From the opening sentence when professor of particle physics Dr. Henry Bowman declares quite brazenly ‘Einstein was wrong’ my imagination captured. It’s not every day a scientist can say that about the godfather of modern physics. During his momentous demonstration proving information does indeed travel faster than the speed of light Dr. Bowman keels over and expires in his triumphal moment. Five years later Dr. Joshua Andrews, former student assistant to Dr. Bowman is still trying to recreate Bowman’s Spookyon technology without success. When he finally succeeds in his experiment the face of science and the world is about to change forever because with Spookyon technology the human race can now communicate across galaxies in a matter of moments. And when you talk someone is bound to answer.
This is by far one of the best alien sci-fi novels I’ve read so far. Kishore Tipirneni takes us on a wild ride based on a scientific fact. I really loved the way I found myself bamboozled by the twist this story takes using said science. New Eden is a story of discovery, romance, and religion. The two main characters Josh and Rachel are agnostic and Christian. In another novel, they would have been at each other's throats trying to prove each other wrong but the author deals with their differences in a holistic manner that forces the reader to think hard on their own beliefs. Fans of the Predator/Alien franchise where earth learns that they are creations of a faraway race of aliens who may or may not be benevolent will love this series. I can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out. ...more

Emmy’s life is brought cA Bargain In Silver by Josie Jaffrey is a post apocalyptic paranormal romance and the first book in the Solis Invicti series. Emmy’s life is brought crushing down on the night the Weepers descend on the human race and almost consume the entire world. If not for the vampire race who call themselves the silver humanity would have been wiped out completely. Even though she owes the silver leaders her life Emmy is unwilling to surrender her freedom. Torn between two distinctly different silvers her new found attachments may fracture the fragile peace between man and silver. Can there truly be peace when one race considers themselves superior and the others little more than slaves.
Josie Jaffrey has created a realistic picture of post apocalyptic London that is chilling and yet full of hope. I loved Emmy who is everything a survivor should be. She fought for her freedom and used her mind to compromise when she knew she wouldn’t win otherwise. This story is not just romance but also focuses on the lives of other people who’ve lost loved ones and how far people are willing to go to survive. It has the kind of characters that made The Walking Dead such a hit tv series. And the love triangle developing between Emmy and her two silver alpha males is just so exciting. I love the anti-hero type heroes in this book a lot. Will she end up with Sol or his love struck Secundus? Not to mention the danger Emmy faces from the enemies she has made. ...more
