Review

While the first Orbs book was about survival, the theme running through Orbs II: Stranded is ‘desperation’. The odds are stacked high against the human race and the survivors at Cheyenne Mountain. In fact, one has to question if the human race has any hope of survival at all. The ‘Organics’ aliens continue to rob Earth of all its water and kill any living thing they can find. Their numbers seem endless, while the number of humans remaining alive continues to dwindle. In the face of such odds against survival, many characters are led to desperate acts and last-resort choices.

This a collection of science fiction stories by various authors.

Review

Spark Rising is a post-apocalyptic Earth, dystopian tale with a few unique elements that made for a great story. Well written, well edited and all around an enjoyable read, the book has many aspects that made me love it. I think this book would be a good read for any fan of science fiction, dystopian, post-apocalyptic or science fiction romance stories, so it has a wide range of appeal. There were only a few, mostly minor, issues that I ran into which kept me, personally, from reaching the coveted ‘OMG More!’ moment.

Review

Oh my feels! I fell in love with this series when I came across In The Devil’s Nebula on NetGalley. I’ve since snatched up all the books published so far in this series. So far, I have yet to read one I didn’t love. On A Rogue Planet was no exception. It may be my favorite so far.

Science Fiction Romance Readers Group

SciFiRomanceGroup

There is a new Facebook group for fans and readers of Science Fiction Romance (SFR). This group is run by both readers and authors of SFR. We welcome everyone to join, post reviews, share opinions on books, movies and shows related to SFR / romance in science fiction.

It’s a no-promo zone, so you won’t see a bunch of ‘buy my book’ links from authors. We do allow authors to post blog-post links, excerpts, giveaways and contests, but these will be limited. We will also be running monthly giveways and having Facebook book parties, and even a group book-of-the-month reading club in the near future.

So, come join us and share what you’re reading!
