Rated: 4/5 stars
Notes: Ah, Arabella continues to delight! This was a perfect read to read after the heartbreaking trauma of “All the Wandering Light by Heather Fawcett”!

Arabella returns in this dazzling sequel where instead of Mars being the main planet she’s on, it’s Venus. New characters are introduced, as well as old. Her fiance remains true, except he’s been captured and labeled a prisoner of war along with his remaining crew. It’s up to Arabella to harness a new crew to go and save the day.

These books are so delightfully fun! While some of the men are incredibly sexist, and her brother is a bit racist towards her fiance, it’s still full of wit, humor, and sarcasm to delight all readers. There’s plenty of intrigue, as well, and dangerous attacks in space on the ships. A new delightful captain, Daniel Fox Captain of the Touchstone, is equally fun to read!

Brave, a gambler, handsome, and full of wit, I really wanted Arabella to marry Daniel instead of Captain Singh. I digress, however, as this isn’t just about one character that I fell for. This is about Arabella going gallantly into the unknown to face Bonaparte who has escaped and is attempting to restore his empire once more, even as she’s attempting to free her fiance. There’s banter, adventure, and danger throughout this novel, and I treasured every page.

The wait for the next book is going to be just awful. *sighs miserably* Even so, this book was an utter delight, and I give it 4.5/5 stars for an enchanting and entertaining read.

Rated: 4/5 stars
Received: Netgalley
Notes: Death of an lgbt character, but makes sense for the plot. Harsh swearing from two different characters, and a bomb attack about halfway through the book in a populated city.

This is a hard book to review. While I flew through the pages, there’s several things that I didn’t much like about the book-the harsh language, and the death of an lgbt character made it a bit darker for me to read. The harsh language was almost off-putting for me, though I skimmed through a lot of that.

There wasn’t much in the romance department, though the obvious love between the main gay couple was evident and real, and I liked it. There were some issues that I had Jerry and his attitude towards Todd, but it made the character seem more realistic as well.

There’s small handfuls throughout this book of characters bashing LGBT characters, but it improves over time. Todd’s brother started out as hateful and mean, but eventually grew out of that, into something that was a bit more bearable.

The science, aliens, and first contact approach with this book was great. I really liked the detail that the author put into the storyline; it was almost as if I was living it, though unfortunately that’s not the case. I think the coolest thing was Faa and the purple mountains comment.

I definitely look forward to reading book two. The ending was a little bit of a cliff-hanger, though without a lot of ‘must have book two now’ it was more of a, what will happen next kind of thing.

4/5 well deserved stars.

Until next time,

Received: Netgalley ARC
Rated: 4/5 stars
Notes: Science fiction, how I love thee.

While not a book I would have selected were I at a library or bookstore, I selected this one out of the list of books available for review because I’d heard a lot about it, and I’d just finished reading The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers and was definitely in the mood for more of the same. I’d hoped this was similar, and while it’s a good book, I don’t think the two quite match up.

This was a slow burner of a read for me. Science fiction is either super fun and fast paced (see listed book above, as well as The Expanse series, as well as several others) or ridiculously slow and heavy paced with SCIENCE! And while I like science just fine, sometimes there’s lots of paragraphs that explain how things are, and so on. I’m pleased to say that this wasn’t one of those books, and while it wasn’t as fun as The Long Way it was still pretty entertaining to read!

I’m behind on reviews, so I’m posting this late, but overall I really did enjoy this book. It was fun, lots of characters and action and drama. Not sure I’m going to go out and buy a copy, but perhaps one day if I have space/money/time I might.

Overall, I’m giving this a 4/5 stars!

Netgalley Review: The Psychology of Time Travel

 

The Psychology of Time Travel

Title: The Psychology of Time Travel
Author: Kate Mascarenhas
Series:
Genre: Science Fiction
Publisher: Crooked Lane Books
Page Count: 400
Type of Book: ARC
Received from: Netgalley
Rated: 4/5 stars
Notes: That was interesting!

