The Shadows of the Multiverse
The Shadows of the Multiverse
Price: £2.23

5.0 out of 5 stars Space tentacles, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Damnit, why are all this authors books so addictive?

This one is written a little differently to all the others, but most of the technology found in this can be found in his other works, like acceleration tanks on ships. It's not bogged down with technobabble though, and does a great job of simulating a huge universe without overwhelming the reader with useless stats and figures. All in all, another great book.

A great non stop action packed read, a much better book than book 4. Couldn't put it down!

The humans do keep winning 'easy' though!

3.0 out of 5 stars Plants and zombies, 25 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: H1NZ (Kindle Edition)
Ever wondered what a plant based zombie attack would be like in the UK? Well, this is the book for you.

It's written from different characters point of view as they try to escape the plant based carnage, and there doesn't seem to be much to it apart from that. It was a short cheap read, but ultimately forgettable, unlike the authors other fantastic reads such as Firmware or BFTSS series.

So if you want a good zombie or horror book, this probably isn't for you - it's hard to get scared about a giant sunflower melding with you. I really tried to like this book, but in the end the story just didn't do it for me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite like Ready Player One, 13 Jun. 2013

I enjoyed this, as it reminded me of Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It's not quite as 'fun', but it is a really good story :D

4.0 out of 5 stars Great short stories by Jack Campbell, 13 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ad Astra (Kindle Edition)
Jack Campbell does it again with a great set of short stories. My favourite is Lady Be Good, but Kyrie Eleison is also a good book. (Well, they all are!)

Well worth the couple of quid, when you consider a standard paperback is £8 these days!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great third in the series, 13 Jun. 2013

I really like all of Doug Dandridges books, especially those set in the Donut universe. I really enjoy the Exodus series so far, and this one was no exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Great stories, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed these short stories. I'll review them in order

Rift: Standard alien massacre of humans, until you figure out that it's all about humans not understand the aliens, because they do think alien.

Swords and saddles: My least favourite of the three, but still an entertaining short read about US Cavalry who get stuck in a parallel universe.

Failure to Obey: I loved the JAG in space series, so this was just great. And there was no Paul Sinclair in this one! I do have one question about the JAG in space universe though - when does anyone get any time to do anything? They're always in bloody court! :D

4.0 out of 5 stars A good quick read, but not very memorable, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a sci fi book by Doug Dandridge that for once doesn't seem to involve the Donut, as it's set before the Donut would even be thought about.

It's a good and gruesome action book, however it is full of Deus Ex Machinas with the humans pulling all sorts of little rabbits out of their hats to defeat the invaders.

All in all, a good solid fast read, but not very memorable. Plenty of action, but not much plot!

4.0 out of 5 stars More action in this one!, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another great set of books by Doug Dandridge. I do enjoy the Donut universe, and it's good to see where it all came from.

This one actually had some action in it, compared to the first book of the Exodus trilogy, however it's still relatively slow paced. This isn't a bad thing however, and it's a really enjoyable read. I look forward to the third one!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great sequel, 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second book in the Redemption Trilogy (I prefer calling it the Last Praetorian series for some reason in my head). It's a great read, with not too much hard sci fi, and a damaged but powerful main protaganist.

The sequel focuses on what happens after Radec returns from the grave, and continue at full pace from there. Then there is his relationships between the two women in his life - hard arsed Miranda always gets left out it seems, however she's definitely not as hardy as she was in the first book. All in all, a very good book, and I look forward to the next one.
