Review: Shattered Empire (Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens) by Greg Rucka

One of my biggest pet peeves about most war movies is how the characters celebrate at the end of a big battle as if everything is going to be easy from there on out. This graphic novel shows how the opposite is the case and does an excellent job of leading into how the remnantsContinue reading “Review: Shattered Empire (Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens) by Greg Rucka”

Review: Valhalla (Stargate SG-1 #14) by Tim Waggoner

I enjoyed this book more than I otherwise might have, reading it so soon on the heels of watching Thor: Ragnarok in theaters. Any Stargate reading for me is a visit to a world I love, and this was a solid, though not necessarily memorable, entry into the media tie-in offerings for this world. OneContinue reading “Review: Valhalla (Stargate SG-1 #14) by Tim Waggoner”

Review: Patterns of Interference (Star Trek Enterprise: Rise of the Federation #5) by Christopher L. Bennett

Obvious benefits of a media tie-in novel are the lack of production value constraints. This means authors are free to make use of a vast array of characters and create new planets beyond the typical constrictions of special effects. Bennett has capitalized on these abilities to great extent, especially writing a familiar cast of charactersContinue reading “Review: Patterns of Interference (Star Trek Enterprise: Rise of the Federation #5) by Christopher L.

Review: Points of Origin (SG-1/SGA Travelers’ Tales #2) edited by Sally Malcolm

Favorite story: “Precognition” by Jo Graham touches on the after-effects of one of my favorite episodes of Stargate SG-1, when our heroes travel back in time and are aided by a younger George Hammond. It was lovely to see his progression through the years, taking us to the man we know and love who guidedContinue reading “Review: Points of Origin (SG-1/SGA Travelers’ Tales #2) edited by Sally Malcolm”

Review: Heart of the Dragon (Supernatural #4) by Keith R.A. DeCandido

I usually avoid reading other reviews of books before writing my own, but for some reason I scrolled down when getting the links for this book. While it looks like the majority of the ratings are positive, the top few reviews that showed up on Goodreads absolutely trashed this book, which is unfortunate. You mightContinue reading “Review: Heart of the Dragon (Supernatural #4) by Keith R.A. DeCandido”

Review: BONE KEY (Supernatural #3) by Keith R.A. DeCandido

My quest to become a genuine Keith R.A. DeCandido fangirl continues today with his second Supernatural media tie-in novel. I enjoyed this one a lot more than his first, Nevermore, for a variety of reasons. 

Review: NEVERMORE (Supernatural #1) by Keith R.A. DeCandido

There are four of us in a group of some of my best friends, and we’re all fans of the show Supernatural (though some of us are more caught up than others, ahem). Along the way, we even acquired nicknames from the main characters, and it should surprise none of you that I’m Sam. So whenContinue reading “Review: NEVERMORE (Supernatural #1) by Keith R.A. DeCandido”

Review: LIVE BY THE CODE (Star Trek Enterprise: Rise of the Federation #4) by Christopher L. Bennett

DISCLAIMER: I received this book as a freebie from the publisher at Cleveland ConCoction 2016, where Bennett was the author guest of honor. Though book titles should always have something to do with the contents of the book, I will always appreciate a book title that is also a good pun. Live by the Code canContinue reading “Review: LIVE BY THE CODE (Star Trek Enterprise: Rise of the Federation #4) by Christopher L. Bennett”

Review: Uncertain Logic (Star Trek Enterprise: Rise of the Federation #3) by Christopher L. Bennett

  DISCLAIMER: I received this book as a freebie from the publisher at Cleveland ConCoction 2016, where Bennett was the author guest of honor. My favorite aspect of this novel was the fact that Bennett allows a Starfleet ship to make a major mistake. This series might be about the ascension of the Federation to aContinue reading “Review: Uncertain Logic (Star Trek Enterprise: Rise of the Federation #3) by Christopher L. Bennett”

Review: A CHOICE OF FUTURES (Star Trek Enterprise: Rise of the Federation #1) by Christopher L. Bennett

Though Star Trek Enterprise is not my favorite of the television series, I found myself easily sucked into these tales that follow the on-screen adventures. The first four books made for great vacation reading, and I anxiously waited for my turn to read them since my husband had laid dibs first. (Star Trek Enterprise isContinue reading “Review: A CHOICE OF FUTURES (Star Trek Enterprise: Rise of the Federation #1) by Christopher L. Bennett”
