I read Silver by Rob Rowntree and I thought it was great. Rowntree's voice comes thru like a real pro and you feel like you're reading someone who really knows his craft. So I went back for more and got Unbound Brothers.

I was expecting to hear that same smooth voice, and I did, but not all the time. The really odd thing about reading this book was that much of the time you know that you're reading the work of a brilliant writer; someone who carves out a story and gives it incredible depth. Cert

Picked up because of a Sword and Laser post I gave this book a chance and was intrigued by many of the concepts of technology and how space travel was explained. Parts of this story reminded me of a Lovecraft-like suspense and horror that was more about what you didn't see rather than what you and the characters did see. All in all, I enjoyed the story and was left wanting more from things that went unresolved.

Intriguing story with some original Science and Tech angles.


Space exploration’s worst fears realized. This book is a mix of space exploration and mild, thought-provoking horror.
I found this book on Goodreads while reading forums and doing some feedback and thought I’d give it a shot. I’m glad I did. I’ve spent a week trying to write a review that adequately defines this wonderful new book I just read. I am failing miserably. I won’t describe the storyline or anything here, because others can do
