Titan Hoppers by Rob J. Hayes - Book Review 14, Oct

Titan hoppers is a fast paced, fun sci-fi fantasy story with strong characters. Rob J. Hayes delivers another world, and another novel that is sure to engross and entertain. I’ve read a few of his books now and every time I pat myself on the back for skipping it to the top of my TBR.

Jade Legacy (The Green Bone Saga #3) by Fonda Lee -Book Review 29, Sep

Jade Legacy sets the standard for great urban fantasy trilogies. In the culmination of her Green Bone Saga, Lee achieves a novel that feels epic in a different way than other fantasy stories. The narrative doesn’t aspire to grandiose feats of magic, or world-shaking stakes of cosmic proportions, it paints the image of a family, and sets them down in the heart of a whirlwind.

Red Rising (Red Rising Saga #1) by Pierce Brown - Book Review 29, Jul

Red Rising is a dystopian science fiction novel of oppression and revolution…sort of. Darrow is slave. A Red. A downtrodden caste living beneath the surface of Mars. When his life is upended by the cruelty of the Golds, his society’s lofty rulers, Darrow embarks on a quest to transform his society. For me, this story was all about the contrast between setup and pay off. The whole thing is very well written, and definitely a page turner, but the story I was promised and the story I got, didn’t quite jive.
