The Legacy Human (Singularity #1), by Susan Kaye Quinn

I first heard of Susan Kaye Quinn when I read her YA sci-fi novel, Mindjack. It was one of the best indie books I had ever (or have ever) read. I made a point to contact her and strike up a brief conversation. Later, after she penned a middle grade story, we were thrilled to add […]

Out of the Silent Planet (The Cosmic Trilogy), by C.S. Lewis (1938)

A huge fan of C.S. Lewis’s Narnia series, I recently purchased the first in his “adult” sci-fi trilogy, Out of the Silent Planet. It’s comparable to H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, who wrote a few decades earlier than Lewis. But I found I didn’t care for this one as much as the work I’ve read […]

The Gypsy Pearl: Tye (Gypsy Pearl, 3), by Lia London

This has been one of my favorite recent series. And it just so happens to be written by a friend of mine, Lia London. (But she became a friend after I’d been introduced to her fabulous writing.) Today, I’m featuring the newly released  third and final book in her Gypsy Pearl series, which I had […]

Spaces, by Lois D. Brown

I believe it was late 2011 or early 2012 when I received a request to review a new indie novel called Cycles. I hesitated at the word “indie.” Even though I wanted to support independent authors–I am one–as a book blogger I received an awful lot of unprofessional junk being passed off as indie novels. But this blurb really […]

Noah Zarc: Cataclysm (Noah Zarc, #2), by D. Robert Pease, Book Review

D. Robert Pease has done it again. His first MG novel, Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble, was given the very first Bookworm Blather Squeaky Award. His sequel, Cataclysm, is just as good. (Check out my review of Mammoth Trouble and my 5-Q interview with the author.) In book one, Noah’s family had embarked on a scientific mission of […]

Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble, by D. Robert Pease, 2011, Book Review

One thousand plus years into the future of our solar system, Earth has been destroyed. People now live on Mars and Venus, fly around in the coolest space ships, and utilize amazing technology (like holopads, personal flying thermsuits, chef-bots that speak with French accents, and neuro implants). They’ve even perfected time travel. But, unfortunately, all […]
