Read any good Sci-Fi lately? Or maybe some not so good Sci-Fi? Post your reviews here for fellow Sci-Fi lovers.

Emma Faragher | 5 comments This is my latest review. Great story full of laughs despite a slightly darker theme. YA (which I didn't really comprehend until the end, silly me)

Crux by John Shepard
A short read but well worth it if you like Sci-fi mixed with romance.

The 100 (The Hundred, #1) by Kass Morgan

'Bellamy opened his eyes. He was being ridiculous, he knew. The rain was only water, and there was no such thing as a clean start. That was the thing about secrets-you had to carry them with you forever, no matter what the cost.'

My review of INTERVENTION from a few years ago. I'm posting it here now because the sequel is coming out soon. I haven't read a smart sci-med/techno thriller like this since before Michael Chrichton died. By Goodreads author W.R.R. Munro.

From my review: "A brilliant character comes up with a secret solution to save the species. He wants his equally brilliant half brother to help him achieve it. The solution is something I've often wondered about and probably many of you have, too. So we get to share in the dilemma: if you were the half brother, what would you do?"

It's a great début Sci-Fi novel from Keith Stevenson, well worth the read!

Devi Nair (views_she_writes) Legacy: The Murefre Saga (book 1) Legacy: The Murefre Saga by B.R. Jensen

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


Check the complete review at
Legacy: The Murefre Saga (book 1)


Legacy is a sci-fi, into the future kind of book. Unfortunately it is too much into the future for my liking. The story is set in a world where human beings are sorted into three categories: Murefre, human beings and Tonug Gal

For those who like sci fi stories set far into the future, this will be an interesting read. The setting and description are detailed and proper. There are first person narration from literally all the characters. There is heart break, treachery, fights, loyalty, everything.

Michelle Thurston | 5 comments The Planet Beyond Mars I recently read this book. It kept me interested the whole time. It makes you wonder with all of the news lately if there is other forms of life out there. Worth the read if you like books about space and adventure.

V.P. Rigel (vprigel) | 3 comments Hey there awesome readers, reviewers & friends!

I am actively looking for reviewers for my book.

Here is a short description of the book, and amazon link.

The book is in Kindle Unlimited. If you are not in KU email me at vprigel@gmail.com for a copy.

"Meet StarJack, a charming space freelancer and his colder-then-ice female android companion, Xila.

All StarJack and Xila wanted was to grab some fast credits.

So they picked up a local intergalactic kiosk bounty.

But would have thought that a local thug could be such high valued target across the galaxy?

If you like science fiction, space opera and action & adventure join StarJack and Xila in an intergalactic action packed space opera adventure serial full of exotic characters, twists, and locations."

Cheers,
VPR

Vidal D'costa | 5 comments Hi, everyone on here! I'm Vidal D'costa, a new self published author and currently looking for reviews on my scifi duology which involves geneetic engineering and time travel, since I currently have 0 reviews. The books are 'It's Sciency Wiency stuff!' and 'It's Timey Wimey nonsense!' (forgive the titles, I'm a Doctor Who fan). If interested, please do contact me here for copies to read and review: dreamydepp.vd@gmail.com

They are also available on Amazon for Kindle and Smashwords or check the links on my Goodreads profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=dp_bylin...

You may choose to read and review even one of the books or both if time permits. Anyway, Thanks and happy reading! Hope to hear from a reviewer soon.

message 47: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie Grohol (bookfan5555) | 2 comments I am currently reading a thought provoking book called One Second After by William R. Forstchen. It is basically a possible future where a nuclear bomb goes off in the atmosphere, creating a EMP, which destroys the electric grid of the whole country. The area where this book takes place is a small mountain town in North Carolina and they have to figure out how to survive without all the technology and amenities that we all are so used to. It makes you think of what would happen if it actually happened and was not a science fiction book? Could we survive? Do we know how to survive? A lot of questions.

William Sharp (sandiferhands) | 5 comments Hi everyone! I need reviews on one of my my SF short stories, please! It is FREE for download from Amazon this weekend May 11-12, 2019. Please be sure to copy your review from here to my Amazon book page. Thank you! William Sharp

THE CHRISTMAS MESSAGE
Ah, Christmas time! “Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow!” The writer of that line had no idea how prescient he was. The “season to be jolly” is turned on its head in this wicked story of Howard Sheldon, a middle-aged suburbanite who just wanted to decorate his house. Add a pinch of the law of unintended consequences, a dash of a message gone awry, and you have the perfect ingredients for a sugar-plum disaster.

Bryan Deminico | 6 comments I have one more free e-book code left - fans of Bond, Star Trek, and add a dash of Blade Runner will enjoy Agent Jonah's debut mission entitled Retrospect. I am at bryancdeminico@gmail.com

A novus hit squad is chasing you, and they are getting closer...

In the year 3421, human, novus, and alien races coexist through political strife perpetuated by daily United Planetary Congress interactions, the foundation of political theater. An encrypted code, capable of crippling a newly developed artificial earth planet, is stolen from an atmospheric control outpost orbiting Atlas.

Agent Jonah, Galactic Interpol Society top-priority agent, must immerse himself within the violent shadows surrounding his new mission as he enters the Revised Washington District. A novus crime lord leading a reputable novus terrorist organization lends aid to a powerful political figure pulling the strings. To further complicate Jonah's investigation, a rogue galactic agent bites at his heels every step of the way.

Follow Agent Jonah through vivid action sequences and futuristic locales to find out if he can overcome all obstacles and save Atlas from an evil politician's plot for power dominance in the galaxy.

Army combat veteran Bryan DeMinico gives readers a Sci-Fi world full of hi-tech spy activities, sleek technologies, socio-political interactions spanning across two earth planets, mix in a new humanoid race, colonized space worlds, and add a dash of discovered aliens on Planet Amephirous.

★★★★★ "In a genre that is fast becoming saturated, Retrospect by Bryan Deminico is a great achievement, a deftly written sci fi novel with futuristic themes...Retrospect will please fans of sci-fi." - Readers' Favorite
