Reviews 5 ★½

I’ve been quite excited about Tandem – parallel worlds, a mysterious boy, what’s not to like? However, I feel like I’ve been duped with this book. I don’t think it satisfied many of my expectations, although I did enjoy the differences between our universe and that of Aurora. I’m hoping…

I wish the Lux novels were about Dawson. It’s not that I don’t like Daemon … well actually, I don’t like him much at all … but I wish authors and publishers weren’t so eager to always shove tortured, rebellious, mysterious bad boys in our faces. I’d much rather read about…

This is one of the best science fiction books I’ve read this year – full of action and humans doing amazing things and plot twists. Lexicon is set in our world today, except that a catastrophic event has killed everyone in Broken Hill. The book follows two protagonists – Wil,…