Imagine if you would, four women inventing time travel. You could only travel to the point in time when they made the machine, but still…to be able to see your family and friends again after they’ve perished, to see how things worked when they did…it’s a fascinating concept, that’s for sure.

Therefore, while the idea was good, I was surprised by how much I just didn’t care for any of the characters or their unique ambition in creating time travel. While initially it began as a cool concept, it soon became more about the characters and the lives they lived. Not something I was super interested in.

Still, the story itself was rather cool, and I really liked the first half of it, so I’m giving this a 4/5 stars. Bonus points for that splendid looking cover.

Hardback Book Review: Reap the Wild Wind

Reap the Wild Wind

Notes: Fixed the cover as well as the title of the review thanks to WayTooFantasy! Thanks for the assistance!

Title: Reap the Wild Wind
Author: Julie E. Cznezda
Genre: Science Fiction, Adult
Series: Book 1
Publisher: DAW
Page Count: 600
Type of Book: Hardback, Book I Own
Rated: 4/5 stars
Notes: A slow burn science fiction novel that leaves the book wide open for book two.

I liked this book. I didn’t love it, but the writing was decent, and while it seemed to take forever to finish, I also enjoyed the slow-building plot, the characters, and the world-building involved. The aliens were definitely alien enough for me to have trouble picturing them, and the world was incredible with lots of climbing trees, and avoiding nasty monsters, and just general awesomeness all around.

I really liked this book, but again, it’s not going to be one of my all time favorites I think. I can’t say why for sure, because I don’t know myself. It’s a good book, there’s plenty of action and adventure and survival to be had within, and there’s loads of science as well as fiction too. It’s got everything that a person could want. So I don’t understand why I didn’t love it-perhaps because I just wasn’t connected enough to the characters? Granted, I came to really like them about halfway through the book, when things really started getting interesting, and there was a lot more action going on…

I’m giving this a 4.5/5 stars. Perhaps book two will make me like the series even more? I hope so. I plan on requesting it at the local library, since I don’t own a physical copy. I’m glad to have read this one, and knocked it off my tbr shelf. It took me four days to get through 600+pages, something that doesn’t usually happen, but then there was a lot of backstory, describing everything, and characters to get through. I still look forward to book two, however. Let’s hope it’s even better than the first book!

Netgalley Review: Daisy’s Run

Daisy's Run

Title: Daisy’s Run
Author: Scott Baron
Series: Book 1
Genre: Adult, Science Fiction
Publisher: Curiouser Publishing
Page Count: 400
Type of Book: ARC, Kindle Ebook, Netgalley Read
Review Word Count: 400
Rated: 4/5 stars
Notes: This book will make you think. It’s a fast paced actiony romance set in the future. And the ending was a cliffhanger.

I’m still thinking about this book. I stayed up until about two in the morning to finish it (couldn’t sleep anyway, so why not read a book if you’re tossing and turning?), and was left wanting more due to it cutting off rather abruptly at the end. The book is set in the future, there’s some romance going on, and there’s lots of action, conspiracies, and general futuristic “how can this have happened” type of stuff going on.

Warnings/slightly spoilers sorry: romantic relationships with cyborgs, death of a main character, dismemberment of an arm via a door, swearing, graphic detailed descriptions of the end of the world, AI’s vs. Humans…uh-can’t really think of what else to add.

I liked the characters. While Daisy was the main character that I was rooting for, I also really liked Vince and Finn-Finn, because he seemed like the sort that I would really like due to his sarcastic nature and being an incredible chef. Vince was also an interesting figure, and not one that I normally go for, but towards the end of the book he moves mountains to get Daisy back safe and sound and doesn’t hold a grudge for some spoiler or another.

There were a couple of issues that I had with this book. I think another editor could look it over, because some of the conversations seemed a bit jarring, and confusing. I’ll have to go through it again and find my highlights for examples, but I think most readers will be able to push through it fine.

