This is one of these books that I though was okay to read but in reality is rather forgettable. Continue reading Slave Trade – Okay read.
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.
I found this book quite good. Very good actually. It is not some vanilla science fiction story dressed up as a crime mystery. It is a good old-fashioned crime mystery that happens to transpire in the future and a good one at that. Continue reading Trouble Walked In – Very good crime/mystery novel in a science fiction setting.
This was weird reading. I am almost ashamed to say that I found these books rather fun to read despite the fact that, in terms of science fiction these are really bad books. At the best books can be called science fantasy and young adult ones at that. Continue reading From Far Beyond books 1 to 4 – Bad but amazingly enough somewhat fun read.
This is still a good book in the Backyard Starship series but it is not the best one. But then that is probably a lot due to my personal preferences. Continue reading Fields of Fire – Good but not the best in the series.
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.
I’m not going to waste much time reviewing this book since the author screwed it up big time for me by nonsensical woke, green preaching. I am really disappointed about this. Continue reading Dishonorable Angels – Ruined by bullshit, uneducated green preaching.
This is the second book in the Opus X series and it is a decent continuation from the first one although I felt that I did indeed like the first one a bit more. Maybe because the novelty factor of the story and the characters had worn off a bit. Continue reading Shattered Truth – Okay read.
I would say it is a solid three star book. Maybe a tad more certainly not a four star one. I am going to read the next one in the series of course so we will see how it goes. Continue reading Obsidian Detective – Interesting Science Fiction / Crime novel.
Overall, this is another good instalment in the series. It as a light, action filled, sometimes hilarious space adventure. A fun and enjoyable read plain and simple. Continue reading Blackest Ocean – Good latest entry in the series.
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
What I liked about the book was the main protagonist, even though she is very young, that it has a solid story, that it is well written and the discovery/adventure type story. Continue reading A Beautiful Friendship – Decent enough YA novel in the Honorverse.
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…
Overall this was a good book. Nice mix of adventure, fun dialogue, crime investigation, story arc progression and action. Continue reading Kingdom Come – Good book in the series.
Having finished the book I cannot say that I was really disappointed but, for me, the book has some issues… Continue reading Sasquatch Moon – Okay 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.
Overall this was a very good, close to great, book and I’m looking forward to the next instalment in the series. Continue reading Endeavour – Another good book in the Ark Royal series.
The book is well written and I really liked the main protagonist but… I really disliked the story. So I said to myself that there is a chance that book two will pick up in a direction that is more palatable to me so I held off on the judgement until I had read it. Well long story short, it did indeed do so. Continue reading The Last Hunter book 1 & 2 – Shaky start but improved in book 2.
