The Mortality Experiment is classic Halo Scot. It’s dark, its brutal, it pulls at the heartstrings, and every single character has at least one demon haunting them.
As far as sequels go, this one was well done. I liked it better than the first book!
I really liked the premise of this book and how both the Corporis and Illuminatos gifts were the product of human evolution. Beyond the science, the future world described in The Drift was technologically advanced and described in such a way that it felt not only plausible, but possible.
This book is fresh, inventive, quirky, instinctive, and witty. Set in a genre-bending world – think dystopian sci-fi, steampunk, weird west, with shades of grimdark political court intrigue – filled with some of the most unique and downright strange ideas I’ve read. Truly creative.
World Running Down is a post-apocalyptic meet cute that doesn’t shy away from asking the big questions. The characters are expertly written and it’s, dare I say, impossible not to empathize with their struggles and cheer on their victories. What I think I love best about it though is the pervading sense of hope throughout; World Running Down is about good people doing their best to survive in a world that’s just trying to get by, by acting with love and compassion. That’s powerful.
The Chasm was an excellent sequel to The Calling. I recommend both books for fans of adventure-driven science fiction with an array of very interesting characters.
If you’re in the mood for some mind-bending sci-fi/horror and/or are a fan of Chuck Palahniuk, this is the collection for you. It will keep you on your toes and challenge your imagination in the best way possible.
The Calling is not your typical YA science fiction story, and there was a lot to this world beyond the ice age and the sickness, but the characters and the conflict between them were what really drew me in.
This was a very interesting read, and from my perspective as a microbiologist, well-researched. I’m interested to see where book 2 will take the story.
Aestus: The Colony was on par with the first book (The City), in terms of storytelling and writing quality.
This was a great sequel and conclusion to the Aestus series.
Third Front is a fantastic conclusion to this trilogy, leaving some doors ajar which could mean a return for Dalí and her found family in future missions… I would read more from this universe and its characters in a heartbeat.
Aestus has a cinematic feel to many of its scenes, which I loved. Coupled with the pacing and the clean writing style, it made for a great read.
