A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine

This was most definitely something different, unusual and enjoyable. Mahit has been chosen as ambassador for her people, Lsel Station, to the Teixcalaan Empire after the previous ambassador Yskandr has gone missing. There she is thrown into the intrigue of the imperial court with her only potential ally being her liaison Three Seagrass. Things are …

Star Wars: Battlefront: Twilight Company by Alexander Freed

Definitely one of the more interesting tones of a Star Wars book that I’ve read so far. This is the story of Namir, a sergeant in the Rebellion’s Twilight Company. We follow him and the company as the rebellion are getting pushed back after the events of A New Hope. It starts shortly before Empire …

Star Wars: Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil by Drew Karpyshyn

It was obvious where the series was going with the Rule of Two and all but it was still well done and threw up a few unexpected developments. This book is set another ten years after the first book, with Bane and Zannah still in the same master/apprentice relationship, though splits are beginning to show. …

Star Wars: Darth Bane: Rule of Two by Drew Karpyshyn

So this starts off immediately after the events of the first book, at least for the first third, then there is a ten year time jump. Bane has his apprentice and is starting his new philosophy of the ‘Rule of Two’ for the Sith going forward. He has planted enough seeds that the Jedi think …

Star Wars: Darth Bane: Path of Destruction by Drew Karpyshyn

So this is the first part of a trilogy of books set around one thousand years before the main Star Wars timeline. It follows the story of Dessel, born and raised a miner in a world where the workers are basically indentured slaves to a corporation. It is on the fringes of the Republic and …

Demon in White by Christopher Ruocchio

This is quickly becoming one of my favourite series. Like the previous book, there’s a big jump in years between this one and the last one, with the reputation of Hadrian and his crew has grown even stronger in the years. After the events of the last book, as well as others in the intervening …

Howling Dark by Christopher Ruocchio

So it’s been around fifty years in universe since the last book, though Hadrian is only around fifteen years older due to the having to go into the equivalent of cryogenic freezing while travelling between planets. His new mercenary ‘company’ have been building up their reputation over the years, all in the search for Vorgossos. …

Empire of Silence by Christopher Ruocchio

After initially disliking it a bit at the start I ended up really enjoying it. Out main protagonist and only POV is Hadrian Marlowe, the first son of a ruler of a planet. The planet is one of thousands, if not more, that is part of the Sollan Empire which originated on our earth but …

Dune by Frank Herbert

Wow that was a great book. Set in the far future humanity is living on many worlds with an almost feudal ruling system. One family, the Atreides have recently been awarded the governing of Arrakis, a desert planet where spice comes from. Spice is a drug that is incredibly valuable and is used in space …

Star Wars: Resistance Reborn by Rebecca Roanhorse

Starting off pretty much where The Last Jedi left us, this story tells how Leia and the remnants of the Resistance started to get back on to their feet. After their crushing defeat at the hands of the First Order the Resistance are almost done for. They have a handful of people on the Falcon …
