Siege Of Stars: Book One of The Sigil Trilogy
Siege Of Stars: Book One of The Sigil Trilogy
by Henry Gee
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.72

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Science Fiction with a Human Touch, 10 Nov 2014
In 'Sigil' Henry Gee creates epic science fiction, but he does something quite unusual: this is story populated by real people and real science. Gee understands science, not only the mechanics, but it's place in understanding human history, and the importance of the culture of science. I was fascinated by the premise that geology revealed an ancient hidden history of the Earth.

Adeptly, Gee turns his story eye through the countless ages, illuminating the tales of people, both human and not so human, but always believable. And I must give a shout out to 'horrible' a jumper with a character of its own. I read this as part of the trilogy, and immediately went on to devour the next installment.

If you like your SF noir, with a cracking pace and memorable characters you should give this novella a try.

I am a fan of short horror fiction, the author has served up eleven disturbing tales in this collection. She has the knack of outlining the strangeness in the everyday situation. And a darkly wicked sense of humour.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, Concise Analysis of the Tragedy, 9 May 2014
The disappearance of the MD370 makes a compelling story. My heart went out to the families waiting for news, while at the same time I was intrigued by the story. How could an airplane just disappear?
Sadly there are no answers—yet.
But this book gives an insight into what could have happened. The author considers the many theories, and turns her expert eye upon them.
What I liked about her analysis was the use of examples of other real life plane crashes. That really clarified the issues for me. It's a book that made sense of the headlines.


The Graveyard Girl (The Necromancer's Inheritance Book 1)
The Graveyard Girl (The Necromancer's Inheritance Book 1)
Price: £2.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Urban Fantasy, 9 May 2014
Rose is just out of high school when she discovers that she's inherited the family talent for necromancy. Slowly she learns that her talent can be used for good or for evil. Unfortunately that's not an opinion shared by the three agents of light who are intent on destroying Rose and anyone who gets in their way.

The Graveyard Girl is a book with engaging characters in an appealing setting (The descriptions of the New Mexican/Cajun cuisine made me hungry).

It’s a book that would appeal to both New Adult and YA fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Fantasy Read, 2 May 2014

This review is from: Ironskin (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed reading IronSkin. It tells the story of a governess employed by the troubled, but undeniably attractive, Mr Rochart to care his young motherless daughter. Set in a gothic country home against the backdrop of an ominous forest, the parallels between IronSkin and Jane Eyre are strong. Yet IronSkin is an ingenious alternate world, where humans know that the fey and dwarves are real.
IronSkin is set in the time after the Great War with the fey. Humans are slowly rebuilding their world without the wondrous fey technology.
But some have been damaged by the war. Jane is coming to terms with her scarred face and fey curse. Her young charge has also been inexplicably cursed by the fey.
The author using evocative language, gliding over the surface glamour of a world of Bright Young Things, powerfully describing the dark country mansion, the menacing forest of thorny locusts.
In IronSkin we meet a cast of fascinating characters, feisty Jane, brooding, but don't forget attractive, Mr Rochart, Jane's shallow but charming sister, the intriguing butler, Poule.
And at its heart IronSkin has mystery. The author skillfully spins her spell to reveal those secrets into a fascinating story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Tales of Time Askew, 29 Jan 2014

This review is from: Out of Time (Kindle Edition)
Two short stories from author Milo James Fowler exploring time. Both stories are engaging, well written and fast moving.

The first tale is surprised me with it's dark ending. The main character is out of time and it leads to tragedy, or does it? The second tale is more positive with a resourceful main character. The two tales are a very nice contrast and well matched.

Recommended. I'd like to see more time tales from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Enjoyable Future Noir with a Dollop of Wry Humour, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simms is a Genehunter in a grim future. He finds the DNA of the famous and infamous dead, and he doesn't much care what the rich want to do with that DNA. If that DNA gets cloned and the clones get put in a private zoo, it's not Simms problem.

Enter the world of the Genehunter. Call it tech noir, but add a big dollop of wry humour. This is a world of cloning, transporter technology and people with a brains full of cool enhancements, set in a London that never seems to stop raining.

The author has created an intriguing future world and an intriguing hero. You shouldn't like Simm, but I felt myself warming to him. Add rival groups of fanatics, a thriller of a plot, with twists that I did not see coming and you get yourself a fast and very, very enjoyable read.

Highly Recommended.