I’m giving this a 4/5 stars. The book wasn’t perfect, it was a bit of a slow build up into a ‘wow I did not see that coming’ kind of read, and some of the characters were a bit off-putting. I hope the second book gets to be even better than the first, and definitely look forward to reading it!

Until next time,

ARC Review: Irontown Blues

 

Irontown Blues

Title: Irontown Blues
Author: John Varley
Series: Book One
Genre: Science Fiction, Mystery
Page Count: 304
Publisher: ACE
Type of Book: Paperback, New Release, ARC
Review Word Count: 500
Rated: 4/5 stars
Notes: Thanks very much to the publisher for sending me an advanced copy!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! While it alluded to some earlier series that I hadn’t read at all (the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5) this was still an overall fun, quick, and lovely atmospheric and futuristic gem of a book. Sherlock was an excellent character, despite being a bloodhound, and I found myself greatly interested in the storyline, characters, and how it turns out in the end. The dark sense of humor throughout the book was excellently woven into the plot, and made me laugh in delight several times. I am now a fan of the author, and definitely look forward to investing into the rest of this series.

A new noir science fiction novel from a master of science fiction set in the Eight Worlds series about a detective on the hunt for biohackers who have created a dangerous new disease.

-As read on Goodreads

I really enjoyed this new start to a series that is as promising as it looks, and am invested in reading the rest of the series as it comes out. I hope to find book two soon, and snag it either as an arc or a book purchased from the store, either way. Sherlock the dog was my favorite character of all, I believe, though I really did enjoy Chris, as well as his mother who liked to work with rare and extinct animals.

I also think that the entire series-both its predecessor series and this new series, ought to be turned into a Netflix show. It could quite possibly give The Expanse a run for its money, though its definitely different than that of the Expanse, it does show some of the same kind of world-building vibes at times.

New Release Review: Pride and Prometheus

 

PrideandPrometheus

A fascinating blending of two favorite classic novels!

New Release Review: Pride and Prometheus

Title: Pride and Prometheus
Author: John Kessel
Genre: Science Fiction, Romance
Page Count: 400
Publisher: Baen Books
Type of Book: Hardback, library loan, New Release
Review Word Count:
Rated: 3.9/5 stars
Notes: huh?

This was a strange book. On the one hand, I really liked it’s originality and I loved Mary’s character. But on the other hand, it definitely isn’t going to be one of my favorites. I liked the pride and prejudice combination with the Frankenstein monster romance. It was certainly a unique twisted idea, and I think it’s the twisted part that I didn’t care for. It was a bit…dark…for my tastes, I think. I also don’t like that time period, with how women are treated as a whole. As if women don’t matter except to further the family line.

I had to do a re-read of the book to see where I stand on this book, and I think it’s safe to say it deserves a bit more than three stars, but not by much. The hype of the book is definitely deserved, but…well, all I can say is that this book just wasn’t for me.

I will recommend it to those who want something outside of the box, and give this book 3.9/5 stars!

Until next time,

New Release Review: Medusa Uploaded

 

Medusa Uploaded

I think I found Murderbot’s sister!

MEDUSA UPLOADED

Title: Medusa Uploaded
Author: Emily Devenport
Genre: Science Fiction
Page Count: 317
Publisher: Tom Doherty Publications
Type of Book: Kindle Ebook, New Release
Review Word Count: 400
Rated: 5/5 stars
Notes: Definitely for fans of The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells, as well as for some dark twisted science fiction that’s cleverly written.

~*~*~*~

Here tells the tale of Murderbot’s sister, a killer on board a generation ship heading towards a new home…

Well, she’s not really Murderbot’s sister, but it sure reads like it. I have the feeling that Medusa and Murderbot would get along great with one another, each of them swapping stories of how to kill people and who survived better in their own way. I would love to see a combination of Medusa Uploaded with Murderbot, but sadly I don’t think that will happen.

Anyway. Back to the story itself.

