Rogue – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ “People used to live on a planet called Earth that was so close to a star – to the sun – that the light from it could cause first-degree burns if you weren’t careful. Hard to imagine that.” I haven’t read sci-fi for a while so this one was a very welcome…

A Stranger’s Tale – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A time long ago, when the Moon and Sun were friends and shared the same sky, a strange man wandered down an even stranger path.” I haven’t read a good fantasy book for months and this short story was perfect for me to get back into the swing of things. It brought…

The Archons Rise – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ “The world will remember this day. Decisions made by your leaders are not without consequence. This is just the beginning.” I really enjoyed this book! As heavy as this one can be in parts, it’s such a detailed book with an ending that’s incredibly rewarding. With such great characters and a plot…

Cycles Of The Phoenix – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ “When the imminent battle commences, you may wonder which side will attain victory, the heroes or the opposition?” This book was not what I thought it would be, at all! I expected one long book of fantasy, which, even though it’s not my favourite genre, I was looking forward to reading. However,…

Flight Of The 500 – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “He’d shown them. His crew, the other racers, everyone. Raith was back.” After reading this author’s first novel, First Of Their Kind, and absolutely loving it, I was very excited to hear about another book set in the same universe! Even though it’s a standalone novel, it’s also the sequel to First…

Hot Ash and the Oasis Defect – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “All the grief that made her want to squeeze her eyes and weld them shut forever was being redirected into the molten core of her soul.” I was very pleasantly surprised with this one! After reading an intriguing blurb about a hi-tech future, women rulers and a killer on the loose, I…

Vanishing Hour – Book Review

Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Matthew hated Tuesday’s the most. At least he used to. Until the Tuesday that changed everything.” I’m a sucker for a good character and I also (secretly) enjoy a bit of an emotional read. This book was far better than I could have possibly imagined and it combined all my favourite elements into…

Monica With A ‘K’ Saves The World – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ “It was a race to dominate planets and win their resources.” Having only read this author’s memoir so far, I was really keen to see how good his fictional work was in comparison. It was rather strange comparing an author’s talent for writing with a real life story and a fictional story,…

Dandelion Seeds – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My first review of a collection of short stories! I absolutely loved this sci-fi collection – such a wide variety of topics, different characters and settings to satisfy my fictional craving, all neatly packed into one book. I really liked how different this was for me and how many stories I’ve enjoyed…

The Final Lesson – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “One day, I’ll be a Warlord. But right now, we’re both amateurs in the field of magic.” This one has been on my TBR list for so long and I am so happy to finally be sharing my review! Not only was it such an involving, exciting read, but it has also…
