I found this book a bit of a mixed bag. The premise of a new world appearing on the other side of our solar system was excellent. The final showdown was also well executed. However, the middle third of the book was more than a little stodgy. I found ...more

The Fear In Her Eyes by Grant McKenzie
Rate this book
Clear rating
I am a fan of Grant McKenzie, but authors are judged against their previous books, and in my opinion, this isn't one of his best. Ian Quinn learns that somebody paid the man who killed his daughter in a road accident. As with the author's other work, ...more

The Omega Strain by Steve P. Vincent
Rate this book
Clear rating
Mitch Herron is a hitman. He kills without compunction and keeps a tally. As the main protagonist, I found him very hard to like. Whilst well told, the book is full of cliches. Not really one for me.

The plot is about Kady and Ezra, a young couple living on an illegal colony when their settlement is attacked by a corporation. The story is told through reports and logs. For the most part this works well, but I am removing a star because the format ...more