This was one of the many new releases that I purchased in that Kindle Ebook Haul of 50+books, and it was money well spent! I loved Medusa, and the unique world that was centered around her. Keep in mind, this is as heavy duty as Game of Thrones in killing off people rapidly, in every chapter I believe, except for Medusa herself. So don’t go getting attached to anyone, because it won’t end well.

The story revolves around a girl who slowly becomes uploaded into Medusa, a being that’s meant to carry thousands of souls. While it’s not a hive mind kind of situation, it’s certainly an interesting one. The generation ship is heading towards a new world, along with its sister ship Titania-of which gets destroyed with the girls parents on board. Things spiral from there, and there are a multitude of murders plotted, committed, and produced. It’s a blood-thirsty tale of revenge, survival of the fittest, and where only the smartest live on.

I highly recommend this to those who loved Murderbot. It’s got the same flair, though there aren’t as many witty remarks, it’s still definitely going to be one of my favorite reads of the year. Medusa Uploaded is sure to be a great way to kill the time, and find some new interesting ways of killing people. At least when it comes to writing fiction.

Hardback Book Review: Landry Park

Landry Park

Title: Landry Park
Author: Bethany Hagen
Series: Duology, Book 1
Genre: YA Science Fiction, Romance
Page Count: 375
Publisher: Dial Books an Imprint of Penguin
Type of Book: Hardback, Library Loan
Review Word Count: 800
Rated: 5/5 stars
Notes: Almost 1000 words for this review. Whew!

This book was an interesting one. On the one hand, I really really liked it. On the other hand, I’m getting really tired of higher up societies enslaving the poor. Granted, it’s a popular topic, and several books do a really good job of figuring out how they can get free, and create a new society. But I’m still getting tired of it.

The poor in this book isn’t referred to as ‘poor’ but rather they are called ‘the Rootless’. Landry Park is the mansion in which the main character, Madeline Landry, lives. She is the oldest child, as well as the only child, meaning that once she marries, she will inherit the estate. And while she loves her home with a fierce passion, she does not wish to run it. She wishes to go to university, and further her intelligence.

While initally, I liked Madeline as a character, towards the end of the book I disliked her. She falls for a guy named David Dana, who is part of a filthy rich family. Madeline’s father wishes for her to marry David so that they can make their family gain more money, as they are slowly dwindling towards debt. But Madeline doesn’t wish to marry. She wants freedom to go to school.

But then after meeting him at a party, she starts to like him. It helps she didn’t know who he was at first, because neither of them introduced themselves-they were both hiding out from the party, and David was smoking. The two of them converse, and then Cara, an old friend of Madeline who at first in the book is a bit of a hateful little bitch, eventually grows into a character that I really like.

Anyway.

The story progresses. There becomes a love triangle, after David goes off to the war, and Madeline attempts to find ways to help the Rootless, against her father’s wishes. She brings them food, money, and even donates blood at one point. But her efforts are too little, too late. The Rootless are slowly dying from various cancers due to radiation poisoning. Back during when America was a country of democracy, her great-grandfather had come up with idea to enslave the poor to working for what was known as ‘The Gentry’, and he created a whole new system of government. The upper class, and the Rootless, essentially. Actually, I rather hated Madeline’s great-grandfather. He was a bit of an egotistical ass, it felt like.

The story continues. David gets back from the war as a hero with his buddy Jack MacAvory. David debuted with her old friend Cara, and so of course she tells Jack that she has no relationship with him-even though her heart is breaking.

This is where I start to dislike Madeline a bit. While she’s good in wanting to help out the Rootless, and still help her family at the same time, the way she treated Jack really made me angry at her. As soon as she discovers that David didn’t really debute with Cara, and that he’s loved her all along, she starts to tell Jack that she’s sorry she’s lied, and that she wants David. David’s already informed him of the same thing, because the two are friends and don’t keep secrets from another. This is all after Jack’s already proposed marriage to her, of course, despite the fact that the two of them have only known each other for less than two weeks, Jack had fallen for her hard.

