No one in the lunar station was safe from her wrath, not even the fresh, young team that had just arrived from Earth to erect the first lunar space elevator. When completed, the space elevator was destined to be one of the great engineering projects of all time. ...more

This is a very interesting read. The action starts from the first page and doesn't let go.

Read full review in the 2018 September issue of InD'tale Magazine.

There are a number of stand out elements in this novel that make it well worth a read. These include the basic premise, the attention to scientific detail and explanations, and the witty repartee between the characters. All of these were very well done, and definitely hooked me on the story.

There are also a couple of areas where I feel the story could have been improved:

The pace of the story ground to a halt with all the lectures on scientific concepts. (Really and truly, the reader doesn't need

Moon Beam is a story of one woman bent on revenge and her subsequent slip into madness as she vows to kill the company she feels is responsible for the accident that paralyzed her first husband. What makes the plot unique is the lunar habitat they are all currently living on, the inherent dangers and difficulties of life on the moon and the team that has just arrived to build the first lunar space elevator.
I didn’t love Moon Beam, nor did I hate it. While the bare bones of the story were good en

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads and am grateful for the opportunity.

Overall, the book was interesting and well-written. I just for some reason found the pace to be kind of dull at times. It didn't help that you took away the sense of mystery early on when it became clear that Ouida was out to destroy the moon colony.

Another issue I had was the occasionally awkward grammar. For instance, at one point Santini asks, "You want I should lie?" I think it could be better phrased as "

Moon Beam by Steven Burgauer is a must read for anyone wanting to escape for a bit into an exciting world with action and suspense at every turn. This book should be on everyone’s “Must Read” List!

I received this copy from the publisher. This is my voluntary review.

When people live on the moon, life can get really interesting. Well, it will be a while before we can live on the moon and it will take a while to get into this book.

It was very slow to start, but once there, it is a page-turner. I wish it didn’t take so long. It was an excellent idea for a book, but it lacked in the telling of it.

Overall, I have to say it I liked it, but it could have been better; 2.5 (3) stars at most.
