These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

Beautiful, lyrical, and down-right heart-breaking, These Broken Stars grabs you and won't let go. My advice: don't pick it up as a quick read before bed-time. You, like me, will still be reading at 3am, uncaring that 9am Monday is fast approaching and you have to go to work.

Taking up soon after Planesrunner, Be My Enemy follows Everett Singh as he jumps across parallel universes to rescue his father, with the help of the crew of the airship Everness. I really enjoyed this novel and feel it’s even better than the first in terms of action and world-building….

Vortex by S. J. Kincaid

Vortex by S. J. Kincaid

Reviews 0

Although high in action and drama, Vortex failed to deliver as far as the main protagonist went. I liked some aspects of the novel, such as the plot and the scientific background, but Tom the teenaged delinquent and his equally vapid friends soon left me grumbling and grinding my teeth….
