By now you all know how much I absolutely love Emma Newman’s Planetfall books, so there’s no surprise that I was eagerly awaiting, and ultimately ended up loving, this book. The first sequel in the Planetfall series, Atlas Alone picks up six months after the events of After Atlas and deals with the consequences of those events in deep, thought-provoking, and totally horrifying way that only Emma Newman can achieve.
I absolutely love Adrian Tchaikovsky’s Children of Time and was curious to see what his other science fiction books were like. Walking to Aldebaran is the perfect way to sample his writing style -- clocking in at right around 140 pages, it’s a short but effective story of an astronaut lost in space.
I’m always on the lookout for some good science fiction, and The Tesla Legacy caught my eye. Not only did I meet the author at YALC last year, it’s a YA sci-fi novel set in a modern high school that sounded so much fun. I whipped through this book incredibly quickly -- it’s a perfect read-it-in-a-day book.
I’ve been reading so much fantasy lately and I’ve had a craving for some great sci-fi. Enter This Splintered Silence -- a book I had heard nothing about until I had the opportunity to request a copy. I’m so glad I took a chance on this novel -- it is a fast paced sci-if thriller that will delight fans of Lauren James’ The Loneliest Girl in the Universe.
Brandon Sanderson is an author I trust completely. I will buy every single one of his books because I know I will like them. When I heard that he was writing his very first science fiction novel, I was so incredibly excited. My expectations for this novel were sky high (heh) and I have to say that Spensa and the gang absolutely smashed those expectations.
Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Steven Erikson's newest book, Rejoice, a Knife to the Heart. This thrilling sci-fi novel is out in UK stores today! I'm so pleased to be able to share an extract from the book on publication day -- take a peek below.
When I requested a copy of Planetfall, I assumed I was going to get a standard ‘humans colonize a planet, things go wrong’ science fiction book -- which is great, don't get me wrong. However, Planetfall turned out to be one of the most unexpected, brilliant, and compelling sci-fi books I’ve ever read.
