I’m thrilled to be part of the blog tour for Cytonic, the third book in the brilliant Skyward series! I was lucky enough to get a glimpse of the first few chapters before its release, so here are my first impressions…Continue reading “Blog Tour: Cytonic by Brandon Sanderson”
I really enjoyed Alastair Chisholm’s debut sci-fi, Orion Lost (review here), so I was thrilled to get a chance to review Adam-2!Continue reading “Review: Adam-2 by Alastair Chisholm”
When it comes to YA, one of my favourite kinds is the sparkly-dresses-and-marriage-contest kind – think The Selection for the perfect archetype. So I was really excited to hear about The Stars We Steal, which combines those tropes with a space setting and draws inspiration from Jane Austen’s Persuasion – and it was everything I wanted it to be!
I don’t see a lot of middle grade science fiction – certainly not space-based! – so I was really intrigued when Orion Lost showed up unannounced on my doorstep… It’s a really enjoyable rollick of a spaceship adventure!
Victor Dixen’s phenomenal Phobos trilogy comes to an explosive and astonishing end in the finale, Collision!
If you love stories where the stakes are high and the games are twisty, then The Gameshouse is where you need to go…
Seeing this post-apocalyptic tale compared to Station Eleven (which I really didn’t like!), I had some trepidation going in. I shouldn’t have worried, though, as A Boy and his Dog at the End of the World is a wholly different beast, and I loved it!
I’ve had a slump when it comes to high-tech, space-shippy sci-fi for a few… years. But between Elizabeth Bear’s Ancestral Night and this book, I think I’m a reborn spaceship lover??
Elizabeth Bear is one of my favourite authors. I loved Karen Memory with my entire heart (steampunk Seattle noir with badass lesbian prostitutes and giant mecha sewing machines – if you haven’t read it, you gotta!), and when I was lucky enough to meet her at a Gollancz event a couple of years ago, she’s just the nicest, funniest person and I kind of want to be her when I grow up. Anyway. I was thrilled to be offered a spot on this blog tour for her newest book, Ancestral Night, which is a huge, sweeping space opera. It’s SO good. Continue reading “Blog Tour: Ancestral Night”
Today is publication day for one of my most anticipated books of the year, Skyward by Brandon Sanderson, and I am so so so thrilled to be kicking off the blog tour for you!
