Book Update -The Secret Beneath The Ice

This short story is like a mini prequel to a larger space series. The Secret Beneath The Ice was well written and serves its main purpose – a basic introduction the world of Aravinda. I think that Andrew M. Crusoe had the right idea in mind with this story. I’m just not entirely sure it…

Book Update – In For The Kill

Finally getting to post something new in regards to new books read. Over the past week things have been a little wacky with work. Plus, a nasty blister making typing rather painful and awkward. Lesson learned be sure to bring my gloves to work even if I think I won’t need them. Those two things…

The Art of Book Sleuthing

One of the thing that I like to do on a regular basis is to find new books. It’s definitely not because I need more books or have a shortage of things to read. Some of it is curiosity of what is new, interesting, or simply finding those hidden gems that are available. Since I began…

Book Update – Execution is Everything

This novella was something I found as a suggested read after getting Intent which I wrote about recently. I have to say that Execution is Everything while it is rightly considered a crime thriller it didn’t immediately seem like it. The action was pretty limited to short scenes up until about 60% of the way…

Book Update – Restless

Just by random chance I picked up this book while browsing through the slew of free items on Amazon a couple of days back. Restless is a short story that acts a bit like a prequel to Aurora Rising series. G. S. Jennsen does a good job introducing the reader to this series with this…

Book Update – Intent

I had heard of the author, Jeff Olah, prior to picking up Intent. Finding this short story was sort of just a random coincidence. I was more interested in grabbing the prequel to his zombie series The Dead Years. If the writing of those books is anything like this one in both quality and story…

Book Update – Far From Home

I know that I’ve mentioned this series in prior postings. Far from Home is a space drama by Tony Healey that I have been working through. I have the omnibus version that has the entire collection. However, I felt that it was better to break up the actual updates for the series by the individual…

Book Update – Dreamers

This short story by J. R. Frontera is an interesting take on space sci-fi, but ultimately not all that original. The story reminded me of the very beginning of a space sci-fi show that I watched the first season of last year called Dark Matter. Dreamers actually felt too short not giving it quite enough time to fully…

Book Update – Zero Hour Episode 1

Zero Hour by Eamon Ambrose was a short story I picked up a couple of days ago for free on sort of a whim. To be totally honest I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect out side of it being a post-apocalyptic tale. Really, I had basically nothing to lose giving this title a shot…

Book Update – Life After Episode 14

Last year I found the Life After Series by JJ Holden and read the first half. I’m now working my way through the next half so the chances are there may be more posts about this series over the next couple weeks. Very likely actually. Right from the beginning I have enjoyed these books by…

Book Update – Black

This book by Ted Dekker is a little unusual primarily in how it is written. The chapters in Black alternate between two worlds. At first it was a little difficult to get used to since it was more difficult to really feel invested in either world or the characters. After a while the flipping back and…

Book Update – Dynasty of Evil

Over past couple months I have enjoyed listening to the Darth Bane Trilogy by Drew Karpyshyn. This final book was very good and I’m glad one of my co-workers suggested this Star Wars series. In a way I wish this one was more than just the three books, but really the series was tied up…
