Moth and Spark Bob Milne wrote a review
Moth and Spark
Anne Leonard
Although my taste generally runs more towards epic fantasy door-stoppers, with massive world-building and bloated casts of characters, Moth and Spark was an enjoyable diversion. I could have done with less romance and more dragons, and would have ... (more)

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
Claire North
There's at least one book each year that strives to be the next big mainstream/genre crossover . . . one book that tries to achieve a sort of mainstream literary respectability, while still managing to resonate with genre fans. More often than not, ... (more)

Morningside Fall (Legends of the Duskwalker)
Jay Posey
With Morningside Fall, Jay Posey's Legends of the Dustwalker saga is beginning to remind me of Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn Saga. Both series started off strong, with first novels that really impressed me with their imagination and their ... (more)

Island Bob Milne wrote a review
Island
Richard Laymon
As Richard Laymon novels go, Island is definitely one of his lesser works. It's a shame, because it seemed to have so much potential for the patented Laymon brand of bloody carnage and lustful insanity. I mean, here we have one sexually frustrated ... (more)

Grunt Life (Task Force Ombra, #1) Bob Milne wrote a review
Grunt Life (Task Force Ombra)
Weston Ochse
Okay, so let me put this one into context for you. I don't read nearly as much science fiction as I used to, and military science fiction is a sub genre I've really only dabbled in. However, I do appreciate a good alien invasion story, and I was ... (more)

The Martian Bob Milne wrote a review
The Martian
Andy Weir
While I picked up the ARC of this several months ago, I almost didn't bother to give it a read. The "Apollo 13 meets Cast Away" tagline sounded interesting, but it also left me wondering just how Andy Weir was going to pull it off. After all, both of ... (more)

The Troop Bob Milne wrote a review
The Troop
Nick Cutter
What could be worse than being stranded on an uninhabited island? How about being stranded there with a deranged lunatic who is infected with highly-infectious parasitic worms. Not enough? Well, how about not just being stranded, but physically ... (more)

Maze Bob Milne wrote a review
Maze
J. M. McDermott
J.M. McDermott is to be commended for delivering on his rather ambitious concept. This is, first and foremost, the story of a maze . . . but it's also a tale of interwoven lives inside that maze. There is that of Maia, who remembers life aboard a ... (more)

To Sail a Darkling Sea (Black Tide Rising)
John Ringo
If you enjoyed Under a Graveyard Sky, the first in the Black Tide Rising series, or are a fan of John Ringo's unique brand of military-driven science fiction, then odds are pretty good you're going to enjoy To Sail a Darkling Sea. The zombies take ... (more)

The Emperor's Blades (The Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne)
Brian Staveley
While we may only be a month into 2014, I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that Brian Staveley may just have the debut of the year with The Emperor's Blades. This was a book that reminded me, in different ways, of my first encounters with the ... (more)
