Review: Skin Deep by Mark del Franco

Skin Deep by Mark Del Fran­co My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars This is an intrigu­ing begin­ning to a series. I’ve played a char­ac­ter with sim­i­lar abil­i­ties in a long-run­n­ing role­play­ing game, so I was par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ed in this book. I think the author did an excel­lent job of explor­ing just how much could be done […]

Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Ready Play­er One by Ernest Cline My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Add this book to the short­list 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 to OASIS, […]

Book Review: More Holmes for the Holiday edited by Martin H. Greenberg & Jon L. Lellenberg

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 cou­ple who […]

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 Captain. […]

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 woman […]

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 the […]

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 to […]

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, Jere­my, Hope, Karl, […]

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 from Ael­liana’s point […]

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 sis­ter, twins, rather […]
