Blood Lite (2008)

This is a collection of 21 horror stories by various authors. I read this book specifically for the Kelley Armstrong and Jim Butcher stories, both of which I enjoyed. I also read the Charlaine Harris story and have to say that I didn't like it at all. I couldn't believe that it was actually her w...
Clockwork Angels (2012)

Great steampunk fantasy! Somewhat reminiscent of "The Golden Compass" since it mixes mechanized technology and religious ideas. Still trying to wrap my head around what the theme of the novel might be. Obviously the book is an expansive adaptation of sorts from Neil Peart's lyrics, but I'm not su...
Enemies and Allies (2009)

I should start off by saying that I am not much into superhero lore, with the exception of a few Superman and Smallville episodes that come my way. I usually read much "heavier" reading, but let's face it, we all need some recreation now and then. I don't want to come off sounding snobbish by say...

Breezy, page-turning fun with an excellent premise that really should have been a lot better than it was. Kevin J. Anderson is a fantastic writer and his epic space opera "The Last Days of Krypton" was beautifully crafted, creating rich beautiful space-landscapes and never talking down to its aud...

I had bought this book ONLY for the story of Jim Butcher, that hadn’t been published anywhere else. As luck happens, except that story, and one by Kelly Armstrong, and a classic one from the golden oldie Mike Resnick, rest of the stories were unadulterated crap. Somebody needs to drop the editor ...
Death Warmed Over (2012)

I am so on the fence about this, but I feel like the concept alone deserves a star, so 3.5 to 4 it is.On the one hand, I could not get past the often heavy-handed nature of the humour. Anderson goes for the obvious joke at every opportunity, like a corny dad who cannot be stopped. If he'd just le...

Zombie PI Dan Chambeaux, with Robin, the lawyer half of their business and Sheyenne, Dan’s ghostly girlfriend who does everything else in the office, take on a number of cases for their unnatural clients in this second installment. Some of the things being tackled are the rights of golems, livin...
Dark Between the Stars, The (2014)

I've read the Hellhole books that Kevin J. Anderson Co - write with Brian Herbert. They were to date the best sci-fi books I had ever read. The Dark Between The Stars rates up there with them. Each chapter is written about a particular recurring character and what is happening to them at this poi...

The setting is really cool. It has little to do with real science or hard sci-fi but as a quasi-fantasy space opera it works really well. It is epic in the way that high magic epic fantasy is epic, except it has a unique setting and creatures in space rather than the normal epic fantasy tropes....
Resurrection, Inc. (1988)
3.53 of 5 Votes: 3
This was a very strange experience for me. I have never really been all that interested in zombies or the reanimation of the deceased within the Sci-Fi genre. I just never took to this novel, maybe my lack of interest in the subject played a major part in that. The characters were fine, the idea ...
Of Fire and Night (2006)
3.91 of 5 Votes: 1
The threads are coming together as the battle ramps up. This kind of plot always feels a bit contrived of course - how realistic is that the good guys scramble together a sufficient defense with just enough time to spare? Timing tends not to be symmetrical, and this aberration is all the more exp...

This novelization of the film of the same name was a nice little read. It was an ok book, fitting if you want to relax and not think about something too much without running the risk to be infuriated by bad writing. It is not a book I would say you need to read but its also not something that wou...

This was simply horrific. I think my comments made below while reading this atrocity of storytelling should be more than adequate convey my dismay, but I can't resist the temptation to throw a few gifs into a scathing review. So here goes. Anderson's characterization of the Big Three (Luke, Leia,...

Another one of those books that I have yet I don't know why exactly. I am a huge fan of X-Files. I used to watch it like crazy when Netflix decided to put up all the episodes on Instant. This book read exactly like an episode of the show. I got to say that this book was written full of coincidenc...

this book doesn't require any vast Star Wars knowledge or brain cells to read and understand, it's actually quite a good book. I thought it was organized a little better than the others too, since they all seemed to have something to do with each other, and flowed along as a full story better tha...

I'm going to attempt to write a few lines on each story as I read them so bear with me on this one. I remember when I first received this as a gift back in '95 for Christmas and being so, so excited to finally read all the back stories of the denizens shown in what to me was the best set of scen...

(Every time I read the character name, Basil Wenceslas, I want to sing "looked out"... I know, but my mind must be a little weird.) This is another one of those books where the rating tended to slide between 3 and 4 as I went along. This book does tend to ramble a bit, but then the author has giv...

This was the first Star Wars expanded universe book I ever read, and as mediocre as it is, it's primarily responsible for my obsession with Star Wars (and the EU) throughout my last two years of high school. Simply by existing, it was awesome back then. There was MORE STORY after the movies. More...

Where Gwen is serious, scientific, and analytical, Vic is fun-loving, spontaneous, and outgoing. Older by a mere five hours, Gwen likes to think of herself as the one in charge. Vic likes to...
