Memory’s Legion by James S.A. Corey

Pretty high standard throughout all the short stories/novella’s with a couple of great ones thrown in. Drive: A story based on how the Epstein Drive was invented which is core to the setup of the Expanse series. Interesting to see a very early Mars and how the relationship with Earth was put in place for …

Leviathan Falls by James S.A. Corey

Man, what a ride. Great book, amazing series. So this is more of a review of the series than this final book in particular. It has been some adventure. The first book is almost a standalone, with Miller’s chapters feeling completely different than the rest of the series. Then we have the duology of the …

Tiamat’s Wrath by James S.A. Corey

Started a bit slow but ramped up to an amazing end. The Laconians are fully in charge. The crew of the Rocinante are split up; Jim’s captive with the Laconians, Amos is trying to rescue him, Bobby and Naomi are both leading the resistance but in very different ways, and Alex is Bobby’s pilot but …

Persepolis Rising by James S.A. Corey

Wasn’t totally sure what to expect from this last series within a series with the big time jump. However I should have known, it was a great read from start to finish. There’s been thirty year’s of relative peace since the fall of the Free Navy. The Space Guild controls the slow zone and humanity …

Stories of your Life and Others by Ted Chiang

A bit of a mixed bag but definitely interesting. Tower of Babylon: Very strange, more Fantasy than Science Fiction but I found it intriguing. Understand: I really liked this. The first thing I did was check whether the movie Lucy is based on it but I don’t think it is. What happens if you gain …

The Chrysalids by John Wyndham

It started slow but I got hooked quick enough after that. Set in the future after a Nuclear Holocaust, the story follows the early life of David as he realises that he and some others are ‘different’ than the people around him and how that puts him in conflict with his family and his town …

The Employees by Olga Ravn

This was really not my style of book. The basic premise is that of a series of employee interviews after an incident aboard a spaceship set sometime in the next century. You gradually learn that there are human and humanoid interviews though it can be very difficult to tell the difference in some cases. Honestly …

Star Wars: Victory’s Price by Alexander Freed

Great end to the series. I won’t go into too much details here for fear of spoilers but we’ve come to the endgame and events are setting up for the Battle of Jakku and end of the Empire. We know how it plays out, kind of, and most of our protagonists know it too. The …

Star Wars: Shadow Fall by Alexander Freed

Dragged a bit in places but definitely continued with the premise of the first book (in a good way). Set not too longer after the events of the first book, Alphabet Squadron are now in proper fighting shape and working as a team. The New Republic is engaged with Imperial forces over the planet of …

Remote Control by Nnedi Okorafor

More of a fairytale than a science fiction book but entertaining. Set in Ghana in the near future, it tells the story of Sankofa who gains mysterious powers that can cause massive destruction and death. We find out how she came to get the powers and her wanderings around Ghana, first trying to find a …
