Blog Tour: Lila Shortcuts by Sarah Alderson – Interview

October 13, 2013 Blog Tour 0

Hey guys! Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Alex Wakeman as part of the blog tour for the Lila Shortcuts by Sarah Alderson. There's also an opportunity to win copies of Hunting Lila, Losing Lila and The Sound! Here's a little bit about this collection of short stories before we start: 1. You used to hunt people like Lila and Jack. How did finding out about their powers change your perspective on the situation? I guess you know what my reaction was. It took a while to process. There's this idea you've believed in your whole life stupidly without...

Jaran by Kate Elliott

Jaran by Kate Elliott

August 16, 2013 Reviews 1

My reluctance to re-read blurbs before beginning a book pays off again! I had no idea what to expect from Jaran, except that I love Kate Elliott’s writing and was looking forward to reading some science fiction by her (having previously only read the Crossroads books). Jaran begins slowly, a…

iD: The Second Machine Dynasty by Madeline Ashby

July 14, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★

Taking up close to where vN left off, iD follows Javier’s journey to set things right after everything goes wrong on Amy’s island. Although I liked the book well enough, I feel that some of the magic was missing, and I’m not convinced that Javier is as compelling a protagonist…

The Sparrow by Jason Mott

July 10, 2013 Reviews 0

I don’t know if I enjoyed The Sparrow as much as The First – I think it deals with weightier issues, and in such a short book, it feels disjointed and stilted. Whereas The First is about the very first person who comes back from the dead, The Sparrow deals…

And All the Stars by Andrea K. Höst

And All the Stars by Andrea K. Höst

December 5, 2012 Reviews 3 ★★★★★

Madeline Cost wakes up buried under concrete after the collapse of a train station (St. James for those who know). Mysterious spires have risen up out of the earth in 150 of the world’s largest cities, spewing out a purplish-white dust that changes those who come into contact with it….
