In joining this review group you have agreed to review the novels assigned to you on a two month schedule. This group is now in the review phase and is no longer open for sign up.

This is the Science Fiction/Fantasy review group which includes any work that contains elements of both genres. As with other review groups, you will be expected to read and give an honest review of the books assigned to you. Assignments will be made after the group sign-up has filled.

Participants are expected to post reviews to Goodreads. If the review is positive (three stars or higher on Amazon), the review should be posted to Amazon (US and UK) as well, if the book is available there. This makes having accounts with both Goodreads and Amazon.com a requirement.

If a reviewer and the author agree that the review should not be posted to Goodreads due to quality issues, the reviewer is relieved of the requirement of posting the review. If this occurs in the first round, the second reviewer is relieved of the requirement to read and review the book. This is entirely at the discretion of the reviewer and is not intended in any way to manipulate the rating of any book.

Contact the authors you are scheduled to review to arrange to receive a review copy of their work.

Please post to this topic, both when you receive review copies and when you post the reviews.

If you are going to be late with your review, either post to this topic as soon as possible or message the author and the moderator.

If your book has not been reviewed by the deadline for either round, contact the review group moderator. This is necessary to make certain that the review process is fair for everyone.

Note that any participant who makes no effort to fulfill his or her commitment to this group will have all reviews of his or her work resulting from this group deleted and his or her membership in the Genre Specific Review Group will be terminated.

Sanna Hines | 173 comments Can I add Shining Ones: Legacy of the Sidhe? It's mythic fantasy with just a touch of science. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...


message 6: by K.T. (new)

K.T. Munson | 276 comments Frost Burn is a fantasy novel that was coauthored. It explores two very different cultures that must work together or face death. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Can this be on the list?

Hi, I'm not sure my book, which just became available today, July 15, will fit into the above categories. It entails dark fantasy and esoteric science. How's that? Thank you for your consideration. Frank Julius Palumbo

K.T. Munson | 276 comments I will not be posted a review for C. Esther - Oasis in the Clouds as it would have been less than 2 stars.
