Wow, this went downhill really, really fast. Continue reading Song of Redemption – This one went downhill.
This is the 15th book in the Empire Rising series and it is the third straight five star book in that series. At least for me but then maybe I am a bit biased since this series is my favorite type of reading. Continue reading Into the Breach – Another great book in this series.
Unfortunately I suspected that this installment in The Last Hunter series would not be my cup of tea and I was right. Continue reading The Grand Conspiracy – Not my cup of tea.
This is the 11th installment in the Backyard Starship series and, although there are starting to appear signs that the series should perhaps conclude or change the main story arc to something new and fresh, it is still a quite enjoyable read. Continue reading Echoes of Empire – A few bad points but still a very enjoyable installment in the series.
So since I have some time between the preparations this Sunday it is time for a backlog clean-up so I do not start Christmas with an already large backlog. Continue reading Before Christmas clean-up.

YOU CAN NEVER GO HOME When accusations of piracy and mass murder are laid against his homeworld, Damien Montgomery is sent to resolve the crisis.

I am quite happy that I finally started to read this series despite being hesitant about it as I wrote in my review of the first book in the series. Continue reading Hand of Mars – Another good sci-fi/fantasy book in the series.
Sadly this series did not end well. Continue reading The Forgotten Empire Books 7 & 8 – Sadly this series did not end well.
This is another good book from one of my favorite authors, Christopher G. Nuttall. Continue reading All for All – Good book in the Cast Adrift series.
Most of this book is actually quite good. However, this is nevertheless the first 3 out of 5 star book in this series. The others have all been 4 out of 5 stars. Continue reading Command Authority – Going down the drain of political BS.
This is a great second book in the Dakotan Confederacy series. It went straight to 5 out of 5 stars for me. Continue reading To Stand Defiant – Great second book in the Dakotan Confederacy series.
This is a very good book. Not quite five stars but a solid four. Continue reading Admiral’s Oath – Very good military sci-fi.
Got home from my two week holiday last weekend. Hence the somewhat unusual featured photo of this post. Obviously I was still reading (when not in the water of course) so I have accumulated a bit of a backlog. So here’s some backlog clean-up. Continue reading Holiday catch-up reviews.
I have to say that I quite enjoyed reading these three books, The Riss Gamble, The Riss Proposal and The Riss Survival. Continue reading The Riss Series books 1 to 3 – Not bad.
This book very much continues the story straight from where the first one left of. Unfortunately it is not only the story itself that continues but also the rubbish science and overly simplistic handling of pretty much everything from mutinies to technological advances to military action and diplomatic alliances. Continue reading Phantoms – Too much young adult for my taste.
This book was a disappointment for me. This book is 700+ pages of slow moving overcomplicated plot with so many different characters, each described and talking, talking, talking for hundreds and hundreds of pages, that it is almost unreadable. Continue reading Crown of Slaves – Disappointing, slow and way too long.
It is time for another backlog clean-up. I have been rather busy lately and have not really had time to sit down in front of a PC to write on my blog. That has not stopped me from reading of course which created a bit of a backlog and since I kind of promised myself that I would make an effort to keep up it is time for a backlog clean-up. Continue reading Time for another backlog clean-up.
The blurb for this book sounded cool but maybe I should have been more careful when said blurb tried to profit from the Tolkien name with nonsensical statements like “Tolkien meets Shock and Awe”. This book simply didn’t work for me. Continue reading Forgotten Ruin – This one did not work for me.
Maybe this book actually deserves a bit more than three stars but it is pretty much 100% ground pounder action and I am more of a space battle kind of guy so I think I will stick to three stars. Continue reading Children of Angels – Decent enough ground pounder sci-fi.
Just came back from a week of holidays. Well half holidays and half work actually. Had to go back to Sweden to try and clean up some of the last affairs from my father since he departed this Earth. That part was rather depressing but at least we booked some days in Copenhagen as well. Did the obligatory Tivoli visit and all that which was … Continue reading Post Holiday Clean-up
Still it was a good book overall and I think I’m going to make an effort to finish this series now. Continue reading War on a Thousand Fronts – Good book but…
This is another good book in the Siobhan Dunmoore series and the third great military science fiction I’ve read in a rather short period of time Continue reading A Dark and Dirty War – Another good Siobhan Dunmoore book.
Well written story, likable and competent hero and good action. All the things I like in these kind of books are there. Continue reading Prince War Leader – A solid 5 star book.
This is how military science fiction and space opera should be. Continue reading The Burden of Command – Great military Sci-Fi.
