Book Review : The Fractured Dark

Book Review : The Fractured Dark

  Ever since I read The Blighted Stars—one of, if not my favorite science fiction novel ever—its sequel has been on my “to read as soon as humanly possible” list.  So as you probably guessed, I was incredibly hyped to read The Fractured Dark. Though I didn’t like the follow-up quite as much as its predecessor, it was still an incredibly fun and suspenseful read.    The novel picks up […]

Book Review : The Keeper’s Six

Book Review : The Keeper’s Six

Since I really enjoyed Kate Elliot’s last novella, Servant Mage, I was pretty excited to read The Keeper’s Six.

Book Review : Neron Rising

Book Review : Neron Rising

I found out about this book through the Reylo community, and I wasn’t disappointed. Though I was expecting more of a blatant fanfiction type of novel, with characters and settings ripped right from the screen, Neron Rising is an original story, with only its inspirations from Star Wars.  Nova, an engineer, lives on the planet Korpillion, one of the few planets deemed inhabitable because it doesn’t have any Neron. This blue substance, […]
