A self-professed geek and proud of it, I started reading at a tender age and never really stopped until work got in the way for several years.  I regained my voracious appetite for books a few years back and then started to enjoy writing down my thoughts.  I am more of an emotional/instinctual rather than a critical reader. 

Aside from reading, I enjoy outdoor sports (running, hiking, cycling, an occasional frisbee game), photography and travelling.

The Silver Tide (The Copper Cat, #3) 27, Jan

4.5/5 stars.

Conclusions can be tricky, and I've been disappointed by quite a few.  Thankfully, The Silver Tide does not belong in that unfortunate category.   The denouement of this underrated Copper Cat trilogy was utterly satisfying and even brought a little lump in my throat as I bid farewell to the Black Feather Three to whom I've grown quite attached.

Alien: Out of the Shadows (Canonical Alien Trilogy, #1) 25, Jan

4/5 stars.

Surprisingly engaging and utterly thrilling, this audio dramatisation of an Alien novel is quite superb.

The Iron Ghost (The Copper Cat, #2) 18, Jan

4/5 stars.

The Iron Ghost is a strong sequel to The Copper Promise.  We have the necessary development of the main characters, whom I have grown to like quite a fair bit.  Then there are higher stakes at hand and expanded worldbuilding.  And to top it all off, a whole lot more magic is involved in the storytelling.
