Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Ready Play­er One by Ernest Cline My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars

Add this book to the short list of must-reads for every True Geek, right along­side Snow Crash. It’s a glee­ful homage to geek­dom and pop cul­ture.

Wade explains to the read­er that he was born after human­i­ty wore the world out and escaped […]

Book Review: More Holmes for the Holiday edited by Martin H. Greenberg & co.

More Holmes for the Hol­i­days by Mar­tin H. Green­berg My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars

Mar­tin H. Green­berg and com­pa­ny have pro­vid­ed a fine col­lec­tion of Sher­lock­ian hol­i­day sto­ries that fit in quite well with the tra­di­tion­al set.

The Christ­mas Gift” by Anne Per­ry is a nice lit­tle piece about a stolen Stradi­var­ius and a […]

Book Review: Dragon Ship by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Drag­on Ship by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars

Sharon Lee and Steve Miller con­tin­ue to please with this lat­est install­ment in the Liaden Uni­verse series. Theo Wait­ley, now First Pilot on the sen­tient ship Bechi­mo, is in the process of decid­ing whether she’s going to bond with the ship per­ma­nent­ly as its […]

Book Review: Ghost Ship by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Ghost Ship by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars

Theo Wait­ley has met her father’s Clan and been Seen by the Delm of Kor­val now, at the end of both I Dare and Salta­tion. She does not, how­ev­er, con­sid­er her­self of Kor­val — she is a Wait­ley, as is rea­son­able for a young […]

Book Review: Saltation by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Salta­tion (Theo Wait­ley, #2) by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars

Salta­tion (Theo Wait­ley, #2) is good enough that I fin­ished Fledg­ling (Theo Wait­ley, #1), then read it in one sit­ting. It sim­ply has the sort of momen­tum that doesn’t allow for good stop­ping points — some­thing that is true of many of […]

Review: Fledgling by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Fledg­ling (Theo Wait­ley, #1) by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars

I half-lis­tened to part of this book as Sam Chupp pod­cast it, chap­ter by chap­ter. For some rea­son, it just didn’t catch my fan­cy back then. I think I didn’t let it catch my fan­cy, because of know­ing that I would have […]

Book Review: Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong

Thir­teen by Kel­ley Arm­strong My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars

Well, Arm­strong def­i­nite­ly closed the series with a bang. I enjoyed this vol­ume so much that I’m tempt­ed to go back and re-read the entire series just to have more right now.

All the char­ac­ters we’ve got­ten to know are back: Clay, Ele­na, Jaime and […]

Book Review: Mouse and Dragon by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Mouse and Drag­on by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars

I’m so pleased that Lee and Miller decid­ed to give us the sto­ry of Daav and Ael­liana after Pilots Choice. (Ear­li­er they had claimed that there was noth­ing to tell there.)

The sto­ry is a love­ly one, def­i­nite­ly roman­tic, told almost entire­ly […]

Book Review: Enthralled edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong

Enthralled by Melis­sa Marr My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars

Jour­neys, lit­er­al or oth­er­wise, are the theme of this young adult anthol­o­gy. Appro­pri­ate­ly enough, it was con­ceived as the result of a book tour.

Giovanni’s Farewell” by Clau­dia Gray is a sweet, com­ing-of-age sto­ry of sorts. The twist is that it fea­tures a broth­er and […]

Review: Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars

Chance must have thought read­ers were bored with the Cassandra/Mircea match, because much of this book is spent with Cassie falling for Pritkin with­out real­ly being aware that she’s get­ting into dan­ger­ous ter­ri­to­ry.

Palmer isn’t one of my favorite char­ac­ters. She isn’t an […]