Madeline leaves him at the house, and goes of with David in his sleigh. This is all after she found her great-grandfather’s journals, and discovered several secrets that helped the Rootless cause, and so on and so forth. (I’m not giving away all the plot, after all.)

While I really enjoyed the story, I still wished that the love triangle thing hadn’t occurred. I also wish it didn’t leave things wide open for book two, the final part of the duology. Thankfully, however, book two is already out so it won’t be a problem for me to continue where the story leaves off…on a happy ending with everything unresolved. So that’s all there is of book one, and I definitely look forward to getting book two! I wonder if it’s going to be a ‘several months later’ kind of thing, or pick up right where it left off. I’ll let you know.

Until next time,

New Release Review: Vox

Vox2

Title: Vox
Author:  Christina Dalcher
Series:  Don’t think so
Genre: Science Fiction
Page Count: 336 pages
Publisher: Berkley
Review Word Count: 500
Rated: 5/5 stars
Notes:

This was a gut-wrenching novel that made me hate it just a little, or at least hate how the future could become. In a futuristic world where women can only speak 100 words a day, it was reminiscent of “The Handmaid’s Tale” but made took the story and added new layers of awful. Women have no control, and all their funds and possessions are legally owned by their husbands or next of kin. They’re required to wear bracelets (it can be any color or design, as long as it was simple and elegant) that caused an electric shock that felt more and more painful if you speak more than a hundred words.

Jean is the main character, and she describes how she went from speaking the normal amount of words a day, to almost nothing. Her daughter, Sonia (I *love* that name) is in the same boat, but starts going mute, saying nothing at all. Her sons are oblivious, aside from Steven, the oldest, who is a bit of an ass about it all.

This book has strong feminism qualities, LGBT characters, dark angsty vibes, and it will make you hate. Especially if you are a woman. The unjustice of it all, the way the men are so full of themselves and talk down to women as if we were nothing more than animals that need to be properly trained and made so that we are completely obedient for them…I see the irony in saying this, but I have no words for describing how much hate I feel about all of it.

I still loved the story, especially the main character. I don’t believe I’ve ever read a character’s point of view who was over 40, closing in at 45 and this was a refreshing change, and she was a smart woman who had earned a degree, and was strong and brave.

I have to say that my absolute favorite character, however, is probably Jackie. After being kept silent for a handful of years, the first thing she says made me grin so wide that my cheeks still hurt writing this.

If you’re active in the feminism community, I encourage you to read this book. If you’re active in the LGBT community I encourage you to read this book. If you’re active in the community in keeping people from being caged up, tortured, put in slave camps, and treating women like we’re no better than animals, I highly encourage you to read this book.

Awarding this 5/5 stars, not because I was given an arc of this book, but because I really loved it, and the message it spread: fight against this. Make some noise. DO NOT BOW DOWN IN SILENCE.

Until next time,

My May Reads for 2018

This month has flown by, whereas last month felt like it had gone so incredibly slow. This marks the start of ‘three more months until my birthday’ countdown, as well! I hope this year that I can actually be getting more books for my birthday, as usually birthday presents are a bit of a bust for me.

I’ve finished quite a few books last month, several new releases, arcs, and a few library finds fit into the pile. I’m very pleased with how much I’ve read, though I could have read more if I wasn’t working on writing my own book that I hope to have finished here soon. Anyway, here’s the books read:

Some of these I’ve yet to post reviews for, but that’s because I’m still working on my blog (book reviews still pending: To Kill a Kingdom, The Tory, etc.) I just got an email from a couple of publishers who are happy with how my blog looks, and are willing to send me more arcs to read, so that will keep me busy in the coming month as well! June is looking to be another excellent month in reading, and I look forward to it!

Now then, tell me which books you’ve read out of this post, which ones you think I should read next, and which ones I need to review asap! I look forward to hearing your responses!

Until the next time,
