Dragon's Teeth by Suzanne Van Rooyen, is a futuristic scifi that the author describes as a "cyberpunk/dystopian noir". I have to say that it is not my usual read, but I really enjoyed this and would recommend it without hesitation to scifi fans and anyone else for that matter.

The novel is set in a dystopian future, where people flock to "polycarbonate bubble" suburbias like New Arcadia, while the atmosphere undergoes a "Sky Rejuvenation Program". The story focuses on the central character of Cyr

Update: Finished reading! Time to review now

Dragon’s teeth gave me the goose bumps.

I loved reading it!

It made me uncomfortable, but kept me enthralled, I don’t think I’ve enjoyed reading the dystopian genre so much since 1984 and Brave New world.

Suzanne Van Rooyen has a wonderful style of storytelli

I am general not much of a Science fiction reader, tending more towards the paranormal, romance and erotica stories when I am in the mood for a good read, so I jumped into this one a bit blind, as they say.

I have to say, despite not really getting into the story or the genre as a whole, I did enjoy the read. The author did a great job of pulling me into the story unfolding and after a few chapters, I was able to really relax into the story being presented. I admit to never really identifying wi

Before I start my review, I want to point out what literally my face looked like when I was reading the last pages of the book.

Wait. What. Just. Happened.
*mind blown*

Dragon’s Teeth is a perfect testimony as to why I sometimes venture into the more “Adult” side of fiction – although there’s m

This book is set up in three parts with several POV's. The beginning was a slow start. I wasn't really connecting with the beginning characters. When I hit the back story, I was absolutely hooked. I found myself so engrossed that I had trouble putting my kindle down for the night. My heart literally was pumping so hard that I really couldn't wait until the next morning to start up again.

Cyrus is a detective that was hired by Benji wanting to know more about his parents. He was adopted and knew t

What do you get when you combine a dystopian setting with genetically enhanced soldiers, drug-trafficking and a cynical detective? Dragon's Teeth. Although the title of Suzanne Van Rooyen's debut novel may incite images of characters from a fantasy book, there are neither dragons nor elves between the pages. Instead, we are launched into a world of robots and synthetic food, where having imperfect genetics is a crime, plastic surgery is the norm and no one remembers what the sun feels like on th ...more
The book consist of three parts and I really liked the middle one but if I hadn't read Obscura burning and loved it I don't know if I'd pushed through the first part. It was very stylish noir piece but I couldn't get any feel to the protagonist. I think the structure was a bit problematic. It was a interesting book but I felt it didn't quite reached the heights it could have.

I'm a queer author with a penchant for the dark and strange. I primarily write SFF but enjoy literary writing as well.

When not writing, I teach music at an international school, climb, eat anything involving peanut butter, and serve the whims of my shiba inu.
