Bodacious Creed: A Steampunk Zombie Western by Jonathan Fesmire

Yes, I’ve heard of steampunk and every time I wonder, “Just what does that mean?” So, I looked it up and I’m glad that I did. “Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology of aesthetic designs inspired by 19th century steam-powered machinery.” Thank you, Wikipedia. Armed with that knowledge,… Continue reading Bodacious Creed: A Steampunk Zombie Western by Jonathan Fesmire

Traveller Inceptio by Rob Shackleford

This is a very long book and I was surprised by my willingness to stay with it. Of course, this means it is a very good story. Although they are somewhat entwined, there are three threads woven through this futuristic tale. Here futuristic doesn't mean an earth beyond recognition, but it does mean time travel.… Continue reading Traveller Inceptio by Rob Shackleford

Infected by Scott Sigler

Originally, this was a slow read and took me several days to finish. It's not bad writing, just wordy with a high page count. I would get bored and wander away - for the whole day. But that's only for the first half. It gets better. The writing is somewhat centered on Margaret and Amos,… Continue reading Infected by Scott Sigler

Beacon by Callaghan Grant

This is an enjoyable continuation of Erinn's story. It is an easier read since the first book has a lot of background information, the two books tie nicely together. She is continually surrounded by several lusty Vampyres and by this time she has become one herself, as Michael had intended. While she is still the… Continue reading Beacon by Callaghan Grant

Protocol One by Jacqueline Druga

I was initially drawn to this book by the humorous dialogue between the main characters, Anna and Tony. Sadly, the book quickly lost that humor and became less entertaining. Even though the story is driven by a comet about to hit Earth and destroy life as everyone knows it, I still think a little humor… Continue reading Protocol One by Jacqueline Druga

Chalice by Callaghan Grant

I find Callaghan Grant to be a very talented writer. This is the first of her books that I have read and, in spite of some difficulties, I was captivated by the storyline and how she pulled Erinn, Michael, Paeter, and the audience out of the mire. One must be alert in order to catch… Continue reading Chalice by Callaghan Grant

Through Violet Eyes by Stephen Woodworth

As soon as I started this book I was drawn in. It was well written and there was never a dull moment. It's always a smart move when an author introduces the characters right off the bat, and he did. There wasn't any excessive or unnecessary detail or inane conversation. These were characters that I… Continue reading Through Violet Eyes by Stephen Woodworth
