Book Review: One Day All This Will Be Yours by Adrian Tchaikovsky

You all are probably aware that Adrian Tchaikovsky is one of my absolute favourite science fiction authors. I've only encountered one of his sci-fi novellas, Walking to Aldebaran, and absolutely loved it. So when I found out that he was coming out with a new one, I had to get my hands on it. One Day All This Will Be Yours is a darkly funny book that tackles the ethics of time travel and how far you'll go to stop humanity from breaking the world (again).

Book Review: The Doors of Eden by Adrian Tchaikovsky

A new book from Adrian Tchaikovsky, one of my favourite authors, is always an exciting event. The Doors of Eden was a book that immediately caught my attention with its stunning cover and intriguing concept. I had sky-high expectations for this book, and I am so pleased to say thatthey were absolutely met! The Doors of Eden is an incredibly accessible, fun, and thought-provoking science fiction story with Tchaikovsky's signature twist.

Book Review: Redemption’s Blade by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Flash Reviews: Books That Were Too Good to Review

Occasionally, book bloggers come across a book that’s just too good to review.  How could we possibly put into words how much we loved this plot, those characters?  Can't we just flail wildly instead?  I rarely struggle with reviewing books, but I’ve encountered two this past year that have just blown my mind.  So instead of a full review, here are two five-star flash reviews of books that are too good to review.  Honestly, they’ll probably just be me ranting about how great these two books are.  Seriously.  Apologies for the below rating systems.

Book Review: Guns of the Dawn by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Flintlock fantasy is a subgenre that I’m incredibly unfamiliar with.  You can imagine how pleased I was when my fantasy book club picked Guns of the Dawn by Adrian Tchaikovsky as our May read.  This ended up being a great book to discuss because there was so much to unpack with the writing, but that’s not necessarily a good thing in terms of the actual book.
